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.

Re: Well Met by Moonlight [BxB][Yaoi Jam]

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...

Re: Caffeine: Victoria's Legacy [Fantasy][Anime][Steampunk][Coffee]

Sounds like a really fun and unique setting! Good luck with development! Is there a romance plot, or is it more about friendship and magic coffee?

Re: Because We're Here - Act I [GxB] [War] [History-ish] [Steam] [Commercial]

This looks great! Congratulations on the release. How many acts do you have planned? I tend to prefer to wait for episodic stories to be done before I start them, so I don't end up waiting around in between installments and forgetting what happened in the last one by the time a new one comes out. I'...

Re: Art Asset Alternative?

The biggest issue you might have with using Sims screenshots in your final product is that it might be considered copyright infringement. A lot of companies turn a blind eye to free fan works, and Dating Sims seems to have been around for a while without getting a cease-and-desist notice or anything...

Re: Showing text at a bunch of different positions

Okay, I followed the documentation and now my code looks a bit like this: show text "Blah blah blah." at textposition1 pause show text "Words words words." at textposition2 pause Unfortunately, each time it shows a new line, it seems to automatically hide the previous line, even though I didn't tell...
