Re: problem with persistent data

Your issue was that you forgot to add persistent. to the front of your variable when defining / creating it.

The variable you defined:

Re: How to make player lose health if they view a screen?

You should take the python out of the screen and instead add it as an action when the screen is opened. One button can run multiple actions by separating them with a comma.

Also would be worth adding () to the end of your screen as this is needed for optimisation.

Re: Ren'Py 7.4.6 Released

I just updated renpy to 7.4.6.1693 today and I can't get any projects to open with atom. It was working just fine with the previous release I was using.

I've switched to the prerelease 7.4.7.1838 and the issue has disappeared.

There is this, a tool tip that follows the mouse.

For adding images and styling the text, you can see an example in the first reply.

Re: Is it possible to have too many images?

the biggest game I've seen was around 20gb. ? I thought Ren'Py had a soft upper size limit of 2GB. A few examples to demonstrate what I mean: https://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=36047&p=395814#p395814 https://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=44383&p=456896#p456896 htt...

Re: Any python/ren'py gurus coul help with dragonbones bindings?

I believe pytom has plans for a system similar. The Model displayable may be able to do this in future.


I think you can achieve it now though, using ATL and layeredimage though it is a fair bit of work depending on how much animation you need.

Re: Is it possible to include a menu chunk into an existing menu, like this?

You could also make your own menu screen. The menu is just the choice screen with the text and arguments passed to it that it constructs buttons from and assigns actions.

Re: Saves loading in the wrong place?

First thing I would do is try the "clear persistent data" button in the launcher before test playing your game followed by the "force recompile" button.

Re: The legality of using movie quotes in a commercial game

Keep in mind the fair use law (which applies in America only, but other countries have similar laws, such as fair dealing)

Don't forget that fair use in itself has a bunch of restrictions and requirements you must meet and it has nothing to do with being 'fair'

Re: Problem with custom GUI in main_menu

The main_menu is a screen that has the contents of another screen inside it, specifically the game_menu screen.
You need to make your adjustments within the game_menu screen for it to reflect across all screens that use the game_menu screen.

Re: [UNRESOLVED] I need a way to become a Ren'py Style & Text_Style expert within 60 minutes tops, please help.

If you know what you are doing, styling can take as little as a few minutes. If you don't, this can be several times longer but there is a tutorial in the documentation as well as (if limited in examples) the tutorial game packaged with ren'py. For what is worth, I'm going to eventually release some...
