Yay Ren’py games![…]
Replying here if that’s okay, Tumblr’s ask limitations drive me up the wall.[…]
Well, to be honest I don’t know much about coding as of now. Considered porting Visual Novels to Ren’py so that they could be available on other platforms than Windows (I’m a Linux user).
That said I think making the text box more tranparent wouldn’t be that hard? It would probably requires a line of code or two or simply adjusting it to your liking. This is, at least, how I do this with my Linux installation in some configs when there’s no other choice.
Another, maybe more simple solution would be making your own text box with some graphics software like Sai or Gimp and implement it in the game. I believe most Visual Novels I know actually do this; DMMd included.
Just being curious, did you receive other feedbacks aside from this one?
The number of platforms Ren’Py supports is impressive, isn’t it?
Yeah, it’s pretty much a matter of linking a background image as textbox, so a transparent PNG file would work. That’s what I did to lighten up the textbox in the Silent Oath ending. Not too sure about applying image transformations since text windows technically don’t count as displayables afaik (unless the declared names could be linked?). But to be honest, I wasn’t keen on making the textboxes too transparent since the underlaying pictures could mess with text readability imo. The fancy textboxes DMMd uses look cool, but are heavily size-restricted, and designing a new one for longer passages of text would be a hassle for a lazy newbie like me haha. So (heavily bastardised) default themes were the best choice at the time. But I do agree that the fangame would have benefited from more thorough design. If you’re interested, I can send the script files for you to dissect.
There’s been a small handful of direct feedback, almost all anon so they’ve been published with my replies. Some of the reblog tags have been interesting as well. It’s definitely more than expected, given how the fangame is pretty much pure vanilla gen canonverse material made by someone not particularly known or sociable in the fandom. I’m quite pleasantly surprised.
