Re: Quick Time Event

True, but I figure this is easier in terms of basic visualization for beginners.

Re: Quick Time Event

Add a counter. Go to while cont == 1: call qte_setup(0.5, 0.5, 0.01, renpy.random.choice(arr_keys), renpy.random.randint(1, 9) * 0.1, renpy.random.randint(1, 9) * 0.1) # to repeat the qte events until it is missed and change it to $ counter = 0 #counter variable while cont == 1 and counter < 10: cal...

Quick Time Event

1MPGdWLSmtU So, I've scraped up a bare-bones quick time event (qte) sort of thing - where you have to press a button before time runs out - in a (I hope) reusable way (It's written a bit like a function, so all you really have to do is carry over two screens and a label, and you're good to go!). Be...

Re: Ren'Py 7.0.0 Prereleased

Firstly, massive congrats to all involved -- Renpy really has come a long way. Secondly, this just might be my excuse to jump right back into Renprogramming. I've got a few old projects that could stand to be completely remade. I'd just like to know if there's an easy way to update everything, or am...

Re: Trying to update, getting an error.

That path name just looks wrong, mixing all those slash formats together (but, y'know, Windows isn't well known for fantastic path handling).

If it's not that, the file could be in use by another program, moved, or blocked by permissions. Can you try to locate the file using the path given?

Re: Stupid "global name '_menu'" issue

It doesn't quite mean it's not actually there--my bad assumption is that it never reaches that script to load the name.

It's usually caused by a duplicate in one or any of your scripts, or even incorrect indentation.

Re: Renpy Objective programming 101 help

Also does anyone have any tips on file size management? I'm barely done creating a demo and I'm already past 1000 lines in my code.
Separate it into different files: https://www.renpy.org/doc/html/language ... html#files
Also, software architecture. Prolly #4 priority in Software Engineering.

Re: Adding sound to text like a typewritter

Most likely cause is that there's a delay/silence in the beginning of the mp3 file.

...I think.

Re: Centered with NVL window

That odd, actually. Using: define na = Character(None, what_yalign=0.5, kind=nvl) (with or without other tags) gives me a slightly lower than top position. Can't figure out why it's not centering, where it's counterpart (xalign) works just fine. In the old gui, it's not even budging. I haven't worke...

Re: Side image not showing on Android

It could be that Android can't parse the image (size, type, resolution, etc), but I'm thinking that maybe it's just the emulator. Try exporting what you have to an Android app and see the results.

Re: ...please help, beyond triggered.

the file (the new button image) is actually in JPEG, not png. how does this change anything?
It changed the name. It was looking for background.png, but there was only background.jpg. It didn't show the extension because windows explorer was in tile view.

Glad it help.

Re: weird error

Are you sure you caught all the duplicates? The traceback points to: File "C:\Users\Jaime\Downloads\renpy-6.99.11-sdk\renpy\script.py", line 890, in report_duplicate_labels if renpy.parser.report_parse_errors(): If you find that duplicate, and it throws the error, that line should change to show the...

Re: ...please help, beyond triggered.

Hmm...my first instinct is to ask if you're sure you're using .png, and not .jpg. Or, delete persistent data (it's the Renpy equivalent to turning off and on the machine, in my opinion). Otherwise, was this problem only happening once you replaced the files? A shot in the dark says it could be a cor...

Re: Question on labels screens and flow control

This is the sort of thing I'd love to see in the documentation. More common use case topics. Scrubbing through the docs right now is painful when you aren't sure exactly what you are looking for. Definitely look into the cookbook. If we filled the doc with more than just the bare examples there--gi...
