Re: Game keeps starting for no reason.

Some basic troubleshooting steps. If your code is doing something for no reason whatsoever that you can see, attempt to isolate where the strange behavior is happening. When something really crazy is going on I often find it handy to put in a ton of say statements so that I'm stepping through every ...

Re: Centered text on Custom Choice Menu

Have you tried tinkering with the gui.choice_button_borders settings? Adjusting the borders may allow you to push the contents around a bit.

(Slightly hacky solution, but to do better I'd want to actually have your code and art to tinker with)

Re: Disable ctc on splashscreen

Hard pauses will prevent clickthroughs, but should be used very sparingly because they make players angry. An extremely brief hard pause to make sure someone hasn't double-clicked by accident, fine. Making people sit through thirty seconds of unskippable logo splashscreens, though, people are just ...

Re: imagemap method of GUI

Personally I end up with a ton of different old versions of RenPy installed for various reasons. The easy way to get older versions of those files is to download an older RenPy installer, I'm pretty sure they're still available. I can't answer questions about imagemaps because I'm always so sad that...

Re: A controversial question (love interest that look 15 when they're 22)

It's not illegal, but it IS controversial, in the sense that it can create controversy for your game, since some people will object and complain about it.

Re: Where can I post this?

Okay. There's not a whole lot of market for that (I have bought such a project once, it does happen, but it's not common) so I don't think there really is an official right place to post. Option 1: Post in the 'Other' subforum in services for hire. Pros: anyone looking there is more likely to be a s...

Re: Change the position of the Back button

Sorry, it is difficult to explain code situations with a slight language barrier. I'm having trouble understanding what you mean, exactly. I can see that the text is misaligned in the screenshot that you've posted, but I can't see what that screenshot is meant to be of, or what code is drawing it. Y...

Re: Where can I post this?

Selling off in what way? Is the game finished and you're selling the finished project, or are you trying to actually sell the rights to a project in development to get someone else to finish it, or what?

Re: Character name blinking with each new line of dialogue

Unfortunately the solutions for this problem that I'm personally aware of are rather complicated and probably not where you want to go for your first VN. If you can master ATL, you can build custom animations for changing between expressions which will run while the text is being displayed. Therefor...

Re: Change the position of the Back button

Hello, I had a problem, I placed the text next to the main menu, but it looks uneven in the mobile version, how can I fix it and attach it to the menu? What code are you currently using? What does it currently look like, and what do you want it to look like? RIght now, when you say you "placed the ...

Re: Character name blinking with each new line of dialogue

I'm confused, are the say/who windows tied with the in-game sprites, or are they separate? They are separate. However, you're using a transition to change your sprite. During that transition, no say text is being shown, so the name blinks out of existence. If you remove the 'with qd' from your spri...

Re: Is there a way to set the python calendar to a specific time mid game

It's possible to specify a new date, but at that point, why are you using someone's code that is entirely designed for moving forward by increments? You could just use your own date variable and set it whenever you wanted. You don't need a GameTime object to have a date. You can set it to anything y...

Since Electra is looking for a heroine, is there any hint of yuri romance here?

Re: Is there a way to set the python calendar to a specific time mid game

Okay. That's someone's specific code and has nothing to do with python in general (this is why I was very confused by you asking about "the python calendar"). It looks like the entire point of their code is to let you advance time by specific increments. If advancing time by increments is not what y...

Re: Changing the "Are you sure you want to quit?" box for an imagemap

obligatory: is there a specific reason you want to use an imagemap instead of redesigning the box and buttons themselves, or is it just because you found a really old topic somewhere that claimed imagemaps were easy and/or the only way to change things? :) What version of RenPy are you using? The be...
