Re: Declare persistent variables?

I'm not programming expert, but in most languages it's better to properly declare any variable that you're going to use globally.
I believe it matters especially when you use persistent in some True/False check or as a counter.

Re: Show menu animation only if game is starting up

Hmm.... How about "faking" main menu and add animations in the: label splashscreen Something like that should do the trick ;) label splashscreen: scene #your main menu image without animation art show "images/gui/gui_ground.png" show "images/gui/title.png" anchor(1.0, 0.0) pos(777,28) at title_show ...

Re: itch.io changed its ToS

Ehh... People, if you don't understand legal terms, why don't you listen to me - Business Management student(graduate in few months), 3D asset seller since few years - I've dealt with lot's of agreements and legal analysis, so I know what I'm saying and I say once again: it's not like they claim own...

Re: itch.io changed its ToS

@mikolajspy I say one cannot grants rights on something one don't have the copyright for - what are you talking about? :) Copyrights and licensing rights are two different things. Copyright always belongs to the original author, unless he will give them to someone else. License, is the permission t...

Re: Writer, editor, and proofreader for hire! {Paid} [Open]

PenDragon is excellent editor and proofreader. As for writer and creative consultant, I'm about to find out ;) She's quite fast with work, very communicative and reliable. Editing style is rather "mild" - your story will stay as you intended, but she will point out any missing or pointless small par...

Re: itch.io changed its ToS

Also pointed that we can't give such rights to e.g. RenPy or CC-* songs we use in our games. Yes, we can - https://www.renpy.org/doc/html/license.html# With the assets you use in game, you need to check all of them separately, some CC licenses usually allow to use it as long as you pack it in game-...

Re: itch.io silently changed its ToS

For me it's a good change, it's pretty standard sentence in many digital stores (I sell 3D assets on some, it's very similar). It just means, that they officially handle selling part, and are not just a payment/marketing processor/operator. It means a lot for small devs like me. In my country regist...

Re: Adding text strings between quick menu buttons?

I didn't test it, but I think something like this should work:

Code: Select all

hbox:
    textbutton _("back") action Rollback()
    text " | "
    textbutton _("history") action ShowMenu('history')
    # and so on

Re: A bunch of visual novels with mature content on Steam are getting pulled/threatened with removal

Now I'm getting worried, I didn't received anything yet about Jake's Love Story, it has just one, tiny fanservice-y scene, but censored by default. I remember reading an article some time ago, the reason why games like GTA, The Witcher and so on are not taken down is that they're not focused on Adul...

Re: Discouraging Lack of Art Skills

I feel you! I had similar thought when I started playing around VN more than year ago. I decided to do as much as possible on my own, so I just bought sketchbook, set of pencils... and drew! Everyday, few hours/ few pages a day if possible. After about a year I bought myself drawing tablet and went ...

Re: Is my character art good enough? (please critique)

Soooo.... I've been practicing post-process compositing in order to achieve that real anime-like feel in my art. Still a long way to go, but I'm happy with first results. Background is comissioned art from my first game, Jake's Love Story. Any feedback, as always, will be appreciated! TestAnimeComp....

Re: Removing Menu options after use.

Something like this - variables and conditionals. default O1 = False default O2 = False # and so on for other options menu YourLabel: "Let's chat" if O1 == False: $O1 = True character "blah blah blah" jump YourLabel "How are you?" if O2 == False: $O2 = True character "blah, blah" jump YourLabel #Sim...
