    Sure, you can access all the custom variables set in naninovel scenario scripts via C# and vice versa. See https://naninovel.com/guide/custom-variables for more info.

    We've added a guide for resource providers; check out how you can configure custom asset serving scenarios (eg, loading scenario scripts from a shared folder outside of the Unity project or game build directory): https://naninovel.com/guide/resource-providers

    All the Naninovel configuration menus are supporting Unity's presets feature. It could be useful to create several configuration presets when deploying to different target platforms (eg, mobile, stanadlone, console, etc).

    In v1.9.4, which will soon be available on the Asset Store, all the engine features and built-in UIs are now usable with gamepad and/or keyboard by default. ⌨️

    I am interested if you could go into more detail as how the integration with Adventure Creator demo scene is done, to call the visual novel style dialogue and get back to AC like in the video. What are the steps required?

    You can find details in the guide: https://naninovel.com/guide/adventure-creator.html There is also a link to a github repo there, containing an example integration showed in the demo video.

    In the upcoming update we're adding an option to inject custom configuration providers. The feature makes possible various scenarios, eg reading configuration data from JSON files stored on a remote host. ⚙️

    We've rolled a dedicated community forum!

    We hope it'll help Naninovel users to communicate and share information in a more structured and persistent way, compared to discord chat.

    Check out how you can override a built-in command to control text reveal speed via generic text lines.

    https://forum.naninovel.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=53

    Commands overriding is a new feature coming in v1.11, which can already be downloaded on Naninovel's discord.

    Following Unity's decision to make professional theme available for free, we've added a compatible dark style for Naninovel's visual script editor and configuration menus.

    Hey just wanted to stop by and say that your demo is great and very explanatory. I also appreciate how much you have been keeping this asset up to date. I'll be looking more into using this asset for a future project!

    Hey, Starting with Naninovel v1.13 layered chars support animations (you can author the animations with Unity's Animator or simple animation clips). You can download the pre-release package on our Discord. For further questions please see: https://naninovel.com/support/#developer-support

    Do you have a real solution for the Nintendo SWITCH crashing ?. The issue of Serialization Handlers is difficult for me to implement. Perhaps an example of a project that solved the crash would help me a lot.

    We have several users confirmed Naninovel is working fine on Switch with a custom serialization handler. Nintendo has enforced strict access limitations on the platform SDK and docs, so it's impossible to provide any examples, unfortunately.

    Commands can now be folded in our VS Code extension, allowing writers to focus on the dialogues.

    To fold/unfold all commands at once, use Ctrl+K,0 and Ctrl+K,J hotkeys respectively. The bindings can be changed in the IDE settings.
