This is crazy helpful. :) I'm hoping to get a game onto Steam sometime-ish (with achievements) and am super grateful for you creating such a clear and easy to use guide!
I hope it makes the process easier for you~! ^^

Ren'Py Steam Achievement Guide

Hello! I am by no means a master, and there are likely better/cleaner ways to do this. This is how I got simple achievements for my game working on Steam. Getting the Steam Support Library Firstly, you will need to contact PyTom in order to get the Steam Support Library from him, for Ren’Py. The cod...

Re: Main Menu Video breaks when trying to add music

No luck with that, so I think I'm just going to add a short version of the song to the video. I'm not sure what the issue is, and it's possible it's because my overall code is fairly old, but oh well!
Better luck next time and thanks for the help.

Main Menu Video breaks when trying to add music

Hello! This is the first time I've tried using a video for the background of the main menu for my game. It worked great until I tried adding music to the main menu using #config.main_menu_music = "music/mainmenu.ogg" The moment I turn that line on, my game starts and 1) No music plays, 2) my menu bu...

Re: Cutscene won't display

Did some more testing, problem seems to be with the type of ren'py game I created (an older one that doesn't use the new gui). Or at least with the version of the script I'm working with now, which uses some older code. Movie plays with that code in a new build. Will have to think about what to do! ...

Not totally sure how it would work, but you could try looking at this.

I've been all over the renpy documentation and relevant troubleshooting threads I could find, with no luck~!

Cutscene won't display

Tried to get this code working $ renpy.movie_cutscene("movies/jc_phones_null_short.webm") The screen freezes until the length of the movie is over, and then it resumes the game as normal. I can get movies to work with image jc_phones_null_short = Movie(play="movies/jc_phones_null_short.webm", loops=...

Re: GeckosArt Shoppe - Open! (Sprites, Cgs, Concepts, etc)

Working with Sita is fantastic! She's super fast - listens to feedback - and goes way beyond what I was expecting. I loved her work in Brilliant Shadows/Pale Spectrum - so I couldn't believe that I could actually hire her to help me on my own VN, The Red Seed. I asked for some difficult things to p...

Layered Parallax Code

Thought I'd share the parallax code that's floating around the forums, but in one place with all the fiddly bits fixed. This code was not written originally by me. I am just sharing what I found on the forums. This code lets you use different layers to give a parallax effect to in-game elements with...

Re: Ren'Py 6.99.14 Prereleased

Heyas! New stuff sounds great. I tried poking around various places to try to get my hands on "A new multiple character dialogue system makes it possible for multiple characters to display dialogue on the screen at once." some of that but so far no luck. Is there any sort of documentation/a thread a...

Main Menu with a Video Background Code

Just posting a quick guide to using a movie (such as webm) for your main menu, as I spent a bit of time today trying to work out all of the kinks! (I was missing one line of code.) The code uses a webm video in the background with imagebuttons over it. This is the result! (in a few animated frames f...
