How important is () when making screens?

I might have to elaborate later, but... When making screens how important is the ()? For example: screen testimony(): #<-That () is what I mean. imagemap: ground "debateui_ground" #Etcetera The reason I ask this is because when using "Check Script (Lint)" it complains when I leave out the () on any ...

Re: Pixellate in Transform?

You can use 'with' in transforms, just you have to tell it the displayable to transition to (and maybe back to) transform pixellate_to_new( new=Null(), old=Null() ): on show: new with pixellate on hide: old with pixellate ## show "old" at pixellate_to_new("images/new.png", "old") There are likely w...

I've been drawing a lot more for my game, recently. This is one of the drawings I'm more proud of.

Pixellate in Transform?

I might be missing something obvious, but I was wondering if it's possible to use pixellate in a transform. I'd use this for whenever I call a specific screen. I know I can use it as a transition like: but I want to use it in a transform so I can have it pixellate on show and hide. And so I don't ha...

Just a thought, Untested.

call a screen that fades in or whatever you want, and give it a timer. when the timer runs out, call the screen you're trying to show.
Found the problem. I needed to apply the transform to each of the screen's elements. Like for each imagemap, grid, text, fixed, etc.

Call Screen Pause (Solved)

Quick question, sorry for the rushed typing.
So I'm calling a screen. I use a transform on show and on hide. Whenever I call the screen, the screen's contents appear before the transition is complete. Is there a way to do this?

Thank you.

Choice Screen Appearing with Transition

Quick question. Is there a way to have the choice screen appear with a transition like dissolve or pixellate?
If so how?

Re: How do you design a good UI with fitting motifs?

One tip I've always kept to heart is: "A good UI is invisible to the user." When there are problems with the UI, players will notice. However when the UI is great, then no one will pay heed to it much. The goal is to make the UI intuitive and let the player do what they need to do without struggling...

Re: Phoenix Wright Blip and mouth animation library

Looks cool, this is something I've been interested in for a while now, but I really want to see it in action before I try copying it.
Can you provide a video demonstration, or a download of a sample project in a zip folder?

Onomatopoeia, Writing Sound Effects

There's something I've been struggling off and on with, sound effects. Specifically, writing them. Note: I'm going to be writing this with the rash assumption that anyone who reads this can hear. Most VNs will generally use sound effects (sfx) whether it's to illustrate where the scene is (Example: ...

Bare bones music generator with minimal user input. You may copy the following code, or download the zip file for the full game including the sounds I used. I encourage everyone to experiment and improve the code. I hope to be doing the same and uploading my own upgrades to this code. Have fun! UPDA...

Textbox/Side Image Approach

Here's a screenshot of the textbox for the POV character. I took a page from Zero Time Dilemma with this design by making the portrait part of the textbox. Basically I wanted to show the POV character's design, but still make him feel unique compared to the NPCs. What do you think of this approach? ...
