Re: Blink/talking animations, how to put a character togethe

You don't actually need to cut it in any way, but the reason you might want to is for optimisation purposes. (Having tons of full images might end up taking a lot of unnecessary memory. ) Then animating is very simple: image mikuBlink = Animation("blink1.png", 2.5, "blink2.png", 0.1, "blink1.png",2....

Re: The possibility of including codes at the end of a chapt

That's entirely possible. I guess the simplest way to do this is display the code at the end of the chapter and then at the beginning of the next one, use Text Input and prompt the player to enter the code. Then you can use if statements to determine if the code was correct or not. (You might want t...

Re: Showing two screens at the same time?

Just another suggestion but what about using ui.interact? That way you can show as many screens as you want and this will prevent the player from being able to simply click and skip the screens. Something like this: label start: show screen weekday_morning show screen open_information python: ui.int...

Re: Polaroid picture

Aaaages ago I asked a similar question and this is the thread with the answers I received back then: http://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=11813 But that's back from 2011, there might be better ways of doing things like that now. I never got around to coding something like this myself...

Re: Dear Mariko [Short Eerie Horror, Romance]

I just finished playing through this! It was quite nice. I got the normal ending first and wasn't sure how to even trigger the other endings but I somehow managed to do it after some going back and forth. However, I think I missed the point? Even after getting the true ending, I was a bit confused ...

Re: Point and Click Adventure Coding Questions + Help

I'm glad it worked! Hm, there's several ways you could do that. For example you could have a variable that serves like a counter and you add +1 to it every time the player looks at something and when it reacher 3, use an if statement to trigger an event. However, this could be a problem if the playe...

Re: Point and Click Adventure Coding Questions + Help

Oh, I can guess what the problem is! auto "journal_%s.png" - this bit. Let me explain it to you. This is a function that automatically, as its name suggests, creates an 'idle' and 'hover' state for your imagebutton. Let's say your idle is just the basic image but you want the hover to have a glow ar...

There's a lot of discussions on the topic. The simplest way to do a simple point and click would be with imagemaps. http://www.renpy.org/doc/html/screens.html#imagemap-statements Here's another topic that talks about similar things: http://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=31949 Screen l...

Re: How much should I pay?

Medium-large sized 3D game? It's probably going to cost a fortune. It doesn't have to, but I think it should. I follow a lot of indie developers, veteran coders, spending years making a single small game. And I'm not saying that as a criticism, I think it's absolutely reasonable. Because coding isn...
