You can try putting one in %APPDATA%, and one in game/saves, and Ren'Py should merge them.
I'll try that! You're the best ;)

Merge two persistent files?

Hi! I moved a project into a new project folder and updated my game on Steam, resulting in my users' lost of persistent "read text" from the old version (they cannot skip read text anymore, but all other persistent variables are saved fine). A friend on Discord told me that to retrieve the read text...

Re: Item Pop-up Notification Help?

Just to add to the other answers, you can use a timer with an action Hide("yourscreen") in the screen so that you won't have to copy and paste the pause and hide screen lines every time you show the screen. See: https://www.renpy.org/doc/html/screens.html#timer

Re: Label ignores screen and automatically selects imagemap options

You need to

Code: Select all

call screen bedroom
instead of

Code: Select all

show screen bedroom
Use call if you want to force an interaction (pause the game at the screen). Show allows it to appear while continuing to the next line, you don't have a next line after show screen therefore it continues out of the label.

Re: layeredimage with variable = "not defined"?

You need "hair_front_green" in quotes since it is defined as an image. Without quotes, it would look for a variable

Re: How could Achievements be wiped but not the Gallery?

Nice to know!!! I certainly needed this information before updating my game lol. I do wonder if we should post this reminder, as well as updates like being able to download the SDK now directly from the launcher, under the Steam Achievements Guide (somewhat outdated but extremely useful) for others ...

Another easier way is to use

Code: Select all

Show("game1_p1_5") 
instead, and give your screens a:

Code: Select all

modal True

https://www.renpy.org/doc/html/screen_actions.html#If
Something like this?

Code: Select all

If(someBool, true=SetVariable('thatVar', thatVar-1), false=None)
You can replace the None with any other action you want
