Re: What tools do you use to manage your project?

Besides the human tools, like Discord, I use git to manage my code. Ren'Py code is just text, which works extremely well with a version control,system. If not for something like git I always end(ed) up with something like script.rpy, script_1.rpy, script_almost_but_not_working.rpy. Now everything is...

Re: Random events via objects and methods?

The Dating Sim Engine has a very nice event manager built in. It is very usable without the default user interface.

Re: Can I blit onto an imagemap?

If you want to use images for everything then I would suggest using imagemagick to create all your different combinations. To create a rounded image: http://www.imagemagick.org/Usage/thumbnails/#rounded To add text to an image: http://www.imagemagick.org/Usage/text/ A combination of these and a scri...

Re: Too many sad backstories???

In one of the writing podcast I listen to, the advice was given to use a spreadsheet for characters and /or plot-outlining. First I thought that to be a weird recommendation, but after trying it, a spreadsheet gives a nice overview of things. If you combine several character sheets on one page you c...

Re: PC builds/OS talk/questions

Depending on how old your laptop is, adding more memory (8gb is what I recommend for semi-power-users) and an ssd drive will speed up your system substantially, and might be cheaper then a new system. If you want to buy a new system, any modern processor you can buy is fast enough for photoshop and ...

Re: make stat building events more interesting?

To quote trooper6: I would want the encounters to be setting relevant rather than generic. How this could be done? One of the stats used in many games is money, so you have to work. But instead of repeating the same: "You go to work, you work 8 hours, you go home, you get 10 gold", it would be more ...

Re: How to check if a screen is currently shown?

For the current screen you could use renpy.get_screen, which returns the current screen:

Code: Select all

if renpy.get_screen("say"):
    text "The say screen is showing."
else:
    text "The say screen is hidden."

Re: Thinking of creating a YT Channel to Read and Support VN's - Good or bad?

A channel to watch visual novels being played sounds great, but I for one would not watch a whole novel on your channel. I would be interested in seeing what a game is about, what kind of music it has, like an honest demo of sorts :-). But a whole novel /storyline would take quite long, and if I lik...

Re: HELP US - How to Develop our GUI (textbox)??

The text fonts are too modern, you might look at some additional fonts: WW2 fonts . Some of these posters could give some ideas, I personally like this one: poster 9 I like the Gothic text for the German soldier, it would be nice to use something fitting for others as well. If, as previously stated,...

Re: Rpatool/Rpa Exactor does not work with new Ren'py anymore?

Considering that rpa extractors are cracking tools, this forum might not be the best place to ask for help using it πŸ˜‡.
Rpa extractors mess up indentation, and add text to the extracted files. You have to clean up the files.

Re: Name my game

Looking at the list, it is all a bit depressing:

- Fight, cry, repeat
- Questionable second chances
- If only ... if not
- Crying loop
- Loop of doubt
- Limited divinity
- Repeating misery
- Unsatisfying save-game

But you do have me curious about the name of your game :-)

Re: Any ideas to incentivize a protagonist to play RSP?

Depending on the kind of game, you could let them play for money. Working in games gets boring real fast, and being able to make some (or a lot of) extra money playing RPS would be the logical thing to do. As an extra incentive, you could do a 'Marty McFly' (from back to the Future): just call out y...
