Re: Belle - Visual novel maker

Sure, why not? :) However it won't be available in next release, though. Maybe i can schedule it for 0.5 alpha. :)

Re: Belle - Visual novel maker

Hi fleet, Sorry for the delay in the release. It's going forward, just slower than i expected. I've redone the engine a bit so in the future it supports things like custom scripts and rollback feature like Ren'Py has. I've also already added a couple of new features to the editor, like save (in addi...

Re: Belle - Visual novel maker

It's already implemented but it will only be available in the next version (0.4). I hope to add some new effects aswell in the next version. Are you interested in any effects in particular?
Thanks for the feedback.

Re: Belle - Visual novel maker

Hello,
I haven't done that yet, but even if i did, it would be only available in the project's repository. So those changes (and more) will have to be in the next version (0.4). :)

Thanks for your interest.

Re: Belle - Visual novel maker

Hi again, I will have to look into that "sample Novel Interface", but i think i know what you mean. The way i was thinking was a configuration menu that appeared when you pressed Esc, for example, and in that menu the player could save the game. This would make the life easier for the users making t...

Re: Belle - Visual novel maker

Hi fleet, Yes, it should work the same way in all Firefoxes (Windows, Mac and Linux). What do you mean by "stand alone mode"? The editor? :) It isn't possbile to save the game yet, either offline or online. Yes, i agree, it's a essential feature, that's why i'm planning to add it in the next version...

Re: Belle - Visual novel maker

I think i know what's happening. Many browsers restrict their functionality when loading HTML pages with the "file:///" protocol. Firefox is one of the few that imposes less restrictions and thus enables the game to run. I've already "fixed" this situation in 0.3, but you have to run the game throug...

Re: Belle - Visual novel maker

Hey, Finally i'm releasing the 0.3 alpha, with support for animated images (e.g. gifs) and support for older browsers like Internet Explorer 7 and 8 (audio is still not supported in these browsers, though). Not only that but also many improvements and bug fixes. Downloads are available here . I have...

Re: VN Engine for the Web

Hey,

I'm also developing a web engine for visual novels, you might want to try it out. It's still in alpha stage, so probably isn't reliable for production yet.
Anyway you can check this thread for more information. :)

Re: Belle - Visual novel maker

By the nature of this software (being open source) you have more guarantees that it will continue even if i'm not developing it anymore. However this issue doesn't seem an issue to me at all, because it can happen to any software at any time, even to Ren'Py. Look for example at Novelty, it was being...

Re: Belle - Visual novel maker

If you have any questions or suggestions feel free to ask. On your site, you're obviously making it open source. Belle is free and open source software, both the editor and the engine are released under the GNU General Public License v3. This means you can modify this software and adapt it to your ...

Re: Belle - Visual novel maker

I'm targetting HTML5 because, in my opinion, is the best choice for a VN or similar games. Are you talking about adding support for Android and iOS in the editor? For now i have no plans in doing so, since Android and iOS are usually run in small devices, which are not good for editing. No, what I'...

Re: Belle - Visual novel maker

Animations like snow or rain shouldn't be very difficult to add i guess. You mentioned i needed code, what kind of code? Well I see it like this: when you want to add a custom sprite it's easy to import it, but it's different when you want to create a custom animated effect in your engine which isn...
