Re: Cafe Memoria Deux Demo v0.1 [BxG][Slice of Life][Waitress]

Just played the first game. Enjoyed the character introductions, but I think the sequel does them more justice with the writing. Same with the art style update. They're all cuter imo~ Good stuff so far! Glad you enjoyed the prequel! And glad you like CMD's art style =) Initially, I rehired the preq...

Re: Cafe Memoria Deux Demo v0.1 [BxG][Slice of Life][Waitress]

Hiya! So to start off, I'm really enjoying the GUI. The tones of blue, the ribbon header backgrounds, the half-tone fade of the menu-- super clean and appealing. The button SFX gives it a "video game like" feel(? sounds like a tetris block landing). Text is crisp and everything is perfectly readabl...

Re: All I Want for Christmas is a Girlfriend [BxG][Romance][Xmas]

I just got done playing your game! Here are my thoughts; It was a sweet little story. It did feel a bit fast and rather cheesy, but I loved it still! The fact his day was going terrible after he thought Natalia rejected him, and then he was surprised by her delivering herself in a giant Christmas b...

Re: Last game you played?

Two games I've been playing lately: 1. Flower Knight Girl (Nutaku version) Been playing it for at least a year and a half already. I have to admit the battles can get repetitive / have no real strategy - really, once you're powerful enough you can just fast-forward most missions and be done with it ...

Re: Flipping screens horizontally

Try this: Rename your base, outfit, hair and face files to something like for example (will allow for automatic image attributes): chara_base.png chara_outfit_casual.png <- replace "casual" with the name of outfit chara_hair_normal.png <- replace "normal" with name of hairstyle chara_face_neutral.pn...

This seems so over the top. Is there a way for me to just make it into a single if statement?
I tried

Code: Select all

if activeCharacter == 1:
"outfit1.png"
"hair.png"
"face.png"

But that returns an error.
What does the error message say?

Re: Ren'Py Gripes

It'd be nice if the "window hide" statement has an option to affect overlay screens, not just the dialogue window. Because it just doesn't look right if you hide the window and have any UI stuff left in the overlays (like the quick menu, and any custom stuff like a date box). I have to resort to doi...

Suppressing the overlay when hiding window [solved]

I'm quite stumped on suppressing / hiding overlays when hiding windows. I have an overlay screen that is added to this config variable: init python: config.overlay_screens.append("dayinfo") It displays just fine, but hiding it along with the window is a bit of a problem. These don't work: scene blac...

Re: How often does one person create a full VN by themselves?

What large projects have you completed and do you know of any completed by one person? I'd like to view them. Most of my completed projects have been fairly small-scale and working with others (last release in 2015). I'm working on a fairly large-scale VN right now, with a few people hired (because...

Re: How often does one person create a full VN by themselves?

I don't have any examples, but I'd say it's probably feasible. Though the difficulty of creating a high-quality* VN on your own scales greatly with the size of the project. There's always the option to use Creative Commons assets to ease the burden, but then again we're talking about creating everyt...

Re: Mixing art styles in a project

Thanks for the responses. I pretty much agree with most of what has been said. If one were to reuse art from a previous project and decide to hire a different sprite / BG artist for a current project, unless there's a good reason to do so, it can be considered poor work ethic (lazy / unprofessional?...
