Re: Optimizing music?

When you export your OGG files, you can choose the quality with a slider. Lower quality will not sound quite as good, but will be a smaller file size.

Re: Keep Textbox From Disappearing Between Dialogue

Hey, if you're using config.say_attribute_transition, then make sure you're also using say_attribute_transition_layer = "master", like this in your options.rpy

Code: Select all

define config.say_attribute_transition = Dissolve(0.5, alpha=True)
define config.say_attribute_transition_layer = "master"

Re: A newbie question about inbuilt themes

Probably the easiest way to do this would be to create a blank game where all you change is the GUI theme. Then whenever you want to make a new game using this theme, you can copy all its GUI data in. If you really wanted the Ren'py GUI to show your custom theme, you would need to modify the Ren'Py ...

Re: Recommended Text Editor (other than Atom)

I really like Visual Studio Code also. I switched from Atom a year ago and haven't looked back. Its syntax highlighting and git integration is really helpful.

Re: Visual Novels for children?

My kids played Magical Diary and my own game, Our Personal Space around age 10 or so... though both of those have some light romance. My kids made a very short VN about a magical LEGO, The Life Brick , and my daughter recently converted her short CYOA book into a voiced visual novel (target age is a...

Re: [SOLVED] Can text hyperlinks take arguments?

Hey, if you want to use that, you'll need to paste in the python block from hell_oh_world. That's the code that tells Ren'py to pass interpret actions in hyperlinks as Ren'Py code. Is this what you want, or do you just want a regular hyperlink?

Lint warning when using Cycle block

I'm using cycle blocks to choose between several options, but Lint is giving me this warning: Didn't properly report what the next statement should be. I couldn't find any documentation on cycle blocks other than the patreon post here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/three-creator-27255150 As far as I...

Re: An error occurs when exporting to Android

These are just warnings, so if the build failed, it's probably not from this but from a different error.

In programming a "WARNING" is usually something you shouldn't use but it should still work. This is different from an "ERROR" which means something definitely will not work.

Re: Super basic question on calling other scripts

You can put the code in any file with .rpy at the end and Ren'Py will read it. It actually doesn't care what any of your files are called; it puts all the .rpy files into one big thing and then runs code from there. So usually you will download .rpy files and put them in a project, or copy and paste...

Re: Android name app

Have you checked your options.rpy? There's a few different name variables used there, such as config.name and build.name

Re: Making the WHO on a say screen a textbutton while keeping its who_color?

Thank you, this is exactly what I was trying to do! I didn't know you could use buttons this way (I've only used textbuttons and imagebuttons), but it makes sense (and also helps solve a different problem I had). Many thanks!

[SOLVED] Making the WHO on a say screen a textbutton while keeping its who_color?

I just added a Bios section to my game, where it has a little bio for every character in the game. I want the player to be able to click on the name of anyone speaking and have it jump to their entry in the bio. This part is actually working fine. However, now that the name of the speaker is a textb...

Re: Can text hyperlinks take arguments?

Thank you, this is exactly what I wanted!

I did have to change the action to be changing the screen variable that the screen uses to decide which person to display instead of showing the screen directly, but then it worked perfectly.

[SOLVED] Can text hyperlinks take arguments?

Hey, I was looking for documentation on the text hyperlinks, but so far the only thing I've found is in the Changelog . I would like to pass arguments to a screen using hyperlinks, but that doesn't seem to be working. I have a contact list screen that takes the name of the person to show, so I'd lik...
