You play a girl blessed with mystic powers, but not to save the world - to protect the pure-hearted boy who IS supposed to save the world. (Basic gender reversal... You're Tuxedo Mask, as a girl.)
Hey, that sounds like the plot of GO! Magical Girl. :)

Re: GO! Magical Boy [new release with sources & help request]

Wow, thanks a lot for the compliments and the encouragement. Nice to hear G!MB is still fun to play! The story elements were pretty clear to me already in the beginning, but figuring out the details and writing them down took about one year (bearing in mind I wasn't writing full-time). Most parts I ...

Re: The Ren'Ai Archive (renai.us, RAA) all-in-one thread

Hi, may I ask you to upload the latest version of GO! Magical Boy to the RAA? The version on the RAA is the old release 004 for non-Vista Windows only ( http://www.renai.us/game/gomagicalboy.shtml ). I've just released 006 for all platforms ( http://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewtopic.php?p=13193#p1...

Small update - G!MB is confirmed to work on MS Vista, thus I'll upload it to download.com. Any info about the Mac and Linux versions, anyone? Pretty please?

Check file options.rpy, after the following section you can find the settings:

Code: Select all

Re: Backgrounds - your thoughts on this style

Sketchup is quite okay IMHO, at least I got better results with it than by trying to draw things myself (I'm pretty bad at drawing backgrounds). I've got some examples in the Screenshot contest thread and in this post of my the Cyberlin development thread . It does offers some basic lighting feature...

Re: Cyberlin - work in progress

Well, next update: The four chapters that make up the story are done, and re-writing/editing is proceeding well (at snail-pace, as usual). Two chapters are final, and I'm halfway through on the third. I've also copied the first chapter plus some finished graphics into Ren'Py 6.8.0 to see what it loo...

Re: A question about sound files

The reason why ogg is preferred is that it's a free format, whereas mp3 is not. Also, ogg is more efficient (smaller file size for equal quality). Also, re-encoding from one compressed format (such as mp3 to ogg) to another is generally a bad idea due to the loss in quality. Encode from the original...

Re: Save my HD!

Hm, Murphy's law is likely to strike if you make only one backup. A backup medium can become unreadable anytime, and then you're in trouble should your source get corrupted. The backup frequency should depend on the impact of a possible loss, IMO. Once a month is not enough if you're working full-ti...

Re: Save my HD!

Great news! And immediately when you get your PC back you will make one backup to a USB stick, then one to another USB stick, one to an external HD, one to a CD/DVD, and one to an online backup service. Oh yeah, and copy it to your mobile phone, too. (What do you mean, "too much?" That's what I'm do...
