Re: Placeholder [Psychological Thriller][Metanarrative][Horror?][Free]

I enjoyed this a lot, and I would definitely recommend putting it on itch.io at the very least. It's very easy to set up an account and upload games and it'll get you a lot more traffic. I thought what you did with this concept was incredibly clever - media focusing on metanarrative themes is nothi...

Placeholder [Psychological Thriller][Metanarrative][Horror?][Free]

title_screen.png Edit: Now on Itch.io Okay, so a bit of backstory here. This was supposed to just be a test to prove to myself that I was actually capable of making a visual novel and was never meant to be released to the public. Almost everything but the writing consists of royalty-free placeholde...

Re: Right clicking in game menu causing error.

Figured it out on my own. Messed something up in the screens.rpy file trying to make the game menu background solid rather than transparent. Switched it back and it's all good.

Right clicking in game menu causing error.

This is pretty much the least intrusive error I've run into as it ONLY happens when going into preferences from the main menu, but I still want to know how this happened and how I can get rid of it just to prevent any bad first impressions. Here's the error message: I'm sorry, but an uncaught except...

Re: Is there any way to do a forced text speed/disable dialogue clickthrough?

Create a brand new project and put all of this code in it exactly. Then try it out and see the differences between the 4 different versions of characters. I assume what you want is version 4. define a = Character('Alpha', color="#994411", what_color="#FFFFCC", what_slow_cps=20,) define b = Characte...

Re: Is there any way to do a forced text speed/disable dialogue clickthrough?

Well that all depends on exactly what you're trying to achieve. Where is this text? In the say window? Why do you need it unskippable? Is anything else showing? Etc etc. Yeah, it's the say window. It's just a single short line: f "Your full name is Jack _______" I want a static sound effect to play...

Re: Is there any way to do a forced text speed/disable dialogue clickthrough?

You can easily achieve this through ATL Give Ren'Py the displayable (text), add a hard pause, set a sound to play at a given moment, combine it. I'd give you a better example, but I mostly read this forum via my phone which makes giving examples both hard and time consuming. I can do a hard pause w...

Is there any way to do a forced text speed/disable dialogue clickthrough?

I searched and found a few things similar to my issue, but not quite the same. So what I'm trying to do is make a single line of dialogue slow and not allow the player to click so that the full line is shown. I want to have a sound effect coincide with one of the words, but that's impossible to do w...

Re: Guestbook

Hey everybody. Huge VN fan here that finally decided to look into making my own. I'm a self-published author with three novels out and thought "hey, why not turn one of them into a visual novel?" I was sort of inspired to go down that route by Doki Doki Literature Club and how it was largely done by...
