Re: Neural Network and VNs

From my understanding of it, the difficulty with A.I. writing lengthy fiction is it's lack of understanding of what it's writing about. It will inevitably learn to do it one day, but I think it will be one of the last things A.I. will master. Asking an A.I. to write a story is like asking it to beco...

Re: Horrified--Games DO need warning labels.

As long as a piece of art depicts fictional things, it cannot be immoral It can depict immoral things, but that doesn't make the art itself immoral The creator can promote the art in immoral ways, but that also doesn't make the art itself immoral Tagging things properly is expected, it helps people ...

Re: LGBT visual novels- How do you like your endings?

It's not about endings being good or bad, but about satisfying endings and unsatisfying endings. For example, take a horror game, you can have 10 endings in which the character dies in multiple different gruesome ways, and it can be very satisfying. It's about knowing how to write in a satisfying wa...

Re: Using SetVariable for counters?

Code: Select all

textbutton "[varA]" action SetVariable('varA',varA+1)
This definitely works, you must be getting an error somewhere else. (Of course you also need to declare the variable first)

Re: Circle status bars?

the simplest implementation of a circle bar that I've seen was simply 100 images for 100 states and a displayable that showed a correct state based of variable. I did think of that and was hoping to avoid it if possible. I also just recently had a thought to make basically the illusion of a half-ci...

Re: (Political Talk) Donald J. Trump as the 45th POTUS

I maintain that they are both equally bad in their own way, and in some sense they are equally bad in the same way. No matter which one would have been chosen it was, and is, a good reason to complain. Trump won, so it's time to complain about trump. If hillary won, complaints would be equally justi...

Every single time i have to go through this and people are ignoring it: Perhaps it may be the time to consider the possibility that if every single other person thinks you are wrong, you may, indeed, be wrong? Nah, let's face it, you are the smartest and most knowledgeable one, clearly everyone els...

Re: Fanservice: To be or not to be?

It's simple. If you think fanservice detracts from/clashes with the mood/atmosphere/story of your game, I would not include it,
if it doesn't detract, then go for it.

Re: Live Composite and Text

It's probably the text box being too narrow or lacking a defined width?
That would be my guess.

Re: Your Favourite Twist in a Story?

When the protagonist gets so pissed of at a villain that she kills her, on purpose, and doesn't feel bad about it afterwards. When a feminine looking and acting character of undefined gender actually turns out to be a boy, not a girl badly pretending to be boy, and not because he is in hiding, but r...

Re: Adding more elements to a live composite sprite effectiv

Btw, that second one should be

Code: Select all

 (0,0), im.Crop(im.MatrixColor("emptyBar.png", im.matrix.hue(samBarHue)), (0,0,samBarValue,30)),
i'll fix the above example, there was a syntax mistake.
Also, the crop can never be larger than the picture itself, or it will crash.

Re: Adding more elements to a live composite sprite effectiv

If you want to get more fancy you could use a crop on in (0, 0), im.Crop("empty_bar.png", (0, 0, samanthaBarValue, 30)), This way you only need one picture and the samanthaBarValue crops the image to that size you can get a lot more fancy with this and do fun stuff like this for example (0,0), im.Cr...

Re: How to setup kwargs for action "Function"? (KeyError)

Ok, first, i don't think this is going to do what you want it to do if you assign a variable inside a function in python, i think that variable is private to the function, as an example: a = 5 renpy.say(n, a) # will output 5 def editValue(): a = 3 renpy.say(n, a) # will output 3, but this is the loc...
