Re: [OPEN][PAID]Competent Proofreader/Copyeditor/Writer

After I was happy with Wolo's feedback on my previous game, I decided to hire him for editing my new project. He did this reliably and he left a lot of comments explaining his reasonings for more extensive changes in the script. The communication over discord worked well and he also gave me good fee...

Re: OPEN: English to German translations! (FREE/PAID)

Thank you for the kind review! I hope we can work together again sometime. __ UPDATE: I now have a special offer for a limited time! I will translate 1 non-commercial project for free, if it is less than 40k words long. It doesn't have to be a NaNoRenO project. If your project is longer than 40k wor...

Re: Gender and personality of the protagonist bias

I don't care what gender the PoV character is, in my opinion it's the genre and the author that matter here. The following assumes we're not talking about a blank slate character - those are the most uninteresting to me. the Genre: In a romance-focused story, I've come to expect certain stereotypes....

Re: Academy of Heroines [Supernatural][Drama][Romance]

I have to admit, Rosaline is a very close runner-up, especially with her new profile now. :'D
Macros brought up a very good point actually, I am also curious about the MC. I also prefer MCs with personality, so I'd be interested to hear more about this one's.

Re: Will config.replace_text affect performance?

I see, thank you for the insight. So it seems harmless. I just wanted to mostly replace all the "--" in my script with em dashes and this seemed like an easy way to do it. Perhaps I can find another way though (MS Word or something), now that I have my script all compiled in a single document (for e...

Will config.replace_text affect performance?

Hi! I recently discovered the config.replace_text variable in the Ren'Py documentation: def replace_text(s): s = s.replace("'", u'\u2019') # apostrophe s = s.replace('--', u'\u2014') # em dash s = s.replace('...', u'\u2026') # ellipsis return s config.replace_text = replace_text I want to use it, bu...

Re: Academy of Heroines [Supernatural][Drama][Romance]

You've got a fun project here by the looks of it, I'll be following the development. It looks very ambitious, so I hope you will find the motivation and time to st...

Re: HATE is a 4 Letter Word [18+] [Object Heads] [Commercial] [MxM, MxF]

Since I posted this thread, there's been some progress that I'd like to share. The majority of the script is now written. About 90% of the content of the routes and the first ending have been finished. It was sent off to an editor, who will check it for consistency, spelling/grammar, and the like. T...

Re: How do you write "complex" characters?

Writing a character is mostly intuition to me. They seem to develop naturally over time from my initial, barebones concepts. But I do sit down and think about my characters every now and then. I think what makes a character confusing is giving them many contradicting goals and emotions, and having t...

Re: Music Producer/Composer with 8 years of experience.

I commissioned Roy for a custom soundtrack for my visual novel project "HATE is a 4 Letter Word". He delivered the songs for the soundtrack even before the deadline I gave him. I greatly enjoyed working with him. The communication was honest and prompt via discord. My instructions were rather vague ...

Re: change side image when character doesen't speak

I got around this in a somewhat hacky (?) way. I added the MC's side image to the other characters as well. Example, my main character looks like this: define r = Character("ROSWELL", image="roswell", window_left_padding=240) Now, for every other character where I want the side image of the MC to sh...
