Posted a new reply in Café Rouge in the Discuss Your Visual Novel forum: Hi guys, wow I can't believe it's going to be December in just a few days. 

I have some bad news, @DAX and I decided to postpone the last extra story until further notice. I know we said we would finish Cafe Rouge by end of Winter 2022, but it looks like now with Dax on break, we can't finish Cafe Rouge until Dax finishes making the art book. 

I know this might come as a disappointment to some of you, but the personal lives of everyone working on the CR project come first. So until Dax is back from her break, we can't send out the physical books to all of you and therefore we've decided to postpone the last prologue story until then.

Thanks for your patience everybody, and if you have any more questions about Cafe Rouge, you can ask Dax on her Twitter

Happy holidays everybody! :)

Created new topic Yearly Newsletter 2022 in the Newsletter forum:

Dear CloudNovelists,

It is I, your one and only favorite tech princess, Sonya! Phoowie it's been more than a year since our last newsletter, and this will be our only 2022 newsletter of the entire year! Wow time flies. 

So as you all know, @ThayBrownie is officially back, and she will be taking @DAX's place as the head moderator of CloudNovel®. She will also be taking over the weekly newsletters, because as you remember @fluffness was the first moderator writing all the newsletters, but she (and monoyagi) are literally retired, so moving forward, ThayBrownie will be in charge of the newsletters from now on. 

So you're probably wondering, wait a minute what is in a weekly newsletter? Well, we got some exciting things to talk about of course, and they will include all (and possibly more) of the following topics:

  • Sonya's updates on the code/software development
  • Featured resource(character, background, etc) of the week
  • Featured art challenges images from our Discord

For now, for those who are curious, I have some small updates concerning future kickstarters and game jams on the site. I will not be having my next crowdfunding campaign very soon, and my preferred choice is Kickstarter, as I'm unfamiliar with Indiegogo. No it won't be the fan disk or "sequel" to Cafe Rouge, because I really want to take a break from that story. I can't tell you what I'm doing next, but when I'm ready to announce it, I'll be sure to let everyone know my next game.

We plan to judge the 2022 Valentine's Game Jam sometime in 2023, sometime when Dax comes back from her break. For now, the official judging is postponed. That doesn't mean we won't be having another game jam or contest soon, in fact, with Lunar New Year coming next month, we MIGHT just have another Lunar zodiac game jam..... so who knows, maybe you should keep an eye out.... 👀

Anyhoo that's it for our last and only newsletter of 2022. I really can't believe we only had this one newsletter this year, but hey, the staff was busy! 

Happy new year everybody! @ThayBrownie will be the one posting newsletters from now on, so keep a lookout!

Posted a new reply in Game Not Loading in the Support and suggestions forum: I've labeled this thread as solved since it looks like the original user has deleted their account and is no longer seeking help from forums to resolve their issue. 

Therefore I assume this problem is now resolved, thanks!

Posted a new reply in How do I size the images? I have some of my assets and I'm trying to start a game. Thanks! in the Support and suggestions forum: Hey there, 

So the recommended sizes for the standard visual novel are 400-500 width and 600-700 height for a character. Depending on the stage dimensions of your game, make the BGs a little bigger (like for a default 1280px by 720px stage size, make the backgrounds 1300px by 800px) so you can add nice animations like bounce or shake, and the background animations will look more natural in the scene. 

We have a pinned message in our discord (#questions channel) for more detailed info:

Sorry about that, we were in the middle of releasing a big update which might have messed with the live publicly playable game. It looks like the hairstyles seem to be working again, let us know if you have anymore issues! ^^
