Allowing player to name their save games

I'm working on a VN that allows for some branching paths and story-arcs, and one of the suggestions/requests I keep getting is to allow players to customize the names of their save games so they are better able to keep track of which branch/arc a save game relates to. In other words, when saving a g...

Re: Android Build Error when gradle is building the package

LOL. Alright, thanks! I guess I'm relieved it's not yet another error on my own part but good grief... for someone who is trying to do this for the very first time, it's frustrating as heck.

Android Build Error when gradle is building the package

After installing the various components for an android build, getting Renpy to recognize java in my registry, and all the other fun stuff that goes into trying to set this up, I appeared to finally get everything configured and the build was compiling until I encountered an error. On the plus side, ...

Re: Recommendations/Best Practices for translations on a work in progress?

Thanks, Ocelot. I've been putting everything into a single script file so far because I didn't know about doing multiple rpy files, but it looks like that's pretty straightforward and Ren'Py automatically scans them. So maybe if I put the list of images in one rpy file, then each chapter into its ow...

[SOLVED] Recommendations/Best Practices for translations on a work in progress?

Hi all. I hope the answer to this isn't "don't do it," but I'm working on a VN and one of my fans has offered to begin translating the content into another language. However, it is very much a work in progress with incremental releases. I'm passingly familiar with the "Generate Translations" feature...

Thanks, Donmai and RicharDann. I'm going to give Sublime a try as I've used it some at work.

Recommended Text Editor (other than Atom)

The situation could be much worse, but I just lost several hours worth of work on a script file in Atom when the laptop lid got shut. Atom’s recover package was a flop. The file is still 299k in size, but opens as a completely blank file. I gather this used to be a commonly reported issue so I’m jus...

Best practice for placement of long code following menu choices?

Hi all. New user here. I think I got the right sub-forum for this question but many apologies if not. I'm working on a set of menu choices, each of which trigger mutually exclusive but lengthy sequences of dialogue and scenes. I'm wondering whether there is a best practice or general recommendation ...
