Re: Discouraging Lack of Art Skills

Hey Everybody, extreme newbie over here! [snip] Maybe it is my pride that is making me hesitate. But my question to you guys is, what is your advice to artists with realistically mediocre talent wanting to make a good VN? Thank you for any responses, they are all prematurely appreciated :D I want t...

Re: Doki Doki Literature Club! [BxG] Free Download

I gather that, but the issue I had was I was a bit lost since its been several months since I played. I wanted to go back and load one of my earlier saves to refresh on what was happening, but unfortunately... I also couldn't start a new game as it seems the option has been tweaked specifically so ...

Re: Doki Doki Literature Club! [BxG] Free Download

Just wanted to say I've come back to play this game again, loaded my save, played for around 15 minutes, realised the game deleted all of my saves and now I'm rather upset and considering deleting the game again. Why this made so many people like the game is beyond me. People like 4th Wall breaks, ...

Re: Predicting the sexual activity of VN characters

Yeah, it's pretty cool, but doesn't seem too useful. Like Mammon said, I've done several just as normal anime characters I've seen, and don't get precentages outsides of a 3-4% range, which just seems statistically insignificant. It also seems on experimentation that the options with the most impac...

Re: Predicting the sexual activity of VN characters

The percentages can go pretty high, but only tend to do so if you onlu answer a few questions. When you answer lots of them, any sexual quirks tend to get averaged out. So like if you just choose "brocon" for the personality section, you get +45% incest. Yeah, it's pretty cool, but doesn't seem too...

Re: Make font outline thickness the same across all screen resolutions?

You can set outlines size to absolute to stop them from scaling resulting in the same outline in all resolutions. Instead of writng just number for outline write absolute(number) outlines [(absolute(1), "#000", 0, 0)] I think the problem is that the outline already IS staying absolute. Meyaoi wants...

You know, I always feel a bit invisible being an EVN fan who didn't come into the genre from JVNs...nor EVNs that tried to be J I am hardly ever on vndb, finding my games either here on lemmasoft or through indie and art game reviews.

Re: Contrasting the Japanese and Western VN Fandoms

So apparently the secret to EVN success is - have a female protagonist who is a foreign transfer student to a school in Japan who lives in the dorms and is secretly a mischievous goddess (from Japanese mythology - a fox goddess for maximum VNDB points) that has lost her memories. Oh, and she is frie...

Re: Two Questions: MC's Thoughts & Cutting Away to Other Scenes?

Though I think a different text color would help differentiate between thought and spoken words. The text boxes while different are similar enough that the player may meld the two together. Most players are probably looking at the words and the foreground graphics than the frame of the text box. Th...

Re: Two Questions: MC's Thoughts & Cutting Away to Other Scenes?

I know I'm a little late to the party, but I thought I'd show how I handled this in one of my experiments. I use a different textbox when the player is speaking out loud versus thinking to themselves. Like so: https://i.imgur.com/HdvA4ti.jpg I define two different characters, one for the Player thin...

Re: Am I being too ambitious for a newbie?

I must say I'm a bit hurt that some of you guys assume that I'm not aware of how much art takes time, for someone who commissioned to artists on several occasions by the past. ;) Still, I appreciate you gave me a better idea how what goes on behind the scene! Don't take it as an insult. Most profes...

Re: "Non-commercial liscense"

Ad revenue is nothing to do with your game, unless it is part of the game, but even then, it is not enough to make the game a "commercial" game. Your game is commercial when you force players to pay a fee in order to download the game or download DLC. A donations button or "pay what you want" syste...

Re: Is the Forum Search laggy / borken for everyone?

On topic: It might actually make sense to archive posts older than say 2 years into a mirror database (or legacy sub-domain) that general searches do not target... With legacy gui and the advent of Ren'py 7.0 just here, thousands of old posts and threads just are not relevant any more. This is actu...

Re: How much time daily do you spend on your VN?

I've found that even if you do your best to calculate all things required for a project and the time they will take, and then double or triple that time estimate ... you will still be wrong. :( It always takes longer that you ever believed possible. Even big studios fall into this trap. You discover...
