Re: Problem with Renpy not correctly fetching stored variabl

E, you guys can fix it yourselves by changing \renpy-6.99.12-sdk\renpy\common\00action_data.rpy line 37 PyTom suggests that more accurate is: identity_fields = [ "object" ] equality_fields = [ "field", "value" ] I made the proposed changes, and now it works! Thanks so much to everyone for helping u...

Re: Problem with Renpy not correctly fetching stored variabl

I've been playing around with trying to get this narrowed down even further by bypassing all of the events that occur on Day 13. Hopefully this will be of help to you. This build bypasses all of the day events. I've gotten this down to as far as I can get it I think, but now we're within 15 clicks o...

Problem with Renpy not correctly fetching stored variables?

I've been working with Qirien over the last few weeks to track down a rather annoying bug in the game I've been developing, and came across some really weird behavior with the modified version of the Dating Sim Engine frameworks that seems to be a bug with Renpy not correctly fetching the right vari...

Re: Xabri Academy (aka Dragon College) [Fantasy] [RPG] [Demo

Thanks for letting me know about where the wordiness comes in! I'll take another look at that scene and see what improvements can be made to it before I drop the next update in. (I'm hoping it won't be too much longer, but I'm trying to quash one bug in particular.) Your comments are extremely helpf...

Re: Xabri Academy (aka Dragon College) [Fantasy] [RPG] [Demo

Thanks for the comments, Qirien! Let me address them for you. Who are all your team members? Besides myself, I have a writer who goes by the name of Hisui. She's done probably 90% of the writing for the project so far (and then some...). For art, we have the wonderful Taylor Payton coming up with th...

This has been an incredibly important step to take, because getting the foundation set for me to offer you this has been a real trial. But now it's...

Xabri Academy (aka Dragon College) [Fantasy] [RPG] [Demo]

The energies of magic flow, streaming from a high tower. Young lords and ladies halt their discussion as the sky turns dark in the shadow of a dragon overhead. Two princesses draw blades, ready to duel over a matter of national honor. The bell tolls. And you are late for class! Just another day at X...

Re: Epic Quest (EQ) Games / The Fisch Brothers

Let this be a warning for those of you who contract: Before undertaking ANY large-scale project like this, make sure you get an advance. If they don't want to give you an advance, or do not agree to pay you in installments, you should seriously reconsider the time you will spend working for them. Th...

Re: Voiceacting in Commercial VNs-- do you?

Unless you are willing to invest a lot of time and money into doing the voice acting right, don't do it. I know that you want to put as much polish into your project as possible, and that's great. But this is one of those areas you can't easily skip on, and getting people to work for nothing is like...

Re: Help with Pricing?

Here's the real question, I think: What is your time worth to you? Five dollars for an image is extremely cheap . However, if it only takes you twenty minutes? That means you can make three images, and that becomes fifteen dollars an hour. This is a respectable sum. Since these are full-color images...
