Re: "Press X to not Die"- Opinions on Quick Time Events

QTEs are horrible and you should feel bad for even thinking of using them. That is all. More seriously though, QTEs exist pretty much solely to stop people with short attention spans from falling asleep during cut-scenes. Since a VN is by nature almost entirely cut-scene, they're not your target aud...

Re: Lost Child: Emerald World

Just finished reading it, and I must say that I'll be eagerly anticipating the next part. :)
I love the dreamlike feel this game has.

Re: 'Reader' vs 'Player' vs another word entirely?

Reader is a good word, player is not. I never ever describe myself as "playing" VNs, always "reading".

Re: Nero279's Art Thread + Sketch Requests! [Chibis/OPEN]

Could you draw Nyaruko from Haiyore Naruko-san please? As for criticism on the characters: They all look very similar. It's partially just the similar poses, but they all have very similar body types and hairstyles. I honestly wouldn't know that the girl was a girl without being told, (Dunno if that...

Re: In what order do you build up your ideas?

For me, it varies depending on the initial idea that comes to me. Over 80% of the time though, I just come up with the story from beginning to end, because that's by far the most important thing to me. The characters and setting are then created in a way that they fit with the broad strokes of the s...

Re: Criticism for [WIP] classical piece in Finale

TBH, at the moment it's really too short to make a proper judgement on it, since I'm not really hearing a full melody from it. But I'll try anyway. 1. It sounds okay to me, possibly it could do with actually being a little slower. 2. Nothing sounded out of place to me. 3. No. It just sort of trails ...

Re: Religion... Yay or nay?

I classify agnostics as atheists - either you believe in God or you don't, but don't say you "might believe" because that's the same as not believing in God. I don't think there's anything wrong with being an atheist, but saying there is such a thing as a strong or weak atheist is ridiculous. It so...

Re: installed vs play online.

With downloads, you need active internet connection to install the game, each time... for those with slow internet connection, this can kill you... mentally and possibly financially too. No you don't. That would be incredibly redundant. You download it once, then save it to a disk or memory stick, ...

Re: installed vs play online.

Physical Disk > Download >>>>>>>>> online I loathe needing to be online to play a game. For many reasons. Off the top of my head: 1. I live in the countryside, so my internet connection is awful. I'd much rather wait an extra few minutes downloading, than have to deal with lag. 2. If I'm somewhere w...

There's one thing to be said for the threads made by people asking how to do things, they at least have more purpose than this thread.

Re: How many tracks...?

I'm making a KN which is supposed to be 30 min long, but I feel like I'm going overboard with the number of tracks (around ten). The thing is, most scenes have distinct flavors, and even the ones with similar feelings have differences in atmosphere. Help anyone? There's always the option of creatin...
