Re: BUG: save that brings you back to previous point

The original coder has fixed this, it was indeed a complex problem of call out of context and jumps. Sorry you can delete this thread if you want (in the end was my fault :lol:)

Re: BUG: save that brings you back to previous point

In my case it seems was due to a renpy.call_out_of_context in the end, but it was still a strange behaviour

BUG: save that brings you back to previous point

I got a strange super-weird behavior I've never seen in any game before, so was wondering if anyone had any clue about this: I have this match3 engine I got coded and seems to work fine. After the game ends, I jump to a label. Then there's a normal renpy text for the story. If I save in that point, ...

Re: Steam Achievement Not Unlocking

For that you'd need to ask Pytom (Ren'Py main coder).

Re: Steam Achievement Not Unlocking

If you're on a Mac, then it can happen. On Windows everything works without problems.

Re: Why most visual novels stay as demos for so long.

I'm not a KS expert (I plan to start using it however) but if you have a track record of finishing games or you can show very nice artwork, you don't even need a demo to get some good funding ($20k+ and up). Well, mostly if you do adult VNs :lol:

Re: Ren'Py 7.3.5 Released

I have experienced a different behavior with same code, I was using 7.2- something before (I can't remember it sorry). It's some kind of ATL/alignment issue. I have this transform code: transform cd_transform: # This is run before appear, show, or hide. xcenter 1.15 ypos 0.01 alpha 0.0 on appear: li...

Re: Are dating sims just an excuse for porn?

As other said, there are many dating sim WITHOUT sex. Those with NSFW *usually* sell a lot better. But it all depends on quality. You can have a poorly written/drawn NSFW that won't sell and a cute/fluffy dating sim well written and drawn that will sell a lot. And I disagree that an artist drawing N...

Re: Normal or Fishy VN Company?

I've worked with A LOT of writers, and I've never asked such thing. A test scene yes, but 2000 words long seems a bit excessive. As for the pay, I think 8 cents / word is more than what 99% of indies doing VNs could afford (doing some simple math with an average length of 80-90k words plus original ...

Re: MacOS Catalina - Releasing on Steam

Or simply ignore MacOS completely. 90% of indie devs I know, including myself, are going to do it. Some of them earning six figures a year so would be definitely worthwhile to do a mac port, but they still can't be bothered to do all this mess just to have our grace Mac decide to allow us running th...

Re: MacOS Catalina

The 90% of indie developers are just going to dump mac support. I know at least 10 major indie devs who quit, and some are using macs as their development platform... lol

Re: Is is Worth to Release Your Game on Steam to Reach Wider Audience?

Gog refused my VN/RPGs as well (several years ago). So like all super-curated store, it really seems random depending on who looks at your game (like was Steam before Greenlight/open).

Re: a warning about Google Play

I have no clue, but when I showed them an article/review and Steam page of 5 years older they understood that "maybe" I made that game way before it showed up on their store :) Another time they banned an app because "I was showing inappropriate ads to minors". NONE of my apps had any ads! When I po...
