Re: Dating Sim Engine (DSE) 4.0! Day Planner and Event Manager

Hey, I haven't done a new release yet, but you can download the latest changes here:
https://github.com/renpy/dse/archive/master.zip

That should solve your problem!

Re: Dating Sim Engine (DSE) 4.0! Day Planner and Event Manager

Thanks for finding that! I'd be happy to help you make changes in git, or if you want to just post them here or send them to me, that would work, too.

Re: OPS2: Space to Grow [Sci-fi][Farming Sim][Raising Sim]

I updated all the progress meters; the beta is almost finished (still waiting on some more sprites and blocking). We want to do a lot of testing and QA and add more CGs, maybe achievements, so it will probably not be ready until early 2020. Thanks for your patience! Just like raising kids, making ga...

That sounds cool! I can see how some people would like for that to be an option. Could you zip it up and post a link?

Can you post some details about the crash? And/or post your code? It's easier to debug if we can download the whole thing and run it ourselves...

Re: Creating modifiable game worth it?

Sounds interesting! I'm curious to see where you take this. A database might be overkill but could be worth it if it makes things easier to manage. Honestly, editing well-organized .rpy files is not too difficult, though, so you could also just put all the user-editable things in one .rpy file that ...

Three Cheers for PyTom!

I just wanted to give a quick THANK YOU to PyTom for his long-term, quality, responsive work on Ren'Py. Not only is it what enables all of us to make our games, but he continues to add new features, gives support, and is even nice about it! And he does it all for free! (Though, you can always be a P...

Re: Benefits of Visual Novels?

I wrote a novel a few years ago and, while it was fun, I didn't really enjoy writing most of the prose! I love dialogue, which is where visual novels shine. It's also much easier to get an audience as an indie game maker than an indie writer. You actually need way less graphics assets for a visual n...

Re: Renpy generated keys or Google Play generated keys?

Best practice is to have a unique key for yourself, use it for all your games and keep it secure and consistent! That's hard to do after the fact, though... If you don't keep your keys around, you cannot update your games on Google Play - you have to post a new one each time, which looks like spammi...

Re: Otome stereotypes

Hey, having written an otome parody (WANTED: Dragon), I think this sounds fun! We wanted to parody the sweet, quiet, pushover protagonist of a lot of otome games and therefore went with a commandeering, morally-questionable protagonist. But there's lots of other places you could go with this. You me...

Re: Creating modifiable game worth it?

This would be a lot of extra work. While I think a lot of players like the option to choose what their character looks like, most players don't have artistic/technical ability/desire to do so. One option is to release your game open source (ie, don't archive everything up into one big file). This wa...
