Re: Belle - Visual novel maker

Hi,

I tested in Windows 7 64-bit but i couldn't reproduce those problems with the export. Can you give me more details of the steps you made? What error does it give you when you try to export? Can you save the project?

Thanks.

Re: Belle - Visual novel maker

I've been working with a short demo project I created in a previous release of Belle. Using Belle 0.5, I can't export to a new folder (the folder name appears in black lettering inside belle, but doesn't appear when I look for it with Windows explorer (Windows 7, 64 bit). Also, the stop sound funct...

Re: Belle - Visual novel maker

Hi,

Just made a new release (0.4.1a). Nothing big, some new features but mostly small improvements and fixes.
You can download from the usual place, here: http://www.nongnu.org/belle/download.html. Right now there's only executable for Windows, but i'll add OS X tonight.

Re: Hurricane Paisley VN on Kickstarter

Hey, I'm the developer of Belle and just found out this topic and wanted to clear some misconceptions. Like Mad_Scientist pointed out, although Belle and Novelty share a similar layout, they have pratically nothing else in common. As far as i know, Novelty uses DirectX for everything, while Belle us...

Re: Belle - Visual novel maker

I downloaded the version that was on the web site as soon as I read your post that said, "It's updated. I made sure all common image formats are working. Let me know of anything else, thanks." I looked in the contents of the folder, and the two files you mentioned were NOT there. I downloaded the z...

Re: Belle - Visual novel maker

Hey again, I'm using Windows 7, 64 bit. Background images still do not appear in the "Scene View' of the Editor. Are you sure you downloaded the updated version? The updated version has two new files, QtSvg4.dll and QtXml4.dll, in the same directory where belle.exe is. Can you check? I noticed that ...

Re: Belle - Visual novel maker

Actually I don't consider it a waste of my time, since you also encountered the problem, and are working on fixing it. I'll try it out when you post the update. This time I'll test it using a simple variable, one menu, two branches, background music, and possibly an animated GIF file, since you sai...

Re: Belle - Visual novel maker

It happens with a different jpg image, too. What I'm saying is that I made a couple of slide, then I hit Novel Run to see how the project looks. I then moved a text box on an existing slide. Next I hit Novel Run to see the changes, but the changes don't appear. Since I can't see the background imag...

Re: Belle - Visual novel maker

Thanks for the quick feedback. Yes the background image is supposed to show, it isn't? Probably it's the type of the image. I just tried a couple of different image formats and saw that SVG images are not being displayed on Windows. Is it SVG? About the demo, you're right, i haven't redone it. It's...

Re: Belle - Visual novel maker

Is the background image supposed to show in the "Scene View" of the editor? I can't get mine to appear there. It does seem to show when I click Novel on the command line and click on Run in the drop down menu. I successfully ran the demo (with the gnu) on-line, so I decided to download it and play ...

Re: Belle - Visual novel maker

Hi, After a really long delay i'm here to announce the 0.4 alpha release.

Re: Visuals-based VN engines

Hi, I just want to give my 2 cents about this debate of text-based vs graphical-based engines. Visual novels and other similar games are heavy on writting (dialogues), so a text-based engine would be more suited for these tasks. However visual novels are also visual (like the name implies) and to ma...

Re: Belle - Visual novel maker

Hey, Just to let you know i'm still developing Belle and i started working on it more since the beginning of the year. Many things had to be implemented before i could go to savegames and in-game menus, which was and is the main feature of 0.4 release, and that's one of the reasons why it's taking m...
