First Steps

Before continuing, you should have a basic understanding of how to set up and run VNgen, as well as a basic understanding of qScript and its role in your projects.

Armed with this knowledge, you are now ready to begin creating your first visual novel in VNgen!

In this section, you will learn:

  • How to create your first on-screen dialog
  • How to create your first interactive choice
  • How to create your first visual novel scene
  • How to put it all together in qScript

To simplify, all examples in this guide will use placeholder assets that do not exist by default in your project. You must create them and add them to the code yourself! While you're at it, try editing and customizing the example code to see what happens!
