Re: What are your favorite/least favorite VN tropes?

I really don't like the "Everything is a simulation" reveal as an ending in Fantasy and Sci-Fi stories especially when the beginning has a solid world-building foundation and magic system. Like come on now, if you can create a fantasy world and have all these characters I believe you're good enough ...

Re: Imagebutton GUI Framework [GxImagebuttons]

Hello! I don't want to necropost but I get this error when I attempt to Launch the Project. Would love to brush up on Imagebuttons again with the latest Ren'Py. I'm sorry, but an uncaught exception occurred. While running game code: File "game/example.rpy", line 113, in script image example = __Exam...

Re: (Ib fangame/visual novel) Looking for artist!

Just wanting to let you know... I'm willing! I'm interested! And it's because it's Ib and a fangame, I want to contribute, at least my style of drawing. Because I'm facing frustrations with my own fangames as well... EDIT: This is what I have as of the moment. http://www.deviantart.com/download/3222...

Re: A layered Main Menu?

You seem to have "imagemap" twice, you should remove the one above "ground" and see if it works. Hopefully you can use a transform with an imagemap like that - I haven't tested it out. If that fails, you can always use a vbox. Also, you can remove "mainmenu4" and just use "mainmenu3" for both the t...

Re: A layered Main Menu?

Just make the fading in into an ATL Transform and add it to the main menu screen in screens.rpy. For example, transform mainmenu1: alpha 0.1 linear 1.0 alpha 1.0 transform mainmenu2: alpha 0.1 1.0 linear 1.0 alpha 1.0 transform mainmenu3: alpha 0.1 2.0 linear 1.0 alpha 1.0 these are to fade in 3 di...

[SOLVED] Faking a layered Main Menu entrance!

I don't know how I should phrase my question but I want to achieve something like this: I want my imagemapped Main Menu to have a graceful entry. Certain parts of the picture enter one after the other like layers. The background comes in first (dissolve), http://www.deviantart.com/download/307067470...

Re: Writing, Art, Or Coding...What Do You Find the Hardest?

Writing is ALWAYS the hardest for me and it was further supported by the fact that I always get an F in Writing for Animation class. In my opinion about visual novels, the writing's the most important-- It's that factor that will get your audience to continue reading the story you want to tell! (Urg...

Re: Help me understand the Scrolling Load/Save Screen coding

And just to make sure, are old style hotspots written this way: X,W,Y,H No, old imagemap hotspots were (x1, y1, x2, y2), where x1, y1 - coordinates of top left corner and x2, y2 - coordinates of bottom right corner of hotspot. http://www.renpy.org/wiki/renpy/doc/reference/functions/renpy.imagemap h...

Re: Help me understand the Scrolling Load/Save Screen coding

Mmm, wait a bit. So you already have "Preferences" made of imagemap, don't you? And what about "Navigation" for it - do you have it? If "yes" then you don't need to make another one using layout, but if "no" and you want to make it using layout - then try to set hotspots in old style ('cause layout...

Re: Help me understand the Scrolling Load/Save Screen coding

Khm, not sure, but you could try... The new (screen language) imagemap hotspots are (x, y, width, height) where x, y - coordinates of top left corner of hotspot, but old imagemap hotspots were (x1, y1, x2, y2), where x2, y2, coordinates of bottom right corner of hotspot. So, change coordinates for ...
