PPCT: English Class Presentation

About two weeks after I made my third thing with Ren'Py, which I never shown, my English teacher gave us (all students in my class) assignment on explaining some tenses using PowerPoint Presentation or others. This was a group work, and I was pretty unlucky to get a tense I've never learnt before. I got a Past Perfect Continuous Tense. For God's sake, what was that?! Well... I didn't care much about what was it, but I had a plan on how to make the presentation. You know what my plan was...

A day after we got the assignment, we worked with PowerPoint, I've searched the materials the night before, so we didn't have much problems with this. After working for an hour or more, I told my friends that I was going to finish the rest. They agreed, but they didn't know what I was going to do...

When I reached my home after that, I went straight to my computer, worked this presentation. I had got a few ideas for this presentation before. For the BG, I used one BG from 'Project Nattsu', this was illegal, cuz I didn't tell the maker of 'Project Nattsu', but, come on, this was private use only...

Okay, back again. For Character Art, I planned using 'Wendy' by Mikan. But, because of some
problems, I changed it with 'Sylvie' from Deji. It was a nice drawing, too.

What else... oh, right, I didn't use many customized things, but I did use some 'show expression' in the script, which, I thought, responsible for some weird changes between the screen.

Long story short, I finished this after working for a day or two. With still some stuff need to be fixed. But after a few show delays, I managed to clean what was wrong.

So, just about a week or so, we shown the presentation, my friends, of course, surprised. But I told them that this would be easier than normal PowerPoint Presentation (cuz you just need to read the description below, no need to understand much more). So, we did it. My other friends were surprised too, cuz this was a very rare experience (I bet that I was the first student in my school using Ren'Py for presentation).

We managed to finish showing the presentation, but I must say that it wasn't as easy as I thought before. My friends didn't get used to with this kind of thing, so, several mistakes. But, in the end, it was okay, though. My second Ren'Py presentation worked well...
