Re: How to show both AnimatedValue AND the value that's changing?

This sadly gives a "division by zero" from renpy's internal workings :( But it is possible to give it a variable and change the variable before changing the value variable.

Re: How to show both AnimatedValue AND the value that's changing?

An example like this should go in the docs, because to be honest, I've been trying to get an AnimatedValue to work for years. Partly because it takes "value" as an argument, suggesting that it's a one-time animation from old_value to value. Is there a way to plug a function as an argument, say, for ...

Re: Character's/Main personality

Any.
It is purely a matter of preference. Don't plan your characters based on a few answers in a forum, plan them so they fit into your story.

Re: Expression Not Working Properly

What you skipped is not defining the character, but giving the images the same tag. The first part of an image's name is the tag by which Renpy determines if a newly shown image should replace another. It works exactly the same as the "tag" keyword for screens in that regard.

Re: Need a team

I took a look at your story but I just can't read it with a straight face. "Brot" means "bread" in German and "Melbrot" invokes strong associations with "Mehlbrot", which is not a real word but would mean "flour bread". Unlucky choice of names, I suppose ;)

Re: Adding combat to a trade sim?

First off, those are some excellent ideas and pointers! I've never heard of Taipan before, I was actually thinking of The Patrician, especially the first game, mixed with actual story gameplay. You evaluation is right on point: Turning it into an RPG will make the trading part a secondary effort whe...

Re: Buttons and Doors

That example is 7 years old. There are probably some parts that don't work with modern versions of Renpy, and there is definitely some stuff in there that is (today) considered bad style. https://www.renpy.org/dev-doc/html/screens.html#imagebutton has a pretty decent documentation for imagebuttons. ...

Re: Click to continue icon

You can add a what_suffix for every character to append the image tag to every line a character speaks. You still need to do it for every character, but only once where you define them.

Re: Transform on show and showif/else

Half-solved; I tried "showif hoveredquest != quest" and swap the two blocks, and that solved the issue. No idea why though.

Transform on show and showif/else [sort of solved]

What I tried to do: A button has icons partially hidden behind it. When the button is hovered, the icons spread out and go next to the button, until the button is unhovered, when they will retract and only be partially visible behind the button again. I figured I would do this with a showif, either ...

Re: ww2 music

Not exactly associated with WW2, but "Preußens Gloria" is worth a look: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ELjttkTKug There must be a really old recording of it somewhere that is public domain by now.
