Re: Why don't we have VN of the Year Awards?

Instead of having nominations or listing every visual novel that was created during the year, individuals/groups could submit the game they wish to enter. That's how I've seen this sort of thing handled on other forums. Wait a sec. Why not just list off every game released in X year? That's kind of...

Re: How do you center the speaker's name?

Ok, I assume you're going to put the character's name on one fixed position (as opposed to have different name position for different characters). Just find this line in gui.rpy and edit the value to fit your needs: define gui.name_xpos = 240 xpos works. Just now, I tried who_xpos as well to check ...

Re: The Guard and His Post [SoL] [Comedy] [Fantasy][Nano17]

1) Would you read a short kinetic novel without any catchy or grandiose selling point? Absolutely. But in fairness, a story about a guard is catchy to me because I don't see it very often! 2) How do you feel about the art style? The artwork is cool. It reminds me of Marvel comics. :) 3) Is there an...

Re: How do you center the speaker's name?

You want to set the "who" position, but you don't even use character name in your character definition. How will you set it? :shock: Could you attach your actual script? I'm curious about how you code it. if you made any modification in screen.rpy or gui.rpy please include them too. define Monologu...

Re: How do you center the speaker's name?

Have you tried who_xalign=.5 ? I tried, but oddly enough it won't center the "who" text but will center the "what" text. I'm curious if I'm perhaps doing something wrong... Here's an example of what I have. define Monologue = Character (None, what_xalign=0.5, what_text_align=0.5, who_xalign=0.5) Ed...

How do you center the speaker's name?

I'm having a little trouble searching for examples. My dialogue is centered using what_text_align and what_xalign. Both are set to 0.5

But I can't figure out how to do this with the "who" text... If anyone can help me with this, I would be extremely grateful. :)

Re: "Blank slate" vs "Developed" dating sim protagonists

Dating sims are totally fine with blank slate characters because they often lack an overarching story. The primary game mechanic is stat raising, or dating, so it works well for that genre. But if there's any kind of story involved, I feel like the protagonist should have a personality. This would f...

Re: Ways to make a "slice of life" story interesting?

One form of scaled down conflict occurs quite naturally in conversations. In every conversation, each person has their own agenda to pursue, which is usually as innocent as following up a topic that's interesting to them. At each sentence or reply, there might be something new to latch onto, someth...

Re: Get that thing off your chest... Now...

@Zelan No problem! I appreciate your kindness as well. If we still lived nearby, I would try to work things out again, but I'm admittedly afraid. He liked visual novels, too. Lol @Ghost of Crux Hang in there, okay! You can always come and talk to us if you're feeling down again. I can empathize. :)

Re: Stalker&Yandere [Yandere][Romance?][NaNo17]

This is looking pretty awesome so far, guys. ;) I'm actually really excited to read this, because I like your distinctive writing style from P&Y. And you mentioned bass guitar. The age gap between Yandere-chan and Stalker-senpai is quite large, but it's not as if it's too abnormal nowadays. Everyone...

Re: Military Liaisons

Let me just say that I *love* military stories and this looks good for sure. The idea surrounding asteroid mining is quite realistic so to speak. I wonder how the "new frontier" would affect society as a whole. It seems like a reasonable idea to look without for resources, as that might avoid initia...

Re: So, what editor do you guys use?

If it had code folding I'd probably've stuck with it to. How do you guys live without it? I don't need code folding at the moment. It's better for me to see all the story text I've put forth at a glance rather than hiding bits, but that's a result of me constantly correcting writing mistakes and mo...

Re: So, what editor do you guys use?

Normally I would use Notepad++ for coding my other things, but when it comes to Ren'Py specifically I feel Editra is a little more comfortable.

1.) Despite the simple sounding story, is there anything that caught your attention? Yes. I am wondering how in the world you're going to weave horror into this thing. ^ ^; There's just the right touch of mystery shrouding the story to catch my interest. Looking forward to jump scares or whatever y...
