Re: "Linear" auto save/load functionality

That doesn't seem to quite work. Even if I set frequency to 1, sometimes when I make progress then close the program, when I restart, it for some reason goes back to an old save.

"Linear" auto save/load functionality

I'm wondering if it is possible to replace RenPy's default saving/loading behavior with an autosave that only keeps track of one state and, upon restarting the game, automatically loads the save file. In other words, when starting a new game, it starts from the beginning like normal. While the playe...

Re: Drawing Sprites by Hand?

I'll have to consider all that. Here's a demo 3d-to-2d image:

Re: Drawing Sprites by Hand?

and while I'm asking about sprite advice, would you be able to take a game with sprite graphics that were kinda cartoony(unrealistic, caricature type stuff) at all semi-seriously?

Re: Drawing Sprites by Hand?

The Parasol Festival is a good example of a visual novel with traditional art. The artist (Deji) has a screenshot on her tumblr with a method similar to what you're talking about. With watercolors to boot! Thanks! I'll keep in mind doing something like that(probably not watercolor though) as a poss...

Re: Drawing Sprites by Hand?

Intuos Wacom 5 tablet. Even if it were a manga style sort of thing, how would I swap the mouth, as you're suggesting, without drawing a whole new image?

Drawing Sprites by Hand?

I'm wondering if there's any feasible way to draw sprites by hand(on physical media, then scanning or other similar process) rather than digitally? The main problem I see emerging is making many sprites for each characters with varying expressions, i.e. how could I make the same image but with diffe...

How to make a game for android

Hey, sorry for the noobish question. If I'm making a game in Ren'py that I plan to release for Android devices, do I have to manually set things like screen size, or will the program/app do things like that for me? For example, if I take a game I made that runs on PC(let's say 1280/720 pixels window...

Return value returned from screen when pressing textbutton

I'm having a little trouble... I have two screens, and I want one screen, upon pressing a textbutton, to return the value returned by another screen, but I can't figure out how to do this. Pseudocode is as follows: show first-screen if(button is pushed): show second-screen return second-screen's ret...

Opinions on using 3dCG for sprite creation?

I'm considering writing up a VN, and I'm wondering what you think of possibly using 3d Custom Girl for making the sprites. Do you think that's feasible, or will look any good? I've tried a few asset-builders, but those are usually fairly limited in what they offer. I can draw a little bit, but not i...
