Any unofficial but reliable documents, changelogs, screenshots are welcome.
You can freely edit this post or insert them to the archive.

Teascript-vb documentation: https://wohlsoft.ru/pgewiki/Category:TeaScript.vbs

Up to now, all bugs which reported in correct format have been fixed, you can continue to report bugs, they will be fixed in a while if you report them in correct format, there are lots of good examples can teach you how to report them in bug report forum.
Of course, you can ignore these rules and report them casually, or keep silence and waste your time on wait a 'perfect' version, I don't care that.

Anyway, I can fix a bug in a few minutes if you reported it correctly, much shorter than reply those wrong formatted posts, and I don't want to waste more time on reply. so, if I can't repeat the bug you reported, I will replace the Topic icon of your post to 'Green Question Mark', that means you need to upload more details(level files, scripts, videos, images etc) if you really want to the fix it, after enough details are added, the Topic icon will be reset. If I think what you reported IS NOT a bug, the Topic icon will be replace by 'Blue Infomation Mark', you can also upload more details(to show how it works in previous version) if you still have question.

The online video/image hosting sites in the following list(Incomplete, but appeared in bug report forum) are inaccessible in my region, you'd better consider this before report bug:
Online video: Youtube, Dailymotion
Image hosting: Imgur, Discord CDN, Dropbox, Postimg.cc
Cloud drive: Google driver, Dropbox, Yandex


Full game package
Mirror 1 (WohlSoft)
Mirror 2 (Yandex-Disk at Wohlstand)
Mirror 3 (Yandex-Disk at 5438A38A)

Tip: To unpack 7z archives is suggested to use the 7-Zip archiver.
Be careful! Some antiviruses may detect "smbx.exe" as a "heruristic/generic trojan". It's a false positive caused by heruristic scanners of antiviruses. If you got an antivirus report like "HEUR", "Generic", don't worry, it's one of possible false positives caused by a heruristic scanner. If you getting alarm of your antivirus, feel free to send the smbx.exe to your antivirus software vendor as a false positive to let them verify it and make an update that will fix this false positive. Avast Antivirus also gives "DREP" alert which means "Unknown reputation". It's paranoia regarded to rare files. It should go away after ~10+ downloads on various devices.

Small update packs

** To use these files, you MUST download a full game package first. **
Fix version(EXE Only):
The version number will appear in the bottom of splash screen from patch 6, you can check it to see whether you are using real patch x, since some anti-virus softwares may stop you to patch files.

About bug reporting
Generally, the bugs will be fixed if you properly reported them and they can be reproduced, if the "bug" you reported hasn't been fixed, that may be because:
  • You didn't report them properly. You should report a bug with instructions, pictures or videos explaining how to trigger it, and more detailed instructions are preferred if the triggering process is complex. If a bug is always happening in a specific level, you should upload the level file when reporting.
  • What you reported is not a bug. You found some features didn't work ONLY in your level but works fine in other level, why do you think this is a bug?
  • You found a feature differ from what you expect, and it has no help to your episode, so you think this is a "bug", why do you think so?
  • You reported too many bugs and I forget to fix some of them.
If you insist on reporting bugs in your own way(didn't report them properly), your report will be ignored.
