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

Yeah, it's not an extra underscore; there's supposed to be two of them.

If you can zip up your project files and PM me a link or something, I can take a look at it. :-)

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

Huh, I haven't seen that error before. Do you still have this statement on line 9 of dse-stats.rpy?

Code: Select all

    __dse_stats = [ ]

Re: I cannot create a game!!!

It could also be a problem with your working directory when running Ren'Py? I also use linux and haven't had problems with the new GUI system, but before I changed my working directory to be the Ren'Py directory, I would sometimes get errors about files not being found.

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

I just posted a new version of the DSE that uses the new GUI. I also renamed the files so it was obvious which ones you need and which ones you don't. Please try it out and let me know if you encounter any problems! Because of this renaming, you may need to remove all the old .rpyc files or you may ...

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

TheChatotMaestro, can you post the code you are using? In the sample code in dse-events.rpy, the "Cut Class" event uses this and it seems to be pretty random to me. Maybe taking a look at how it is used in there will give you some direction on how to use it in your game.

Re: Including Google Play API Client for Python in android build

Has anyone figured this out? I see that there is an Achievements module in Ren'Py, but is this just for Steam?

Re: Jump scares in a game that isn't an horror game

Before including something like a jump scare, consider what you want the reader to feel. People play a horror game because they want to feel dread and feel startled and be horrified. People play spy games because they want to feel tension and suspense. People play romance games because they want to ...

Re: Preventing game from becoming 18+

Here is a link to the ones Google uses: https://support.google.com/googleplay/a ... 8189?hl=en

Basically, you fill out a quiz and they tell you what the rating is.

What you've described so far sounds like a T or M game to me, though. :-)

yung, yes, event.happened is just the thing to use! Thanks for posting that here in case someone else has the same problem. :-) SgurrDearg, I think I know what you mean. It's a bit complicated, like you said. If you want, you can take a look at some code I have for an in-progress game that kind of d...

Re: Dating Sim Engine (DSE) 3.12! Day Planner and Event Mana

Hey, sorry for the delay, I was out of town. I need to make some changes to the DSE in order to work with the new(ish) way of doing the GUI. You should still be able to download the DSE, put it in the folder where Ren'Py looks for games, and run it, as well as edit it to suit your needs (but it will...

Re: Dating Sim Engine (DSE) 3.12! Day Planner and Event Mana

Hmmm, I see what you're saying. You don't have to use the day planner, but could have some other kind of event loop where you call events_run_period every time the player enters a screen or something (instead of whenever they select from the day_planner). That part is in main.rpy. Does that make sen...

Re: Ciel Fledge [Raising Sim] [Sci-Fi]

Yeah, that sounds great! I like how you can choose who you are.

The raising sim I'm working on is Our Personal Space 2: Space to Grow. The first game was a marriage sim, and this is the sequel: a parenting sim set on a new planet.

Re: Our Personal Space 2 [Sci-fi][Farming Sim][Parenting Sim

Status update: We have made progress! Things will probably slow down for me this summer as I now have 3 kids at home. But the game is coming along! TEXT: 15%, 12,825 words so far! We have outlines for all 30 of the community and family events, and lots of different farming events depending on the pl...

Re: Ciel Fledge [Raising Sim] [Sci-Fi]

Oh, this looks fabulous! I'm intrigued by your worldbuilding and the opportunities for Ciel. 1. Personally, I enjoy VNs much more when there is more gameplay besides "choose the right conversation option once in a while". 2. I'm not sure exactly what you mean by "mature themes". Personally, I would ...

Re: Dating Sim Engine (DSE) 3.12! Day Planner and Event Mana

OK, that looks like the proper way to do it. It doesn't work with the old code, though, so I will only include it once the rest of the code is updated to work better with the new stuff.
