Re: How do you work with Github and Renpy?

Probably a bit of a late reply, but I figured I'd leave this here in case you're still struggling with it :) Even though it's a bit of a leap if it's not something you're used to, I'd recommend downloading this to run git via command line if you haven't already. There's some GUIs that people have ma...

Re: Trouble with Time/Day Class

I don't have anything to test compile on right now, so forgive me if this is wrong. I think you should be just setting your clock in a Python statement on (for example) the first line of your start block, so like '$clock = Clock(1,1)' (including the dollar sign Python indicator) You need to be doing...

Re: Trouble with Time/Day Class

^ Was my first thought too ('time' is a name I'd be cautious to use because many languages have a preexisting 'time' thing), but in addition to that, I notice that when you're trying to call the class function you use 'action Function(time.adv_time)'. This has another issue, but also Python is case ...

Re: Opinions on how to use sprites in your game.

Christine Love did a talk at Visual;Conference 2017 with a piece of advice that really stuck with me. Basically she suggested that the sprite should change with every single line of dialogue, sometimes more. Not necessarily big changes, but even subtle little adjustments can make the game seem a lot...

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

This may be a bit of a tangent from the specific question asked by the OP, but some of the replies to this thread strike me as being detrimental to people who may be putting together a resume. In my computer science capstone class we had to make a resume and talk about it with our professors. The ge...

Re: Game with Typed In Conversation

It's only partially relevant I suppose, but have you seen the recent AI Dungeon 2 stuff? A very interesting parser based experiment haha I feel like people have already hit most of the notes for what would be required out of a type and play conversational game. I agree that keeping it short would be...

Re: Bee-Side [GxG][Romance/Comedy][Yuri Game Jam 2019][DEMO]

Oh hey, first of all, congrats on publishing (what looks to be) your first game! Everything was really cute and sweet, which seems fitting for the Yuri Game Jam haha. I just noticed you have a soundcloud, did you make the music yourself? If so, that's definitely something I think you should mention ...

Re: Bad Accidents Playtesting

Hey, congrats on getting a demo put together and sharing it with people! That's always a great first step to take as far as making a game goes, and it can be harder to put yourself out there than people would expect haha. Even without the art/music assets, I think there's still a lot you can get out...

Re: Help! TypeError: %c requires int or char

First of all, it may be helpful to people reading the thread if you wrap big chunks of code in a code tag! Otherwise it can be a little hard to read. (For example, your error says it's on line 61, but without line numbers it's hard to tell at a glance where the issue is) Since I'm on my phone and ca...

Re: How hard can it be to write a novel?[short][Free]

Oh woah, I know the organizer of NaNoTwiMo so it's super cool to see an entry for it posted. Congrats on submitting something! I like your use of framing things (like the title screen and the TV interview), it's a really neat idea! I also like your interpretation of the theme haha, very on the nose.

Re: Help with bust/waist/hip measurement

I would also recommend against referencing anime measurements, like Imperf3kt said. Honestly it's kind of distracting when a game/show whips out some totally ridiculous measurement. I feel like the clothing measurements thing is a good starting point, but I think you should also consider what you wa...

Re: Rollback issue

I haven't tested it, but it seems to me like the in_rollback() function gives you a pretty useful tool to deal with this (if you can check if the game is rolled back before calling your function, it seems like it should do it). That said, I'm not entirely sure I understand how your music function is...

Oh hell yeah, I'm always excited for mystery games (particularly with the subgenre escape room haha) so I'm looking forward to this. Also I appreciate when games respect my time and make themselves short, so 2-4 hours sounds great. I always like the idea of doing background in 3d too, and yours look...

Re: Chess game?

I'm also working on a chess minigame, the itch.io engine is super useful! (And the code is intentionally unarchived, I believe). In the public domain and everything. Thanks for the link, even though it wasn't even my question haha. Looking into it, you can also find the code/github for it here
