Re: Making a pop-up screen to show statistics

Thanks for replying gas. Unfortunately I have never used quick menu and I don't know where to start. I thought I could copy from a thread like this - https://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewtopic.php?t=40657 but it all looks strange to me and I think I will just get myself into trouble :( I appreciate...

Making a pop-up screen to show statistics

Hi, I want to add a pop up screen to my game to show game statistics. Ideally with a button on the main game screen that, when pressed, opens a screen where I can list the player’s variables and show the current value for each variable. Unfortunately I don’t know what to do! I have looked at a few o...

Re: [SOLVED] Try to load game but get "uncaught exception"

Thanks for all the good ideas. I reloaded my backup (aren’t they great when you need them!) and then progressively fed in the new lines. That way I found the problem, in some lines I had copied from an earlier part of the game. In the earlier part when I wrote: call mysteryscene the implementation o...

Re: Try to load game but get "uncaught exception"

Thanks very much for the suggestions: • I have worked through my text for misplaced indents and label duplications and have not found any yet (although I did find a couple of other errors that I’d previously missed!) • I looked for _menu, but I cannot find it and it is not something I use. • Good id...

Try to load game but get "uncaught exception"

Hi people, I have just added content to a game I am working on. The game has behaved well until today when I hit load. Rather than it starting the game, I got the following message: I'm sorry, but an uncaught exception occurred. After initialization, but before game start. File "renpy/common/00voic...

Re: Recovering script from a build distribution

Thanks guys! That works well. I can open the script reader in Ren'py and then use it to open the script.rpy in the build and I get a full, editable script. Fantastic!

Recovering script from a build distribution

Oh silly, silly me :( I made a small project in Ren’py and when I thought I had finished I made the build distributions. Then I decided I would like to make some modifications. I went to delete the build distributions.... but I deleted the Ren’py project file by mistake! Is there any way that I can ...

Re: Help with uncaught exception: '_menu' is not defined

Thanks, I managed to fix it and save all my work :)

I could not find anything that I considered an exact duplication in the new label that caused the crash, but I reworked it until it behaved itself.

I appreciate your advice!

Help with uncaught exception: '_menu' is not defined

Oh dear, for the first time I have an “uncaught exception” whatever that is. I have been setting up a game and without warning this message came up: I'm sorry, but an uncaught exception occurred. After initialization, but before game start. File "renpy/common/00voice.rpy", line 360, in voice_interac...

Re: Help please - Trying to get a simple blink animation to work

Thanks Kivik, good information.

I guess I was also hoping that I could add some code to blur the transition between images. A bit like 'with dissolve' can do in other situations.

Re: Help please - Trying to get a simple blink animation to work

Ok, so my blink works! Now I am moving on to having a character wave his arm. I can write the code to make the waving animation (as below), but the result looks very jerky. image waving: "01.jpg" 0.2 "02.jpg" 0.2 "03.jpg" 0.2 "04.jpg" 0.2 "03.jpg" 0.2 "02.jpg" 0.2 repeat Is there any additional code...

I have set up a simple trial. I have added images 1 and 2 to my image file as pngs. They ...
