Re: Bug: Crash at menu choice (missing file?)

Holy dang, you're on the money. Should I encourage them to re-download the game? Should I also update RenPy and make a new build? Both and also another thing?
(btw THANK YOU)

Re: Bug: Crash at menu choice (missing file?)

I checked pretty much everything - gui, options, screens, etc. - and couldn't find any mention of that file. Additionally I'm a bit perplexed since it seems to imply a folder that I never had - "_theme_glow/" - so I'm not sure what might be happening there. I should add I also played through the gam...

Bug: Crash at menu choice (missing file?)

I posted my game The Passenger ( free here! ) on itch.io just over a month ago, and I got a bug report today that I've been having a devil of a time figuring out. The user was kind enough to include the entire error log, but I find it particularly confusing since it references an image file that is ...

Re: Hotspots: How to remove button image when not on a hotspot?

HOLY YES Per I think that did it. I have been scratching around for something exactly like that and you handed me a solution. THANK YOU! :D

Hotspots: How to remove button image when not on a hotspot?

I'm working on a very hotspot-heavy project (basically, where vbox work would kind of be impossible) and my biggest problem is that an empty button hangs around when one of the hotspots is not selected. I'm sure there's a proper way to do this with a combo of "unhover" and "Hide," but all my searche...

Re: Menus and Autosave Issues

EXCELLENT! Nearly there - it didn't take a screenshot when it saved (but it DID SAVE!), and I know there's code for that SOMEWHERE. Might you have it on hand? EDIT: Holy craziness. I checked this thread and found that if you delete the persistent stuff, it DOES appear with a screenshot. That's utter...

Re: Menus and Autosave Issues

OK - things seem like they're looking good so far (THANK YOU!!) - now the only element remaining is possibly forcing an autosave after the puzzle so there's no risk of error (also, seems a good place to have an autosave anyway). HOWEVER: - hunting for threads on autosaves have yielded little (mostly...

Re: Menus and Autosave Issues

Thanks for the link - I attempted Jump and it SEEMS like it's working, and I will seriously headdesk and laugh myself into insanity if THAT is the thing that works ;) And I'm perplexed because I do remember attempting to do this before, and having RenPy scream at me. But if I can get this kicking by...

Re: Menus and Autosave Issues

So the length of the keypad puzzle has less to do with the complexity of the puzzle itself and more how it's presented - likely I could revamp it to have a single puzzle presentation that just ran each selection through multiple if/else fall-throughs. I'll try to map it out gameplay-wise: Puzzle scr...

Re: Menus and Autosave Issues

...aaaaand I suppose a supplementary question to this would be how to set up the special menu-clicky buttons (skip and home, or at least home) for these puzzles. I have a sinking feeling they'll need to be smacked into the puzzle itself. which makes me a sad panda. (Although I guess skip is less a w...

Re: Menus and Autosave Issues

Sorry, apologies for my end-of-day lack of clarity! Here's the deal. I have a game that swaps between choices and puzzles frequently. The puzzles causing the problems are variants on a keypad entry sequence, which I derived from the code linked here: https://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewtopic.php?f...

Menus and Autosave Issues

So right now I'm handling a number of puzzles in my game with menu-style implementation instead of hotspots or choices. This works great EXCEPT it's entirely screwing up the autosave system - even with choices implemented later, loading the autosave of that choice will still bounce it back to the mo...

Re: Text Box Change Based on Choices

You likely have a couple different options here, and you can mix and match for what seems best - here's a bunch of examples from people cooler than me! ONE: swap out the background for choices with another image. http://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewtopic.php?f=51&t=9812 TWO: drop in images showing ...

Re: How to make menu choice disabled?

Legit that is 100% how I made disabled menu choices work.
The sad part is how long I banged my head against it before I was like WAIT I CAN JUST MAKE IT LOOP OH MY GOD I AM SO LAME
It's a great fix, though. Basically seamless ;)
