Re: Sacred Fire [RPG, historic fiction, romance, mystery, war]

No problem, I just wanted to check so that I didn't accidentally lead someone to expect something and be disappointed by it.

Re: Sacred Fire [RPG, historic fiction, romance, mystery, war]

Heh, I somehow didn't realise there was a thread for this here. Well, since I was following it on steam to check on it later for my curator, I may as well ask here - are all the romance options straight-only or are there any lesbian possibilities? (I'm still interested in the game anyway but it can ...

Re: I made a routes analyser - visualise your project with a graph!

Sounds like a neat idea - I don't know if it'll actually work on my spaghetti or not yet but I'm posting here partly to remind myself to examine more later :)

Re: A Warmer Shade of Summer [Full Game Free][Steam][Farming][Romance]

(As I said in your other thread, none ofyour images are working for me. And who's the protagonist?)

Re: A Warmer Shade of Summer [Free][Full Game][Steam][Farming][Romance]

None of your images are displaying here, I'm just getting big minus signs.

Since this is a romance game, who's the protagonist? Male? Female? Player choice?

Re: Tips for keeping track of large projects/highly branching games?

I personally don't put sprite names in the code until the sprites actually exist. If I'm writing script before I have art I won't specify sprites and I'll go back and do them later. After some writing exists I have enough idea of a character's personality that I can commission sprites with what I th...

Re: Tips for keeping track of large projects/highly branching games?

Vague tips: If the branching is getting out of control, consider how much those branches actually add to the experience. While some people (like me) love a lot of choice, many players find it stressful and that it makes it more difficult to get the outcomes they want. Reconnect frequently. The more ...

Re: Using multiple types of "Say" windows?

You can define characters to use custom say screens. Just for a random example grabbed from code I'm using define vamp = Character("name",dynamic=True, window_style = "left_talker", what_style="talkbox_dialogue") define lowvamp = Character("name",dynamic=True, window_style = "low_center_talker", wha...

Re: Is it wrong to use public domain pictures in NSFW scenes?

There are sites that let you put slightly more restrictions on free works (no porn, no racism, no animal abuse are common ones I've seen). If someone deliberately chooses to put up free content with no restrictions, that means no restrictions. Did you look at the licensing FAQ for the site? Pexel's ...

Re: Credit Sequence with One Team Member

If you really did everything you could just end with "<Title> A game by <name>" and have that be the credits.

Or you could get carried away thanking all your pets and favorite plants :D

Re: About copyright

You own the characters. Hiring an artist to draw them does not mean that they suddenly own those characters. It is still a good idea to have contracts spelling out that you own the IP and that they are creating work-for-hire for you. If you hire an artist to paint your character and send you the dig...

Re: The Lost Delinqunets of Rollings High, early WIP [DEMO]

Those little character designs you've put up top are nice, lots of energy and emotion. Personally it's hard to get motivated to check out WIP demos though especially when there's very little information available to tell me why your story is exciting and so much is (apparently) rapidly changing at t...

Re: Gender and personality of the protagonist bias

While I don't mind reading opposite-gender protagonists, I should say it's not really the same thing being a distant viewer watching your avatar run around doing things and being in the head of the character reading their first-person-perspective. (Which often ends up being much more the AUTHOR'S he...
