Re: How do I get rid of a dialogue option?

Here, try something like this: label park_night_bench: default optiona = False default optionb = False "Here you are at a park bench." menu: "Option A" if not optiona: $optiona = True "You chose Option A." jump park_night_setup "Option B" if not optionb: $optionb = True "You chose Option B." jump pa...

Re: A Massive, Collaborative Visual Novel-- with a twist!

Hi, everyone. Sorry for running late. I didn't get any script updates, but I took the script of Part 1 and added character sprites to it. If you need the source files for the art, you can find them in the 'arts' folder of the game project. You can get the latest version of the project here: https://...

Re: A Massive, Collaborative Visual Novel-- with a twist!

So for the first few days, I'll do character art for Part 1 while I wait for the script of Part 2. (EDIT: Just to be clear, I'm fine with that, and I like that I'll get the chance to do character design.) Edel, just let me know when you've got something. Since I'm handling coding, I'll also handle f...

Re: How to hide namebox from narrator?

Was there a special reason you made the narrator a character? If you just write dialogue without a name, it's assumed to be the default narrator, and you won't get a namebox.

Re: A Massive, Collaborative Visual Novel-- with a twist!

Thanks, Divona.

I can handle coding for Team Two if nobody else shows up, and I don't mind being asked to do things for Team One.

I'd recommend Google Drive for hosting the project, since we don't really need fancy features like version history or forking, and using Drive is less technical.

Re: A Massive, Collaborative Visual Novel-- with a twist!

Hi, could I be added to the list? There used to be some old websites I visited, "Impromanga" and "Improfanfic", that artists signed up for pretty much what's being described here. I'd love a chance to do this for a VN. I'm probably better as a writer/programmer, but I know enough about art that I wo...

Re: Arrays not affected by rollback?

I had a problem like that a little while back - I solved it when I realized that I originally defined the variables in an 'init:' block. Making sure they were defined as 'default' solved my problem. (Note: If you're doing serious Python coding, you might need to declare the variable twice - once as ...

Re: Taking a screenshot that isn't actually seen?

Unless you specifically want an image that can be seen outside the game, it might be enough to just write a function that defines a Composite, and then store your Composites in game variables until later.

Re: Live Composite and Text

While images are defined before the game starts, you can create displayables at any time. python: def create_marker(chibi,name): lc = LiveComposite( (0,0), (0,0), "images/map/map_info_hover.png", (40,70), chibi, (0,0), "images/map/map_info_normal.png", (0,0), Text(name) ) return lc You can also inse...

Re: Is there any way to define button styles in choice menus

If you want to use a screen, you can get what you want with a little bit of Python code. This code takes the regular choice screen and adds a few lines: screen choice(items): window: style "menu_window" xalign 0.5 yalign 0.5 vbox: style "menu" spacing 2 for caption, action, chosen in items: python: ...

Re: Can it be done? (Issue with fonts)

Yes, you can use the configuration variable 'say_menu_text_filter', and write a Python function that will edit text before you display it. You can use it to insert different font tags for the characters you want to replace: init python: def quotereplace(txt): new_txt = txt.replace("'","{font=someoth...

Re: Need function/transformation to fade between two sprites

The key behind side images is that they use image tagging. In Ren'Py, you can give a tag to an image, and any image you give with the same tag replaces the old image. The 'as' clause in the show statement is useful for retagging an image: show bill at left as leftchar show dave as leftchar with Diss...

You can add extra layers to your Ren'Py game by changing what's in config.layers. # Add a "backdrop" layer behind the master layer init python: config.layers = [ 'backdrop', 'master', 'transient', 'screens', 'overlay' ] # Later in your script.. show layer master at ship_sway show cloudy_sky onlayer ...

Re: Flash -> Ren'Py Exporter [v 1.4, 26/4/2013]

Hi, TARDISam.

My guess is that your artist, since he's using the later versions of Flash, is also using the newer tweening system. The exporter can handle "classic" tweens, but not the newer kind.
