Re: Randomizing image

You're looking to produce a random permutation of images from a list.

Theres a permutation function in the itertools python package that may be of interest to you.

Your concerns are completely founded, and also you're late to the show.

Re: Word counts; I need explanations please....

I don't know what the convention around here is, but the length of time it takes to read through a VN is based primarily on the script. The code for the menu's and labels and all that other jazz should effectively be invisible to the reader and do not factor heavily into game length, unless it is co...

It's christmas time, so for my amusement, draw me a girl in a santa themed miniskirt playing a ukelele, while riding a unicycle.

Re: Making VN Trailers

You lost me at "the sites". Those words need some clarification. It is as if you suddenly injected the word "elephant" into your montage without any explanation. It seems you have all the basics down though.

Re: What do you think about "courage" meters?

You need a feedback loop to let the player know whats up. Outright telling them their courage score would break immersion, so what some games do is they trigger certain minievents or give you some item that effectively tells them their progress. For example, on day 10 the protagonist achieves courag...

Re: Get that thing off your chest... Now...

I liked to think I was decent at writing. No matter what I write these days, though, I inevitably throw it out before I even get halfway where I want to be. It feels like I have no sense for it at all or something. It's not like it's objectively worse than what I wrote before, I think, but all the ...

Re: No Longer Interested In Renpy

Are you trying to plug your own framework? You should do that in a separate thread that explains all its technical merits and features rather than in a bridge burning post about how you'll no longer need Ren'py.

Re: Bisexuality in VNs

Is an explicit warning really necessary? If you're playing a girl protagonist and you select choices that pursue an obviously female character (no traps), then what did you think was going to happen? As a gamer, I can see people trying it just to see what happens. If they subsequently get disturbed ...

Re: Fan Expression Frustration

Doodle. Start small. The "right" idea will practically never come, and when it does, you won't have the time/money/skills to make it happen. This is not an insult to you personally, I am merely pointing out that if you won't settle for just any old idea, then the ideas you do consider good enough wi...
