Re: Possible to create transforms mid code?

Both brilliant pieces of advice. That function looks worth digging into in earnest. In terms of the way i structure the movement, its based on a grid and the path is a list of grid co-ordinates.

Possible to create transforms mid code?

So i have a need to make transforms that have an numerous changes of direction. I need to be able to create transforms to show movement paths, but since the route taken is not decided until the start point and end point of any given path is determined it is impossible to define a transform in an ini...

Re: problem with RPG battle engine

I'll say to you the same thing i say to everyone that wants to have some sort of battle system. There is no magic cut and paste solution. You need to learn at least basic python and apply it. Here is a good series. Watch up to at least episode 4 (i'd love to reccomend going beyond that, but honestly...

Re: Question about stats reset after the battle

Again, class instances hold functions. Simply put two functions in the Item class. Equip(self, wearer) and Unequip(self, wearer). All you gotta do is have a list of in the player class that stores the class instances of the items he has equipped. Here's some code from a stat adjusting effect class i...

Re: Question about stats reset after the battle

No, no that is not the case. You build the reset function into the class. The whole point is that it reduces code significantly.

Re: Question about stats reset after the battle

It looks like you are using a class. Classes support functions inside themselves. All you need to do is define a stat reset function inside the Player() class and then call it. I've no idea what you've structured you class like but imagine you'll need something like this. class Player(object): def _...

Re: Move an image that is already shown on screen...

There's also a slightly simpler method that involves using a while loop.

Code: Select all

init python:
    toggle = True

label start:
    while toggle == True:
        show Example_image at Position1
    else:
        show Example_image at Position2

    $ renpy.pause(20)

    $ toggle = False

Re: Move an image that is already shown on screen...

There was a question very similar to this asked not too long back. The example code i use in this uses a screen, but it should translate over to good ol' renpy show commands (you can use variables with the "show command just like you can with the "at" command in screens) https://lemmasoft.renai.us/f...

Re: Gameplay For An RPG Horror

You will need an advanced knowledge of python in order to use ren'py to do what you want.

Re: Gameplay For An RPG Horror

Take it from someone that uses renpy to do sprite movement as my main function. Renpy is a bad choice for the type of game you are describing. Milky is correct. RPGmaker is a better bet.

Re: Imagemap - show naame

hmmm, all i can say is that an imagemap is a very old and inefficient way of going about things. I suggest you look up screens.

Re: How i can make gacha?

The correct response to "I don't know how to do this", is "I will learn how to do this". That is the purpose of this forum. It is not a place where the correct response to "I do not know how to do this" is "I will get someone else to do this". But since you insist: init python: my_response = "don't ...

Re: How to use transformations on pre-existing windows.

When you say windows, do you mean screens? If so, you can set the transform to a variable and change the transform attached to it, the use renpy.restart_interaction() Simple example: init: transform number_one: xpos 0.5 ypos 0.5 linear 1.0 xpos 1.0 ypos 0.5 transform number_two: xpos 1.0 ypos 0.5 li...

Re: ATL vs Motion()

That thread you linked me to is super helpful. I'm not 100% sure of the purpose of the bezier_point function that you have defined in your code though.
