Re: Tint animated imagebuttons on hover

So! A quick update - three animated buttons with a shitload of frames each turned out not to be a good idea after all. In any case, there doesn't seem to be a way to assign a color to animated images through Ren'Py itself. This thread though shows the best way I found to have animated buttons in gen...

Re: Tint animated imagebuttons on hover

Could you define new images as tinted versions of the original frames and then build a hover animation out of those? I don't think the style definition will help you at all. That sort of color setting usually only affects things drawn directly by the game, like text. Yes, although I'm slightly worr...

Tint animated imagebuttons on hover

Hello! I have an imagebutton for which I'd like to add a hover animation. The imagebutton itself is animated, however, so simply using a tinted version of it as a file to use as a "hover" parameter is impossible, or at least very undesirable. I'd like to tint the image somehow. However, im.MatrixCol...

Re: Player Names

I suppose you want to display the player's input, right? You just have to use [variable name] in the text string.

Re: Pause after showing animations

I reckon the problem is that you're using "with dissolve", which stops everything the game is doing to show the image. You might be better off getting rid of it.

I have seen threads with a similar problem. This one could help.

Have you initialized rob_mesa before the start label using default?

Code: Select all

default robo_mesa = "None"

label start:
    "Blah Blah"
I hadn't, and now I did, and now it works! Thank you very much. But why does initializing with default works, but initializing/defining with $ doesn't?

Re: Um, can I ask for some music critique?

My thanks! I see, I really have to fix pacing and overall atmosphere. Playing more VNs will probably amend that. Which is never a bad thing anyway.

Re: Um, can I ask for some music critique?

That is very kind of you. Thanks~! I would love to work on a project, but for now I think it would be for the best if I developed my skills. I've been lurking for a while and Lemmasoft composers' portfolios' are all amazing! Sure they might have worked on projects before, but I think I might want to...

Um, can I ask for some music critique?

See, I'd like to make music for VNs someday, since music is usually what makes or breaks a VN to me. I know I'm in no position to offer services yet, though - I feel I lack in too many areas for that. So... would anyone be so kind as to give me tips regarding composition and mixing and whatever else...

Re: Music while writing?

I've realized I'm the most efficient when I have something stuck in my head. A chorus, a beat, a bass drop. But I don't usually listen to music, no. I'm far more likely to hum and whistle the tune I have stuck in my head - and it's usually bubblegum pop music, videogame music or electronica.

Re: Do good games need bad ends?

Not only does it depend on what you want to write, but also on how you write. It's generally awkward to deliver a bad ending if your style has been carefree all along - of course there is room for it, but under specific circumstances. Conversely, even the most triumphant ending will be stained by a ...
