Re: Worst anime you have ever watched?

I haven't watched much anime yet but by far, I think it's Sword Art Online. I just find the romance really cringy and it's NOT... not funny or sad or even anything at all. It's just cringe, and I haven't even mentioned the unrealism of the plot and characters yet. Considering that I am quite a fan o...

Re: Intrepid [Psychological][Fantasy]

Niceeeee The music definitely adds to it! Oh god, the Fate's Prank ending totally got me all depressed ;_; Nicely done! Just a point : Tilda's sprite, her left hand seems to be, 'pressed' into her back with her fingers sticking out, I think if this art detail is done, the other aspects of the game ...

Re: Sprite making help

Like what firecat and Wolf stated, there may be copyright issues so it's best to check if you're allowed to use the images beforehand. I don't think there are many free programs that generate sprites for you and allow you to use them as well (I haven't heard of any, at least) but you can check out t...

Re: Methods to compress image and audio files' size

Here's an example of how extreme the savings can be when choosing the correct file type. The attached PNG file is 10,000 x 10,000 pixels and is 752kb. The equivalent good-quality JPEG with the same dimensions is around 62mb. If I crop it to 1,000 x 1,000 pixels the JPEG still produces a larger file...

Re: female mc persona questions

In my opinion, female MCs arrive at unlikable territory when their actions become unbelievable and unrelatable. Traits don't really affect anything for me as long as they are developed and there are reasons behind these traits. Like YonYonYon, I don't like innocent MCs (not necessarily the trait its...

Re: Methods to compress image and audio files' size

I don't know if you wanted feedback/suggestions, but here are my thoughts: Is it fair to call GIF Lossless? Unless they've made some major changes I wasn't aware of, GIF can only handle up to 256 colours, so it is certainly NOT going to save the sort of art we see in most modern VNs without destroy...

Re: Methods to compress image and audio files' size

I currently see absolutely zero reason for people to use anything but OGG for the audio files in their game. The different in quality is, at least to me, indiscernible, and the file size reductions are immense. In terms of image files, I've lately been finding that PNG nets me the lower file size f...

Re: Methods to compress image and audio files' size

Saving an image as a PNG only makes sense under three circumstances: The image contains large amounts of pixels that are the same colour and they're contiguous. Contiguous pixels just means they're touching one another. If you were to take a screenshot of this webpage saving it as PNG would result ...

Methods to compress image and audio files' size

Since some people may be concerned that the file size of their game is too huge, here are some methods that may help in the compression of image and audio files' size. (Note: Most of these methods can be pretty time consuming, especially for the one concerning Audacity because only one file can be d...

Re: Kiss and Tell [Romance][School Life][GxB][Otome]

1. Is my sprite drawing style okay for a VN? Of course! I think the drawing style is really adorable. 2. Do you find the school theme too generic? I don't really mind stories centered around school if they are executed well enough. I like the fact that the main character grows in this story, and I d...

Re: Intrepid [Supernatural][Fantasy]

Okay, so here's just a few updates! As most of you may have seen, the new Tilda sprite has been updated. This is most likely the finalised version but I may add a little more shading since it turned out less obvious than I expected. http://orig12.deviantart.net/001a/f/2015/250/5/e/bg_by_genn_esis-d9...
