Explanation

This page is an explanation of certain activities and features within a mod for a game made by GB Patch, XOXO Droplets. The mod is called Jerks Deserve Love! and was made by PersonOfFewTalents. This page will explain and offer walkthroughs for the following features in the mod:

  • Encouragement ~ Once the player gets a boyfriend, you'll soon get an event where JB will have to encourage one of the other guys to ask out his crush.
  • Double Dating ~ An explanation of how to go on double dates, and all of the possible double dates the player can arrange.
  • Matchmaking Dates ~ Some couples will require the player to take them on double dates before they get together. This page will explain how it works and what dates are good/bad for those couples (and whether the bad ones have exceptions).
  • Encouragement

    Once JB gets a boyfriend (it MUST be a main boyfriend, it cannot be one of the side boyfriends) you will get an event the following month where JB will have to choose one of the guys to help. Just keep the following tips in mind:

  • If you're dating Nate or Bae, the event will be less straightforward than other versions of the event. Essentially, trying to stay in the classroom has you end up helping Pran, while choosing to leave will have you help whoever the original guy was.
  • The event should happen the month after you and your boyfriend announce your status to the group. This means that even if you get together late October, if that event happens in early November, you won't be able to help anyone until December.
  • If you break up with your boyfriend before the event happens, you won't be able to see the event and you'll instead see one of the 'nothing happened' events. Doing this won't make it impossible to get anyone together in the future, though.
  • However, if you choose not to help anyone during the event, you won't ever be able to get another couple together, even if you break up with your current guy and start dating a new one. Only choose that if you're 100% sure.
  • Along that same line, once you've chosen to assist a couple, you won't be able to get another one together. Also, even if you break up with your guy, the other couple, once together, won't break up, which means you'll never be able to date either of the involved guys. If you don't want to have to start a new file just to see the other couple's scenes, I recommend saving your game at the point where you choose who to help.
  • In general, the events will happen on the 15th of the following month, with the following exceptions (to avoid conflict with other scheduled events):

  • If the event happens in December, it will fall on the 17th.
  • If the event happens in March, it will fall on the 16th.
  • If the event happens in April, it will fall in the 17th.
  • And finally, if your relationship with your boyfriend is announced in either June or July, you won't be able to see the event to help out another couple until September. This means that in the second year, if you got together in one of those months, you won't be able to get any of the other guys together.
  • Once you see the first event, the following Sunday you will see an event where the couple will officially announce (either to just JB or to the whole group) that they're a couple. You won't be able to go on a double date with any couple until they have officially announced that they're together.

    Double Dating

    Upon getting a couple together, you will then be able to go on double dates with them. Here's how:

    double date button idle

    double date button hovered

    In the place where the "be my boyfriend" button would be, you'll find this button. Click this and you'll be taken to a similar-looking screen as the date screen, but with far less date options. Just find a spot that actually has a date location you can go to with your boyfriend/couple combo and then do what you normally would for a regular date!

    Everett/Nate Double Dates:

    Shiloh: Game Center, Amusement Park

    Bae: Countryside, Fuchsia

    Jeremy: Accessory Shop, Zoo

    Pran: Game Center

    Shiloh/Bae Double Dates:

    Everett: Karaoke

    Nate: Museum

    Jeremy: Garden

    Pran: Countryside, Garden

    Jeremy/Pran Double Dates:

    Everett: Hobby Shop, Arcade

    Nate: Archery, Countryside

    Shiloh: Archery, Arcade

    Bae: Zoo

    I hope you can use this to plan in advance who you want to romance/which couples you want to get together in advance!

    Matchmaking Dates

    At the moment, you can only do matchmaking dates if you get Everett/Jeremy as your couple. This is determined via random generation - so long as you're not dating either Everett or Jeremy, that is. If you are, you'll just choose between one of the base couples.

    Whether you get Everett/Jeremy or one of the base couples will be determined at the end of your relationship announcement with whoever it is you're dating. So if you're worried about getting/not getting the couple you want, I highly recommend saving before the end of this event, so that you can always reload that save.

    The timing for the events is exactly the same as the base 3 couples' events. Scroll up to the encouragement section to see information on that. Meanwhile the matchmaking dates function exactly the same as double dates - scroll up to the relevant section to see information on that.

    As for the matchmaking dates, which I'm sure is what you're in this section for... Each date has an invisible score tied to it. This score will determine if you are successful or not in getting the couple (Everett/Jeremy) together or not. You need at least 20 Points to get them together, or at least 30 points to see them get together at the end of the game (if you haven't gone on all four dates yet). There will also be a special scene if you get at least 40 points, where you won't have to wait until the following Saturday for them to get together. Also, even if you get 20 or more points, if you go on more than 2 bad dates, you will still fail. You will only be able to go on FOUR matchmaking dates, so choose wisely.

    The scores are as follows:

    Points With Nate as BF Points With Shiloh as BF Points With Bae as BF Points With Pran as BF Bad Date?
    Archery Range +20 points +20 points +20 points +20 points No
    Accessory Shop +5 points +5 points +5 points +5 points No
