Re: Chasing the Stars [BxB] [DEMO available]

Glad you posted an update -- would have missed this otherwise.

Re: The Cold Case of Noella Bejerot DevBlog [Mystery][Comedy]

Oh, this looks really cute. Also, I really like mystery-based VNs. Your start screen (assuming the image on your blog is the start screen), looks nice. I might lighten the text that isn't meant to be clickable slightly, just to make the buttons even more obvious, but it seems like it'd match the the...

Re: ✨【Love Net】✨ » A (Dark) Web Browser Romance

I don't know how I missed this thread before, but that GUI and those sprites are gorgeous. ◼ What do you think of our approach to handle some very tough topics? I really like the theme... web browsers as people seems promising, and I like VNs that don't shy away from tough subjects. ◼ What are you e...

Re: Yearning: A Gay Story [BxB][Slice of Life][18+][Demo]

I wanted to post an update now that some of the game assets are underway, just so you can start to get an idea of what the final game will look like. I'm hoping to have the first of the finished sprites by this weekend, which hopefully means that a new build with the first real sprite will be out by...

Why not use "screens" layer? It's the same one Notify() use, I think
For some reason, that didn't occur to me at all. But yes, that works great.

Thank you!

Re: Auto-dismissed screen on a new layer

It also doesn't work to use ui.timer with renpy.hide_screen, even though calling renpy.hide_screen from the same method does work: This doesn't do anything: def hide_notice(): renpy.hide_screen("mynotice", layer="popupnotice") def execute_notice(): renpy.show_screen("mynotice", _layer="popupnotice",...

Auto-dismissed screen on a new layer [Resolved]

I want to be able to show a notification to the user that will stick around for a few seconds and then dismiss itself. If I show it on the overlay layer, it works, except that subsequent interactions like character dialogue dismiss it prematurely. I'm trying instead to stick it on a new layer, but t...

Re: Yearning: A Gay Story [BxB][Slice of Life][18+]

Sorry for the bump, but just wanted to note that I've renamed the game after a few comments suggesting that the previous name was selling the game short, in case anyone sees this topic and is confused. (The new name is maybe a little awkward, but I really liked the acronym, so I tried to backform a ...

Re: Yet Another Gay Dating Sim [BxB][Slice of Life][18+]

This is all extremely useful; thank you! Let me respond to some specific points. my first impression of YAGS was that it was a bit too similar to it - Jake sounds so much like Brad description-wise, and both the feel and style of writing was really similar. This became less and less prevalent as I c...
