Re: Touch Controls on Text Links

Any reason why you can't use a screen for this? At this point, mostly to avoid a ton of extra work? My game is setup like a comic book, with lots of floating word balloons placed in different places on the screen. I'm using the Ren'py camera for placement of images and text directly in engine, so I...

Re: pin point precision and sprite placement

When you're setting your transform properties, add the statement "subpixel True". This changes how Ren'py interprets the value behind xpos and ypos. You may have to adjust the xanchor and yanchor values depending on how you were calculating the positioning (I think ren'py defaults to the top left of...

Touch Controls on Text Links

My game uses a lot of text links within the "show text" label, as opposed to the default "menu" label, mostly because it's easier to move and adjust the text around the screen as an image using a combination of the Ren'py camera add-on and some simple transforms, like this: show text "{a=jump:option...

Re: How crowded is the visual novel market now?

My suggestion is that if you have a good example of a VN: showcase it at a Convention. I know four VN devs including myself who are doing that this year in the US, but that isn't enough. We need to talk to more people about what VNs are to build the fan base. Make that five. In the past few months,...

Re: Tips for Showing Game at Conventions?

There is a GDC talk about this: https://youtu.be/gB8CvsOjDvg I watched this like, six months ago, and I really should have rewatched it a month before the con. I'll take these to heart for next time (throat lozenges would have been a godsend). Just an update on the first con: it went AMAZING. I had...

Also, as an attendee, I think people will be more excited about your game if they feel like they're your awesome play testers than being given the hard sell.
This is probably the attitude I will try to adopt - this feels pretty right.

Tips for Showing Game at Conventions?

I'm starting to hit up the convention circuit with my game demo - I'll showing my game at a local comic convention in a few days, and showing it at a game convention a month from now. I have a demo station setup (both conventions I have close access to electric outlets), and some pin buttons to give...

Re: learning art

No one's responded to this yet, so I'll chime in: Honestly, if it's not something you're interested and/or passionate about, don't even worry about doing it. If saving money is your primary concern, there are plenty of art resources online where you can get access to cheap or free art that is availa...

How to Display Multiple Text?

I've been using the Ren'py camera lot lately, and I realized I could use it to place and move words using "show text" around the screen with ease! I would love to utilize this to place word balloons on the screen in various locations, but whenever I use "show text", I can't use that tag again to dis...
