Re: There's a distribution service called Kartridge you might upload to

I wouldn't trust it. Kartridge is the distribution arm of the browser game site Kongregate. Kongregate went from launching a new feature to shutting down uploads and removing almost all comments within a week in July 2020. That effectively shuttered the website.

Re: HELP WITH A TRANSLATE!!!

Do you want a programmer or a translator? A programmer works with code. A translator works with text.

I'm assuming that the original language is Spanish.

Re: I want to create a AI

How about modifying the games own file? Or detecting if a file is missing or added, like seen in DDLC? Does anyone know how to do it? You could check if a file is present using python's file-opening functionality. What do you mean by "editing a game's files"? There's a decompiled version of DDLC on...

Re: World Building - Too much or too little? (Fantasy Genre)

you could try using "cow tools" Would you mind elaborating on that one? First time I've seen the term :) I'm using kanka.io to keep track of a lot of my world details, as well as a variety of badly organised google doc notes (they make sense to me and I know where to look to find what I need so the...

Does the player character in a game set on a fictional computer have to be a blank slate?

I've played a lot of desktop simulators, like Her Story, Hypnospace Outlaw, and Analogue: A Hate Story. In these games, the player character is a blank slate. They have little characterization and little impact on the plot. The game I'm working on has a player character with a specific backstory. I ...

Re: World Building - Too much or too little? (Fantasy Genre)

Consider making a World Bible. You can keep all of the concepts related to the world there even if they don't get used in the game itself. If you're worried about writing too much unimportant background information, you could try using "cow tools", or bits of information that imply cultural facets w...

Using an ATL Animation multiple times? (Solved)

I have an ATL animation that I would like to reuse with different images. I've defined it at the top of my project (just after the start label) like this: transform anim: zoom 1.0 alpha 0.0 easein_quint 1.5 zoom 1.5 alpha 1.0 pause 0.5 easeout_back 1.5 zoom 0.5 alpha 0.0 What do I put where the ques...

What's the right response to learning someone is playing a pirated version of a game?

I'm subscribed to the Ren'py subreddit. Most of the time, participants are other developers. Sometimes players can show up as well. A couple of days ago, I had an interaction with a player who was having issues with mobile versions of various Ren'py games lagging. I asked which ones, and the player ...

Items in the StoryParts class not going into any lists

I've based this code of this on Saguaro's Basic Message System . I hope to add radio buttons to switch parts. Right now, the parts don't appear in any list. I'm not sure where they are going, or how to debug the system. Any ideas? init python: class StoryPart(store.object): def __init__(self, title,...

This looks really cool! I might have to brush up on my Spanish to play that version. The art looks incredible and spooky.

Improving with vague or non-existent feedback

I've been publishing games for over a year. They're all small, simple projects. A couple are disasters. The rest are okay, but not that good. I want to get better at making games, but I don't have a lot of feedback. The feedback I do have is short and vague. Things like "the art is pretty", "the gam...
