Re: How (Not) To Make Money As a Solo Dev

Thanks for the article! Our experience was similar... We release simultaneously on Steam and itch.io and slightly later on Google Play. We had way more purchases on Steam, but I like itch.io and it's easy to use so I was happy with releasing both places at once. It is hard to get something the gives...

Re: How many expressions per character?

I like to have about 8 for main characters and 2-3 for side characters (this is in a novel-length VN). The standard expressions I use are: Main characters: angry, annoyed, concerned/worried, determined/serious, flirting, happy, neutral, sad, surprised Sometimes I also use cry, excited, laugh, nervou...

Re: The Madness [Psychological Horror / Puzzle]

Sorry to necro-bump, but I had a dream about this game and am working a blog post on it! The google drive link doesn't seem to work or requires permission. I only have v1.2 but I could zip that up if no one has a newer version that I can link to...?

Re: How to change the font only in the name box?

You're going to look in screens.rpy. The screen that controls how the text box looks is the "say" screen, so scroll down until you find that. You can see that it says "style "namebox"" which means it will use a style called namebox to decide how to show the name. Scrolling down a bit you can see it ...

[SOLVED] Self-Voicing and Screens

I have some visually-impaired users trying to play my game, so I'm trying to improve things for them! One issue is that during self-voicing mode, when there is a screen on top of another screen (often a modal screen), it reads the bottom screen first. I would expect that it would not read the bottom...

Re: App shows as 'not compatible' on Googleplay even though phones are compatible

I had this happen, too... I think the most recent Ren'Py Android build system is not compatible with older devices. :-( This is partly to support a bunch of Android things that Google is now requiring, so I think that in the end it's probably Google's fault...

Re: generate translations, duplicate menu options

I think this is generally considered to be a feature, not a bug -- if you have the same text, why translated it more than once? However, I suppose there are some times when the original language might have the same words but they need to be translated differently. You can use {#tags} in the original...

Re: Showing two languages in-game simultaneously

OK, I was thinking that maybe you could use the function renpy.translate_string , but I tried it in one of my multi-language projects and it didn't seem to work. $ foreign_what = renpy.translate_string(what, language="spanish") I was thinking you could put that in your screens.rpy in the say screen ...

Re: Showing two languages in-game simultaneously

I don't know about showing them simultaneously, but you could add a button to your say screen that lets you switch between languages with the click of a button. Would that help?
