Well, it opened the file. But what is this 'layer' thing I keep hearing about anyway? How does that work on the files?

Re: Question About Ren'Py Text Box

By the way, since I can't draw do you know of any sites that offer free anime-like backgrounds for games like these hmmm? Check the OELVN Community Wiki . Thanks. But most of their character links led to .psd files there. I don't have photoshop, and I'm not willing to shell out six-hundred_and_some...

Question About Ren'Py Text Box

Is there any way to make the text box vanish and then return if you want to look at the picture for awhile?

Re: How Do I Get Midi Files To Play Here

I decided to just spend money on a converter. Has anyone tried this one here http://www.supernova-soft.com/midi_converter/mc.htm ? If you have, let me know what you think of it before I buy it.

Re: How Do I Get Midi Files To Play Here

I used to use Timidity on Windows XP as well. It's just a straightforward render. Not sure if the various distros have changed since, but Synthfont is far more flexible. I ended up porting my Timidity soundfonts over to Synthfont. It's not the software, it's the soundfonts and/or your soundcard. Tr...

Re: How Do I Get Midi Files To Play Here

That's not recommended. The reason I removed midi support is that it caused crashing on x86 macs. It also didn't work all that well on linux. Trust me, using rendered oggs is a much better approach. I had wanted to ask this for a while, is it possible to have a code that people can just paste it in...

Perhaps someone could step up and render the midis for you?
What program do you use on midis? Does it do a good job turning them into ogg ones? If so, please let me know the name of it then.

Re: How Do I Get Midi Files To Play Here

Maybe I can just use an older version of renpy that does have midi support.

Re: How Do I Get Midi Files To Play Here

I think Synthfont was recommended for this : http://www.synthfont.com/ Synthfont just plays them, it doesn't convert them, do you know any free conversion programs? Yes it does convert them. See #1.) in the attached diagram. #2.) These are the midi instruments used when you compose the song. #3.) T...

Re: How Do I Get Midi Files To Play Here

Synthfont just plays them, it doesn't convert them, do you know any free conversion programs? Playing them is often enough, since you can then use any old recorder to get at least a wave file out of them. Can you name one and tell me how to do that? I'm sure I've used WinAmp for this kind of thing ...
