Re: Best way to transfer project info to/from cloud? Git?

GitHub has recently started offering unlimited free (edit: private) Git repositories as well! With a restriction very similar to BitBucket's: you can only add up to 3 collaborators in free private repositories (so 4 people in total, including you). BitBucket allows 5 people in total in their private...

Re: class Fonction synthax in imagebutton action

Don't worry, it's not much! So you'd like to check if there is at least one item in the container_trash , and if at least one item is droppable ? That's not too complicated! That said, for the record, if container_trash contains 0 items (that is, if container_trash.items is an empty list), then the ...

Re: class Fonction synthax in imagebutton action

Yup, I believe the problem is that you call C ontainer.drop ! C ontainer with an uppercase C refers to the Container class , which is the template/blueprint from which you can create actual containers. So when you call C ontainer.drop , you're not referring to any specific container, and the drop me...

Re: Need help on improving my code with Players and Skills

Thank you for clarifying this, Rastagong, I had always assumed a new list was being created for each instance, and as I always overwrote them later, I never noticed all instances where using the same list all along. I'll be sure to read the links you suggested so this doesn't happen again. Sorry fo...

Re: Need help on improving my code with Players and Skills

Both bugs come from the __init__ constructor of the Player class! More specifically, from the status parameter, where you used an empty list ( [] ) as a default value for status . To begin with, lists are mutable: they can be modified (with append() , remove() , etc). The problem is that in Python, ...

Re: Benefits of Visual Novels?

I'm into VNs for the engaging presentation! I used to be very interested in pure text, parser-based interactive fiction (and to some extent in Twine games too). But then I started reading visual novels, and realised I wasn't so interested in choices per se, but rather in immersion, first-person pers...

Re: Carmilla [Philosophy][Shoujo Ai][Vampire][free][Demo]

Perhaps a word on why I decided to keep landscape descriptions to a large degree: Streams-of-consciousness of an I-narrator are rightfully common among visual novels. Here, in romantic tradition, the landscape mirrors or expresses the inner state of the protagonist, it takes the place of a stream-o...

Re: [Epistolary][Mystery] Sylvan Disappearance

I usually prefer VNs in which the reader is given some choices, but your story is really good! It was a bit anachronistic, but I don't care that much for historical accuracy :P The epistolary form is a very interesting narrative device. It is perfect for conveying the alienation of the main charact...

Re: Carmilla [Philosophy][Shoujo Ai][Vampire][free][Demo]

I'd been meaning to read the demo for a while, so I was very glad when I saw you uploaded the full release (edit: putting the link here for everyone, since the full release is available on a distinct itch.io page) on itch.io! Just finished reading it, and I really, really liked it! Perhaps I liked i...

Re: itch.io changed its ToS

Hey so, I didn't want to keep replying and give unwanted attention to this nonsense, and I assume other posters thought as much, but since you're still tweeting @itchio and trying to worry devs, I'll reply one last time. Yes, these terms are common. However, this doesn't make it good per se (e.g. ha...

Re: [Completed][Epistolary][Mystery] Sylvan Disappearance

@Rastagong- WOW! . . . what a marvelous story . . . in all respects. Among all the VN's that I have experienced, this is certainly in the top 5! I thoroughly enjoyed the time spent going through it. I especially appreciated the True Epilogue and End Notes. Thank you for a truly worthwhile experienc...

Re: Proper use of the {w} tag in visual novels.

It annoyed me a lot in older VNs. I used to read one paperback novel every 2-3 days back when I first discovered VNs, and all the pauses annoyed the heck out of me. Especially the whole "..." thing they used to do a LOT. Like everything pauses and waiting have their uses, like you mentioned for hor...
