VNlytics - Analytics for VN

#1 Post by DragoonHP » Sat Aug 13, 2016 1:18 pm

Hey everyone.

I have been working on a VN analytics program (like the one TellTale has) for quite a while and was wondering if anyone else will find it useful.
In it's current form, it records the choices player have taken along with any other gameplay related data you want to collect, like daily stats etc.

I have a very simple prototype set up, which you can try out from here > https://github.com/NellWatson/VNlytics- ... 0.1.2.0813
(There are three choices and at the end, you will see what you choose and what everyone else chose)

Prototype Homepage > https://github.com/NellWatson/VNlytics-Prototype
If you want to run your own server, please check out this thread > viewtopic.php?f=52&t=39857

If you have any questions or suggestions, or if you want any help setting up your own server or integrating it in your game, feel free to ask.

This is something I had been considering developing in-house for a while. Aside from getting useful data, it cab also add an element of community in what is traditionally a solo medium.

Will check out your project!

This is extremely interesting! I think I'll have to give it a go in my multiple ending VN. I always liked when Telltale told you your percentaged choice against other players. Thank you for developing this.

That would be awesome, dude!
I was about to make something like that for my visual novel. I will surely use it. (≧◡≦)

Hey Bryy. Sorry for the late response.

It was feature complete and had everything I wanted. In case you need any specific feature, I might be able to add it.

PS: Mods, sorry for necroposting!

I am really hype by this feature, it's exactly what I want... I wanted to try the example, but it crash at the first choice (I'm on windows) no matter which choices I took.

Is this a serveur problem (since the original code is old), or the feature is not working anymore at all ? Because if it's still works I would really love some help to install this on my game^^

Hey Ayael.

It's working perfectly in one of the games I'm working on.
I can help you set it up. Please let me know.

Will update the example game to work with the latest iteration of the code.

It's wonderful truly !

Edit : In the end, I thought it was better to do my own code, but it's still a very good work you should share it <3
