Error with string Substitution inside a voice tag?

Renpy complains about an error in a voice line where I queue two files of which one uses string substitution. I assume it once worked (some years and renpy versions ago). Now I just can't see the error? Esp. since the traceback indicates a correct substition ("Spieler" German for player, is the play...

Re: Our Personal Space [Sci-fi] [Relationship Sim] [Free]

I had my first play through. That's a nicely done project. Being someone who prolongs working on his projects for decades... >_> My respect for finishing such kind of "different" game. Towards the end, where ("my") Kelly showed her doubts about staying. I wondered if she'd get the chance to choose t...

Re: Aurora Fall

@mikey - You did it! \^_^/ Now seeing that it has become a 3GB download and reading about your shifted focus towards "beauty", I feel that I should not have hold back, keeping the sound files reasonably small and that perhaps I should or could have reflected that intended "beauty" in addition throug...

[solved] How and where to add a function for a bar?

http://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewtopic.php?p=330237 I think the preferred way is something like: bar value VariableValue("foo", 100) "You think"? o_0; This topic didn't really help me figuring it out. I want to add another audio volume slider under preferences. Adding the slider in screen.rpy w...

double zoom?

I have an ATL image which I want to move out to the left with a dissolve. Since " moveoutleft " with its 0.5 seconds moves too fast, I ended up using an ATL transform. However it appears that using show twice also applies the "zoom of 0.5" in the image twice as well, (which is why I added a "zoom 1....

Re: Do you feel cheated if choices do not affect the ending?

As others said before, to me it also depends on the expectations you raise. I have seen quite a number of triple AAA games, "Mass Effect" included, which failed miserably with their "ending(s)" or so-called 'choices that make a huge difference'. Those are outright marketing lies. On a side note: If ...

Re: "Press X to not Die"- Opinions on Quick Time Events

Yeah QTEs frustrate me in console games when I'm able to beat a boss using my own skill and all of a sudden I have to press a button sequence which I didn't expect at all since I was expecting a non-interactive death sequence and resolution cutscene. "Not expected" is it. I recall "Policenauts" ver...

Re: What profession should an adult protagonist have?

Interesting input, thank you - all of you. I deliberately did not disclose how the protagonist comes to having to take the place of another person. But reading your answers I should have worded my question differently. Granted most of you are writers and this is it what shows in your replies :wink: ...

Re: What profession should an adult protagonist have?

A doctor might be a bit too hardcore. Exterminator isn't a bad idea. Since you come around this way. One idea is an analytical chemist. So the protagonist would need direction, but would not be too involved to end up endangering his environment too quickly, since the story shall lead to a different ...

What profession should an adult protagonist have?

Since I am out of the high school phase my stories (or ideas about stories) are concerning adults. A couple of RenPy VNs I played where pretty geeky (computer stuff), which - being a geek myself - I like(d). But it might be off-putting players who are less technically inclined. In quite a number of ...

Re: Stop SOPA - USA members, please read

I didn't read through all posts, but a thought came to my mind. If SOPA allows to shut down/block sites with allegedly copyright infringement(s). How do site admins protect themselves against 'attacks'? In the sense of big company A doesn't like a certain competition B and has a couple of "volunteer...

Re: Be rejected by the love interest (Ending)?

I am a big fan of games that offer real choices with consequences. Many big video games claim they have that feature, even though they don't. Esp. in romantic relationships I like a sense of 'realism'. Simply because you give a love interest a couple of gifts and meet them a couple of times, does no...
