Introducing and Describing a new Character[solved]

#1 Post by henloanyone » Wed Mar 06, 2019 11:24 am

On some VNs I played whenever there's a new character being introduced, the game shows the character sprite from bottom to top while describing the character's characteristics. I'm pretty new at using Ren'Py so basic codes are all I know and I wouldn't want to introduce a character by simply just showing an image

Please help!

I'm sorry ahahah. I'll try to explain it as easy as I can.

Basically, I want to show a character where the camera angle starts from the bottom going upwards.

It's like when you look at a person you first look at their feet, the chest and then their face.

Thank you very much!
I have been looking for this since last month and you helped me stop from giving up on this one.
Really, thanks!

Personally, I prefer introducing characters the way you do in a film or television series. They enter the scene, have a Character Establishing Moment to show the player what the character is like, and the plot continues on to the next scene.

I thought about that too but it wouldn't suit the way on how the story would progress.

I was aiming to make a boring looping game where I want the player to feel what it's like to live a life where nothing changes. Patience is needed and I want the player to persevere through the loop till he/she reach the twist.

Your advice is appreciated. I will be sure keep it in mind and use it to my future games.

Thank you. :D
