Re: Good story but decent art

If the story is actually good, then of course not! One big example for me is Umineko No Naku Koro ni (the visual novel). I watched at first the anime and since I wanted to know more, I look it up and when I saw the artwork I though: "Ok, this is a joke. this is not the real one" and then imagine my ...

Re: Daily points and/or chapters?

Not to sound offensive but if you know ppl can cheat and bypass that feature of your game... Wouldn't that make it Not useful at all?

Although I do have ve seen it on mobile phones, but Idk what would be the mechanic to do it on Renpy :c

For Chapters, I'm sure you have to use Persistent.

Re: And I saw the stars falling down... [Visual Novel][Psychological][Drama][Mystery?][FREE]

Update! Just to tell you guys that I've completed the programming of something very important in a visual novel: The text Settings. If the settings of the text makes the fonts so small that you don't feel comfortable to read it all, it just makes everything so unpleasant to read (bc I've seen way t...

Re: Minimizing Project Length

I suppose the best advice I can give is ... write down exactly what you want to include in your game, and then call it a day. The rest is self-control! You'll have your plan, and you'll have to stick to it. For the additional ideas, you can make a second list and use them for potential future games...

Re: And I saw the stars falling down... [Visual Novel][Psychological][Drama][Mystery?][FREE]

Hi there! Thanks for your words! 😊 I'm writing it directly in english. But there'll be also a spanish version, only not when I released it at first. It'll be after I finish this one. Mostly bc I want to make sure the script will "show" the same "feelings" in English and Spanish. And bc I'm going to ...

Re: Need help with CTC..

Firstly, hey! I'm another fan of Ryukishi's work! (Although I've only *read* the whole visual novel of Umineko but I've watched the anime of Higurashi.) Now, about the CTC, it's not necessary for you to create a whole new screen for a CTC. I remember being a thread in the Cookbook subforum. Here it ...

Re: A Game I Made For Practice is Getting Attention. Do I Continue Development?

I think it depends entirely on you. I know this is not really a good advice πŸ˜… but well, being pressured to continue on something you don't want to, feels.... bad for you. On the other hand, maybe as a way to appreciate the feedback you are getting, you could update only some things, as a way to enco...

Re: how to set a main menu image

That's because your main_menu.jpg it's not in the "gui" folder. It's on the "images" folder. You have to put it like this: gui/images/main_menu.jpg, or just images/main_menu.jpg

Re: "A Simple Gesture" - Studio Yuraki - Artist of DDLC [Slice of Life]

1. What are your first impressions on "A Simple Gesture" in terms of genre, tone and art quality? What kind of content are you expecting from what you've seen? Why kids... why small children on Japan? This makes me severely uncomfortable. Like, REALLY uncomfortable. Not that there's something wrong...

Re: Critique my writing! + Some pointers/tips to remember?

I read the entire script and while the beginning didn't seem much interesting, i think that's pretty much my own bias? :P Anything to do with world building doesn't really seem interesting to me. BUT! I also force myself to read those kind of stories because hey! it can be a fun new world! I read it...
