Re: MorningStar

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately I can't seem to be able to access any of these links :( I get DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN for all of them. I've mentioned to Ficedula that it's not working. As a temporary workaround - if you know what you're doing - putting the following in your hosts file will ...

Re: Heavy Gear VN [Sci-Fi][SliceOfLife][Adventure][Free]

A couple of points: - DP9 always used to have fairly clear licensing information for fan works on their website; they don't seem to have it directly linked any more, and I know they're being a lot more careful with image stuff recently thanks to various joint ventures with other companies and issues...

Re: MorningStar: Grand Tour [VN/SRPG,GxG,Magical Girl][NaNo2

The game isn't ready yet, but here's some screenshots:

Here is a picture of a Cornish lady being electrocuted in the face (she totally deserves it)

Let's invade random countries! It's fun and educational! (Seriously, I had no idea a place called Thuringia existed before working on this game.)
Naturally all of the art was done ages ago, we're just waiting on those writers, always holding projects up, etc., etc., etc. ;-)

Re: MorningStar: Grand Tour [VN/SRPG,GxG,Magical Girl][NaNo2

Since the artwork for this game is nearly finished now, I thought I'd post some previews of some of the other backgrounds: First up, the German office. The Germans had seen the French office and wanted something even more reflective : Untitled-1.png The Italians, on the other hand, never clean their...

Re: MorningStar: Grand Tour [VN/SRPG,GxG,Magical Girl][NaNo2

I swear I heard a Rococo joke somewhere... some shoujo anime from a few years back I think the only anime series I've ever heard mention Rococo at all was Honey and Clover , so if it wasn't that, I have no idea. Although there was plenty of it in Gankutsuou for historical accuracy reasons, of course.

Re: MorningStar: Grand Tour [VN/SRPG,GxG,Magical Girl][NaNo2

I couldn't bring myself to do the full-on hardcore Rococo for this background, because it's already tasteless and tacky enough (and it would have taken all month). I guess it's twenty-xty-six-era Modern Rococo Revival? French-Int.png (The German office was designed by Gropius' and van der Rohe's sec...

sorry, haven't had time to make smaller versions to embed What Fice is trying to say here is "sorry, I don't really understand how images work on the Internet". Look, he doesn't even have a working avatar, poor chap. I'm working on the background art for this project, and have spent most of my afte...

Re: RPG Battle Engine - Alpha 7.5, downloads in first post

This and getting stats back into Ren'Py or a different Python land can be semi-automated with a bridge function. To put it more directly - variables in "Ren'Py land" are Python variables, there's absolutely no difference between the two. Any line which starts with a '$' in Ren'Py-script is a line o...

Re: Chronicle of Mars [Sci-Fi] [SRPG] [Done] [NaNo 2013]

- enjoyed the game Glad to hear it! - interesting that the demo presented left-wing/right-wing ideologies in a fairly neutral way. usually, most people tend to portray one side as ignorant, misguided, irrational, or really super evil because it's hard to step outside of one's personal political bel...

As I've been receiving an increasing number of requests for commercial licensing, I've taken a few minutes to write up some details about commercial licensing on the battle engine site, you can find it here: http://www.eviscerate.net/article/licensing Obviously if you're making a non-commercial game...

Re: RPG Battle Engine - Alpha 7.5, downloads in first post

Just wanted to say thanks for not just creating your engine but putting all the code out there. I've learned a *lot* by studying it and I still regularly look at how you get things done when I'm stumped writing my own (basic) combat engine. You're welcome - I'm glad it's useful! I did notice that t...

init char stats placed in true position - after start label but not saved anyway. Sorry, I'd missed this post earlier - apologies for the slow reply!
