Re: The Madness [Psychological Horror / Puzzle]

We are close, I think! Finally made it past the starting area, its detour, and the next area (though we didn't solve any puzzles there?) and are in what seems to be the last area? We did have to cheat and look at the source code to figure out: What the painting of the woman represents, and how to ge...

Re: The Madness [Psychological Horror / Puzzle]

Hmmm, I got to the second area by trying the "rewind" button, too . . . is that really how you get there? Or can you get there another way? It seemed like we had done a lot of things in the first area, but I thought there would be one date entry for every astrological sign, but we only found 10 of t...

Re: Which way to display the Player character?

The story is written mostly in first-person present tense (with a little of the intro in first-person past tense). You do decide the character's name, attitude, profession, and lots of actions throughout the story, so it's not really a predefined character . . . but I don't really think of it as "th...

Which way to display the Player character?

Hey, VN aficionados! I have an interface question for all of you... I'm working on a VN ("Personal Space") where you play as a wife and the game is about you and your husband trying to survive on a space colony. The game is really about the relationship between the two of them and how it progresses ...

Re: How Long Is Long?

I definitely recommend having a demo to download so people can try before they buy. There are lots of kinds of VNs and people tend to prefer specific kinds (GxB, harem games, indie unique games, etc). Personally, I would only pay for a medium-to-long VN that was extremely high quality in text, art, ...

Wow, these look great! If you would like some more experience, our project could also use a UI designer... :-)

Yeah, it looks like the problem is in webbrowser or subprocess . . . I'll work on tracking it down.

Re: How To use Event function?

event() is a function from the Dating Sim Engine. Probably the best examples can be found in the Dating Sim Engine code itself. Once you download it, run the example game and then look at events.rpy in the game directory. It has examples for lots of different kinds of events. Does that help at all?

RAPT incorrect information in help screen

Running android.py -h says that one of the commands you can run is "install_sdk", when it is actually "installsdk". Small error, but they probably ought to match. :-)

Rapt Error Installing SDK

I'm trying to use RAPT to create an Android version of the game I'm working on, but I'm getting an error message when I try to run installsdk. It tests the JDK, unpacks ANT, and then it says: Opening http://developer.android.com/sdk/terms.html in a web browser. Traceback (most recent call last): Fil...

Re: Guestbook

Hi there! My sister and I are working on a visual novel about newlywed space colonists trying to maintain their relationship and their farm. The forums have been a great resource so far (thanks to PyTom for the emacs mode, BTW!). We've got the programming and writing going well, but we'll see about ...

My Review/Suggestions

Wow, an English dating-sim type game! Great! Now, first off, let me say that I'm a twenty-something married woman, so I'm probably not your target audience. But I had fun anyway, so that's a compliment to you. :-) There were just a few thoughts I had while playing that I thought you might like to he...
