Preferences Screen Not Affecting the Volume of Custom Channels

I created two custom music channels for my project so that I could have one song fade out while another one is already starting and things like that. I defined them like this: init python: renpy.music.register_channel("music1", loop=True) renpy.music.register_channel("music2", loop=True) They work f...

Re: Simple Rain Effect

renpy v7.1.0 pls help, it wont run :( error: couldnt find rain.jpg while lightning works If it's saying it can't find the file, then you're probably calling the file by the wrong name or putting it in the wrong place. The example says "rain.png", so if your code says "rain.jpg" that might be the is...

Re: Can I make just one "hotspot" to do it?

If you want to have the TV sound and background music playing at once, and to be able to stop one but not the other, you just need to make sure they're on different channels. The easiest way to do that would be to have the background music on the "music" channel and the TV sound on the "sound" chann...

Question About "add FileScreenshot"

I'm wondering about my options for modifying the way RenPy shows a small screenshot of the point where you saved on the save/load menu. The GUI I'm using right now isn't really the ideal size I guess - when I look at the save/load menu it looks like the screenshots are a little squished. Here's what...

Is it possible to show other images on top of an imagemap?

In my current project, I want some separate images to show up on top of an imagemap. (The reason I don't just save the whole background with those images included is that your actions during the point-and-click section with the imagemap can eventually make them disappear.) However, I can't figure ou...

Re: Question about crowdfunding

Hi Red! I'm not sure about the question of whether they'd be considered commercial, but I've seen other VNs get successfully funded while planning to release the final product for free. Lake of Voices is a recent (and really good) one, and I know I've seen a few others as well. So while it might be ...

Re: Starlight and The Lost Prince [Animated VN/Point-and-click] [GxB] [Romance/Sci-fi]

This looks so cute! I love the art style so far, and I'm really interested to see how the animations turn out. For some more general music suggestions, this thread that lists and translates a bunch of Japanese creative commons music sites has been really helpful to me, and there are plenty of other ...

Our demihumans are so very excited to meet you~~ (mostly)
Probably all of them except Geist, who hasn't been excited about anything for decades.

I had a lot of fun writing my part of the demo, so I hope everyone enjoys it. :D

Re: I'm starting a VN alone: How should I go about this?

What might be helpful is writing your first draft of the story without worrying about whether the dialogue is natural or not. If you want a character to explain a certain facet of the world or backstory, just write them saying that directly - it's a draft anyway. Then when you have a full draft, you...

Re: Lake of Voices [Free][Horror, Tragedy, Dark Fantasy][GxB/G]

I just finished reading this one and I really enjoyed it! It has such a spooky and unique concept. My favourite character was definitely The Guide - he was so grumpy and mysterious. Who did the art for it? It all looked great, especially all the dark, foggy backgrounds.

Re: Different route after a game crash or ending a route?

I'm not entirely sure if I interpreted what you're saying correctly, but it sounds to me like you just need a persistent variable and an if/else statement. For instance, let's say that once you've done some character named Mary's route, that unlocks some character named Alice's route, and there's al...

Re: Problem Editing Imagemap Quick Menu

If I don't remember this completely wrong, the hotspots x and y positions are counted from the imagemap's (0,0)-point (top-left corner). I would suspect that when you changed the ground image for the imagemap, and changed the map's position, you got the positions of the hotspots wrong. Wow, I can't...

Problem Editing Imagemap Quick Menu

I'm using a premade creative commons GUI ( CC GUI 1 by Namastaii ) in my project, but I wanted to make some changes to it. Specifically, my issue came when I tried to add buttons for skip, log, and quit to the quick menu. I made new ground and hover images that resembled the old ones but with the ne...
