Re: Summer Session

You have minions now? Do they call you "mistress"? Or maybe just "Great Papillion-sama"? ^_^

Nitpick: You don't get the price on the game until you hit the shopping cart. Don't do that, please. I always feel like I'm being scammed into something. >_<

Re: Ren'Py @ Otakon 2008

Say- regarding the whole "carpool from NYC to Otakon" dealie, I'm planning to drive down and have two seats open in my car, if anyone needs some.

Uhhh... the player does the thing, and you set the variable. Very basic.

Well, for the low-rent version: menu: "Punch him in the face": "I punch him in the face." jump punch "Kick him in the shins": "I kick him in the shins." jump kick "KAMEHAMEHA!": if Kamehameha == "known": "I blast him into orbit." jump kame else: "I don't know how to do that, so I kick him in the sh...

Re: Questions RE: Several Functions for a Game

And third, how would I make a special power system, like spells or such, along with stats to go with them? My thought was to make a few spells that the player would know from the start, and would learn through various parts of the game, to do things like predict what the favorable response would be...

Re: Inventory Menu/Price Code

It doesn't seem hard to me- create a numerical value for the amount of money your character has, insert the price of an item in it's description somewhere, and then just add and subtract as necessary. In a pinch, you don't even need to display the amount of money constantly since the user doesn't ne...

I didn't play True Love for the hentai aspect. :| Maybe I'm weird, then?
I don't think you need to take Bellos entirely seriously.
No, you don't. That was tongue-in-cheek. ^_^

Re: Seeking testers for True Love style dating sim

No hentai? But isn't that the fun of it?

Seriously, though. I'd be willing to do some testing, if you'd like. It sounds like fun, and we need more rom-sim games in the market.

Re: NVL mode text window

It sounds to me like you want the screen to say those two lines as if they're placards at the intro to a movie? Well, I'm a Ren'Py novice, but it seems to me the best way to do that would be to whip up two backgrounds in an image editor, each a black screen with the relevant line, and then use fades...

Re: Ren'Py must survive the Apocalypse

I suspect Ren'Py could be made to run on XO, although I don't know how well. Moore's law being what it is, I suspect that games that run poorly today will run well 5 years from now, on updated hardware. Hardware, yes. Software, no. When the standard moved from Win95/98 to NT-based systems, a lot of...

Re: Burmuda Triangle

First off, you misspelled "Bermuda". Second, I frankly don't see this idea working. For one, it assumes the player has fully-functional headphones, and can distinguish which way the sound is coming from. And there are other problems, some of which have been brought up. Like, how do you deal with mul...

Uru Live rant incoming...

Okay, so lately I've been spending way too much time playing Uru Live, the online Myst sequel. Earlier this evening I booted it up to run through one of the early ages, one with a kind of "ancient ruins" feel. It starts out fairly easy- I solve the first puzzle fairly easily due to discovering that ...
