Bug with docstrings within init python

When using docstrings in functions defined inside init python modules, docstrings marked with three single quotes cause crash with unexpected indent, while docstrings with triple double quotes don't. This piece of code crashes the game (note the function called 'deck'): init -3 python: import pygame...

Re: Are image atlases available in renpy?

Thank you PyTom. I guess I'll work from there.

Are image atlases available in renpy?

Does renpy have any support for image atlases? Our current project has a lot of little UI elements that are now stored as separate files, and the images directory is clogged. Files like 'images/Button{0}state{1}style{2}.jpg' are all over the place and it'd be nice to tidy up a bit. What I want is to...

Re: Image is to blurry when I shrink it

That's actually a good idea. Unless you are skilled in Photoshop/Gimp/whatever mac people use, cleaning up the resizing artifacts may take immense time.

Re: NVL autoclear feature

roxygen, where exactly do you put this autoclear thing? Is it renpy.say or you define the custom Character class for a narrator? I'd really like to see the actual code, if possible. The following is not a technical point, but still. We have considered such a feature for our project, which is an IF g...

Re: A wild button appeared! [SOLVED]

Just the issue I had recently. The problem is that when the transform starts, your button has no coordinates. If my memory serves, style properties are ignored if the transform is supplied: they are expected to be defined inside transform, not in SL statement. And if the displayable has no user-defi...

Re: Moving displayable upon action

Thank you, I've got it working. There are a few details I had to adjust (like throw Hide actions to timer screen and fiddling with coordinate variables), but overall idea is great.

Re: Thoughts on "Game Overs"

I think it has to do with how "game-y" the game is. Doubleplusgood point. Game over isn't just a bad ending, it's "you cannot play the game well enough, try harder" kind of thing. Since regular VN doesn't really have that much gameplay, it cannot punish players for the lack of skill. You didn't man...

Re: Moving displayable upon action

Thanks philat, I got this working (although I had to write a transform that takes into account both old and new coordinates), but stumbled into the next problem. My code (in Travel action) hides map screen after ship coordinates have been updated, so the transform is actually shown only when the scr...

Moving displayable upon action

I have this issue with the imagemap: it is literally a map, and has a number of visitable points. The one you are currently at is marked by a little ship icon, and clicking on any adjacent point is updating some game data and moving the icon. However, the ship is moved instantaneously, while I'd lik...

Re: python callbacks for saving and loading

Yeah, matter of fact I do just init displayables whenever I need (after label start), wrap them in transforms and do not even directly touch render outside the rendering methods. I fixed the issue and this is how I think I done it (in case it's useful for someone). I think the problem is not in thos...

Re: Right click mouse button?

'mousebutton_3' is always a right button, don't worry about that. For mac people just make sure whatever key is usually expected to do your thing (Esc, I guess?) to actually do it.

Re: How to Get Mouse Position?

The easiest approach for your creator-defined displayables will be probably like this: put all the drawing into render (and make sure all objects on screen know their position, probably by wrapping them in transforms). Then put all the gameplay logic into event() method, which gets called with event...

Re: python callbacks for saving and loading

Just adding another use case where explicit callback may be necessary. In our game the player ends up with a bunch of procedurally generated objects in his inventory. Of course, those are instances of a class that contains object data, displayable among them. Those objects are integral to the game, ...
