Re: Changing the Expression of a side image DynamicDisplayab

OK, this is actually simpler than I though, but involves using python, not Ren'Py. Unfortunately, we can't do what Asceai suggested because we are using a DynamicDisplayable, and im.FactorScale only works on images... But, what you can do is add the following function in your code (I put it right be...

Re: Tour de Paseban (Android version)

OK, I finished the whole game on my tablet and it worked just fine! Even the map, which normally you hover over to get pop-up text, worked if you dragged your finger around.

Glad it was so easy to test that for you. :-)

Re: Tour de Paseban (Android version)

OK, everything seems to work great so far! I just finished chapter 1. The only thing you might want to change is in the intro text, where it says "click to advance/auto," etc, maybe should be changed to "click or tap". I will let you know when I finish the whole thing, but so far it works just fine!...

Re: Tour de Paseban (Android version)

Downloading! I have Tour de Paseban in my play queue, but I'm more likely to play it on my tablet, so I'll give it a try! I also want to release my upcoming VN for android, so it's a good opportunity to get my feet wet. :-)

Re: What's your goal in life?

College? check! Husband? check! Kids? check! Soooo... now what? :-o

I want to raise my children to be good and happy, make our home a nice place to be, stay in love with my hubby, and MAKE COOL STUFF! (like the VN I'm working on, though I also do sewing, music, writing, etc). :-)

Re: Changing the Expression of a side image DynamicDisplayab

I think you should be able to use a ConditionSwitch , kind of like what I put in below. You'll need to have a variable called "pov_expr" that you update with the expression every time it changes. I don't have your images so I didn't test it, but I think this is the basic idea of what you want? def d...

Re: Visual Novels on Android OS?

I reviewed a few of the ones Near mentioned here: http://thepretentiousgamer.blogspot.com/2013/08/androids-best-visual-novels.html - they are all free and great quality. Time Labyrinth is another fun one. Also, two of my visual novels, Our Personal Space and WANTED: Dragon are available in the Googl...

Is Gone Home a Visual Novel?

I just played the indie game Gone Home , and it had a lot of things in common with a visual novel. Most of the story is told via reading documents and journals you find. But the exploration element also makes it quite different from a visual novel, as it uses the space and unknown-ness of the mansio...

Re: Monster Uses CPU 2 [Drama, Slice of Life, Fantasy]

Cute, fun Halloween project! I clicked on Ender first, too, as a fan of the books... I liked all the different conversations - they felt very true to different personalities and styles of online communication, and portrayed well the strengths and weaknesses of online friendships. I like the general ...

Re: Marriage Contract [Romance/Psychological]

Interesting piece about marriage and the choice of love... :-) I guess I'm a realist; I liked the "New Life" ending.

I'm always interested in VNs about marriage, since that's what my current project is about, too. Thanks for sharing!

Re: To all Otome Fans: Would you date this Character?

Both would work fine in an otome VN. The first one looks more angsty and intense and serious; the second looks like he could have a lighter side. I like the armor style on the first, but I'm more likely to go for the personality the second seems to have (I can't stand too much angst!). :-D

Re: ''Gameplay'' in Visual Novels

Yeah, it all depends on what kind of VN/game you are making. If it's a horror VN, then having the player explore a creepy old mansion can create more suspense than just clicking through text. If your game is partly about improving the MC and being good at stuff, then having stats makes sense. If you...
