Basic Crash Course in Kirikiri/KAG3 (Part 2)

In part 1, I showed you where to get Kirikiri Engine and it’s modern fork.

In part 2, we’ll go over scripting, the code, and folder structure.

We’ll first begin with the project structure.

  • The “bgimage” folder is where you’ll put your title screen and backgrounds.
  • The “bgm” folder is where you’ll put you background music.
  • The “fgimage” folder is where you’ll put your character sprites, text boxes, etc.
  • The “image” folder is where you’ll put your event CGs.
  • The “other” folder is for storing your font, etc.
  • The “rule” folder is where you put your transition images.
  • The “scenario” folder is the meat of the project. This is where you’ll be writing dialogue, commands, etc.
  • The “sound” folder is where you’ll put your sound effects and voice files if your game has voice acting.
  • The “system” folder is where the files for creating the main window, etc. live.
  • The Video folder is where you store your movies.
  • The “plugin” folder is where the plugins you can use for your game reside.

Now we’ll look at the first file, “Config.tjs”. The code here is basically similar to JavaScript, so if you’re familiar with that, you’ll be right at home here.

The Line “;System.title = “”;” is for the full name of your game. It’ll appear as the window title.

In “function KAGWindow_config()” is where we set the configuration for our game.

The lines “;sc.Width=640;” and “;sc.Height=480;” is where we set the resolution of our game. I do not know the maximum resolution it can handle, so experiment.

The rest of the lines in the function should be a little self explanatory.

Moving along to “function MessageLayer_config()”, this is where we set our textbox graphic, font, font size, and textbox size and location.

The line “;layerType = “”;” controls the display of our textbox. You have 2 options here: “ltAddAlpha” or “ltAlpha”. This controls the alpha or transparency of the textbox graphics either through masking or if the graphic has an alpha channel.

The line “;frameGraphic = “”;” controls the textbox display. If you wish to use a custom graphic, put the image in the folder “fgimage” and fill in with “fgimage/imagename.png”.

The lines “;ml = 15;”, “;mt = 512;”, “;mw = 640-32;”, and “;mh = 480-32;” deal with the position of the textbox from the left of the main window, top of the main window, width, and height respectively.

Next settings we’ll deal with are line breaks and page breaks. You can have custom images for these though they’ll have to be set up according to the original images. Speaking of, the images you’ll want to alter for these are “linebreak_a.png” and “pagebreak_a.png”. Nothing else needs to be changed.

The rest of files in the “system” folder deal with stopping/starting/fading the BGM, and stuff to do with the engine itself.

Moving along to the final file we’ll be looking at, “startup.tjs”, this is where the engine loads the plugins and draws the game window. It then calls the “Initialize.tjs” to actually load the game, which then reads from “first.ks” to start the game proper.

Stay tuned for Part 3, where we’ll finish up with the actual “.ks” files.

 

Basic Crash Course in Kirikiri/KAG3 (Part 1).

Since Ren’Py 7 released, the scripting has gotten too complicated to wrap my pea-brain around.

So I went off in search of another VN with not as complicated scripting and stumbled across Kirikiri Engine.

The entire thing is in Japanese, and since my Japanese skills are non-existent, I went off to Google to find tutorials in English.

Let’s just say it was a fruitless search.

So, I dove head first into learning it. With the help of Google Translate and some trial and error, I’ve got some knowledge of how it works.

This post and the next one will go over the basics of getting up and running with Kirikiri/KAG3. So with the introduction out of the way, let’s get started.

Part 1 deals with downloading and setting up Kirikiri.

Part 2 will get to the scripting and code portion.

This page contains some basics in setting up the engine and getting started scripting. Unfortunately, the translation is incomplete and doesn’t go into much detail.

First off, you’ll need to go here, scroll down to 吉里吉里2and download the middle 2 files.

Then scroll up to “ダウンロード” and download the first file.

One of the archives contains various utilities for making fonts, setting loop points for BGM, etc. and KirikiriZ is a more up to date fork of the original Kirikiri.

Finally, you’ll need to download the latest version of FlashDevelop (if you don’t want to install it, grab the portable version) and this plugin (click “kkefz-1.0.0.zip” and then click the download button).

Once you install/unzip FlashDevelop, unzip the kkefz-1.0.0.zip archive into the base folder of FD.

Start up FD and click Project>New Project. You’ll be greeted with this screen:

Select “KrkrZ Kag Project” and fill in the details and you’ll be staring at the base project. This is the end of Part 1. Part 2, going over tags, code, and script writing is coming soon.

 

New and Last item.

After doing some heavy thinking and soul searching, it is with a heavy heart that this will be my final release. I am officially retiring from creating content for Poser/DAZ Studio. With that said, let’s get to the meat of the post. There will be no image due to the item being of a more, “adult”, persuasion.

DAZ Studio vacation continues

I’m still taking a break from making Poser/DAZ Studio content. I just don’t have the inspiration I used to.

So instead, I’m focusing all my efforts on developing a game. Playing a lot of “adult games” lately has inspired me. Inspired by games like Lilith’s Throne and Lust Doll, I’ve decided to take elements from both and merge them into one game. I’m calling it Tower of Lust and you can find the beginnings of it over at my GitHub page.

Motivation

I’m sorry that my output’s been a little slow. I’ve just had no motivation to get anything done.

I did play around with Substance Painter for a while and I quite like it.
Had to uninstall it though because the 30 day trial was over.

So yeah, I guess you could call this an extended vacation. Don’t know when I’ll be able to get the motivation to start creating again.

Things took a turn for the worse

2 Days after I posted the previous news item, I suffered a mild heart attack. I had 3 clogged arteries. one 100%, one about 40%, and the other about 50%. The hospital cleaned out the fully clogged artery and put a stent in. They’re hoping meds and healthy living will help clean out the others. Since I have no insurance, no job, etc. I have to pay for the whole thing.

This is in addition to trying to raise funds to move to Seattle. I’m almost ready to just give up and become a vegetable. Housing situation still hasn’t changed, so I’m still on hiatus.

I’m just so sick and tired of living in a rural town where I have no future. When I’ll return to making content is up in the air.

If you wish to help please consider donating. If you can’t, letting people know will help.

Have fun and happy rendering!
