#1 Post by AoiUsui » Wed Sep 16, 2015 12:07 pm

Hi guys,

I'm would like to conduct a research about Visual Novels, I would like to know if there is/are system architecture of a Visual Novel? Or is there any system architecture of Ren'Py?

Any help will do. :)

What do you mean by "system architecture"? Ren'Py is software that has a couple of layers to it, but it sounds like there's something specific you have in mind. Is this for some sort of software engineering class?

Hi PyTom,

Yes, it can be how ren'py or our game thru the use of ren'py works.

And I don't really want to become a bother to you but since I might be needing as much information about this, I might as well ask for any information in regards to software engineering side.

You might be wondering where exactly I will use these information, it is for a research, it still in the proposal stage. I would like to conduct a research about the use of Visual Novel on a subject in school.

Thank you very much. :)
