Thank you for that. I will report any progress I make. So don't expect to hear from me for a while :)

Re: Structuring my scripts correctly while also displaying stats

Ok, thanks for that. Back to the basics for me, I guess. I knew I was being too ambitious, but I was always a pain in the arse student.

Re: Structuring my scripts correctly while also displaying stats

So far I've had over 200 views but no suggestions. Have I made an unfixable mess, or not explained something clearly enough? I am at standstill until I can sort this out.

Structuring my scripts correctly while also displaying stats

Firstly, I want to make it clear that I an no expert here, so answers may need to be dumbed down for me. For the same reason, please forgive me if I don't use the correct terminology here or there. What I want to do is create a game that has a very large list of minor characters, and a long storylin...

Re: Scenes, screens and images

The image names are all correct. I am guessing that it must have something to do with the nvl image which is the immediate file between the two bits of code. This happens: label setup_register_scene: scene setup_register $ name = renpy.input("What is your first name?") $ name = name.strip() if name ...

Re: Scenes, screens and images

That has fixed it. Although it did throw up another related issue, which (again) I think is just me not being knowledgable enough about ren'py coding. I have several files which get called in sequence: script.rpy label start: ## call variables call setup_difficulty_scene call setup_gender_scene call...

Re: Scenes, screens and images

That hasn't made any difference. What do I need to do differently with the image file? Do I use something like: scene hotelExterior(): "images/bg/hotel_exterior.png" or screen hotelExterior(): add "images/bg/hotel_exterior.png" or what? How do I define the background images if not like this? Thank y...

Scenes, screens and images

Once again I apologise in advance for any novice mistakes I have made here. This site and this forum are the only reliable places I can turn to in order to learn how to do some of the things I want to do. Many of the online videos I have found always assume that I know more than I do. I only seem t...

Re: Unexpected EOF While Parsing [solved]

No, I found it. It was simply an extra space when I defined the character. My own fault.

Thnak you Ocelot, that is going to make things much easier for my small brain to handle. :)

Re: Unexpected EOF While Parsing [solved]

So then what does this mean? It was working, but now is not. Nothing had changed with this part of the coding since the last successful playthrough. I'm sorry, but an uncaught exception occurred. While running game code: File "game/script.rpy", line 11, in script call call hotel_01_scene File "game/...

Re: NPC name change after identification

Thank you, that works perfectly. I have no doubt that I will have another equally stupid question for you later. :)

Re: NPC name change after identification

If the dynamic = True is for the name "Marie", how do I show the "Maid" name before she identifies herself. Do I keep everything: label variables: $ nameHotelmaid = False if nameHotelmaid == False: [Hotelmaid] = "maid" else: [Hotelmaid] = "Marie" return but just change the nameHotelmaid to m_name?

NPC name change after identification

I want some of my NPCs to simply be called "maid", or "delivery boy" etc until they actually say something like "my name is John". After that point their names would show as "John". I thought I could do it this way, but I keep getting an error. I set up what I hoped would be the name character.rpy d...

Re: separating and organizing .rpy files?

So, to be clear, I can sort all of my files into folders and files, which is excellent, but do I need to call or jump or otherwise reference these files. If I store all of my variables in a rpy file (for example), will it find them without any help from me?
