Re: Hiring musician Advice please

-If you hire a musician for a music tracks (BGM) and then later i want to sell the ost of the visual novel, would i have to pay the musicians fee aside of what i payed for creating those custom tracks? Depends on the agreement you made. Some might want to have royalty split (not reccomended), other...

Re: Is my character art good enough? (please critique)

Looks really nice! I can't even make my chibis that good lmao. The shading on the hair looks totally superb. The shading on the skin can look sharper, because it's really small. Depending on the type of chibi, you might want to make the neck look smaller so that it's more proportional to the body i...

I tried some cute chibi with different lineart and coloring/shading style. I know it's not perfect, but any feedback will be appreciated!

Re: About Atom editor and Ren'Py

I was also using Atom before it was officially announced to be included in RenPy. What I love about it, is that modern, highly customizable interface. For example, I installed minimap plugin to easier navigate through scripts (reccomended!). And what's the best feature, is memory where I left the fi...

Re: Any interest in creating visual novels using Unreal 4?

I've been using Unreal Engine for a veeery long time, I even tried to make my own VN system when I was working on my first game, and came with few conclusions. 1) It's way too overkill for such simple game (mechanics wise). Basic UE4 has pretty high requirements to run, even without art maxed out. A...

Re: How long should be a game at minimum?

I'd say the length should be as much as it should be. There's no point to artificially expand it. For example, my game on Steam takes roughly and hour, maybe even less if you're fast reader, for one playthrough, but has replayability. Even though you can finish it very fast, under the refund limit, ...

Re: How do you credit people in your VN?

It also depends on kind of license and if something is written about it. Some licenses do allow to not credit at all (some from CC series)! Or, some sources allow to make credit list on website, and link it in game. For example: Something from WEBSITE.com Full list available here - [link] Or just: F...

It's been some time, I don't have as much time as I'd like to practice drawing, but here's something I drew recently I'm happy with :D

Fullbody sprite practice. I tried sketch with soft/cel-shading.

Re: How do you reverse languages

Well, depending on length of your game, you can do it by hand...
Just old style, copy-paste, so that default language is translated English and your original French copied to generated translation files.

I tried to test Launcher "Reverse translations" on test project but it didn't seem to work.

Re: My "Game" don't work please help File "game/script-example.rpy", line 341: indentation mismatch.

Indentation is about spaces/tabulator, you can take a look at documentation here - https://www.renpy.org/doc/html/language_basics.html#indentation-and-blocks Also, I think it's better to put python before any labels if it's needed. There is also random build in renpy. The difference is that the buil...

Re: What is the Most important Skill as a VN Team Lead

Creating any game is a project. Regardless if it's commercial or free, we should treat it as business. And if we're talking about projects and business, we have to talk about management. As I already released successfully one commercial project ( Jake's Love Story ) and I'm Business Management stude...

Re: renpy claiming name is not defined

Instead of $ symbol, which is used to change variable use define or default (define for something static, default for variables), so: default salon1_done = False default bar1_done = False default thebeach1_done = False default cafe1_done = False default park1_done = False default walk1_done = False ...
