Ren'Py v1.7.1 Released

Ren'Py v1.7.1

uyjulian has released a new version of Ren'Py, whichn'Py Visual Novel Engine is a free software engine which facilitates the creation of visual novels, a form of computer-mediated storytelling. Ren'Py is a portmanteau of ren'ai, the Japanese word for 'romantic love', a common element of games made using Ren'Py; and Python, the programming language that Ren'Py runs on. Ren'Py has proved attractive to English-language hobbyists; over 1000 games use the Ren'Py engine, nearly all in English.

`renpy-switch-the-question-v1.1.nro` can be run on your Nintendo Switch for a sample visual novel entitled "The Question."
`renpy-switch-sdk-v1.1.7z` contains the files needed to build your own game.
Basic steps for creating a RomFS image:

1.  Place `lib`, `renpy`, ``, and `game` into the `Contents` subdirectory of the root of the RomFS image
2.  Use `nacptool` from devkitPro `switch-tools` package to create a NACP file with the name of the application, the author, and the version.
3.  Use `elf2nro` from devkitPro `switch-tools` package to create a NRO file with the path to the ELF file, and with the `--romfsdir=` argument, the path to the `Contents` directory (not the `Contents` directory itself)

If you do not want to create a RomFS image, the old way of placing `lib`, `renpy`, ``, and `game` in the same directory as `renpy-switch.nro` still works.

`renpy-switch-extra-libraries-v1.1.7z` contains extra Python standard libraries if you are using those that are not included in Ren'Py.
