Re: Google Play in-app purchasing: Error [DF-AA-20]

Well that's a google play error, so I don't think it's anything related to Ren'Py. But I've never seen that error myself so not sure.

Re: How crowded is the visual novel market now?

It's super crowded because it's really simple to make a VN. To make a good/exceptional VN it's still hard of course :)
But I'd say it's not much crowded than, for example, RPGMaker XP games. There are a tons of those as well!

Re: [Blackcrow Studio] ANIME BACKGROUND ART for Visual Novel

I've worked with them (needed some more backgrounds quickly for my next RPG) and the result/speed were both great. Recommended.

Cool thanks for the explanation! As soon as my main connection works again I'll try it (now it's impossible for me to download it lol).

Re: Ren'Py 6.99.14 Prereleased

Just curious, did you do any benchmarks (assuming it's possible) about the speed improvements over the old version?
That's the thing I am more interested into (especially on mobile) :)

Showing disabled menu item

Is there a way to know the condition of a menu item and manipulate it? I know about the screen choice(items) but as far as I know, the "cond" it's not passed. What I want to do, is display the menu choice but not clickable, a bit like Fallout series. For example a choice might require 10 Strength, a...

Re: How Does Ren'Py Handle Framerate?

Wouldn't be the easiest solution to allow developer to pre-load textures/images as needed? what the old texture_cache was doing? I mean, Ren'Py is great for loading things on the fly with zero loading times, but sometimes in particular situations you might want to preload 50 small textures like in t...

Re: Ren'Py 6.99.13 Released

I found a bug, or at least a different behavior vs previous stable release. I use a Dynamicimage and in previous version was running fine, in this one I get this crash: I'm sorry, but an uncaught exception occurred. While running game code: File "game/gameflow.rpy", line 1141, in script call screen ...

Re: RenPy 6.99.13 Prereleased

Cool, in desktop computers thanks to their power there was no problem (at least in my games) but I noticed this in mobile versions of my RPGs - many times during fight the audio was skipping when the combat animations were playing. I'm going to give it a try to see if fixes this :)

Re: Steam and non-Steam distributions

This is one of the main reasons why in future games I'll use only Steam or Itch.io. Blame Apple and MS (though at least on Windows is less annoying). I wrote about this in my latest blog: http://www.winterwolves.net/blog/2017/1 ... amenities/

Also consider that 99% of people contacting you to do a fan translation, will disappear in a black hole without finishing anything :lol:

Re: Weird maximize/ minimize bug

What Mac OS do you have? Macs (as usual lol) have a lot of weird issues. I remember one of my games doing this and it was because of an "old" MacOS version. When the user updated to a newer OS, problem went away.

Re: (commercial) Planet Stronghold: Colonial Defense

The sequel to my first game will be a RPG too :)
And yes I will change the video, I already asked Aleema to do it (not a big change, don't have time/money to redo it completely, but at least show also the manga art).

Re: (commercial) Planet Stronghold: Colonial Defense

Bumping this thread because I decided to update this game to also have optional manga art. You can instantly switch between the old style to the new manga style. All the main character and the romance CGs have been redone. The romance CG in particular now have full nudity if you choose the "uncensor...
