Re: How do I show a character that's a variable?

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... It de...

Re: how call in a screen a part of dialogue?

You can put the text inside a variable, and use that variable wherever (dialogue, screens...)

Re: DLC in game

You need to look also at "dlc" when building distributions:

Also, that won't work on Android.

Re: Ren'Py 7.3.4 Released

I think the audio folder it's a very good idea. I've updated to 7.3.4.596 and created a new empty game.. and the "audio" directory is not there. Is this a bug or intended? Am I missing something? I think that, like the empty "images" directory is created, also an empty "audio" directory should be cr...

Re: Open a URL

And it is possible to embed the webbrowser into the screen? Wow, Chivone, that's asking too much to renpy. But, renpy can access the web and retrieve information and images and use them (for example in a screen). I do that importing urllib and urllib2. See also: https://www.patreon.com/posts/news-f...

Do you mean that the game was closed before?
That is not possible. Computers don't open programs on their own (yet), thanks God. You'd need another hidden program running that executes your game in a given time.

Re: Create a loading screen when sending server request

I haven't checked all your code, but you probably need renpy.show_screen() instead of renpy.call_screen().

Also, don't put "init python" inside a label. Renpy will execute all "init whatever" at init time, so it's wasting indentation and your code is more confusing.

Re: How to make an app (like choices and Episode) to host my own Visual Novels?

With renpy you can develop a game that downloads different parts as "DLC".
https://renpy.org/doc/html/build.html?highlight=dlc
https://renpy.org/doc/html/updater.html?highlight=dlc

(The launcher does it when you download a text editor, for example, or rapt.)
You'll need your own web host.

Re: Spanish translations don't show accentuation

It seems your font has no accents, you need another font that supports them.
