Re: How important are sound fx and music?

I have one thing on the Google Play store which I made with Ren'Py. It isn't a VN of sorts, but rather a demonstration build of a gui I made available freely. I'd have to say, music isn't important to it at all, but it still feels odd having complete silence while running through it. I always wonder...

Re: Renpy quiz

An easier way would be to simply have a variable for "A" answers, "B" answers, etc. Then use the choice menu to increment the chosen option by +1 each time it is selected. When the quiz reaches the results screen you can show which option was most selected or a percentage or whatever, based on those...

Re: Get that thing off your chest... Now...

My phone just got updated to Android 9 from Android 8.1 (was 8.0 when I bought it) I... Absolutely hate this "update", so many features were removed or made user unfriendly and Sony's response is to install old versions of third party apps just to get back the functionality that was taken away from ...

Re: Help with out of date code (im.scale)

What you need to do is define an image with im.scale and use that as the image for the imagebutton. A bit like this: image myimage = im.scale("stuff", numbers) # then to use it imagebutton: idle myimage hover myimage #Etc #you can also leave out the : and just put the properties inline if you wish. ...

Re: Ren'Py 7.3.4 Released

You can edit the renpy common files to add an audio folder accessible from the launcher.
I added one myself back in 6.99, but unless Pytom adds it, you'll have to add it yourself every time you update because it gets overwritten.

I'll try to find which file you need to edit when I'm able to check.

Re: Can You Give The Player Prizes or Coins in Mini Games?

Yes, but it depends on how your minigame works. The general idea is when the player wins the minigame, you add some numbers to a variable. Then later you use that variable to determine if a player can afford an item. I'm not supposed to link this, as it is outdated, but the new documentation has no ...

Re: Confirmation after Menu selection

Alternatively, make each choice call a screen that explains what the choice does. The screen would have two options, proceed and choose something else. Clicking either would set a variable to the "_return" variable and return you to where you came from. Then you just need to check if the variable ma...

Re: Window show does nothing

You mention transitions, what transition? The scene transition?

I think I understand your issue, but I'm not sure.
A clearer idea of what is happening and what you want to happen, may help.
Can you make some screenshots showing what you do not want or photoshop a mock example of what you do?

Re: Quick Menu

Thank you very much :) I will be waiting for your help Thanks for being patient. I'd like to test my idea before passing it on (and confirm that the issue happens for me as well) as I've made mistakes in the past that have wasted people's time. Unfortunately, I am currently sick with a rather nasty...

Re: RenPy alarm(?)

On Windows you can use Task Scheduler system. On Linux you can use cron. Another option would be having another program running on background and checking if trigger conditions are met and main app is not running. I think its required by law to inform the user that these tasks are running in the ba...

Code: Select all

Thanks, that works well, however I don't really understand it.
Any idea why it won't work how I was previously doing it? Still seems to work in older copies of my project, so it isn't something thats changed in the renpy itself.

Interpolated text not displaying correctly, but only in one project

I've picked up a project that I stopped working on a couple of months ago and I've noticed an odd error. I have three music files that play during my game and when the music begins playing, I use renpy.notify to inform the player of what the song is called. In backups of this project, everything wor...
