Re: [BUG] MultiPersistent data being wiped out

We looked into it further, and my friend reports that RenPy is WRITING MultiPersistent data in binary mode, but READING MultiPersistent data in text mode. This could potentially be the problem, when it comes to newline characters in particular; that said, we haven't been able to fully reproduce the ...

Re: [BUG] MultiPersistent data being wiped out

An update: it's hitting more of our users than we thought. It seems like the problem only occurs when the second game is run, saves data and then is CLOSED, before being reopened. That is, when the game is run the first time, everything works perfectly as long as the app is still running. Once the a...

[BUG] MultiPersistent data being wiped out

We're experiencing an issue where some users are having their MultiPersistent data wiped out. We currently have two games. Users who play the second game have noticed that data from the first game is initially being pulled in correctly (that is, READING works perfectly fine); however, when the secon...

Re: BUG: Last choice menu Side Image Portrait flashes on-screen after fade-in/fade-out

I have replicated this bug in a minimal game and attached it to this forum post, in case that helps.

BUG: Last choice menu Side Image Portrait flashes on-screen after fade-in/fade-out

I'm experiencing a minor graphical problem which I believe may be the result of a bug. A little context: My game ends with a fade-to-black, followed by a fade-in on a final splash screen (which depends on the user's actions over the course of the game). There's a pause after the fade-in, then the wo...

[SOLVED] "show" fails on the "overlay" layer (solution: use another layer)

D'oh! That's what I get for glancing at the documentation without actually reading it.

Solved the problem by adding a new layer between "screens" and "overlay" and using that instead:

Code: Select all

define config.layers = ['master', 'transient', 'screens', 'foreground', 'overlay']
Thank you!!

[SOLVED] "show" fails on the "overlay" layer (solution: use another layer)

Context: I have a little animation play out, and while it's playing out, I want the player character's side portrait to be visible, going through a few different emotions in response to the animation, even though the player character isn't speaking at that moment. For the most part, I can use "show"...

Re: [SOLVED, with a question remaining] Use variable to set side image mood

Ah, I see what you mean -- it seems strange to me that there's a functionality in the "RenPy language" (if that's the appropriate term for statements like zoe happy "I'm happy!" ) that isn't exposed in the Python function. I might play around with this -- for now, I have the functionality I need. Th...

Re: On Asking Questions

This is probably a really simple syntax problem, but for the life of me, I cannot figure out what I'm doing wrong. All I want is for a bar to descend from off the top of the screen, decrease in value, then rise back up. Here's how I define the bar and its animations (in screens.rpy): screen funnybar...

Re: [SOLVED, with a question remaining] Use variable to set side image mood

I realized that there's an easy way around this: use a dynamic image. Instead of "how do I dynamically invoke an image tag with the value of a variable," I can replace my question with, "how do I dynamically set a filepath the value of a variable." And that's easy to answer: image side zoe dynamic =...

[SOLVED, with a question remaining] Use variable to set side image mood

I'd like to be able to use a variable to determine what expression a character has for a particular line, and I've been unable to determine how to do this. Basically, what I'd love is to be able to do something like this: $ mood = "happy" zoe [mood] "Look at my face and tell me how you think I feel....
