Re: Dramatic cliches

Are there any storylines or aspects of drama that you consider too cliche ...? It's not the Plot people are tired of, it's reaching the same Ending over and over and over... Go ahead and write a cliche' story, just END it in a totally different way. THAT'S what makes something Not a cliche. The num...

Re: Photo to Art technique - Photoshop

This... is super useful, Kasumi-saaan. Thank you! **downloads** I'm glad you like it! Holy crap. Style 1-2 look down right great. When I first saw this, my jaw dropped. This particular technique looks like it will work very well with line art characters. Oh man. That's awesome. I don't know ... It'...

Re: Hidden Object game?

I believe this has been discussed several times in the past, you could try to search it in the forum (this LSF forum). You could try use Imagemap or perhaps the new screen function... I did search the forum first. Unfortunately, as I said before, I had no clue what to look under. Image map, hmm...?...

Hidden Object game? [Solved!]

What I would like to do to is create a story with pages for hunting Hidden Objects. Unfortunately the two games I've created are both simple visual novels, so I have No Clue where to begin looking in the RenPy Wiki for the coding to do this. I don't even know what to look for (or under.) In detail: ...

Re: Creating games/stories/VNs without giving up

I'd like to add that writing good short stories is not necessarily easier, lighter or in any way inferior to writing a longer story. Oh hell no a Short is not easier than a longer story, or even a novel! -- In a VN especially, a long story may only have a handful of background graphics, only 2 choi...

Re: Creating games/stories/VNs without giving up

1. "This is just a cheap knockoff of a popular series." It's not what you Have, it's what you DO with it. -- Just because the game is a simple dating simulation or a short 500 word kinetic fairy tale doesn't mean it's a cheap knock off. Every writer and artist sees the world differently from every ...

Re: Past or present tense

...I am used to writing in past tense, but seeing as the story of the vn is happening just this moment, I wasn't sure which tense I should use. Go with your first instinct: Past tense . Fiction in English is always written in the Past tense. The only time Present tense should be used is in a non-fi...

Re: User input variables?

Okay, I see what you're complaining about. Like most things in Ren'Py, you'll have to style them to fit your needs. You can style the input window to fit your needs. Mess around with the input_window and input_text styles until they mimic your NVL arrangement. ... I think that might be the best/onl...

Re: User input variables?

Whatever limitation you think is there is not there. NVL mode and regular mode use variables in the same way. You can also use characters in NVL mode, too. You just have to put the parameter "kind=nvl" inside your character definition. You can use a character called "e" if you wanted. You just have...

Re: User input variables?

I'm not sure what's to help? So the first line says: take a variable, name. then prompt the user to enter a string of maximum length 20 to the query "What is your name?" with a default option "Joe User". then store that string as name. The "%(name)s" tells the game to display name, and that name is...

User input variables?

Hi, I'd like to make a kinetic novel that involves using a list of things (input) given by the user that becomes part of the story. How would I code something like that? I did search the archives, which gave me renpy.input , but I'm a little confused by what I'm looking at. $ name = renpy.input("Wha...

This: http://www.morguefile.com/archive/display/691476 You can download Akvis Sketch free sample and use it for 10 days.

Re: The new renai.us/games.renpy.org support thread.

My apologies, but my computer locked up while I was uploading a screenshot and I ended up posting two of the same picture. Can I have either the first or second screenshot removed from my entry?
