Delay on video playback?

Hi everyone! When I use a movie in my game, there's a small delay before it plays, so for example if I transition to a movie backdrop, for a split second you'll see the transparent background before the movie starts playing, meaning I can't get a smooth transition into the movie, is there any way ar...

Re: [Question] How do we build expansions or DLCs for our existing Visual Novel?

If you want to make an episodic game you'll need to look into using Persistent Data (or more precisely, Multi-Game Persistence): https://www.renpy.org/doc/html/persiste ... ersistence

Re: Ren'Py Gripes

Hi PyTom, thanks for the reply, I've actually worked out how to recreate it, it's the code from the documentation (to transition side images smoothly). transform same_transform(old, new): old new with Dissolve(0.2, alpha=True) define config.side_image_same_transform = same_transform If the code abov...

Re: Ren'Py Gripes

In-game when you click the middle mouse button (or wheel) it removes the dialogue box etc, so you can view the image on screen clearly, that's cool, but when you click again to bring the dialogue box back, often the side images will not reappear.

Re: Lots of coding and VN related questions

You can use python in Ren'py quite easily: init python: # in an init block (create functions etc here) def vooweeliify( s ): return "".join( [ s[k]+s[k+1].lower()*2 if len(s) > k+1 and s[k+1] == s[k] else s[k]+s[k].lower()*2 if s[k].lower() in 'aeiou' else s[k] for k in range( len( s ) ) ] ) label ...

Re: Side image is not showing up?

Code: Select all

define jo = Character('John', image="jo")
image side jo = "joavatar.png"
This is how I display side images, seems to work for me :)

Re: Typewriter SFX problem.

Ah, that was what I was getting wrong I guess :D OK, so I've put it in the right place now, replacing the old two lines, and it kinda works but there's some unexpected side effects, for example, sometimes you click to enter the menu, but then after a second it will automatically exit the menu for no...

Re: Typewriter SFX problem.

Thanks again for trying to help, Philat, but I've given that code a try and it doesn't have the effect I was hoping for. With your code, I press the right mouse button and no menu shows up at all... but what I was hoping to do was just stop the typewriter sound when a menu is opened, I'm sure there ...

Typewriter SFX problem.

Hi guys, I'm using the code below to give my in-game dialogue the 'typewriter' sound effect. init python: def callback(event, **kwargs): if event == "show": renpy.music.play("SFX/Text.ogg", channel="typewriter", loop="True") elif event == "slow_done" or event == "end": renpy.music.stop(channel="type...
