Opinions on Player Data Tracking

AKA Please convince me to stop being so data-crazy... I've noticed that, over the past year since my first commercial game was released, I've been getting more and more tempted by the use of analytic data to compensate for not getting the kind of feedback I'd like. While I'd not have any information...

Re: Main menu buttons are gone, how to add them back in

I'm glad to hear it worked out. I'll keep that in mind if I use a video in any of my games, should I not find another way to do it before then.

Re: Main menu buttons are gone, how to add them back in

Try uncommenting the "pause" command and see if that does anything. It's possible that the video doesn't wait to finish before moving to the next label. (The version I put in the code above is for 10.0 seconds, but you can also make it require a click to advance by using just "pause" with no argumen...

Re: Main menu buttons are gone, how to add them back in

Well, the first thing I can think of is: your title menu is the screen "main_menu", correct? If so, the screen definition here (if it even runs at all from inside a label) would probably overwrite the entire main menu screen. It would be a better idea to simply define the image as something like "im...

Re: [Open] Music composer for hire

JadeVater helped a great deal with the composition of the soundtrack for Eldritch University, especially when it came to draft clips of tracks when I wasn't sure of the overall direction to take. I really like how the soundtrack turned out, and I may consider JadeVater for future projects as well. I...

Re: Interactive Director: Removing Attributes from a Layered Image

Thanks for looking into this. I actually didn't even realize my comment had been noticed, and was about to ask if I could look at the code for the director to take a look myself. Speaking of which, I did look into the code after I saw it on GitHub. And I've hacked together a system that will hopeful...

Re: Love Interest Mentioning Past Relationships

While I understand the concept of the conservation of details to those that are the most plot-relevant, I feel like some information doesn't always have to directly tie into the story. Mentioning little details every once in a while can help make characters and settings feel more developed without c...

Re: Love Interest Mentioning Past Relationships

Thanks for the feedback so far. I'll try to keep these things in mind when I get around to writing more for the characters in question. (Since the character that I'm most worried about is 34-35 years old and part of a game that will probably be free, I'll probably just let them bring up the past rel...

Love Interest Mentioning Past Relationships

Here's something I've been thinking about lately: what do players of romance games think of love interests that mention or discuss past relationships? I have a character or two in something that I'm working on who have been shaped by past relationships, but I'm a bit worried how players will perceiv...

Re: Interactive Director: Removing Attributes from a Layered Image

I was about to ask this question again, so I did a search to make sure it hadn't been answered already. This was the most recent related post, which makes me think there has been no answer. So, is there no way to remove an attribute within the director? Perhaps due to some kind of limitation? It see...

Re: Looking for Japanese City Interior BGs

Thanks for the input. For now, I've decided to go with buying some more royalty-free packs from Minikle, since I found most of what I need among their other packs. I just wish I didn't need to spend almost $100 to get what I need... (At least I can use them in other projects as well, as opposed to c...

Looking for Japanese City Interior BGs

Not sure if this is the right subforum, but I couldn't tell where else would be best... I'm looking for some background assets that are roughly 1280x720 or that aspect ratio, with the main part of the background being centered for cropping (like portrait mode). These particular backgrounds I don't f...

Re: Eldritch University [Horror][GxG][Commercial]

The game now has a Steam Store Page, which has been added to the top post. (The Steam page also has the same demo as the itch.io page, for those who prefer to stay in the Steam ecosystem but want to check out the demo.)
