Pause voice acting? {w} in text

So I know that you can pause text by doing this:

Code: Select all

Hello my name is{w} Bob.
However, if I decide to add voice acting to the above line. Then how would I make sure it pauses during the {w}?

Game crashing and .exe not booting up anymore [SOLVED]

Solution edit: The problem lies within the save files. So far this has had a 90% resolve rate for me. 1. Go into your %appdata% 2. Locate Renpy > <game name> > persistent file 3. Delete the persistent file. The game should boot up again now. ------- OLD POST ------- This is a problem that has been ...

Live2d compared to other software

I have a question. What is the benefit of using Live2D over other animating software like After Effects or even Adobe Animate? Is it better optimized? Are there other features possible? Is it easier to program? Higher quality? In the past I've used AE, Toonboom and Adobe Animate. So I'm curious if I...

Re: Program won't load

I've had this reported aswell. Turns out some anti-virus see the .exe of the game as a virus and block it. That could be the problem.

Re: Renpy 7.4 Exception: Properties are not allowed here. [Solved]

Sorry to necro this thread, but I found out what's causing the error message. It was actually part of a different bit of code that I didn't link. The error was here: if itemsSelectButton == 3: modal True # <- Conflict default x = renpy.get_mouse_pos()[0] default y = renpy.get_mouse_pos()[1] frame: p...

Renpy 7.4 Exception: Properties are not allowed here. [Solved]

Just downloaded v7.4 and when trying to launch my game I get: After initialization, but before game start. File "game/items.rpy", line 2856, in prepare_screen screen items: Exception: Properties are not allowed here. When I look in the code, it's just a normal screen with imagebuttons. Here's a snip...

How to make a clickable moving button

I'm making a side scrolling game where the player can randomly encounter an event along the way. That means the encounter spawns somewhere along the path and comes into frame as you move from left to right. Now what I want to do is make the encounter a button that you can click on. The problem I nor...

Walking when holding down key

Two questions. 1. I'm trying to add a movement mechanic, but I want the background to move instead of the character. For this I'm using a screen with a viewport. What do I need to add to make the background move in sync with the amount of dungSteps taken? 2. Right now I've got a BOOL that activates ...

Re: Edgescroll speed

Edit: Now I get it. I've been doing it all wrong.

I thought the 1 parameters was the X axis and the second the Y. Then the third being the speed.
Turns out the first is just the distance to the edge of your screen and the second is your speed.

Okay it's fixed now. Thank you!

Edgescroll speed

I'm trying to make a map where you can look around in by moving your cursor to the edge of the screen. However, right now the speed at which the map moves is really slow. The wiki says: If present, the third element is a function that adjusts the scrolling speed, based on how close to the pointer is...

It greys them out because it recognizes them as selected (due to the SetVariable already being the value it will be set to)

You could either reset gadgetUsed to zero when showing the screen or add selected False to each button
Thanks, I'll try that!

Frame greyed out text

So I've got a drop down menu and it's working fine. However, whenever you select an option, it becomes greyed out. Making players think the option is disabled eventhough it's not. Renpy automatically seems to remember what item was selected last and assign a new color to it. Is there a way to change...
