Re: People refusing to take advice (was: I need help!)

Meh, if posting motivational youtubes, prefer this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TsaI4FNsKhM or this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NScs_qX2Okk Just cause people raised in experience doesn't mean experience is always optimum way. Culture > experience but there aren't many instances of it especia...

Re: Time Management

"Non-soft" deadline templates that don't need very good idea of how long it takes (in case that's what poster wants) P.S. Failed to keep a deadline when making VN so not saying these work. Just helping make thread rolling. How much time do you have today? Forget web service but basically there's a b...

Re: Explicit path choice

-Add *NEW to side choice menu.
-Remove words NEW and just keep * after route completed.

Optional: Corresponding sfx to differentiate when new choice is revealed.

Re: I need help!

Isn't calling people with questions "noobs" and "trolls" counter-productive? Are you trying to make people not want to ask questions? Not sure if post was a reply to mine so replying...but no, don't think so. Seen enough to be sure. Firmly for decorum but troublesome when suddenly common net lingo ...

Re: I need help!

That's not the issue. I've read a number of posts on here with 10 or 15 people replying basically the same thing and said "help requester" ignores them and keeps asking the same thing. My favorite reply from them is "I want it to be more professional looking" or "I don't want to take the time to le...

Re: How do you make long story more concise?

Story is written down but too controversial to show yet. (controversial as in crap) Sorry can't pm because of that. Wanted to stick to script but sadly it's inevitable. Already had to modify several script events because art is being limited by story. Thank you for offer though. Will just stick with...

Re: How do you make long story more concise?

Yes, difficult. I don't know if I can answer on my own. Certain answers don't come easy when you don't wield RenPy and it wields you. (Though just as slave to image editor cause of ignorance.) Plot is frankenplot, summary in six sentences or less is: One makes decision. That decision will kill anoth...

Re: How do you make long story more concise?

But now you're having issues with revisions because your programming skills aren't up to par. Ehh...??? No. That's only for FSN style. So, before anyone here can really help you, what is/are your issue(s) exactly? Still same. If you can't identify what your issues are aside from a broad categorical...

Re: Feed back for a idea and concept. East vs West

For the reason why Japan did it and who did it (should have included it in the first post) was the Ikko-ikki movement http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ikk%C5%8D-ikki. A historical movement by peasants to rid Japan of its lords and Daimyos and was backed by a particular militant Buddhist monk group who ...

Re: How do you make long story more concise?

Sooo~ Going back to the original topic summarized in one line: How do you make a long story more "concise"? -Identify "what" your story "is". -Revise everything else. Here you go~. Story is frankenplot. As in story with no story. (Yes, this is identification not confusion about what story is.) Can'...

Re: Feed back for a idea and concept. East vs West

P.S. Not history buff. Not from Japan. Just quickie feedback. Elephant out of the room first. Ambitious project but lacking artists esp. for this type of story? Very dangerous. Biggest plot hole of all. The biggest plot hole I see right now is trying to convince you that Japan has become a nation th...

Re: How do you make long story more concise?

Did . . . you just try to tell us that the definition of concise is wrong because you don't think it's defined that way? Nope. Go to google, type in concise, look at the synonyms. Or, if you're lazy, just click this link . Please don't argue about facts, it's distracting and trollish. I googled ety...

Re: How do you make long story more concise?

Just so you know, a common definition of concise is "short and to the point" so it actually does mean short, it's just that it's not all it means. Problem is not common definition. Problem is society change. Once people like to read, then they got TV, then they like to read again, then they got Twi...

Re: Sims Screenshots Traced For Backgrounds?

I'd suggest that this is the sort of thing you should do - and then not talk about. I'll uses as an example a case from music. In 2002, Mike Batt, a composer, decided to include a track consisting of 1 minute of silence on an album. As a joke, he credited John Cage, composer of 4'33", a "musical" w...
