Re: Does using Ren'Py mean I have experience with Python?

I've done some more complex coding using Python for my VN. I would not consider myself skilled enough in Python to put it on my resume by a mile. That is way more complex.

Re: Copyright for posing?

Same disclaimer
Copyright often isn't a yes or no binary answer but more of a greyscale where if enough elements are the same it will eventually add up to substantially similar. If you only use the pose and lighting as a reference you should probably be alright.

Re: A question

Sorry not interested in giving up my mail adres in a poll. So I'll give the answer to your question here. With an 800 year gap say 30 generations or so there isn't very much familial relationship anymore. I think that if you go back that far in a family tree you just end up being 'related' to millio...

Re: Is renpy good to use with Daz3d?

There are a lot of Ren'Py games that use Daz3D as a base. This is both a good and a bad thing. The good thing is that a lot of assets are being developed for Daz. The downside is that it makes it hard for you to differentiate your game from countless others as the visual style is similar. It can be ...

Re: What are your favorite/least favorite VN tropes?

What I dislike in the VN's I play are: Douche protagonists who think the world of themselves and act like it to other characters. Dead parents (Sometimes seems like half the VN's I play have an MC with dead parents mostly due to an accident or other non natural way) The MC has amnesia (often just a ...

Re: About copyright

Warning: In some countries, copyright transfer are not legally allowed. (However, you can still buy licenses in order to be able to use it freely. The only thing you can't buy in countries like mine are the moral rights: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moral_rights) That would be one of those exclusi...

Re: Question about parodies (I have no idea how to word this so please read lol)

Hmm I'd make some concept-art, maybe the story brief and some reference images of the consoles and logo's. (The better your research the less they have to do and the cheaper they are). I guess you'd just search copyright/trademark lawyer UK and ask a couple of them to quote you a price for their wor...

Re: Question about parodies (I have no idea how to word this so please read lol)

Well, uhh, this would be one of those situations where I'd consult a lawyer. Because it might be some sort of fair use because it is a parody but there is also the trademark law that doesn't have those exemptions (as far as I know). Yeah this is a though one. But based on web comics that use console...

Re: Gender and personality of the protagonist bias

An empty character is not a problem for me per say. It does need other characters to have a decent personality and my choices need to have an impact on those characters. What I really hate are protagonists that are full of themselves. I guess it comes from the Hero thing where you need to make the p...

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

Having most of the game done prior to demo-release/crowdfunding seems like the safer, more responsible bet. :) Yeah it's more of a marketing tool then. Getting the word out. So it serves a different purpose but if used well can be highly effective. Maybe it's different if you have a team that works...

Re: Do you "play" or "read" Visual Novels?

I'm more in the play camp. But I can see a good case being made for read. I guess it also depends on the VN. Some leaning more towards passive uptake while others lean more towards being a game. If you have to think hard about what the 'right' option is (in the sense of roleplaying not just to guess...

Re: Are dating sims just an excuse for porn?

I think it's wrong to think that NSFW scenes cheapens everything you do. That would mean if there is a sex scene in a movie that means it has to be porn. I think that in movies the reverse might actually be true where the more explicit the sex scenes in a movie the more artsy it generally is (e.g. L...

Re: Voting for someone based on a percentage?

Re: Voting for someone based on a percentage?

def voting(): if votes == []: votes = ['a','b','c'] #to prevent an error if the list is empty. renpy.jump('won'+renpy.random.choice(votes)) this part causes this error: file "game/scriptvote.rpy", line 7: Tab characters are not allowed in Ren'Py scripts. line seven being "if votes == []:" Oh sorry ...
