Re: Megaupload down?

I asked them, though the reply was 3-4 years ago: they said as long as there is nothing "extreme", and is represented only through artwork (no images/video of real people) it's "OK". I'm guessing hentai that doesn't contain incest or other stuff should be good then (might be worth asking them again...

Re: NaNoRenO for 2011!!!!

I had to actually write my own word count script ( >.o ) because something like a whole quarter of the game's writing is in a form that Lint doesn't count.

If I finish a novel for this, it'll be in 640x480!
How about we split the difference and say 640x400? I can't see how that could possibly go wrong!

Re: NaNoRenO for 2011!!!!

No! Bad! It's not ten years ago, don't use tiny 4:3 resolutions! During one of the last conversations about this, 1024x640 was given as the ideal, and I think it's still basically true: since it's 16:9, scales very well on netbooks because it's close enough to 1024x576, and fits in a window on a 102...

Since it looks like I'm updating this thing semi-frequently after all, you can throw me in, too:

Untitled NaNo project -- need a few CGs

So for my fifth NaNoRenO project, I figured I would fall back on the tried-but-true tradition of using free resources. No problem! Right? http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lhefnh38qg1qzw06jo1_500.png http://30.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lhgqakw4as1qzw06jo1_500.png (Click to embiggen.) Well, it does, in...

Re: NaNoRenO for 2011?

I guess I hinted at it earlier, but never actually said it. I'll definitely be doing NaNo this year, thus marking the fifth time I've done it. Dang! So I'm feeling pretty confident about this. It's going to be super neat! http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lhefnh38qg1qzw06jo1_500.png Really, guys, if...

Re: NaNoRenO for 2011?

You don't have to ask anyone; of course there is. It's not a big formal affair or anything. If you want to do NaNoRenO, then you do it. So long as there's at least one person making a VN in the span of the month of March, then yes, there's NaNoRenO. Someone will make a thread when it gets closer, bu...

Re: WIP - Love & Order

Oh, geeze. That's... I think I see how that happened, and that's really surprising.

Could you tell me-- just roughly, it doesn't have to be exact-- what day you were on when you got that crash, and how many projects you'd completed?

Re: WIP - Love & Order

I'd like to figure out what you experienced, tsukamaete, but this is pretty tricky to diagnose. I just finished playing through the demo (the version prior to the one just updated, so maybe some of the things I'm mentioning got fixed!). I played through the demo a few times and I think I had problem...

Thanks so much for the feedback, guys! I really appreciate it. I've pushed a number of changes based off the suggestions-- please, keep them coming-- thus far. I don't have any control of the download system, but hopefully Jack will put through the updates in the morning. :) Things I've put in: A ca...

Re: General Website Optimization

You really shouldn't use Flash for any navigation whatsoever. It's a really bad practice, and nowadays there isn't any point in doing it, since there's nothing you can do in Flash that you can't do with HTML and JavaScript in a way that's much faster, and degrades much more nicely. Flash should only...
