Re: Fixated sprite with moving background using mouse hover

Oh, I'm doing this too. The most famous parallax background code is inflexible, glitchy, and hard to wrap your head around, so here's a slightly modified version of the one from the most recent thread . Some time ago, PyTom made some code for a displayable that follows the mouse cursor in response t...

Re: [Solved] How to disable this page (esc)?

You could also mess around with keybindings if you just want to tie it to an another button. https://www.renpy.org/doc/html/keymap.html

Re: How to create a parallax in the main menu

Would you happen to know how to stop it from getting into its original position when the cursor goes past the edge of the window? on that occasion both x and y on UDD's 'event' section gain -1 value. so you just need to if these values out insertion suggested below is somewhat brutal, but might wor...

Re: Capping a random integer

Chances are, it's because of the brackets. I do this with variables for my game all the time, and it works perfectly well for me.
Change [vimroll] to vimroll, and it should be fine.

Re: How to create a parallax in the main menu

I also tried using this image tracking code provided by PyTom in this Topic: https://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewtopic.php?t=28495 This worked, but I have no clue how to tinker with it even after reading the CDD renpy page. I would like for the background image to follow the cursor, but only slig...

Re: Opinions on making a (seemingly) "cliche" protagonist?

I really like this concept in stories. You may get some inspiration by looking at examples of other writers using a similar idea. In the series Fargo, there is a scene where the character Lorne Malvo is arrested by the police and changes his appearance to look nonthreatening. Secretly, he's a very ...

Opinions on making a (seemingly) "cliche" protagonist?

(I know this post's title is weird but I tried my best to articulate my idea in the fewest words possible. Anyways.) Alright, I'll go straight to the point. I want to make my game's protagonist to seem like one of those typical nervous doormat anime protagonists. At the end of the first chapter, pro...

Choosing a name for my game?

UPDATE: Based on feedback from Lemma Soft Forums and Instagram, I decided to keep my game's name as Speaking of Ghosts, unless I come up with a better name later down the road, of course. Hi! So, for the past few months, I've been learning Ren'Py, and it's coming along pretty nicely, in fact, I'm p...

Re: Recreate some aspects from DDLC

You'd have to make a splashscreen. It's pretty simple, actually. I assume you know what labels are, yes? You'll just have to make a label titled splashscreen, and it will appear before the game starts. Other than that, it would operate like a normal scene. Here's an example: label splashscreen: show...
