Re: Automatic Scaling

The last time I checked, Ren'Py was intended to create VN's - or did I misread something? Really, I have until now to find *one* example of a game that would require such high resolution especially when many (if not most) people use smaller resolutions. The question itself is a contradiction in term...

Those were made with eFrontier's Poser 7. Top figure with Eileen is the DAZ Aiko-3 character dressed in the 'AP_Outfit' by Al3d & Peti1958, the hair set is 'Moko_Hair' by Yamamoto. Those are all pay-packs, you need to buy them online. Bottom figure is the free MayaX MayaDoll with the free Maya 'Anim...

Not everybody's cup of tea are completely rendered characters. There's enough software out there: some however cost a packet (US$ 188) but it's still cheaper than buying something like Photoshop and having to learn how to draw ;-) One can set up a character and set his expressions, then let the soft...

Tried it under WinXP SP2: five times as single task, five times under load (P7 rendering in background), five times with VD Compressing video in background. Not a single flaw ... Mmmmmhhh ... I know I sometimes have *very* peculiar ideas, but what Codec was used for compressing the MPG originally? I...

A friend of mine calls many vacation/advertisement pics 'tobbed', referring to the orange/brown tinted top 1/3 of the picture ... the same filter (but less powerful) is applied there to reduce the glare of a real blue sky, for example one over white beaches and blue/green water, etc. The filter itse...

Way to go! Did I ever mention PyTom is a genius? It looks great ... should make things a lot easier in some cases. As we can set the layer priority, one could have a 'sepia' or otherwise monochrome image (perhaps combined with translucency) of the same character 'shift' out from 'behind' or 'under' ...

Twar, EITHER change your default options.rpy entry from: ... # style.mm_menu_frame.xpos = 0.5 # style.mm_menu_frame.xanchor = 0.5 # style.mm_menu_frame.ypos = 0.75 # style.mm_menu_frame.yanchor = 0.5 ... to the normal form (removing the '# ' in front of the lines): ... style.mm_menu_frame.xpos = 0.5...

Ummm ... I would think Ivlivs means grayscale instead of B&W? I don't know what discussion DaFool's talking about, but PyTom: ... since it's a fairly slow operation with limited uses ... I don't want to get bashed here, but the RGB - Grayscale conversion is supported directly by the PIL as far as I ...

From your code example shown above, comment out the two 'wipeleft' lines like this: # show bg meteor_dream with wipeleft # hide bg meteor_dream with wipeleft Copy this picture ( meteor.png ) into your game directory. It's a snippet from your "06_meteor.jpg", I just cleared the surroundings and chang...

If I understand correctly, you want to output the text in the normal textbox. Let's say you want your character to be introduced, like: ... xy "My name is Croft ... James Croft" ... ... only that the surname and given name are variable. The 'xy' character of course has to be defined as normal charac...

(Newbie comment) If my feverish brain (no simple cold, it's a full-sized flu) gets it correctly, Fawkes wants the 'meteor' background to appear (and vanish) while his character remains on the right. I tried his code with replacement pics (starting with a blank background) and have two comments. Corr...

Stumped: ui.frame, box & ui.text

Hi there! (warning: newbie inside!) I thought I'd go playing with some of the bigger boys and started fiddling around with a few 'ui' thingies today. Crafty little me thought it a good idea to knock together a little bit of code looking like this: python: def stats_frame(name, rskil, mskil, rstam, m...
