Re: A userscript for lsf

I don't know. I've seen some crazy scripts out there. Like RES just for example: http://redditenhancementsuite.com/features.html Never saw these available on default Reddit: User Tagger Adds a great deal of customization around users - tagging them, ignoring them, and more. Custom Dashboard Keeping ...

Anything. LSF, Ren Ai database, user protest. Just banned.

Has there ever been a banned OELVN?

If so, for what reasons?

Re: A userscript for lsf

I don't see why that would matter as userscripts can easily be turned off. Can't help cause I don't know how to make one but good luck. Hopefully your userscript evolves into a userstyle. Lots of gs script seem to be dead but stylish seems to be around and still kicking. Even saw one mega-userstyle ...

Re: How to trim story/script?

Overall intention is important. Unfortunately have problem doing this too but here are basic themes that I know: Slice of Life: Slice means slice. Make pizza instead of cupcakes. If each person is a piece of cake, smush and then see what's left behind and see what makes for good topping. Especially ...

Re: 'Why should I care?'

Finally (for this post), one tip: Be nasty to your protagonists. People like to root for the underdogs. ;) Akjosch says it really well. As I've heard it said before, you need to put your protagonist in a tree. Then put a vicious pack of wolves at the tree base. Then throw rocks at him. Then set the...

Re: Newbie Q: Possible to speed draw without knowledge of a

Tried that at first but messed up the lines. So bad at perspectives that knife looked like piece of paper. (Unless you meant actually taking picture from somewhere else.) Anyway knife is finished. Problem is it took too long for simple scene. Still have problem with more complicated scenes later on....

Re: Newbie Q: Possible to speed draw without knowledge of a

No time for practice. Deadline for Worst VN is Jul. 31. Plus art not really my thing. I try to learn it once but I just fell asleep until I am now old. True story: I once went into art seminar and everyone (including children) drew better than me. Even still life I was worst. Not even inspired peopl...

Re: 'Why should I care?'

"Why should I care" about a protagonist in a story? What makes a protagonist connect with the reader, and what makes him likeable? This is an issue I need advice for. How does a story make one care about the protagonist and engage them? Escapist character: Like Rambo = combo of rugged Capt. America...

Newbie Q: Possible to speed draw without knowledge of art?

Priority: urgent but minor Do not need workable drawing since Worst VN only needs bad drawing. (Criteria I received was worst 4 year old drawing). Problem: Absolutely horrible at art. Not just horrible, lazy. Not just lazy, ignorant. Took me several years just to understand what "layers" are and st...

Sorry, that was offensive sarcasm on my part. Didn't mean to imply literal dictionary. Just like commonly stated stuff and things like that you know? My point is that these things that you are pointing out as human elements are actually clues to the quality and quantity of work the person in questio...

Re: The most innocent-type of girl you can think of [survey]

Nope. See NWN mod. It's easy to say "if it's not me, then it's you" until scene so well done that you start suspecting the dog. Doesn't help when the dog is not only given text box but also possibility of being accused. ...but speaking only generally. I don't have idea of what your game is. Just say...

You don't really think when people are asking for elevator pitch that they aren't removing human interpretation right? It's called elevator pitch for a reason. You don't go into an elevator and talk with humans you want to know. But design is not even enough. Pitch means I don't want chatter. Impre...
