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...

Re: Blankspace [Mystery/Puzzle/Escape Room][BxG]

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

Re: Shout For Joy, Share Your Happiness

Feeling pretty good! I just got done demoing one of my games at a local science museum all weekend, and the first draft of the script for my VN should be done by Wednesday (I've done a ton of small digital projects, but I'm excited to work on something that'll take someone longer than an hour to fin...

Re: Ignis VN [Medieval|Fantasy|Fairytale Inspired][DEMO]

I love it when a VN has a story that is immediately compelling! You always see a bunch of 'fairytales... except edgy' stories, but I really like the direction this seems to be going. The art definitely adds to it too, I'm looking forward to the release! (Also I hope you're feeling better)

Re: Fast pace stories or drawn out stories?

This is probably obvious, but for me a lot of it is in quality. If it's Not Good, then I prefer it to just be over sooner... But those really great stories that go on for ages are some of my favorites. I remember after I finished playing Umineko (over the course of a few months) I just sat there thi...

Re: Pre-demo tips anyone? (please help)

It seems to me that wondering if your following is big enough to release a demo is kind of self defeating? Like I feel like one of the draws of a demo is that it is something to show people what you're working on so they'll want to see more. Definitely include links to your social media presence if ...

Re: Iterative updates and old save files

Adding new things should be fine, you just don't want to be in a situation where the game is looking for something that doesn't exist from a previous iteration

Re: I need help with Art

It strikes me that on the dialogue boxes, the text looks uncomfortably close to the top of the box. Spacing it out a little more and increasing the padding would give it some more room to breath and help it look a little less unbalanced. I agree that the decision to make it look like a folder is rea...

Re: Learn Python

Knowing a little bit of programming will always make videogame dev easier, even in something (relatively) simple like Renpy. I recommend this Python tutorial, it's really easy to follow and has inline code testing stuff.

I tried it both in Sublime & Notepad++, unfortunately it does not work. I have tried that one before, or something very similar. Does that site work for Python, because I don't see it as an option in the pulldown? Or does it not matter? Appreciate your time & the links! :) Got it, it looks like thi...

Re: Do you play as same or opposite gender?

Man this seems like it shouldn't be a complicated question, yet it kinda is huh. Usually, if given the option, I'll play as a girl. But I actually ended up giving up on the last Harvest Moon game I played because I started playing as a girl, realized the girls were so much better (dateability wise) ...

Re: Find & Replace {t}{/t} Question [UNSOLVED]

Oh, if it's like actual regex then this should be what you want: (jm "{mt})(.)+({/mt}") (Oh and if it complains about the backslash then use this one, but I think the first one should be fine probably) (jm "{mt})(.)+({\/mt}") Whenever I have to do regex stuff, I find RegExr really helpful (plus a re...
