Re: Do you doubt your writing?

Doubt is a good sign. Doubt means you aren't Tommy Wiseau. You think him or Uwe Boll or M. Night Shyamalan or any of the other hacks out there ever asked themselves "is this good?" I mean I guess The Room is its own kind of strange masterpiece, but imagine the kind of ignorance and complete confiden...

Re: Developer Blogs?

I'm a total noob at this, it's my first game and I'm just starting to try to build interest, but I started a blog for Iron Company last month and I just sort of scream into the void whenever I feel the need. I like having a record of my progress because it keeps me from despairing when I feel like I...

Re: Iron Company [Post-Apocalypse/Adventure/Friendship!]

BAMP!!! Just updated the heck out of the OP. It's been like 8 months since I touched it, jeez! My arm's gotten a lot better and I'm starting to recover my drawing ability as of a few months ago. Even if it's just a line or two, I work on Iron Company every day. It has a blog now.

Yes, and I only want to use side images. Is that what's causing the problem?

Lint "Could not find image" error [SOLVED]

So when I check my script with Lint, I get this error: "game/scriptch1.rpy:30 Could not find image (image_filename.png imagename) corresponding to attributes on say statement." This goes on for hundreds and hundreds of lines, random ones, out of every chapter. My game works perfectly fine, and the i...

Re: Conditional statement not working right

While what you have does work, why are you using the strings "True"/"False" rather than the boolean values True/False? D'oh. That's just me spacing out. The reason your loop doesn't work is that you wrote $ things_remaining =- 1 (wrong) instead of $ things_remaining -= 1 (right) GAAAAH THIS WAS IT!...

Re: Default text speed problem with my game tester

Oh, I used the launcher to delete persistent files on my end. Then I built her a windows distribution and sent that to her-- probably should have mentioned that, oops! She doesn't have Ren'py, just my game, so there's no launcher for her to use. She's on Windows 8 and has a Ren'py folder in AppData ...

Default text speed problem with my game tester

So, I changed the default text speed for my game from 0 to 35. It works fine for me when I test it. My friend, who had already tested some previous versions of the game for me, started up the new version I sent her and found that the game still ran as if the text speed were set to 0 (instant). On th...

Re: How do you guys make good/interesting characters?

I have a lot of people tell me (and I read a lot of places that say this, too) to think of your characters as tools for your plot. To not get emotionally involved in them because the point of the story is to essentially torture them with conflict. I hate this. I get that it works for some people--a...

Re: Best Tear Jerker Music Pieces

I recently watched The Tale Of Princess Kaguya. The music of the Celestial Beings ( Part I, Part II ) definitely brings tears now. It's so pretty and joyful, but in the movie it essentially represents the "death" of a beloved character. I can't find the track anywhere on youtube, but there's also a ...

Re: How do you guys make good/interesting characters?

I developed a lot of the characters for the comic-and-possible-VN script I'm writing through roleplay (MSN messenger... those were the days). Of course, that requires another person to participate, and it's quite a time sink. But it seriously does help. Bouncing your character off another person for...
