Well, the best approach I've seen for that is a combination of checkbox and slider: Unmarking the checkbox disables the feature, and grays out the slider. So if you want to make it more intuitive, that's what I would do. (Especially for the auto-forward feature, since there are TWO sliders associate...

I think renaming "Auto-Forward Time" to "Auto-Forward Speed", and changing the slider tho work the same way as "Text Speed" would make more sense. (I am assuming that "Text Speed" is the speed with which the characters are drawn onto the screen, and not part of the auto-forward feature. That correct...

Gimp should give you this gradual transparency automatically, whenever you draw a line, or apply some other tool. It would actually be much harder to get it do hard transparency.

But I am no artist, and don't know which process you use...

Arrggh... Konqueror crashed on me before I could post my reply. Not funny at all! So here's the abbreviated version: Thanks a lot for the fixes! They will make working with images easier. :D ui.image takes positional properties when given a filename, and not an image object. I can't think of any oth...

I believe that ui.image should be able to take an im-constructed image as its first argument, and it also takes properties as arguments. It might take properties, but apparently, it doesn't take positional properties. This code line: ui.image( im.Image(file), xpos=0.0, xanchor='center', ypos=0.5, y...

You seem to be making some sort of image viewer... This is, to some extent, beyond what Ren'Py is really good at. Well, it's not that big a deal that Ren'Py can't make the distinction, and at least I saved myself a lot of frustrating trying by asking, didn't I? I believe that ui.image should be abl...

Glad I could be of help. :D Two other questions (no bugs, just questions :wink: ): 1) Any way to get the point across to Ren'Py that an interaction hasn't occured yet? Right now Ren'Py allows me to skip unseen pictures as well. Would generating from clauses on the fly help? (Haven't looked whether t...

Taking the rotozoom out prevents the error from occuring! I haven't found an image in this series where it doesn't happen. Gimp shows white background -> no alpha channel in the gifs. Setting up my own xserver to do 24bpp would be more work (Must have run into some stumbling block when I set up linu...

In this case stock Ren'Py 5.0.1 Depth should be 16bpp (thats the first number in the list for screen0, and I can see the staircase effect on my screen) Can't figure how to tell whether the gif has an alpha channel. Konqueror doesn't provide meta data on it, and I can't find where gimp gives out gene...

Just got the following error Exception: Surface alphas do not match. I tried to make a gif image half transparent ( via im.Alpha( image, alpha ) ). Is Ren'Py trying to tell me it can't do it because gifs don't have an alpha channel? If so, it's pretty poorly worded. Or is something else going on? ED...

Nope, I am leaving the python block.
However, I am not using the while statement either. I am just jumping back to the loop label (same way the DSE main loop works, basically).
config.rollback_enabled = True
config.hard_rollback_limit = config.rollback_length

Ren'Py questions

Alright, I really couldn't place this in "working on DSE", since it doesn't have the first thing to do with it. So I thought I'd at least keep the thread general, so that other people can use it to ask questions in it to, instead of opening up a new thread each time... Question: I have been doing a ...
