Re: Python "if statements" not working?

As always, let me make the post I almost always make.

default vs. define.

default is for when that variable with change.
define is for when that variable will never change.

Don't use define for variables that will change.

Re: How can I use it as an "action"?

But as always, remember you should be initializing your variables like this:

Code: Select all

default coins = 0
rather than like this

Code: Select all

$coins =  0

Re: Should there be a Wiki or Database for English Visual Novels Only?

I don't use VNDB...so some other version of it for Western VNs wouldn't really be all that useful or interesting to me. If the point is to be able to find new Western VNs, I use the Ren'Py Database, and the Completed Works threads here on Lemmasoft. What I really want is more WVN review sites that m...

Re: Problems with images and Dynamic Characters...

I don't think you need a Dynamic Character at all. You can just do: default m_name = "Masamune" image mas = Character("[m_name]", image="masamune") Note the image is a string, so has to be in quotes. And for your images rather than composites, you may want to use the new LayeredImage system. Here is...

It is just renpy.notify

with maybe some customization of the notify screen.

My post is just an implementation of Donmai's fix so that people don't have to do it themselves. So that is odd!

Re: My image in a composite keeps glitching/disappearing?

I don't think main composite is a good name for that image. Try giving is a one word name...that is also not main...which I think is a reserved term. All that said, looking at your ATL code... image ring: "ring.png" with Fade(0.5, 1, 0.5) 3.00 repeat what is the 3.00 doing there? is that supposed to...

Re: List Index out of Range, but it's not?

define vs default Use define when the variables will not ever change. For example: define days = ["Sunday", "Monday", "Tuesday", "Wednesday", "Thursday", "Friday", "Saturday"] The days variable will never change...so use define. Also use define for images and characters. On the other hand: default b...

Re: My image in a composite keeps glitching/disappearing?

I think the problem is that you have an image called image telephone and image telephone composite. Let's say you declare three images: image mary normal image mary happy image mary sad All three images have mary image tags. Only one mary can be onscreen at once. So this is useful so you can define ...

Re: Opinions regarding 3DCG VNs

Donmai, you are my favorite creator who uses DAZ for your VNs...you get some of the best images, and your framing and composition of the images are also really well done. I also I really like your writing. Whenever I see that there is a new work by you, I always check it out.

Re: Recommended EVNs for those who've never read/played them before

Vas that have inspired me are not the same as what I'd recommend to someone who is new to VNs. I was really inspired by Analogue: A Hate Story, Cinders, Face Off, Locked In, Elevator, Ristorante Amore, Doki Doki Literature Club, The One in Love, Coming Out on Top, Cause of Death, Magical Diary, and ...

Re: Opinions regarding 3DCG VNs

Donmai does great work with 3D images. Very impressive and evocative. For me, the problem with a lot of 3D art isn't that it is 3D art, but that 3D art is really hard to do well...and a lot of 3D art isn't done that well. It takes a lot work and time and effort to make 3D art to really sing. And som...

Re: Choice reward/consequence

Everything is about formatting properly--especially indentation--and declaring your variables. So for example. default surprise_yes = False label start(): "The game is starting, how surprising." menu: "Should I surprise him?" "yes": $ surprise_yes = True "blah, blah." "no": "blazzity, blah." label d...
