Re: A list of all paid/free/partly paid VN engines I can find.

I would add WebStory Engine to the list. It may be officially discontinued, but it's still available and open source, very easy to set up and use. Certainly seems much nicer than Monogatari, and surprisingly powerful for how it's made to be used.

Re: Good programs for organizing a strongly non-linear narrative?

This may sound like heresy in the Ren'Py forum, but maybe Twine? It's great for revealing non-linear structures like that. And there's precedent in using it as e.g. a dialog editor for other kinds of games.

Re: Resolution for VNs?

Yeah, I saw the full screen, but because I don't now much about programs, I guess I assumed all the games that stretched to fit my full screen where the full size. Silly I know, but while I know a lot about art programs, I've never really thought much about programs in general until now. This is a ...

Re: Resolution for VNs?

Heh, just adding so you know, I'm new to making VNs, it's not that I think bigger sizes are better because of the crispness, it's because I thought that was the only way to have a game full screen on my computer. xD So I'm guessing I'm wrong to assume this? In the preferences dialog of a Ren'Py gam...

Re: How do you find motivation

Pick a subject matter you care about. Don't just set out to make whatever. That works for small one-off projects; with a visual novel, you're usually in for the long haul. So make sure you really, really want to see it finished. Edit: Elta is also right. The difference between motivation and discipl...

Re: Resolution for VNs?

Please consider people with 15-inch business laptops when choosing your resolution. An 1152x720 window (to keep the aspect ratio at 16:10) will fit just fine on a screen of 1280x800, or the more common 1366x768. And there are still netbooks floating around that can only do 1024x600, or for that matt...

Re: What forums do you visit?

I lurk on the IntFiction.org forums, though I never had an account there for technical reasons before, and now I'm too out of it to bother joining (I do have one on textadventures.co.uk). And of course the Itch.io community forums. Also the Open Game Art forums, occasionally. A couple of other place...

Re: Is Lemmesoft Dying

Conventional wisdom says that forums are dying out as a general rule, not least due to increased competition from other forms of social media. And it's definitely true for some forums. But I see this kind of complaint even in places that are quite busy, like right here. Am lurking every day, you kno...

One thing that's going on is a forum topic drift. This was originally a Ren'Ai game-making forum, but we're sorta expanding. I'm not sure if I like that or not... I like the character work in Ren'Ai games. I wonder how many nanoreno games won't be Ren'Ai games. Well, how many Ren'Py-based works hav...

Without the objects-of-desire element, we have adventure games like Monkey Island or Myst, along with mystery visual novels like Phoenix Wright. Both of these classes of games aren't really discussed here. So if I use Ren'Py to make, say, a science-fiction story, will it be a visual novel or not? A...

Free avatar hosting whitout the overkill?

Hello, This is a very minor issue, but it's still nagging me. I'd like to have an avatar on the forum, but registering for a free photo hosting account just for that is definitely overkill. I can't use my free website account either, because they don't allow hotlinking (of course). Is there any othe...
