Re: Language 'None' dialogue translation

Renpy translation system is designed to translate games that are completed in the original language. Developing a game in several languages at the same time causes those problems. What I do, as rames44 has suggested, is a "translation " also for the original language. And, if I need to correct somet...

Re: How to center text?

xalign is always relative to the container. Here you have label and text inside a vbox. So your xalign 0.5 probably is working Ok: centering the elements inside the vbox. The vbox is not centered in its container. What is the vbox container? The vbox is inside another screen (see the "use"). So you ...

Re: Adding persistent data to images [HELP]

Are you sure you need persistent variables at all? Can't you use normal variables, default them, change them in the screen and save them as a normal save? That should work. Note that "persistent" variables are shared between saves. So, if you start a new game, you'll find the values of the persisten...

Re: How to change the initial language?

"persistent.lang" is not a renpy variable. Neither "lang" is. Those variables don't do anything to the translation system of renpy. 1. You need a None language, that is the original language the game is created. I'm assuming your game is not in originally in English. 2. Usually we put a "change lang...

Re: Ren'Py Multiplayer Adventure Game: Rhaier Kingdom [Nano2020]

i've never heard of a mutliplayer vn before! the concept sounds so interesting, and i think this project has a lot of potential! maybe there could be more incentive to interact with other players, such as tradeable items unique to that specific copy of the game (think of the random fruits in animal...

Re: Screen question from a total newbie

There are many ways of doing it. You can adapt the position of the textbox in the gui.rpy file and in screens.rpy. The same for the choices menu: adapt it in gui.rpy and screens.rpy (search for any property with "choice" in it. You probably want some background image for those two screens when they ...

Re: AttributeError:'unicode' object has no attribute 'append'

The first call to add_item adds the item and then converts the self.item attribute into a string (that's the "join" part). So the second call tries to add an item to a string. Try using two different attributes. init python: class Inventory: def __init__(self): self.items = [] self.string = "" def a...

You can use brackets to use a variable in image names: https://renpy.org/doc/html/displayables.html#displayables You can use also show expression https://renpy.org/doc/html/displaying_images.html#show-statement, Also, be careful not using the same variable name for characters and sprites (you are us...

Re: Grid based tactical game (is it possible?)

Wow, comparing Ren'py and Unity feels pretty strange, like it's not really clear what you want to do. Both programs have really different goals.
Anyway, in renpy you can do that sort of stuff. See Sunrider, for example (https://github.com/vaendryl/Sunrider)

Re: Social Media Suport In Game

That said, you can make renpy read and send things to a web page and maybe have that web (not renpy) do the sharing with social media. It's possible to use urllib2 inside renpy to send and read info from a php page. That php can make lots of things, like send automatic emails and update a database. ...

Re: How to output formatted text from file to a ren'py screen?

I have a whole bunch of RTF files of text that's formatted with bold, underline, italic, even including some tables. Instead of copy & pasting each of these into an RPY file, which would involve lots of extra formatting via text tags, styles, properties, etc, it would be easier to simply just outpu...

Re: How to output formatted text from file to a ren'py screen?

Your question includes some different things. - I use codecs.open to open/write utf-8 text files to/from renpy. - you can store that data in variables, and use that variables to show their content in renpy. - formatting text is another matter, you have in renpy text tags, styles, properties...
