Game errors on startup only if rpy and rpyc files are in an archive

I had a weird issue with the latest version of Ren'Py.

In the launcher, the game works fine.
Built with rpy and rpyc files in an archive, and game crashes.
Built with loose rpy and rpyc files, and the game works fine.

Just wondering if anyone else is experiencing this.

Re: Show Character doesn't work in screens?

You might want to have a look at how layers work: https://www.renpy.org/doc/html/displaying_images.html Usually, I just make sure my UI elements don't block the area where my characters will appear, but that's just me looking for an easy life. In the rare occasion where I need a character to appear ...

Re: Get back to previous label

You should use the renpy.jump() command if you want to jump to a label that's stored in a variable: https://www.renpy.org/doc/html/statemen ... renpy.jump

For example:

Code: Select all

$ renpy.jump([label_callback])

Re: Show Character doesn't work in screens?

The way I do it is to use the scene command for the background, and then show screen for the UI, and show for the character. scene livingroom # Needs an image defined, or an image file called livingroom. show screen calendar # Or whatever screen name you're using show character You can then use show...

[Solved] Change fonts from preferences screen

I want to offer the ability to switch from the default font to OpenDyslexic (and vice versa) in the preferences menu. I've tried using the Preferences action to change the gui.interface_text_font, and I've tried calling a function from the menu to alter the font substitution table. Neither works. Ha...

[Suggestion] Import Dialogue

The Export Dialogue option does a great job of pulling out the dialogue for proofreading, but getting edits back in is time consuming. Would it be possible to modify the export to include a line number or dialogue ID so that an import function could be implemented? It would seriously help improve th...

Re: Question on playing video

Found the issue.

I had
define config.has_sound = False
define config.has_music = False
define config.has_voice = False
in Options.rpy. That somehow prevented the video from playing.

Re: Is there a way to make the "h" key hide everything but the scene image?

I'm using scene for the background, and screen for the text.

Is there another way I haven't found to show the text image?

Is it possible to manipulate string variables and have the resultant string point to an image?

Ok, so after reading the title you're probably scratching your head. As I mentioned in my first post, I'm using background images for all bgs and sprites, and I'm using sprite images for speech bubbles and exposition text. This means that with the right naming convention I should be able to have a s...

Is there a way to make the "h" key hide everything but the scene image?

Hi all! I have a couple of questions, but this one's the first one: I'm putting together a visual graphic novel in Ren'Py, and I'm using png speech and thought bubbles rather than the usual interface. I'm also using fully rendered screens to show the character (yes, lots of scene changes but I'll co...
