Creating a terminal like interface

Oh my, this account still works, and I even used my old default password. October 2006 eh, oh my. Remember the heady days of having to cobble together a kana type interface? Ahhh well. So I played Analogue from steam and noted it was a ren'py game and thought "hey it's been a while, and this termina...

Re: Flowcharts and Planning

I was just about to download the trial version of Visio, but I realized that even if I liked the program, there was pretty much no way I was going to spend that kind of money just to be able to make some flowcharts. Microsoft Office products are just insanely expensive. It's little wonder I'm still...

Re: Flowcharts and Planning

I find myself using that tool Labrynth that was mentioned somewhere on here. Lets you keep scraps as well as the flowcharting - bit of a pain to get used too though. http://www.habitualindolence.net/labyrinth/ Use it for planning table top rpg scenes/scenarios/campaigns and stories too. I used to us...

Re: Multiple main characters in a VN.

Sameheart took the multiple leads to an extreme if I remember. Could move between characters at various points (the game was nearly impossible to unlock without a walkthrough.) Ever17 did have a path with alot of persective jumping. Problem with switching characters during a narrative is it breaks y...

I'd help folk write scripts based on their ideas just as long as I had some freedom on character personality, I used to do a thing where someone would give me an idea and I'd give them back a super short story. Writing from other peoples briefs can be a pretty liberating experiance, you only have to...

hehe however in a modern democracy it is no longer the people who control the government, it all to often seems to be the media that taps into a primal fear (in this case pedophillia) it then milks this as hard as it can so the public simply seem to eat down the madness. Then the people start making...

Technically it's off the topic I suppose, however I actually think it's quite important. I know, it's strange the past few years have left me at a quandry and to be honest now that I think about it more having an uneleceted group of peers as opposed to an elected group of media puppets has it's adva...

I should raise a flag and say that this whole area tends to get me very stroppy. But I think censorship is something worth getting angry about. I agree with everything Jake said *ponders* From what I've ganered the manga in question is significantly less explicit then Lolita. I just feel there is a ...

Has anyone read Lolita? I think this is a pretty depressing kneejerk reaction showing the quite discusting reactionary opinions in modern western society. We're slowly slipping back into the dark ageas I'm afraid, where you can only tell tales that are acceptable to the general public. Just becouse ...

yeah the laws here are a bit grey at the moment (UK) On the realism and commentary front I agree, but fortunatly I feel those are things best left out of a good yarn. hmm I have to say that the Aeka resolution was the only sensible resolution I could come to given That it was made clear that 1: the ...

I'm talking about commercial translated games(and patched Japanese games) there are games that could be considered "light" but they tend to be more (story lacking) hentai games from what I've found. I don't know a single Kanji - and my Katakana/Hiragana isn't much better. I want to play comic party ...

I have to say that the market is pretty saturated with pretty dark tales. I don't mind them and sometimes I really enjoy them. However there are times where you wanna sit down, you wanna spend 5 or 6 hours wooing a cute girl and have silly encounters in an upbeat fashion, sure you can have some dram...
