ah of course!!! :) i was really worried because i didn't want to come off as rude. i'm so glad my suggestions helped!!
i understand coding is not easy; i've tried my hand at ren'py and struggled quite a bit with that aha. i just figured some input might be helpful, and i'm glad to find that it was beneficial.
also yes rusty was SO cute :D
also i'm not sure if it is just my computer but i was unable to fast forward anything (meaning things i had already played, like common route stuff), nevermind skip, so that's what i was alluding to when i said i had to keep clicking through the routes that i had already played.
i tried pressing the ctrl key multiple times but it didn't work D: not sure if that's what you meant by fast-forwarding in your reply, but i just wanted to let you know.
anyways, thank you for the response!
you're very kind in your reply :)
