Re: using emotions as dialogue choices?

While this certainly is an interesting idea, you must think of the technical implications of such approach. Unless you are very careful at maintaining the narrative threads, you will have them multiplying exponentially with every dialogue choice. In other words, with n basic emotions and m choices i...

Re: Romance mods for Bioware games - what would you recommend?

Now that it's getting back to me and I did a search, I'd probably try out Imoen's and Valen. I think Imoen's was one of the popular and stable mods although I could be wrong but that's something that I vaguely recall constantly being mentioned. Yay imouto incest. ^^; I guess some people are into th...

Re: Romance mods for Bioware games - what would you recommend?

Have you tried Female!PC/Aerie or Viconia? ;) You don't need a mod for that, a simple gender flip in the character editor after initiating the romance line is enough. :) But you end up having a baby with Aerie... Yes, you can get Aerie pregnant in a lesbian relationship. :D Isn't there some item th...

Re: Too Much Worldbuilding?

As Tolkien wrote in an essay (can't remember the title), it's easy to come up with a green sun, but it's much harder to design a world where it looks appropriate. ^^

Re: Too Much Worldbuilding?

That being said - he was a well-to-do British professor with a LOT of time on his hands. Don't forget that he was also a WW1 veteran, and his sons fought in the WW2, so when he wrote about war, he knew just what exactly he was writing about. And it shows. Pulling from the world of VNs, I'm reminded...

Re: Too Much Worldbuilding?

I plead guilty of spending too much time on world-building rather than actually writing stories. :D IMO how much world building is required depends largely on the genre. If you are doing an RPG, you'll need a whole lot of it, if it's a linear adventure, you only need what your character directly see...

Re: Writing You vs I

I guess a game from the second-person view would be similar to Myst and all its reincarnations. Also, there's been a game marketed explicitely as a second-person narrative recently, Experience 112, and I hear it's quite good. You might wanna take a look at those for some inspiration... Also, most pe...

Re: How do you overcome speech fear...

I actually think picturing the audiance nacked IS a good idea - and if your nervous and they are old and ugly it's an even better idea... the point is not to imagine some hot babes as that would make you just even more nervous, right? The point is that under their suits they really ARE nacked and p...

Re: What's more important? Plot, or characters?

If you're aiming for originality, the easiest thing to look at the combination of plot and character. Every plot and every character has already been done before, but not every character has been placed in every plot. Try writing a rags-to-riches story about a vampire, a romantic comedy about two m...

Re: What's more important? Plot, or characters?

So the only way to *avoid* all that crack-slash-epileptic-tree-flamewar stuff is to write poorly? :O Or not to write at all. ^^ Good stories always attract fandoms and you know what the fandom's favorite pasttimes are. ;) My universes and their inhabitants want love AND respect... </3 Oh yeah, and ...

Re: How do you change the name of a project?

Try closing Ren'Py, opening your Ren'Py projects folder, and renaming the subfolder that contains the project you want to rename. It worked for me. ^^

Re: What's more important? Plot, or characters?

b) if you invest a lot of effort into both, you'll produce a lot of flame wars by confused readers who'd try to figure out what you wanted to say all while shipping and slashing your characters in mind-breaking ways. %) And I thought hard work is good... Why couldn't we put lots of efforts in both ...

Re: Harddrive, may it rest in peace.

My condolences... Fortunately, none of my hard drives ever malfunctioned. *knocks on wood* But I know how you feel. Last year, I have experienced a major HDD overheating problem and it wouldn't even read the boot sector, so I killed a lot of nerve cells imagining all the work I've lost on that drive...
