Re: Most Difficult Thing About Visual Novels

For me, writing as well. Programming's the part I enjoy the most, actually!

Re: Is a Mad Dog Mccree Clone Possible With Ren'Py?

It looks entirely possible. The only thing I'd be worried about is accurate timing / synchronisation with the video. Ren'Py doesn't let you pull out stuff like how long the video has been played for, so all you can do is start the video, record the time and hope that nothing upsets this. The error s...

Re: The Creator VS The Creation

Um, both? I don't believe in putting words in the author's mouth. If you say that this book is an allegory to the Industrial Revolution you'd better be damn sure. On the other hand, I believe that different people can get different things out of a story. I know a lot of authors ascribe to the belief...

Re: Ren'Py dependencies (linux)?

renpy uses python 2.7. Something to know about python: python3 is different to python2. python 3.4 is not an upgrade to python 2.7. python 2.7 is the latest version of python2. python 3.4 is the latest version of python3.

Just install what it needs.

Re: Resolution does not match

1184x666 is 16:9

Anyway, when playing your game, go into Preferences and click 'Window' under 'Display'. If that doesn't work, your screen is too small for 1280x720 but it should work for other people. You still need to code your game as if it was 1280x720; it's just scaled down for you.

Re: Resolution does not match

The window in that screenshot is clearly 16:9, so it's not a helpful screenshot for diagnosing your problem (the problem being that the window is 4:3)

Re: Is anime on its death bed?

Our filter has disappeared. As gekiganwing brought up, Sturgeon's Law means 90% of anything is crap. But in the past, in the West, we only got to see the 10% that was good. Japanese audiences filtered out the 90% of crappy shows for us. I don't feel it worked that well. There's so much awesome 80s ...

Re: Image Errors in ren'py script; HELP

Alternatively, you can just get rid of the 'init:' line, as image and define statements are implicitly init.

Re: Large animated sprites

anim.Filmstrip() > a ton of images. If you need more control, atl crop. After that the issue is just your image cache size (configurable), although I started having performance issues with very large animations eventually. If you want to send me a renpy project with your current attempt at this I ca...

Re: [Solved] Function being executed regardless of click.

You say it's working, but I don't see how 'Return(actionStudy)' would result in actionStudy ever being called, unless you $_return() or something like that somewhere that doesn't appear in this code.

anyway, action [actionStudy, Return()]

Re: Comparing Numbered Variables Against One Another Help?

The way the example I posted is written, Alice wins the tiebreaker, then Bob, then Charlie. Just put them in order like that.

Re: Comparing Numbered Variables Against One Another Help?

Simplest way, to me, seems to be to get the maximum and compare against it

Code: Select all

$most_points = max(alice_points, bob_points, charlie_points)
if alice_points == most_points:
    jump alice_route
elif bob_points == most_points:
    jump bob_route
elif charlie_points == most_points:
    jump charlie_route

Re: Grid overfull?

the 'spacing' style property.

Unfortunately you can't set differing x and y spacings with this, so if you want that you'll have to use a vbox of hboxes or something similar.

Re: Grid overfull?

This is utterly mystifying as that exception is only raised if the number of children to the grid displayable is greater than the rows * columns of the grid displayable, which is not the case here. So I have no clue; your code is clearly infected with demons and you'll have to flush them out. 1) Try...
