I used InnoSetup for the TownHeat demo. I don't even touch the Windows registry though. I only copy all installation files to the Town Heat sub-directory located in the Program Files directory and add shortcuts to the start menu. It's really easy to use. It took me just a few minutes to understansd ...

OMG RT on diskettes! I'm not really sure that splitting the 16MB file into 4MB parts would help much. There are very good download manages (such as Download Express for instance) which allow you to stop and resume file download as many times as you like. Back in 2002/early 2003 when I had a 56K conn...

Many thanks for the hosting offers Sai and Trinity, but I recently tryed to send a 5MB attachment from my mailbox to a friend and it didn't work. Kept trying at least five times, but with no success. I think that in the meantime, the only option left for me is to set up an ftp server or even run a w...

Ummm.... Looks like I got what I paid for, LOL... Apparently they deleted my account without even sending me an e-mail. I have no idea why they did it though. I didn't violate any common rules. Anyway, I'll probably have to buy a web hosting package to avoid such situations in the future (I think I'...

Finally, today I had a closer look at River Trap. Which means, I completed a lot of different endings (didn't find all of them though) and was able to enter the bonus section (partially thanks to Sai spoiler :)). IMO the best ending I got was ending 8 (shopping ending with Shizuka). Very nice, altho...

Just had a look at it. Really great. I especially love the last screenshot. What a pity it's not going to be in English.

Good, another potential ren'ai VN creator. I'll also advise you to go for Ren'py. Why? It's simple. Ren'py has good documentation (didn't read it myself though :)), has it's own section at the Lemmasoft forums and is actively developed. I'm sure someone with good Ren'py knowledge will surely help yo...

Mikey>> LOL, perhaps :). Yes, I'd like to replace some backgrounds. Especially those in the city. I've already tryed some generic city renderers for Pov-Ray. It's not that bad, but it could be much better. What I really want to achieve here is to be able to render the same view at different times of...

Um well, bigger fan made ren'ai games take a lot of time... I can only say that the final version will be out somewhere in 2005. I don't want to force myself on this thing as it requires much patience (composing songs, drawing, writing scripts), besides I have another very important non-game related...

Since nobody wants to C&C on the last drawing submitted I'll put my 5c here :).
It's actually quite good Keota for anime-like characters. However her left hand and her left leg seem quite unnatural.

Thanks... I'll be honest here hehehe. It's not possible to make Mio your GF in this demo. However she may agree to go on a date and become a close friend. Besides there is a short romantic scene with her on the beach. I just thought it would be too early (after explaining in the script what she went...

Well, after all it looks like it's not impossible to get a happy ending on the first try. Congratulations to Mikey for catching Reiko :).

LOL, I prefer real GFs. Besides spending money on gifts for an aritficial girl that you can only see on your screen looks like a very stupid idea. But you never know, some people rich enough who don't know what to do with their money could actually go for it :).

Thanks again for all comments. Well, yes it's quite an achievement to get a happy ending in this game. Congrats Herzeleid, as you're the first one who made it. BTW Sai, a score of 85 with Reiko definitely qualifies for a happy ending. Only problem is to guess who appears on the beach the next day an...
