Re: Checking persistent data with a loop in a screen (Solved)

The problem with your “while” loop approach is that you’re building an expression as a string into “checkending”, but then your “If” is just looking at the string value itself. To take the approach you’re trying to do, you’d have to force Python to actually evaluate the string as an expression. In o...

Re: Ren'py support for 32-bit development environment?

32-bit support was dropped for Android, because all new Android apps have to be 64-bit. But AFAIK Ren’py still generates output compatible with 32-bit Windows and Linux systems.

Re: Changing screen modality

Are you trying to have it look like the user clicks somewhere and dialog progresses as if the image map was still there? If so, you could call the (modal) screen, have it jump to the label, and have the label use a “scene” statement to put up the same background the screen uses. The screen will have...

Re: On Hide ATL with Call Screen possible?

When the action is taken that would return from the screen, you could use an array of actions, hiding the screen first, then returning. I use this as a way of having “called” screens disappear with a transition, since you can pass a transition to the Hide.

Re: Reason why screen is not showing using a conditional and renpy.show_screen()?

Instead of screen city_map_screen: python: if day > 2: renpy.show_screen("game_gui") imagemap: why not screen city_map_screen: if day > 2: use game_gui imagemap: "use" is the "screen language way" of having one screen include another screen. https://www.renpy.org/doc/html/screens.html#use

Re: Which JDK to download for 7.2.0 ?

Either 8u201 or 8u202 should be fine. Note that two of those panels are for demos and samples - you don't want them. So you want the "Windows x64" package from either the first or third panels.

Re: A way to color certain choices?

No, it's not that bad - I just wanted to make sure that I was heading in the direction that you wanted. The thing you have to deal with is that colors aren't specified by names - they're specified by codes. So you need to do something like what I've shown before. Essentially, I create two variables ...

Re: A way to color certain choices?

So, just to make sure I understand what it is that you’re trying to do - when someone chooses “Red,” what you want is for the text of the menu to change to the corresponding color? Instead of (or in addition to) interpolating the name of the color via “[eyes]”? (Just want to make sure I understand t...

Re: A way to color certain choices?

If you typed it in your program exactly as you have it in your question, you’re missing an equal sign between “color” and the #

This should work. Do you want to post the code for a menu where it isn’t working?

Re: My Choice Menu doesn't refresh after it's shown (and it's very important to me that it does)

Just for clarity, “call screen x” puts screen x up on the screen, and then waits for the execution of a Return or Jump action. If (via a button, for example) you execute the action Return(), the screen will be removed and execution will continue with the statement right after the “call screen x” sta...

Re: My Choice Menu doesn't refresh after it's shown (and it's very important to me that it does)

I think that the core problem is that the menu has decided on its options, and is now waiting for an interaction from the user. (I.e. blocked, waiting for one of the buttons (IN THE MENU) to be pressed. In parallel, you have a screen that has been shown which updates the variable. But this action do...

Re: Suggestion: Could "say" auto clean up image tags?

That sounds like a nice feature.

I could also see value in the “minus” and “plus” syntax by themselves (i.e. without the save/restore functionality implied by the @ sign)

Re: [Solved] Renpy not recognizing JDK

The JAVA_HOME variable is used by a LOT of stuff to see if Java is installed (and to find it) but for some reason the installers don’t tend to set it. Never understood that, because it’s part of the Oracle documentation, as opposed to having been made up by the community or some such. Glad you’re up...

Re: Renpy not recognizing JDK

Just a guess, - in addition to have put the java bin directiory in the path, is JAVA_HOME set to the root of the Java install?

Re: Cropping an image repositions it? Why?

Well, where is the anchor point on the image? If it’s in the center, then cropping is going to change the upper left corner position, since the image will be smaller.
