Re: A text file that will contain all text.

Pointers here: viewtopic.php?t=31698

Re: Finding the Highest Value of Variables for Endings

There's a more conceptual question here (for instance, how are you going to do tiebreakers? It's not so much a question of errors as you just have to decide what happens if there is one), but if statements should be fine for the mechanics.

Re: I need help creating a grid map overlay with movement restrictions

This isn't really a ren'py question so much as a python question. The issue of how to SHOW the location (using grid as a screen element) is secondary to how you're going to create a system to track the location (for instance, storing the player's location as x, y coordinates and then checking if the...

Re: .remove() isn't removing an object from array

Several issues:

1. http://foobarnbaz.com/2012/07/08/unders ... variables/ (adjust your expectations on how your deck declarations are working)

2. viewtopic.php?t=50496#p489027 (shuffling is probably easier to manage than picking and removing)

Re: Adding a On/Off button

https://www.renpy.org/doc/html/config.h ... ext_filter

config.say_menu_text_filter can be used to automatically filter all text, and it shouldn't be too hard to match against a list of words and return **** in their place.

Re: Ren'Py Gripes: Picker Functions

Not sure what's up with the second problem (default), but for the first one, the function seems to be behaving a bit weirdly. init python: def mypicker(attributes): rv = [ ] for i in attributes: if i in mygroups: rv.extend(mygroups[i]) for i in attributes: prefix, _, suffix = i.partition("_") if suf...

Re: Resizing History Screen

Re: Suggestion: Could "say" auto clean up image tags?

No worries. Try just a clean project with placeholders for bob, bob surprised, bob surprised talk and see how it goes. It's working fine for me in a clean project, latest stable build.
