Re: Multiple text boxes on-screen at once

I can't be of much help myself, but you might want to take a look at this phone message system or this chat log system. Good luck with your game!

Re: Shadows on sprites

Could you maybe post an example of your art? With and/or without the shading? In general, the most important thing about shading the face might be understanding where the shadows should go. Learning about the planes of the face is very useful even for stylized art. Some examples: one . two . three ...

Re: Do you "play" or "read" Visual Novels?

I play VNs, in the same way I would play any other type of interactive fiction game. If you can either fail (i.e., get a bad ending) or replay for different outcomes, I will generally consider it a game. Mixed formats are also not that rare, either be it for VNs with RPG or mini-game parts, or othe...

Re: Diversity in Visual Novels

That's a great counterpoint to what I said about culture and race! I still do think that, depending where you are, race can play quite a part in the culture that you grow up in, but being black in the U.S. would definitely lead to a completely different experience than being black in Africa - and, ...

Re: Is there any way to create a personality quiz in Ren'Py?

Here's another option for a quiz code! I used it once to make a 'Which character are you?' quiz for practice and I just didn't feel like keep tracking of the point scores myself. I hope it helps! # The game starts here. label start: $ TypeA = 0 $ TypeB = 0 $ TypeC = 0 "Answer the questions honestly...

Re: Diversity in Visual Novels

I filled the survey! I am a little surprised there are no questions about our opinion of diversity in VNs, but I understand that might not be the focus of your study. What I mean is that I personally tend to choose VNs that have character types I like rather than ones that focus on diversity; I thi...

Re: Good things about Otome games?

Alright, so we always need more otome games - even though I already have like 20 in my backlog right now OTL - so I want to contribute to your research! I want to stop myself from writing an entire essay, though, so I'll just answer this based on personal opinions and preferences. 1. The first and ...

Re: In game menu with single use choices

If I understood your issue correctly, then you can use something like this. # The game starts here. label start: $ OptionARead = False $ OptionBRead = False $ OptionCRead = False N "This is where the story starts." label firstchoice: N "There's a choice menu coming up!" menu: "Option A." if OptionA...

[SOLVED] Coding for In-Text Menu?

I have spent the past few hours trying to code a Ren'py menu inside the actual text. After research and failed attempts at creativity, the closest I have made it is using hyperlinks, which eventually doesn't work because you can just click anywhere to move forward rather than selecting a choice and...

Re: Single Save/Load File?

FileSave() and FileLoad() should do the job. Alternatively, you can use renpy.save() and renpy.load() . # The game starts here. label start: scene black N "GAME TITLE" menu: "start": jump begin "save": $ FileSave(1, confirm=False)() "load": $ FileLoad(1, confirm=False)() "Save file does not exist."...

Re: Art Dumpage! Show your art ^^

So Katta has probably forgotten this by now, but I was her Lemmasoft Secret Santa in 2015 and drew an humanoid alien as her gift, and said I would make a space otome eventually. Now "eventually" has come, and I wanted to show off this GUI and the alien love interest's sprite I made!. (*^▽^)/ [attac...

Re: On Moving On?

Hm... maybe put together something like an art book, with descriptions of the characters and stories, as they are? A way to give them a little bit of life, and their stories as they were, so you get closure to the creative process. It doesn't have to be public, or could be just dropped unannounced ...
