Re: Automatically use transform when showing image

I think the easiest way is to stick with transforms separated by commas. There are two things I looked up that are very roughly in the ballpark of what you're describing:

Re: Readback - Excluding Text?

Are we talking about the rollback feature or is this a different feature..? And I don't know about you but when I tested this, changing _history didn't do anything. I may have misunderstood, but I interpreted the question to be about the History tab on the menu and the desire for some things to not...

Re: Labels not being recognized

Sorry if this is an incredibly dumb question, but I am very new to this. Either way, I have 5 different labels (3 options that lead into 2 other options for a total of 5 different labels); however, none of the labels are recognized. This is because of how the syntax should be. You are writing lines...

The _history variable can be used to disable and re-enable history storage.

Re: Moving menu buttons?

Then my next question is; can transform be more randomised? So it'd be more difficult to click on the buttons? You can make it as random as you want really. It depends on the type of behavior you want the buttons to exhibit and then could make a transform that does it. I kept my example simplified ...

Re: TypeError: 'unicode' object is not callable

I think your problem is in these two lines: input default "FirstName" length 10 allow "abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ" changed persistent.mc input default "LastName" length 10 allow "abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ" changed persistent.lname I am pretty sure...

Re: Moving menu buttons?

The short answer is yes. This is definitely possible. It uses screen language and ATL. Learn more about those things in these links: https://renpy.org/doc/html/screens.html https://renpy.org/doc/html/screen_actions.html https://renpy.org/doc/html/atl.html I messed with some code that doesn't provide...

Re: Showing a new Menu once a goal is reached

I think he is trying to point out that they're the same conditional: if leave >= 3: This means they're checking for exact the same condition instead of different ones. This isn't causing any sort of syntax error though. When does the error occur while the program is running? Is it right when the men...

Re: Imagebutton appears before animation

It's possible to prevent the user from clicking it for a set amount of time. I would try it this way although there may be an easier way. In your main code, you can add a variable just before you call the screen. $ loaded = False # whatever code you have for your call screen Then you can add a timer...

Re: how to "redeclare" images?

Try this: label csf: $ outfit = "f" #<-- this is the only line to change, make it a single equals sign scene closet with Dissolve(0.5) show cf "very classy!" There is a difference between the single equals and double equals. A single equals will assign a value. The double equals evaluates whether th...

Re: I am getting an AttributeError?

The variable fbpwmag1 seems to hold a simple integer value when the 'buy' function is called, but it looks like it needs to be an 'Item' object from your code. You should check the last time value of fbpwmag1 is changed before the line that causes the error runs.

Re: Moveout not working at all?

I believe this is because 'moveout' only triggers on 'hide' and not on 'show'.

Code: Select all

    hide sample character_1 happy with moveoutright   #change your line of code to this
Also, when you copy and paste code, it works better if you use the code tag so people can see the correct indentation.
