Re: Bara Boarders [BxB, Bara, Bara Jam, Light, Short, WIP]

The art style for this looks so unique and fun! I think I would probably go for Cliff first because I'm not very athletic myself, so I think I'd relate most to the least competent surfer. He also looks really cute! To sort of answer your second question, I have mixed feelings about the phone number ...

Re: making an image map with an overlay

I believe that you can use if/else statements when you're defining your hotspots, so you could have something like this: if found_letter == False: hotspot (971, 574, 63, 54) clicked Jump("agnesletter") That way that hotspot only exists if you haven't found the letter yet. Then when you call the scre...

Re: Do the backgrounds seriously need a crowd of people in it?

I agree with what other people have been saying so far - while having a crowd in the background might be a nice touch, especially if the characters talk about the location being busy or something, it isn't at all necessary. I don't expect visual novels to show me exactly what's happening in the scen...

Re: Looking for critique: Triple Treat (Visual Novel) - [NSFW / 18+] [Fetish] [Kink] [GxG]

I just checked out the tumblr post you linked to and I'm definitely interested now that I see it's "targeted at a lesbian & bisexual female audience"! I'd love to know a little more detail about what you have planned, like what the characters' personalities are like and what roles they would be play...

Re: Adding new game modes after first completion

I wonder if there is some kind of persistent variable which is saved somewhere outside of the 'walls' of the game itself and can be referenced literally anywhere, including in the menu / config etc. There is! Here's the documentation on persistent variables. Just set one of those to true at the end...

Re: Question About "add FileScreenshot"

config.thumbnail_height/width are just config variables. https://www.renpy.org/doc/html/config.html#var-config.thumbnail_height They're probably set somewhere in the files you have (ctrl+f is your friend); just change them. Oh hey, I found them and got it working! Thanks for pointing that out - I g...

Re: Question About "add FileScreenshot"

I took a look at the gui code and I think it used the old "legacy gui" which is no longer recommended as a base(...i think). You could strip the assets and put them into a new project, or try to find how to modify screenshot size though i've taken a look at the code and have no idea where or how. s...

Re: Question About "add FileScreenshot"

You're looking in the wrong place. Open gui.rpy and find the section dealing with thumbnails. Adjust the ones for save slots. Thanks for your help. Unfortunately, I don't actually have a gui.rpy file in this project. I'm using a premade GUI that I guess is older and/or programmed differently (CC GU...

Preferences Screen Not Affecting the Volume of Custom Channels

I created two custom music channels for my project so that I could have one song fade out while another one is already starting and things like that. I defined them like this: init python: renpy.music.register_channel("music1", loop=True) renpy.music.register_channel("music2", loop=True) They work f...

Re: Can I make just one "hotspot" to do it?

If you want to have the TV sound and background music playing at once, and to be able to stop one but not the other, you just need to make sure they're on different channels. The easiest way to do that would be to have the background music on the "music" channel and the TV sound on the "sound" chann...

Question About "add FileScreenshot"

I'm wondering about my options for modifying the way RenPy shows a small screenshot of the point where you saved on the save/load menu. The GUI I'm using right now isn't really the ideal size I guess - when I look at the save/load menu it looks like the screenshots are a little squished. Here's what...

Is it possible to show other images on top of an imagemap?

In my current project, I want some separate images to show up on top of an imagemap. (The reason I don't just save the whole background with those images included is that your actions during the point-and-click section with the imagemap can eventually make them disappear.) However, I can't figure ou...

Re: Question about crowdfunding

Hi Red! I'm not sure about the question of whether they'd be considered commercial, but I've seen other VNs get successfully funded while planning to release the final product for free. Lake of Voices is a recent (and really good) one, and I know I've seen a few others as well. So while it might be ...
