Re: Ren'Py Gripes

Sorry, but if your game is actually requiring a controller, it probably goes beyond the standard of a VNL, and so you're messing with the wrong engine. Yes, my game does go beyond the standard of a VNL. It does not require a controller, but providing Full Controller Support meets a higher quality s...

Re: Kinetic Text Tags (Moving, waving, bouncing, shaking, replacement, style changes and more!)

Slay the Spire and Monster Train and the recent roguelike CCG deckbuilders do things like this to the text of the dynamic events. So, it's pretty awesome to see this implemented in Ren'Py, but I wish it was done through an .rpy file and not by modifying the engine's files. It's possible to create ne...

Re: [Developer Tool] Dynamic Value Adjuster

Hmm. Well, this isn't a tool for ATL transformations. When you are creating screens, sometimes you want to align certain elements that are not properly aligned. Maybe you don't know the correct pixel position, and doing trial and error can take much longer when saving and reloading the script, and l...

Ren'Py on MacOS Big Sur 11.0?

I got a report that a game crashed the person's OS. They just upgraded to Big Sur 11.0 this week. Are Ren'Py games working for this OS version already? The person said that the game crashed their OS, but that their computer is fine. (Note: I read the Wiki for Big Sur OS and it says that the OS updat...

Re: How to get the volume of an audio channel as a value to use in a screen

I'm actually happy to finally be able to help you with something, since you've helped me so many times in the past Imperf3kt. The problem you're experiencing is happening because Ren'Py will not automatically update values defined with "default" within a screen unless they are being modified by scre...

Re: Ren'Py Gripes

I've already worked out all of the kinks after a few dozen hours, thankfully. I also have the solution for you. The major problems arise when more than one screen is displayed. Example: MainScreen - Has key button action (Action) setup for most controller/keyboard/mouse input. Then, while MainScreen...

Re: My variable is resetting to 0 on load or game close.

Are you using 'show' for the screen, or 'call'? If you use 'call' then you're passing the control to the screen and eventually you need to use the Screen Action called Return() to go back to the labels. Until Ren'Py hits the next label in the script, the variables won't save. If you use 'call' then ...

Re: Ren'Py Gripes

This is the last I'll post complaining about controller support. Stuff I've programmed is literally not running. It works and then it stops working. I've debugged everything. Controller support for Ren'Py is broken and unreliable outside of the most simple cases. Since the engine is intended for Vis...

Re: Ren'Py Gripes

Thanks for the feedback, Kia. It would also be a huge help if the documentation at https://www.renpy.org/doc/html/keymap.html explained which button each of the Ren'Py buttons corresponds to on each possible controller (XBox, PS4, NS) since all controllers have their own names for the buttons. Relat...

Re: Ren'Py Gripes

I have some gripes to list... I give Ren'Py controller support a rating of 2 out of 10. It needs to be more intuitive for us developers. It should be nearly plug-and-play. As it is, I've had to ask three questions today regarding things that should be basic, in fact, they should be how the engine wo...

(Solved) How to run "focus_down" from config.keymap as a Screen Action?

I want controller support for LEFT/RIGHT/UP/DOWN to perform their normal focus_(direction) functionality as per config.keymap. However, I also want them to run other functions. In screens, I use: key "K_RIGHT" action Function(DoSomething) However, the moment I use the screen to take control of the K...

(Solved) How to Automatically Scroll Viewport when using Controller / Keyboard?

I have a viewport with a scrollbar and 5 rows of items. If you use left/right/down/up, it works perfectly fine, except only two of the 5 rows are visible. To see more, you'd have to normally scroll. However, I want the viewport to automatically scroll if I press DOWN and there are still rows below n...
