Re: Ren'Py 7.0 Released

Congrats! I still remember how Ren'Py was 10 years ago, already good compared to other tools to make VN (and also more than VNs!), but now it's really a pleasure to use :)

Re: No one using BMT Micro anymore?

Saw this thread only now :) I was sort of FORCED to move from BMT to itch.io. I must thank the various MS and Apple for making their OSes require codesign. Direct sales were dropping insanely during past years, and I discovered the reason... unless you codesign your app, the OSes will display variou...

Re: a word of warning about itch.io

Today after filling the new tax form, I got the first of the many payments they owed me, so I think everything is solved :)

Re: a word of warning about itch.io

I got a reply by email this morning, looks like the situation should be fixed in a week or so (I presume also for everyone else). Crossing fingers :)

a word of warning about itch.io

If you're a creator thinking to sell your game on itch.io, right now I wouldn't advise it. They're very late with payments and sadly it appears it's not just me: https://itch.io/t/233033/payout-taking-forever I hope this gets solved quickly of course. But as it is, the situation is VERY WORRYING... :(

Re: A bunch of visual novels with mature content on Steam are getting pulled/threatened with removal

Yes I think could work like that. My latest RPG Cursed Lands had an unusually long review time (25 days!!!) and they explicitly asked me to send a cheat to unlock all the romance CGs. Then they approved it, but the same day they sent me the notice for Roommates. So in the end, I put a censored versi...

Re: A bunch of visual novels with mature content on Steam are getting pulled/threatened with removal

No, the nudity update was done the same way both on my site and on Steam, since in those times (June last year) seemed that the policy was "adult content allowed at full speed" :lol:
In the worst case I'll revert it to be the usual "uncensor patch" system.

Re: A bunch of visual novels with mature content on Steam are getting pulled/threatened with removal

Same here. They said: We would like to take a second look at your game and we will send you a follow up email with more information. If your game has remained unchanged since its first approval and release, and is properly described and labeled as 18+, our response will most likely not have any furt...

Re: A bunch of visual novels with mature content on Steam are getting pulled/threatened with removal

It is ridiculous to say that Visual Novels where you spend hours getting to know a character and build a relationship with them and THEN have a naked scene are worse than a game like Grand Theft Auto 5 where you can - again - get first person naked lap dances, pick up prostitutes where you can rece...

Re: A bunch of visual novels with mature content on Steam are getting pulled/threatened with removal

I just got a notice for my game Roommates :D The original game was rather tame, but last year in June I added a free bonus content with optional full nudity CGs. Apparently from what I understood it's a bunch of people who are going around playing the inquisitors, reporting any game they deem "porno...

Composite doc missing

I don't know if I'm blind, but I can't seem to find anymore the documentation both for im.Composite and LiveComposite. I know they've been renamed, but even searching just for "composite" returns nothing. Since it's probably the most used function of Ren'Py ever (unless you have characters all weari...

Need video trailer for game

Unfortunately the person that usually does my video trailer can't work right now, and I need a trailer done relatively quickly (2 weeks max). The video itself is not complex at all, it's for my latest RPG (more info here: http://winterwolves.com/cursedlands.htm) I have already the full audio file, a...
