Re: Let's Code: Every Thursday at 7pm CST!



Here is a post of last night's Let's Code, where we did planning and brainstorming for KamiDev, our long-term group project RPG. Anyone who wants to contribute is welcome!

Re: Background Artist: anime, cartoon styles

I've worked with Talburt before (hi again!) on a project of mine that's stalled for unrelated reasons. I was impressed not only by the quality of work, but also by the speed at which it was produced, and the excellent communication. Coupled with the reasonable prices, I can definitely recommend comi...

Re: Hire a programmer, or learn to code?

Hey, if you don't have money to pay a programmer, I'd recommend trying to learn yourself. It's easier to learn Ren'Py than most programming languages, especially if the mechanics you want are pretty simple. I have a youtube channel that has many free tutorials for programming in Ren'Py and you can f...

Re: Let's Code: Every Thursday at 7pm CST!

I don't think that I'd qualify as an advanced user of Ren'Py. I bring some previous coding experience to the table, but at this point, I'm not sure whether that is a benefit or a liability! I'm new to Python and Ren'Py in particular. I spent an hour last night experimenting with a dialogue trick in...

Re: Let's Code: Every Thursday at 7pm CST!

Yeah, I'm usually the same way, but for beginners it seems like they overwhelmingly prefer video tutorials, so that's what I'm doing mostly. After all, more advanced users don't really need my help as much.

And okay, thanks for the feedback. I'm glad I'm onto a good idea.

Re: Let's Code: Every Thursday at 7pm CST!

Hey Donmai, thanks for your help. I actually asked Tom about where to put this thread and he said Creator's Corner, so. *shrugs* I will definitely ask again though to see if he wants it moved. The youtube tag is a good idea though, I'll definitely do that! Also, guys, I do have something to discuss ...

Here is the link to the video for last night's Let's Code. Ideas for next week include Screens, but I'd be open to other topic suggestions.

Re: Trouble with Jump() action. Need help!

You should be able to just do Hide("story_list") instead of having to hide the home screen too. That way you can still see the home menu, just not the story list menu until you click on it again.

Re: Trouble with Jump() action. Need help!

Doing jump doesn't hide the screen. You will need to do that explicitly, either with the Hide action before your Jump, or within the labels themselves.

Re: Fast and Friendly Codesmith: Paid

Thanks Ertal! *excruciatingly late*

I've majorly overhauled my pricing system because it seems like a lot of people prefer quote-based rather than hourly rates. Keep in mind that these are only estimation numbers though, and that they are negotiable.
