Audio plays even when in-game settings are muted(SOLVED)

Re: Brilliant Shadows [Fantasy][Adventure][Drama][Romance]

I saw it on Steam and because it was pretty cheap, I bought it. I'm about 15 minutes in the game and my impressions so far: - The writing is alright! The story is understandable, I can see some pretty prose here and there, and overall I like it. - The music is alright too. - The art is nice. Backgr...

Re: Art Dumpage! Show your art ^^

This is my first poster with so many characters in it. It took quite awhile but I'm happy with how it turned out in the end. Totally going to make posters for all of my games now. Good exercise!

Changing game width/height with in game button?

I am considering trying to combine two short visual novels into one game with title headings: Chapter 1, Chapter 2. The idea is that Chapter 1 leads you to a game that is 800 x 600 resolution, and that Chapter 2 leads you to a game that is 768 x 1366. I tried an if statement but the game didn't like...

Embers of Magic - Adventure, Fantasy

A short, kinetic novel that was started originally for a game jam. I've been using it primarily as an outlet for having fun with art as I've been super busy with work lately. It's an exploration of the world that me and my studio have been working in for our main project, Brilliant Shadows. It's rat...

Re: 30 Second AutoReload Times While Coding[CLOSED]

After discovering that my partner could open the same game in around 4 seconds, I went and deleted and reinstalled Ren'Py and now it opens and refreshes the game in just a few seconds. Mystery problem solved!

Re: 30 Second AutoReload Times While Coding

You can look at log.txt to see what's taking the time. It usually isn't this slow. Is this bit the total load time?

30 Second AutoReload Times While Coding[CLOSED]

As my game has been getting larger the reload time for it has been increasing as well. It takes about 20-30 seconds to open from Ren'Py Launcher and about as long to reload the game when I'm coding it as it's set to autoreload whenever I save. It started doing this before my game was around 180mb an...

Re: Brilliant Shadows [Lesbian][Adventure][Romance] Kickstar

I am totally stoked to announce that Brilliant Shadows has been made a Staff Pick on kickstarter! Just a few days left before the campaign is over but it's added full voice acting through stretch goals. :3

Here are some side character concepts as well as a few CG teaser bits!
