Re: The Witch of Pondgulch [Free] [Fantasy | Historical | Dark | Drama] [Kinetic]

Oh my! This is a lovely little project you have! Definitely feels reminiscent of the YA novels I was all about as a kiddo; +10 points for witches and period pieces. 1) What sort of tone does the background music create? How could the novel’s soundscape be improved? Honestly, the music stands to be s...

Re: Languages!

Gosh! I love all the variance here! I've...got a bit of a list myself? 1. English (native language) 2. Spanish (grew up speaking it as per family/friends/region) 3. Japanese (started self studying in around 2011, eventually took a few years in school and am pretty proficient! I was supposed to have ...

Re: What was the first visual novel you played?

Hatoful Boyfriend was technically my first fresh off the initial localization, but Black Wolves Saga was what got me hooked back in 2012. Prior to, I had been pretty keenly aware of VNs, just never managed to get my hands on any à la broke teenager fortune-- even BWS was a close shot since I snagged...

Re: Vora [Post-Apocalyptic] [Pixel] [Commercial]

The premise of this is wicked interesting! The whole use of the "action" button is a nice veer from the grain, plus there could definitely be more post-apocalyptic stories that aren't so...cookie cutter, I guess? I'll be sure to keep an eye out for more updates-- best of luck!

Re: From the Sugar Plum Kingdom (Political, Fantasy)

3) Is there anything that pops out to you the most? GUI <3 Oh gosh, it's so darn pretty and detailed, like, how did you do that? I'm a total noob when it comes to drafting the GUI (I try to make the designs for it which makes our artist want to pull her hair out xD ). And the art also caught my att...

I can't sit down and do a proper update quite yet, but this is one of the roughs for the revised logo!

Re: From the Sugar Plum Kingdom (Political, Fantasy)

YAYAY I am ridiculously happy to hear that! It's such a huge part of war, imho-- a lot of decisions in war ARE politics, after all. I'm happy to hear this :'D also I SWEAR you create some of the most ridiculously gorgeous GUI ever. That quit thing on the front page looks ridiculously pretty. I am s...

How to make an in-game drop down menu?

Before I get started, I'm not too great at coding yet! I learn mostly through tinkering, as one does. While I was plotting out the GUI for my game, I got the idea to make a sub-menu in-game that contains all of the excess features; the inventory navigation, the library, the stats, etc. I plan on ea...

Re: From the Sugar Plum Kingdom (Political, Fantasy)

Just dropping by with another update; among other things, I've reworked a map and some of the new GUI so that things are fluid. Though these are extremely scribble-y, they get the point across for the time being. I plan on finishing up the GUI so that I'll finally leave it alone and then move on to...

Re: From the Sugar Plum Kingdom (Political, Fantasy)

1) Does the premise sound appealing? Yes! I really want to see this completed. Political, war-time drama is one of my favourite type of stories, but VNs especially. 2) Is there anything you'd like or hope to see out of the game? Dilemma A good story. The struggles of war and politics being heavily ...

Re: From the Sugar Plum Kingdom (Political, Fantasy)

Finally getting around to shoving things together again! I'm short on time these days, but I'm happy that FSPK sat for a bit. I feel like I'm much more capable of getting what I want out of it, to say the least. I plan on updating the thread as usual with a few new assets, but for now I'll just set...

Re: Custom Textbox Text Placement

I feel a little silly again, but I'm still having some issues with the text position. I thought I had things handled at first after adjusting the aforementioned values in place of padding, but now the text is behind the box. That being said, the position itself isn't a problem anymore. It only start...

Re: Custom Textbox Text Placement

@philat Oh gosh, thanks a bunch! When I initially put it in, the box itself was off kilter and the padding was the only thing I saw mentioned anywhere. I'm really grateful for your help!

Custom Textbox Text Placement

Firstly put, I am pretty new to both Ren'Py itself as well as the forums, so I'm still in the process of learning proper coding! While working on a custom textbox for one of my games, I managed to adjust the padding so that it looked exactly as I had designed in the mockup--which wasn't too difficul...
