If you decide to go with this method, you MUST automate it. A backup not performed does not help anyone. This really made me think... my usual backup method is "we're going away for a couple of days? Let me stuff everything I care about onto my flash drive real quick." So today I put together a rud...

Hehehehe, your sig cracks me up. I admit it, I'm not sure what you mean by CG, OC, or PS, but for graphic editing, have you tried Gimp? It's a bit like Photoshop but free. I've used .png and .jpg graphics with Ren'py, no problem. And retina burning is in the eye of the beholder... uh... that made no...

I just checked Subversion out -- pretty neat, it looks like CVS without the invisible shield of impenetrable techno-jargon. There's a pretty easy to understand review/basic use thing on Subversion/Tortoise here . Just in case anyone else was a tiny bit intimidated or couldn't figure out where to sta...

The results should be playable in an unmodified Ren'Py, and the sound seems reasonable even at qualities of 0 and below. (DISCLAIMER: I am tone deaf.) When you say "non-vocal ogg", does that mean that you're considering vocal oggs? If so, you may want to compress them with speex instead of vorbis. ...

D'oh, that was me.

I wondered why it wanted me to enter a confirmation code... I don't post much on forums, can you tell? :D

I *love* lint -- there's something so satisfying about seeing how much is done... sort of like wordcount on a short story (I put the latest lint run in my sig :)). Also, I downloaded the newest Ren'Py today. I will have to go over it in the morning when my brain is working again, though, to make sur...

Character Artist Wanted for Otherwise Completed Game

Hi! This is completely out of the blue, but I just finished creating a game in Ren'py. I have no character art (can't draw worth beans) but other than that, it's ready to be released (music, shopped backgrounds, tested, etc.). So, I was wondering if anyone might like to do the character art? There a...
