Is there anything specific you'd like to know about?
Not at this time! The title Summer In Trigue really says it all :D

Re: Blogging help

One thing about hosting your own Wordpress site---unless you keep up to date on Wordpress, it's easy for you to become a hacking target. The hack that drove me off a self-hosting site dropped in backdoors so that even when I upgraded Wordpress they were still able to get back in and hose the site. I...

Re: How do I make a Character Gallery!

What I would do is create an image gallery http://www.renpy.org/doc/html/rooms.html that is specifically for images of your characters. I recommend making special game-window-sized images and using them, for examples of such images see here: http://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewtopic.php?f=43&t=27138

Re: Does anyone want to participate in a Twitter Chat?

Yeah, but when's a good time? And what subject should we pick? Both interesting things to mull over.

Re: Does anyone want to participate in a Twitter Chat?

Seems like an existing popular hashtag is #visualnovel. Why not use that? A literal chat is probably not suited to Twitter and would work better with IRC or a Skype group. Twitter chats are very much a thing in the fiction writing world because they can be followed through the auto-updating search ...

If cow was added recently, you will need to restart the game, plus any previous saves won't work.

Re: How to make a list of obtained endings

Try this code in your screens.rpy: screen endings: tag menu use navigation $ all_endings = [(1, "Liar"), (2, "Proof")] vbox: for ending in all_endings: $ ending_number = ending[0] $ ending_name = ending[1] $ ending_string = "% 2d. ---------------------------------" % (ending_number,)) if ending_name...

Re: Kaguya Hime [Free] [Fantasy] [JP Folktale] [Patreon]

CG Artist Hired! I’ve hired an artist, Sayuui, for CG art for Kaguya Hime. These are special illustrations that are used for endings and to-be-continued art. This will affect the pacing of some chapters, because I want each ending to be special. Yes, even the “bad” ones. But in return, you will get...

Re: Requesting advice on complex choreography and dialogue

Probably the best advice is to read great dialogue and pick up what happens in it. The best dialogue results when two characters are at odds with each other, either directly (not necessarily a fight, but certainly a disagreement) or because one of them has a secret that affects their answers in intr...

Re: [HELP] Kaguya Hime [Free] [Fantasy] [JP Folktale] [Patre

Ok, CGs are probably not needed, but are helpful. I'm going to go ahead and spend for them. Or trade if possible.

Re: Newbie, still at drawing faces, but wanted to share...

daikiraikimi, Thank you! Yeah, I'm embarrassed at the previous face now, lol. DarkSin, Yup, this referenced art one was a lot better so I'm probably going to keep doing referenced art as you say, until I get brave and even better. Thank you so much for the tips. I'm so nascent in my art skills that ...

My current VN project is Kaguya Hime; for information about the story and characters, here is the thread:...

Re: Newbie, still at drawing faces, but wanted to share...

I am halfway done with Godfrey Gao's (or an approximation of him anyways) face:

I tried Art Studio on the iPad, using my finger. I don't think it works as well, there's no pressure sensitivity.

Re: Kaguya Hime [Free] [Fantasy] [Japanese Folktale] [Patreo

So I've been rethinking my "do everything by myself / use stock everything" approach... So I've got - Blue Forest character sprites (and they are decent enough for this story) - Stock photos for backgrounds - Stock music selected - Major GUI parts done - Coding is me - Writing is me which leaves... ...
