Re: Your ~Favorite~ cliches and tropes

I hate "proud to be a geek" in both fiction and real life. The people who flaunt their geekdom would make me look bad if I were to be honest about my geekdom. Ass-crazy, over-the-top anime conventions make it uncool to like anime. The crowd I hang out with is "people with no souls who think about n...

Re: Plot bunnies

Wow. This a really difficult question for me to answer. I mean, I am doing everything I could ever want to do with my games story wise and programming wise. My artist does animation and is really good at a variety of different styles...I would like to have an editor and a sound engineer on my team f...

Re: Whats your opinion on bad endings?

I personally enjoy both. I love a good sob after a sad ending juat as much as I love the feeling of joy I get when I get a happy one. I think the concept of "bad" endings in VN's is a mindset that is complete and utter rubbish. It is just an alternate ending that adds to the development of the chara...

Re: Studying or Gaming?

A tip for studying: 1. Never study until you (accidentally) fell a sleep. 2. Never study in tired condition, hungry, or sleepy. 3. The best time to study is when you just wake up, take a bath, and eat. 4. You need sugar for your brain when you're studying hard. 5. You need to alternate between stud...

Re: Layering music channels

Hmmm ... Do you know how much RAM you have? If it's too low, we probably can't help you. But then again, this is a show-text-with-a-picture program and it shouldn't be that inaccessible. I would definitely say that mixing all your sound layers into 1 will help when you're ready to do that. I'd also...

Re: Music vs. Sound effects

I'm pro-ambience. Pro pro pro sound. I use ambience over music a lot in my own projects. I think music helps at certain times, though. Just sound might bother me. Just as it might bother me if I played any game with no music (RollerCoaster Tycooooon *shakes fist*) or if I watched a movie with no so...

Music vs. Sound effects

I have hit an impasse in my project. My partner wants to know what kind of music we are going to have in the VN. This raises a whole bunch of questions for me because most of what I have planned/prepared are sound effects. Now when I say sound effects I don't mean "BAM" and "POW". I am talking about...

Re: Layering music channels

Thanks Aleema.

I think the problem could be that the game hogs too much system resources. Any suggestions on how to cut down on resource usage? I like the way my game is set up now and if there is a way to cut the resource cost and keep the content I want to utilize it.

Re: Layering music channels

How many channels? How are you declaring them? Ah I am finally home. Okay, here is my current code: init python: renpy.music.register_channel("hospital1", "sound", True) renpy.music.register_channel("hospital2", "sound", True) renpy.music.register_channel("hospital3", "sound", True) label start: sc...

Re: Layering music channels

I am trying to layer 3 channels and I am using the format written in the new wiki. I would pull it up and copy and paste it here, but I am at work and posting from my phone.

Layering music channels

I am having a problem with putting multiple music channels into my VN. When I put multiple channels into the code and start up the VN to test it, my music will start skipping. I also have sound effects programmed in so maybe I am overloading the engine with too much audio output. I could potentially...
