Just got handed the keys to my new house.
Is now officially mine and I can start putting my stuff in it.
Congrats! Getting a house of your own is so amazing! I just celebrated one year of having mine. It's taken so long just to set up my house, let alone decorate it. Have lots of fun! :)

Re: Music Importance

Music can definitely set a scene or ruin it. It all depends on exactly what kinds of feelings you're trying to convey in the game as well as the mood. Throughout my game, I use music in certain parts for sadness or battles or happy moments. And, other times I just shut off the music and keep it sile...

Re: I'm new, sorry, but...

What Isobellesophia said is totally true. I tried learning to code/use Ren'Py through YT and it was ridiculously hard. Plus, a lot of people who make tutorial videos just basically seem to do stuff without actually explaining it and they go quick and it's just.. bleh. Welcome to the forums! And, no ...

Re: Why most visual novels stay as demos for so long.

I'll chime in, having a 3-year long demo (which stemmed from something used as physical therapy into a game), that everyone has different reasons for creating a game on top of different skills and teams. I am by myself. I'm partially disabled. I had back to back arm surgeries which led me to learnin...

Re: Can't get Dialogue Box to appear on screen.

Thank you for your help! With this new update, I didn't realize that yalign would even show up under the gui as style. I finally fixed it, so I appreciate your input! In terms of the 800x600, I'm working with a screen that has a resolution of 2560X1440, so my game has been able to fit modern and old...

Re: Game Interface Help

I kind of did an imagemap similar to this and can basically be repeated over and over. You pick berries in each screen until you get down to one main berry and start all over again or jump to the next screen by clicking the main berry. Maybe this might help you out? What my screens file lists: #####...

Can't get Dialogue Box to appear on screen. {Solved}

So, I'll post what I have code-wise and hopefully you guys can help me come to a conclusion. This is in my Options: style.window.background = Frame("textbox.png",2,2) style.say_who_window.background = Frame("namebox.png",1,1) ## Margin is space surrounding the window, where the background ## is not ...

Re: Art Dumpage! Show your art ^^

I'm finally finishing up my game that I've been making for almost 3 years, having taken a long hiatus to better my art. My father-in-law gifted me Photoshop, so my art definitely looks better thanks to brushes and whatnot! :) Newest Art https://images-wixmp-ed30a86b8c4ca887773594c2.wixmp.com/f/716ed...

Re: Reference preferences

I use DeviantArt to keep track of my art and make albums to show people.

Re: FileSave, FileLoad and Restart Game prompts

I'm not 100% sure of what you're asking, so I'll just post codes of things like game prompts and whatnot and see if that can help? In terms of your save button constantly being activated, maybe an imagemap might help with that issue? Here's what my menu has and it has a hover and idle and idle/hover...

Re: Several textboxes NOT simultaneously

You can always design your dialogue as text bubbles or boxes in the same way as sprites and then show them that way wherever you want. You can animate them and simulate text messages or whatever you need.

Re: Custom Save Screen with Imagemapping

So, like my main menu, you'll want to start with the basic codes that Ren'Py provides. I used the below code to set up my save file slot designs, starting with the original code and then tweaking it around and taking it apart and adding things to it until it gives me what I want. screen load_save_sl...

Re: {SOLVED!} Why won't sound or music play at all?!

Definitely! Coding is crazy when you do it by yourself. That's why it's best when people help each other out. I hate the simple errors like that, too. Thanks, again! :) Now I just have to figure out my dialogue/textbox and everything will finally be figured out. These new updates kinda made things c...
