Re: VATMOSS and crowdfunding - HELP?

Moi. Your crowdfunding provider should probably be able to give you a breakdown of income by country; if all VATMOSS requires is that you feed it the total amounts from each country, that may be enough. (One potential pitfall if you're working from a country-by-country breakdown - make sure you know...

There's more than one way to do it, but here's a snippet from Wolf Hall, with some of the text trimmed and comments added for clarity: william "Any other questions?" # First, create a new empty list to store the menu choices in. $ chose_intro_questions = [] label intro_other_questions: menu: # A men...

Re: Promoting my visual novel in Japan - Continued

My advice, for what it's worth (disclaimer: I avoid actually doing marketing work whenever possible, so I may well miss Very Important Things. And this will mostly focus on your websites because that's what I can see): The big thing you're lacking is any clear indication of the status of the Japanes...

Re: Help me find a lost game title/creator!

If it is (or might be) a Ren'Py game, I'd start with http://games.renpy.org/year/2009 . If it's not a Ren'Py game, VNDB can sort by release date, though it's a lot harder to search since it tries to cover everything.

Re: How to pay partners?

For commercial projects, normally, partner shares should be somewhere between 20% and 66.7% of gross income IMO. Exact shares depend on assessment of relative value of labour before you start development; for example, if you had one artist doing all the character/CG/UI/logo/sprite stuff while you di...

[fixed in 6.18.x] Ren'Py loses joystick focus too readily

I got a report that one of my games wouldn't accept controller input until after the player used the keyboard or mouse - which is a problem for controller-only or controller-dominant PC-as-living-room-console setups. Poking at it, it appears that Ren'Py discards controller input when renpy.display.i...

Re: Web updater with https

Ren'Py doesn't ship with SSL included. You could try recompiling Ren'Py with SSL linked in (this will be Somewhat Annoying, because you'll need to do it once for each platform); it should also be possible to write (or adapt) a Python module to use the system SSL libs. https://docs.python.org/2/libra...

Re: Pygame script in Ren'Py

I have been able to figure out how to get pygame to take over the display (that's no trick really) but I'm having a much harder time figuring out how to hand the display back to the original settings afterward. I could redo much of the code I already have to use Ren'Py type scripting but that would...

Re: if-statement doesn't do what I want, help please

The problem is that you don't have return statements after the scenea and sceneb blocks. 'return' jumps back to the line immediately after the last 'call' and keeps going from there. Since there's no return before 'label sceneb', it goes into the label sceneb block, calls sceneb1, and keeps going. T...

Oh, yay! How do I write in that additive effect to the code? :O (I wonder if the "change eye colour through gradient bar" thing that MD has is a trade secret because that looks really neat) Not a trade secret; I just fed a ui.bar's output into im.MatrixColor()'s im.matrix.hue().

Re: [Cancelled]Dropbox Integration for Save File Synchroniza

I think it should be possible to secure the save files against a malicious server operator. The way to do this would be to sign each savefile with information the server does not know, and hence can't forge. Cryptographic signing would be an option, with the (big!) advantage of sticking the sanitiz...
