Re: Writer, editor, and proofreader for hire! {Paid} [Open]

I recently hired PenDragon to do a bit of proofreading work along with a continuation of an existing script that was incomplete at the time. Bottom line-- the work was absolutely amazing and excellent quality. She was easily able to match the style of the pre-existing script and corrected a number o...

Aligning text objects to the left

I've been struggling with trying to figure out how to align multiple lines of text to the left. I've built a terminal emulator for use in my game, but for some reason, whenever I use '\n', the following line of text will appear centered just below the first line. This is the code I have currently fo...

Writer and Translator

Hey, everyone! After writing on my own for a few years, I figured I'd offer up my services for you nice folks here on the Lemma Soft Forums. My current area of study is computer engineering, but I'm confident enough in my ability as an author to write just about anything you throw at me. Researching...

Re: Highlighting Text for Choice Menu Options

In case anyone was looking for a fix to a similar issue, I ended up solving this one on my own. In screens.rpy, go down to the Choice screen. The bottom part of that function, at least for me, looks something like this: init -2: $ config.narrator_menu = True style menu_window is default style menu_c...

Re: Center A Dynamic Player's Name

Shoot, looks like I was able to fix it on my own. To be fair, I'd been working on it for a while! Anyway, here's my fix: In screens.rpy, I modified the x and y components of the who id for both window variants under the Say screen: if who: text who id "who" xpos 120 ypos 17 xalign 0.5 ...and, of cou...

Center A Dynamic Player's Name

When defining a dynamic character instance for the player, I used the following code: define pl = DynamicCharacter('plyr', color="#ffcc3e", ctc="right_thingy", ctc_position="fixed", who_xalign=0.5) When setting the name, I use this: $ plyr = renpy.input("What is your name?", length=14) $ plyr = plyr...

Centering Who Text

I'm trying to figure out whether or not it's possible to center the player's name in the Who box. Ordinarily, I'd just find the exact x-coordinates, but there are a few dynamic characters that rely on user input for their names, so the lengths will more often than not be different from the default. ...

Highlighting Text for Choice Menu Options

Is it possible to make it so that, as opposed to changing the image for a container or box of a choice option to a hover variant, the text attributes can be changed when hovered over instead? Been fiddling around with this for a short while and I'm not sure exactly how I'd achieve this. Thanks in ad...

How to change the load screen background based on the menu

Hey all! So, the load screen I'm currently using doesn't occupy the entire size of the window and leaves a great deal of alpha space that allows the player to see the game going on behind it. This works perfectly in-game, but is causing that tiled background when its pulled up at the title screen. I...

I'm trying to figure out how to best hide the Quick Menu while a certain character is speaking, but have had no luck. Here's the code I have for the character definition: define n = Character(None, window_background="images/GUI/Prologue_textbox_small.png", what_xalign=0.5, what_ypos=60, q_menu=False...

Re: Custom Textbox Issue

Figured out the root of the issue. I had an extraneous line of code in options.rpy that was throwing everything off. Thanks anyway!

Custom Textbox Issue

Hey all! So I've been trying to figure out this issue for a while now with no success: I'm working on a game that uses two types of textboxes and, for whatever reason, every time I use a custom textbox, the values keep changing. Here's the code I have for the example character. Every subsequent use ...

Setting up the Date Indicator

Hey, all! So, I've been racking my brain trying to figure out how to get the in-game date indicator to display properly. This is the code I have for it so far: screen dateandtime: add "GUI/date_back.png": xpos 940 ypos 0 text "April": xpos 1000 ypos 50 size 28 outlines [(2,color('#0009'),1,1)] text ...
