Relationship Points?

#1 Post by redeyesblackpanda » Thu Dec 22, 2011 4:39 am

Hi everybody, I'm new to making VN's (and programming in general, lol). Some games have "relationship points" that can be gained by choices made, and different events that trigger depending on the amount of these points. I don't know how to do this. I'm using Renpy. It's possible, right? I'm guessing that it involves using python somehow? Can someone give me an example? Thanks.

Not really checking the forums any more due to time constraints, so if you want to contact me, PM. I'll get a notification and log in. :mrgreen:
Also, I've been hit and run posting, which means I don't see many replies. If you want to respond to something I've said, also feel free to PM me.

NOTE: if you've got questions about vnovel or things like that, it's Leon that you should be contacting. Leon's been pretty much handling everything, but due to various reasons, I've had to withdraw entirely.

Shoot, I think I put this in the wrong forum... Is there a way for a mod to move it to Ren'Py Questions and Announcements?

This should explain the whole process to you. Remember to use proper indentation. :o

Is there a way to limit how many points? I wanted to make a system that restarts during every chapter with story alters depending on what the character's relationship point on a -1 0 +1 scale. something where it won't go past the -1 and +1, only in between.
