Ohhhh. Oops, sorry! So I was missing something obvious after all :)

[bug] Auto-forward not working with self voicing

Auto-play/auto-forward doesn't seem to work when self voicing is enabled. I noticed it with a project using 7.2.2 but downloaded the latest release, 7.4.4, and created a new empty project, and the problem remained. It's easily tested: press V to enable self voicing, then try clicking auto, and it fa...

Dark and Light Colour Schemes Source Code

The code adds a button in the Preferences screen that lets the user switch between Dark and Light colour schemes. There's a tutorial within this project to explain how to add the code to your own game and then tweak the colours and UI. https://spiralatlas.itch.io/dark-and-light-colour-schemes-for-re...

Northanger Abbey [Any x M, F] [Romance] [Comedy]

https://i.imgur.com/qwBDkBQ.jpg Some might consider you an unlikely protagonist for a dating sim. You have no mysterious childhood friends, no vanished memories, and not one dead parent to your name. But at seventeen you have finally been invited to your first season in Bath, and thus stand at the ...

Variable Text Size Without Breaking Your GUI

This is a bit hacky, and I've only used it in my game. But hopefully people will find it useful! I probably could have done a lot of this with styles, but styles confuse me, so I didn't. Code used from: Ren'Py All-In-One GUI Template the in-built Renpy accessibility screen (found in 00accessibility....

What do people want from a sprite dollmaker?

I posted a Renpy based dollmaker to the Creative Commons subforum a little while ago but didn't get any replies, and am wondering if it's worth working on further. So: What would people find useful in a dollmaker specifically geared towards making Renpy Sprites? And specifically, what would make my ...

Re: "Girlfriend Material" [GxG Romance/Fantasy]

HMM. A lot of this sounds interesting, but regardless of where the plot goes, I would find someone who was ok with creating a sentient being in order to date them unplayably unlikeable. How would the created girlfriend have the ability to consent, or have agency in her life in general? Two approache...

Re: BookSLEEPer [Otome] [Stat-Raiser] [GxB,GxG] ~NaNoRenO'17

This looks super cute and endearingly nerdy. Can you say which characters are romance options? It looks like a lot of them have canon partners (thanks to their original books), are you going to have to break up the existing relationship to date them or is there ever a poly option? And can you "succe...

Re: Pipe Dream [GxB][GxG][Otome][Satire, Cautionary Tale]

Ah, ok! Ok, that's a game setup I can respect, there is a huge difference between "romance narratives are bad" and "some romance narratives are bad". I've tried/am trying to explore similar ideas in my own (still unfinished >.>) otome games, including the "some love interests wave big abuse red flag...

Re: Pipe Dream [GxB][GxG][Otome][Satire, Cautionary Tale]

And another comment from my friend, after I linked them your reply. I 100% agree with them, and they articulated the issues with the child abuse aspect better than me (their "my friend" is me :)): i sure hope you're not saying that writing about child abuse is a "what not to do"! i mean, i'm aware t...

Re: Pipe Dream [GxB][GxG][Otome][Satire, Cautionary Tale]

Ohhhhh ok. I must admit while I was playing I was thinking it was weirdly well written for something so full of cliches, but toned down my criticism to be polite and encouraging. But it doesn't feel like an obvious parody, no. Just weirdly inconsistent in tone/quality. Looking back on the game with ...

ALSO. I was discussing the game with a friend with no Lemmasoft account who is really into dating sims, though their computer is kinda broken right now so they couldn't play yours. Anyway, they asked me to pass on this comment, I don't actually entirely agree (I think crappy representation is better...

Re: Pipe Dream [GxB][GxG][Otome][Slice of Life, Psychologica

I played the game twice, seeing everyone's good end except Akio, and the bad ends for Gary, Akio, and Cain. First, the things I liked: Overall it's fun. The writing is very good, it flows well and is funny and believable. I like the characters too, all the love interests are cute and likeable (or at...

Re: Red String of Fate [GxB][Otome|Fantasy|Slice of Life|Com

1. What do you think about the story premise/characters so far? I'm not usually a fan of fate/soulmates but am curious to see how it works in a branching narrative where it's clear she doesn't have One True Love. The trailer left me unclear on what the actual *story* will be, though your description...
