Re: GUI Feedback please

To Imperfekt: I think I actually read about that, they called it the difference between "True Black", "Print Black" and "Rich Black"? Like, #000000 is Rich Black I think and there are two other blacks (True Black which actually reads as pitch black by CMYK printers and Print Black which is printer-f...

GUI Feedback please

So UI design is kind of my weakness and while I feel I am getting somewhere, I believe I am not yet where I want to. And since some people here have amazing designs, I'd like some feedback on what I got and would appreciate any input. (Note: Font and color are NOT up for debate. It has to be black&w...

Re: Change name position INSIDE namebox?

Ah, I didn't consider that I could center with align and THEN move with pos. See, I assumed it is a simple answer for a stupid problem xD" Thanks, I had to play a bit to move it back in position, but it looks good now! Thanks Jackkel! And Isobelle, while not necessary now, it's actually good advice,...

Options reveal route direction?

I don't really know how to start this question, so I am just gonna be direct with an example: https://i.imgur.com/IWzcsmN.png I backed The Office Type when it first started it's kickstarter and have been thinking about this feature of theirs a lot. Since my own game also features a love-friend-aquai...

Re: Coming up with sprite poses?

One good source to find a nice pose that a character might be in for long are "Live Drawing" videos. Especially if they cover time spans of 10-30 minutes since the model will be in a pose that he/she can actually hold for that long (and thus will probably a relaxed and comfortable one in contrast to...

Re: Games with mixed art

It depends on how it is mixed and what is mixed, I'd say? I mean, the movie "Le Tableau" does this on purpose as does "The Prophet", but both are cohersive in their own. Whenever I work with others and there are multiple artists, we divide the work in a way that it isn't obvious that we have differe...

Re: Should I start commissioning or learning how to draw?

Well, depending on how fast you need the images for your VN, why not do both? I assume, that VN will not be your last, so the skill will be useful anyway. If it is about learning how to draw, consider trying out the "Sketch 356" challenge. You literally make one image a day for a year. Can be a sket...

Re: What are legit pose references?

May I say that I am highly confused about you thinking that retracing is bad? Because I very much disagree! Disney's Snow White was retraced (which - in animation - is called rotoscoping), just as one example. There is NOTHING bad about retracing. I would instead argue about references like this: If...

Fur 'n Feathers [Fantasy/History, Romance?,Drama]

This is mostly a setting idea, not really a story (or rather, the story that came to my mind first was dripping with so many clichés that I'd be embarassed to even say them...) based on a dream I had yesterday, so nothing really thought out, nothing specific. But hey, stuff in the Ideas thread is t...

Re: Writing someone else's story

Just to clarify, that example was literally a "Spend 5 seconds to think of an example"-thing xD I know how to properly pitch a idea and I would probably use something in hiring that I could just as well put down in the Project or Idea Threads. PLUS, I am not trying to scout out anyone right now, so ...

Writing someone else's story

This is mostly a discussion thought I had. Since I actually study Games (as an artist), I had plenty of cases like this, but wondered about it in a wider spectrum such as here where strangers band together. In my study course, there are designers, artists and programmers. And usually at the end of t...

Re: Check if Player saved

Oh, I see! I'll try and see, if I can do that, thanks! EDIT: So I looked into it (and other JSON code threads here), but while I can change the save file, I can't manipulate it exactly in the way I want (I assume, I am placing stuff at the wrong places or so). To run a test, I put this into init bas...

Check if Player saved [[SOLVED]]

Hello community, I have a possibly weird question: Is it possible to check, if the player has saved? Preferably if the player saved recently (like, in the last 5 minutes / since variable X was activated)? I would like to make a meta-game where the game asks you to save someone BY SAVING THE GAME. Bu...
