Re: Any general suggestion for a first time VN writer?

If you're having trouble getting started, the Snowflake Method may be able to help. It basically involves taking a one-sentence summary of your story, expanding on it, and then expanding on that expansion, and so on and so forth, until you have a full story. This lets you ensure that your basic stor...

Re: A man married to a pillow

What's the marriage even mean though? It means never having to say you're sorry for cracking an endless series of "pillow talk" jokes. Although I imagine once those run out, they'll probably drift apart and start seeing other people. Well, the pillow might see other people, I'm assuming the guy wil...

Re: Most Surprising Plot Twists in a VN

I think the main theme of Yume Miru Kusuri is the usual "Winner Never Use Drugs" or "Use Drugs You Sucks"... no matter what the reason is... They took an entire story to tell people that? Back in my day, all it took was 5 seconds at the start of an arcade game to drill it into our heads. Of course,...

Re: Error while trying to rotate textbox

Stuff in init likes to be indented. Like this:

Code: Select all

init:
    transform rotate45:
        xanchor .5 yanchor .5
        xpos 400 ypos 525
        rotate 45

    define crazy = Character("Crazy", show_transform=rotate45)

label start:
crazy "nextextextxtt..."
Should work?

But, not really... Of course, nothing's stopping you from saying people in that world only use 10%, but it's not quite scientific truth.

Re: Exile Gear Raynar

Congratulations on a finished project! Can we mirror this at the Ren'Ai Archives? (http://www.renai.us) Also, do you plan on releasing a fixed version (the spelling checked by chronoluminaire)? If so, we'll wait for a final updated version. Thanks! :P I'd be honoured to be part of the Archives~! :D...

Re: Exile Gear Raynar

Thanks much for the comments everyone! And thank you chronoluminaire for fixing my terrible spelling. (I guess that's what I get for always writing between 12-4 in the morning. :oops: )

Did it only crash the one time, or does it keep happening?
