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 ...

Re: Starlight and The Lost Prince [Animated VN/Point-and-click] [GxB] [Romance/Sci-fi]

This looks so cute! I love the art style so far, and I'm really interested to see how the animations turn out. For some more general music suggestions, this thread that lists and translates a bunch of Japanese creative commons music sites has been really helpful to me, and there are plenty of other ...

Our demihumans are so very excited to meet you~~ (mostly)
Probably all of them except Geist, who hasn't been excited about anything for decades.

I had a lot of fun writing my part of the demo, so I hope everyone enjoys it. :D

Re: I'm starting a VN alone: How should I go about this?

What might be helpful is writing your first draft of the story without worrying about whether the dialogue is natural or not. If you want a character to explain a certain facet of the world or backstory, just write them saying that directly - it's a draft anyway. Then when you have a full draft, you...

Re: Lake of Voices [Free][Horror, Tragedy, Dark Fantasy][GxB/G]

I just finished reading this one and I really enjoyed it! It has such a spooky and unique concept. My favourite character was definitely The Guide - he was so grumpy and mysterious. Who did the art for it? It all looked great, especially all the dark, foggy backgrounds.

Re: Different route after a game crash or ending a route?

I'm not entirely sure if I interpreted what you're saying correctly, but it sounds to me like you just need a persistent variable and an if/else statement. For instance, let's say that once you've done some character named Mary's route, that unlocks some character named Alice's route, and there's al...

Re: Problem Editing Imagemap Quick Menu

If I don't remember this completely wrong, the hotspots x and y positions are counted from the imagemap's (0,0)-point (top-left corner). I would suspect that when you changed the ground image for the imagemap, and changed the map's position, you got the positions of the hotspots wrong. Wow, I can't...

Problem Editing Imagemap Quick Menu

I'm using a premade creative commons GUI ( CC GUI 1 by Namastaii ) in my project, but I wanted to make some changes to it. Specifically, my issue came when I tried to add buttons for skip, log, and quit to the quick menu. I made new ground and hover images that resembled the old ones but with the ne...

Re: Is Renpy better than Visual Novel Maker?

I haven't used Visual Novel Maker, but I had a similar experience when I used TyranoBuilder. The drag and drop system was nice and easy for just basic stuff like sprites and dialogue, but when I started wanting to get a bit more complicated, I realized it was probably more work with less general app...

Re: Mizuchi 白蛇心傳 [GxG][Fantasy Romance][VN] - Demo Pending

Ooh, this sounds like a cool setting! I'm always excited to see VNs that stray outside the typical setting of either Japan or the US, and what little I've heard of Chinese mythology is really interesting. Good luck - I'll check out the kickstarter once it's up. :)

Re: Bringing Characters Back to Life

I haven't gotten around to watching Buffy yet, but that sounds to me like they did a good job of it. I think that if you're going to bring a character back from the dead, it should definitely be a struggle for the character. Maybe they don't come back as exactly the same person they were before, eit...

Re: Sound not stopping

The easiest way to do it is to replace "play music" with "play sound". Calling it music means it loops by default, and calling it sound means it doesn't by default. Also, for future reference, I think this should be in the Renpy Questions & Announcements section.

This was a super sweet VN! ^_^ . . . Thanks Zelan! I'm really glad you liked it. My artist definitely did a great job - it was his idea to do the lighting variations and I think it really ended up adding a lot! He also worked on another game for yaoi jam that I helped edit, Strawberry Daiquiri , so...
