Re: Mordred [Short KN, gothic suspense, commercial]

This sounds really interesting! Will you be releasing it for PC as well? I might just be intrigued enough to get the mobile version, but I prefer reading on my laptop.

Re: Random Question-World interacting otome

It could definitely be a cool addition to the game if it's well-integrated in the story. For instance, if you already plan to give the player a choice between going to different locations or hanging out with different characters, doing it through map movement could make it a little more immersive. E...

Re: Can I play these two different transitions at the same time?

Thanks for the help everyone! Kivik's suggestion to turn it into an animation works, but I'll also try Qlara's version. Edit: I've tried Qlara's version and it seems like it works! For whatever reason, defining the sun moving transtion the way she did will work at the same time as the background tra...

Re: Can I play these two different transitions at the same time?

I get the same result as you, and I think it makes sense since you're doing one transition on the image and the other on the scene. I had a look on Google and Imperf3kt made a suggestion of turning the moving image into an animation: https://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewtopic.php?t=41820 Let us kn...

Re: Can I play these two different transitions at the same time?

Are you using the latest Ren'Py version? I just tried it (and several variations) and the transitions do in fact happen at the same time. Thanks for replying. I tried updating just now and I'm still having the same problem though. I wonder if there's something somewhere else in my code that's messi...

Can I play these two different transitions at the same time?

I'd like to have an effect in my game that shows the sun setting. I have one background for the sky during sunset, and another background for nighttime. So I thought the easiest thing to do might be to dissolve from the sunset background to the night background, while an image of the sun moves from ...

Re: The Waters Above [GxG] [Drama] [Fantasy]

Oh I'm really excited for this one! I remember coming across the Studio Élan website before, and the concept of a yuri VN that's about issues in a long-term relationship and also magic really caught my attention. I think I like the look and sound of Iris the most. How old are the characters? Some of...

Re: GUI Layout critique/advice?

Looks nice! I think making that "quirks" screen collapsible is a good idea. It doesn't seem like something that you'd need to be checking constantly, and that way the screen is more symmetrical when the characters without side portraits are talking. Maybe you could put a quirks button at the top of ...

Re: Everything matters?

Does Life is Strange actually let you influence the story with every decision? My impression of it was that it actually had a pretty linear plot, but a lot of little variations along the way made the player feel like they could change anything they wanted. I think that's the way it works with a lot ...

Re: Delusion Gallery [Horror][NaNo 2018]

Sounds interesting! I'm curious about every playthrough being different - does that just mean that different choices lead in wildly different directions, or are there also things changing outside of the player's control?

Re: Paper Shakespeare: To Date or Not To Date? [Commercial][Dating][Steam]

Sounds fun! I usually enjoy comedic Shakespeare adaptations. I'd love a little more information about which Shakespeare characters are involved, and how much of the story is actually based on the source material.

Re: how to block things(screenshots, rollbacks, and skips)

Why do you want to block all those things? I can kind of understand that you want people to read the story the way you intended it instead of skipping anything, but you can't guarantee that that will happen even if you disable the skip function. I'm not sure very many people even skip through things...

Re: Harry Potter and the Mysterious Thief part I [BxB] [+18]

The art for this looks really nice! Since you're focusing on Harry & co. as adults, will you be taking any inspiration from The Cursed Child? As polarizing as that play seems to have been for Harry Potter fans, I really liked what it did with Draco's character development and relationship with Harry.

Unless you have a mod that lets you modify their emotions and poses easily Oh, I do. I have so many mods.

Re: Do you prefer choosing a character's/ending's route early on or letting your choices influence the end result?

My personal preference is having several choices throughout a common route that determine which route you get afterward, but not too many. That way it's not super obvious, but it's also not so complex that I'd need to follow a guide rather than experimenting. And you can also spend some time just ge...
