Re: Why so many unfinished VN?

Mostly because I realized how lacking it was in terms of assets (images, sound) and story.

I've refined its UI, however, to be reusable just in case a friend wants his or her VN to be made.

Re: Renpy vs HTML5 & Flash?

If you're torn between Flash, HTML5 and native, you could try learning Haxe, although documentation and resources are sparse, and the community is rather small.

Re: Do you think visual novels are growing or slowly dying?

Growing in caliber, but stagnating in the market. At least, that's how I see it.

Re: Textbutton with State-Dependent Text

After some graphical adjustments, I finally obtained my desired results.

Despite the barbarous length of code required, I guess I'll have to sit with saguaro's solution.

Thanks for your help, gents!

Re: Textbutton with State-Dependent Text

I implemented korova's method, which did what I wanted, except for the text displaying insensitive color all the time. UPDATE: I also tried implementing saguaro's alternate idea, which involved buttons and children, and it did provide a lighter footprint, but went insane with "child Text("Test", etc...

Re: Textbutton with State-Dependent Text

Is there a way to allow strings instead of file locations in imagebuttons, then?

[SOLVED] Textbutton with State-Dependent Text

I plan on creating textbuttons with text that varies between states, something like: Insensitive - [cantclickdis] Selected - [youclickeddis] Standard - [nothinghappened] Is this possible? Did I miss some documentation concerning such? Has this question been asked already? I will try to clarify if re...

I would, but the font/s I need either do not exist, have a price tag, or are not allowed for commercial use.

Re: Ren'Py Gripes

I don't know if this has been addressed, or if this is the wrong place, but I'm (a teeny-tiny bit) upset over Ren'Py not able to use vector formats for images. I can name one reason to use such, and that is the construction of ornamented text. Sure, raster graphics is always a strong option, but it ...

Re: Why does everyone hate imagemaps so much?

Mostly because imagemaps are heavier and more difficult to manage than styling. I can't condemn them, though. Some are more comfortable with using the former, and a few seem to be able to weave them like magic.

Re: Checking for Text Overflow

One thing I noticed while using the Inspection tool was that a block of text had a constant size, even with slow CPS (which I thought made the size a variable). If that were the case, I wonder as to how the scrollable textbox should be programmed to function as intended.

That aside, thanks, Tom!

Re: Checking for Text Overflow

I see. But what if I wanted to obtain the height value (and only the height value)? Side-note: As for the "something involving conditions" I mentioned earlier, it was about a "scroll-able" textbox (just in case an excessively long paragraph is displayed), copied from Asceai: # The one window variant...

[SOLVED] Checking for Text Overflow

Is there a function for checking for text overflow?

No, it's not about using config.debug_text_overflow, it's for something involving conditions.

Re: The VN or The KN?

I'm fine with either. I've yet to see a style-breaker though.
