Re: Text Box Disappearing

The textbox is disappearing and reappearing because you're using dissolve. That's what that function is intended to do. Try fade or simply nothing instead. The textbox still disappears and the entire screen fades to black then fades from black with the new image. Like a magic trick. Nothing would w...

Re: Art Dumpage! Show your art ^^

This is the menus for my current project. I just had an idea and went with it. I used to draw on the frame of my old computer, so that was pretty much the entire inspiration. menu1.png The main idea was that the buttons would be on the frame while the contents of each menu would be on the screen. I ...

Text Box Disappearing

Whenever I change images (backgrounds, characters, screens) the dialogue text box disappears. Now I constantly use "With Dissolve" in my game since it's easier on my eyes. For example scene bg with Dissolve(.3) show dude with Dissolve(.3) dude "The textbox is showing." show dude sad with Dissolve(.3...

I will later write some basic example code to better explain what I mean, for now if you're interested do look into how to create your own python functions and objects, it will probably be really helpful.
Will do.
Thanks for the input.

Making a DanganRonpa Trial System (Opinions)

I'm looking for some opinions on developing a trial system like in DanganRonpa. Specifically the nonstop debates. I'm currently working on it already and this is what I've come up with so far with some help. How it works: Phase 1: (Intro) 1. Transitions from Dialogue to Debate [Done] 2. Showcases th...

Call If player right-clicked

Just a silly idea. I want to call a statement if the player right-clicked. Something like this. "Your inventory has been added to the pause menu." "Right click to open the pause menu." if [pressed right mouse button]: "I bet you just did it now. Perhaps you noticed the save menu too." else: "The pau...

Re: Editing About Screen

1. under 'vbox:', add 'xpos 200' (or what ever number give you a good result) 2. remove 'About' from 'use game_menu(_("About"), scroll="viewport"):' Thank you for your reply. My second problem is resolved. The solution to my first problem can work, but is there a way to put it in the absolute cente...

Editing About Screen

I'm blanking really bad on this one. I'm editing the pre-made screens. Two things I'm trying to accomplish. 1. I'd like to center the "About" screen's contents. 2. I want to remove the screen's title. (So for About, I want to remove the word About in the top-left corner.) I feel like I'm overlooking...

Re: Bringing Characters Back to Life

I've been brainstorming how to write my character's death and revival. So this is what I'm considering. There are a few things I wanted to avoid/keep. Those things being: 1. No Having the body disappear and everyone assume the character is dead. I and I think most audiences will never believe a char...

This episode of Trope Talk touches upon both character deaths and ways to bring the character back.
That video was what actually got me thinking about this subject. It's a good watch for sure.

Bringing Characters Back to Life

People die when they are killed, right? Well not always, sometimes they come back for one reason or another. I think we've all experienced something like this. You're enjoying a story, then one of the major characters die. You then grieve over them, and maybe cry. A lot of stories do this now more t...

Re: Evidence List, textbutton help

I found what works. $ evidence_list += [note2] $ evidence_list.remove(note) I forgot to mention that the first note was added in a previous chapter. All my chapters are in separate .rpy files. Because of that, Ren'Py couldn't find the note to remove. I basically have to refresh the list in the begin...

Re: Evidence List, textbutton help [SOLVED]

Just popping back here for a sec. I realized later on that I need to update certain pieces of evidence. So the solution I thought of was to do this. #The gang finds a note, but don't know who wrote it. #Later on they figure out who wrote it, thus requiring an update to the entry. $ evidence_list -= ...
