I'm working on my game "The Silent Column" again, and I've come across this error:
While running game code: File "game/part1.rpy", line 149, in script
Exception: Sayer gip is not a function or string.
I looked at the code, line 149 in part1.rpy. This is it:
I went to script.rpy, and I have this, which is where the problem is:
#in the init block
$GipName="Girl in the park"
$gip=DynamicCharacter("GipName", color="#6ea73c", ctc_position="fixed", what_color="#6ea73c", what_prefix='"', what_suffix='"', ctc=anim.Blink("continue.png", xpos = 325, ypos =564))
I don't understand the problem. I followed this example perfectly, as far as I can tell:
$ povname = ""
$ pov = DynamicCharacter("povname", color=(192, 64, 64, 255))
How do I solve this problem?
And also, I have another question. It's not so much a problem, but, I havectc_position="fixed", what_prefix='"', what_suffix='"', ctc=anim.Blink("continue.png", xpos = 325, ypos =564)
Tacked on at the end of every character (asside from my narrator character, who doesn't speak in quotes, obviously.) just so I have the continue animation and quotes around their text. Is there a better way of doing this? That feels like a lot of wasted space, especially since I have a lot of characters.
Thanks for your help, all of you
