Re: Is it still OK to use LiveComposite for blinking sprites?

Re: Is it still OK to use LiveComposite for blinking sprites?

You can define an ATL animation for your eyes and use that animated image in layeredimage. For example following will create animation with randomly blinking eyes: image blinking_eyes: "eyes_open" choice: pause 8.0 choice: pause 12.0 choice 0.5: pause 4.0 choice 0.2: pause 0.8 "eyes_closed" pause 0...

Hey everyone I was considering implementing a blinking aesthetic to my character sprites in the game I'm working on and doing some searching I could only find the deprecated page referring to LiveComposite for Blinking and Lip Flap.

Re: How to add a new preference config to settings screen

You should be able to use the variable with a layered image, which would be much more efficient than the way shown for text in the linked thread. https://www.renpy.org/doc/html/layeredimage.html?highlight=layered Thanks, seems to be the best way - however I can tell this will take a looong time to ...

How to add a new preference config to settings screen

Hello, I have some DLC for my game that I want to release but I need a toggle / radio option in the Settings in order to enable what this DLC adds. In this case, it allows the user to enable it to see the adult mode sprites in the game, and disable it if they don't. After some research it seems that...
