Re: Trying to create a "chat" system in game menu

To add on to namastaii's reply, the example here does some nifty things using an array to hold the text and display them. https://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewtopic.php?f=51&t=19295 I wasn't too sure about what you intended as the messaging went on though.

Re: Real SMS or mail features in a VN

I think it would be interesting to have the feature; just pertaining to within the game though. It would feel a bit too 'encroaching' if it was sent directly to my own mail account. Honestly just switching out the current point of view(mc --> whoever else/Person B) should be enough to add dramatic i...

Re: [FREE] Anime CG Artist!

What concerns me is that you yourself state that there should be differences between the original and yours due to a side by side comparison drawing technique for the Nisekoi picture. This begs the question, why aren't there any? Sure there is admittedly a bit of hair that is colored in. But when yo...

Re: [FREE] Anime CG Artist!

The red is a lineart trace of the op's "fanart" resized and overlayed on the original art piece that was "redrawn".

Or if it needs to be more clearly shown, a side by side comparison. Left is original, right is fanart.

Re: Writing better dialogue?

Wrote up a short random sample here then: https://recastdev.wordpress.com/2016/09/06/prompt-3-childhood-memorandum/ As for the inflection, I guess it would be more accurate to say current thoughts? I've mostly only written in first person, so lot of the times I end up with long thought processes wit...

Writing better dialogue?

When I have a friend read any of the concept ideas for a story I might want to write, they usually concur that there's an interesting premise and plot, and that the setting is well established. But when I get down to creating the dialogue, it always seems like the conversations feel very much forced...

Writer/ Editor looking for projects

Looking for experience in writing for projects, my main focus is fantasy, but I'm willing to pick up any genre if the story interests me. I tend to check lemma quite a bit, so just send me a pm or post here in thread and I'll get back to you as soon as possible. Writing samples on wordpress. There's...

Re: In Game Politics?

If you yourself are interested in seeing it happen, then no doubt there are readers who would like it too. I love to do in-depth research into things that I'm writing about(recently particularly interested in old damascan ore refinery vs Japanese sword folding) and there's people who love to learn a...

Updated the first chapter, haven't gotten to editing the others so itll make little sense if you read them. https://recastdev.wordpress.com/2016/07/31/the-princess-is-bored/ Hopefully I've cleaned up the pure exposition bits, but if I haven't or even possibly made it worse, please tell me.

Writing critique

I've recently started up a webnovel(maybe?) which details the life of a princess forced into a game in the demon world. I would honestly like some critique on the writing thus far, since I feel like parts of it are awkward at the moment, but I can't pinpoint where. site link here https://recastdev.w...

Re: Creative writing class.. worth it?

I like to just sit myself down to a light novel and read through it. Maybe put on some light music while I'm flipping through the pages. It depends on the novel, but they usually tend to always be in a first person view and be dialogue heavy, which is how most VN I've encountered are structured on. ...

Re: Character Select Menu, Branching Paths, and Multiple End

Have you tried looking through the tutorial code? That's where I got most of the knowledge for making things from. As for making the imagemap, it just takes in image files, so I guess your only concern is the quality of the picture(file types png or jpg) Here's the documentation for imagemaps. A not...
