Re: Benefits of Visual Novels?

I've been trying to make games for years, 3D ones (RPGs, story-driven shooters etc.), but all those game were very hard to make. I never was a fan of RPG-Maker clones or pixel art games, I think the market is oversaturated with them and they all look the same. Then I found Visual Novels! For me, ben...

Re: How to keep artists committed?

This is problem that exists in every field when comes to hiring someone. Either they dissapear, the work doesn't match portfolio and so on. But it also can happen with "professional" freelancer too. That's why I decided to learn drawing and created sprites on my own. To the subject - As others menti...

Re: Remembering conditional branches even after the game ends?

Looks like it should work. Note: After checking if it's alright, to play game again, in Launcher click "Delete persistent", otherwise variable stays True or value you assigned. I don't know how your story should work, but I guess that after second ending, you can just set that persistent to "False" ...

Re: Remembering conditional branches even after the game ends?

Sounds like you're on the right track, just use persistent variables - https://www.renpy.org/doc/html/persistent.html Something like: default persistent.firstending = False #... something happens $persistent.firstending = True #------------------------------- # back to where you want to have branch:...

Re: Changing a character's associated image in the middle of the game

I did something similar on old Ren'Py version, but hopefully it will still work with new layered image system. The old and good ConditionSwitch! It might be not 100% correct, but something like: define mc = Character("Elizabeth", image="mc") default mca = 0 #Main Character Age, just change variable ...

Re: Building game doesn't archive images in an .rpa file

First of all, by putting # in front of line, you comment them out - disable them. If you want to have separate archive for images, try this instead: build.archive('images', 'all') build.classify('game/**.png', 'images') build.classify('game/**.jpg', 'images') build.classify('game/**.webp', 'images')

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.

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 ...
