Custom Preference to Toggle Minigames?

I would like to give my players the choice of whether or not to play minigames, through the preference screen. I can code to a good degree, but I'm still getting the hang of python and screen language. Is it even possible to make custom preferences? If not, is there another way I could give my playe...

Re: Question about engines

Hey! I made a VN engine with Game Maker too! It sucked though. :( P.S I only did it because I compiled my Ren'py game with the wrong settings and it looked like it would end up being more than 700mb! Due to that misunderstanding I wasted an entire weekend trying to make an engine that would make a s...

Re: Is 5 POVs too many?

Thanks for all the input!

I think I'll do my VN with chapters but have a UI feature that allows the player to switch between POV's whenever he/she wants to.

Is 5 POVs too many?

I want to make a fantasy VN(not KN) that has multiple POVs to get the most out of my story. I'm basing this after a novel I never finished and it had 5 POV characters. Three of them travel together for much of the story. One of those three is the MC who is a thirteen year old girl with very dangerou...

What is your opinion about minigames in VN's?

What is your personal opinion about minigames in VN's? Do they add or subtract from player experience? When and where is it appropriate to use them? What kinds of minigames go well with a VN? I started this topic partly out of plain curiosity and partly because I want to know if I should use minigam...

Re: What is your opinion about using 3D art?

I can't help writing long stuff. It's in my nature. :) Anyways, thanks for all your help. I will try to use your advice(and the tutorials) for my other images.

Re: What is your opinion about using 3D art?

If I do that much coverage then that's a lot of images for a VN of this length. :(

(Even though each image is only about 67kb each, it adds up.)

Re: What is your opinion about using 3D art?

I think all three characters are important in this shot, and it's one of the establishing shots. I'm trying to get the big picture presented, then the shots will become more focused on individual characters. The man is a vampire that took the blond's memories away. When the blond had a memory in her...

What about this?

EDIT
I added shadows to this one and made the table more reflective.

Re: What is your opinion about using 3D art?

It's supposed to be a spooky scene. The protagonist(the girl) is closest to the camera and in that angle because it seemed a bit more like you were looking through her perspective. This isn't a friendly scene and the two other characters are in shadow to give an ominous feeling. I plan to have a fut...

Re: What is your opinion about using 3D art?

I changed the angle and applied a black soft brush to the overly lit parts. Does it look better?

Re: What is your opinion about using 3D art?

Okay, so the lighting is still probably really bad but I worked on the orange and blue light technique and I added shadows. I want the scene to be dark and scary and I want the lamp on the desk, but that takes away from the characters. :(

Re: What is your opinion about using 3D art?

Thanks for the tips. I'll work on it.

P.S I can't believe I forgot the shadows! All that time looking at the images and I didn't even notice?! (I feel stupid...)
