Ask questions about one topic per thread, and use a descriptive subject. "NotImplemented error in script.rpy" is a good subject, "Tom's problems" is not. Remember to include all of traceback.txt or error.txt when reporting a problem, as well as the relevant lines of script. Use the [code] tag to format scripts.

As I detailed at https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/renpy-allinone/ when I run renpy on ArchLinux (any game, including 'the question') I don't hear any audio (though the audio stream is registered, I see a volume control for it). As well when I quit the game the window closes but the process doesn't go away, and I have to manually kill python.

Otherwise the games work fine. The problem doesn't seem to be audio driver dependent (I tried forcing it to pulse, alsa, and oss, and all exhibited the exact same issue). Also there is no terminal output indicating a problem, even when setting config.debug_audio=true. I tried both 6.15.7 and the latest git as of yesterday.

I realize this doesn't affect everyone, but I need help to diagnose the issue further. (I'm an experienced developer, but not with python)

I think the first step would be to download Ren'Py from http://www.renpy.org/ , and see if the problem persists. That will tell us if the problem is with Ren'Py, or with the packaging.

I downloaded the SDK and attempt to run renpy.sh, but I get the following:

I'm sorry, but an uncaught exception occurred.

While loading the script.
Exception: Module _errorhandling could not be loaded.

Disregard the previous post, it turned out that the installation had set some environment variables. After restarting, the downloaded renpy-sdk is starting properly, however the original bug seems unchanged.

If I run the launcher with ./renpy.sh and then run a game I have to killall pythonw to get rid of the process. (The launcher itself exits gracefully so I can still use the terminal)
If I run ./renpy.sh the_question then I have to killall renpy to get the terminal back.

Sound worked for me once today, but not when I ran the program again. Again, if this was a C++ program I would know how to run gdb and get a dump of all the running threads to find out where it was getting locked up (since it refuses to exit gracefully when I quit the problem is likely a deadlock or infinite loop) However since it's a C module in python I have no idea how to help you.

I assume you can't reproduce, but could you tell me how to diagnose this problem myself?
