Re: Bar Not Updating After Value Changes

Fixed it. screen user_menu(): fixed: xalign 0.0 yalign 0.0 hbox: spacing 2 yalign 1.0 bar: value FieldValue(Raven,"Love",range=4096) xsize 25 ysize 525 Just needed to use FieldValue instead of referencing the variable directly.

Bar Not Updating After Value Changes

So, for some reason, whenever I change the value in the bar, the bar itself isn't being updated. I've tried changing the variable in the console directly as well as by calling a function that changes it. Within the function, I am calling renpy.restart_interaction() after the change as well. The only...

Custom Say Screen, strange behavior with frames

So I want a frame instead of a window for the say screen, so that the text box can grow and shrink according to what's inside it. My solution to this, which probably wouldn't work, is to try and replace the outer window of the say screen with a frame. However, I'm seeing some very strange behavior f...

Re: Modal Say Screen Not Working

I figured out a way to do it. It involves using SensitiveIf() and renpy.get_screen() . SensitiveIf() is a button action that determines if the button is sensitive. It evaluates whatever statement is between the parenthesis, and the button is only sensitive if that statement evaluates to True . renpy...

Tooltip Being Overwritten?

Having some more troubles with tooltips. The code below generates imagebuttons based on the contents of the list in halls . However, it seems like the tooltip for each button is being overwritten by the last imagebutton to be created. So if I have four items in halls , then four buttons are created,...

Re: Modal Say Screen Not Working

It might be simpler, but it wouldn't be as strong. It would be much safer to have an engine-level mechanism detecting whether a certain screen is being used than to have to remember to enable/disable a flag twice per dialogue path. How is 'modal' not what I am looking for? A modal screen supposedly ...

Re: Tooltip not working

Thanks, guys. You didn't give me the answer, but you certainly got me started. The big problem that I was focused on was why the imagebuttons weren't displaying their tooltips. Then philat said only displayables that can take focus can actually have tooltips I realized then that my imagebuttons were...

Tooltip not working

I'm trying to understand how the tooltip works, and why it seems so inconsistent. The tooltip is displayed when I hover over the textbuttons in the "Action Panel", but not anywhere else. The documentation states that tooltips can be used on any displayable, so why can I only get it to work with text...

Re: Modal Say Screen Not Working

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, I don't think what you've posted is going to help me very much. I'm looking specifically for a way to detect is something is currently being said via dialogue. I am trying to avoid having to manually enable/disable menu options, which I believe is what your solut...

Modal Say Screen Not Working

In my game, there is essentially a HUD that is displayed at all times. This HUD is a screen that allows the player to talk to other characters. However, a problem I am facing is that, when dialogue has been started, the player is still able to click a button on the HUD and launch a new branch of dia...

I don't know if you've tried already, but you might have better luck approaching an artist whose style you like and asking them to partner with you, instead of waiting for them to come to you.
Took your advice, and found an artist before the weekend was over! Thanks for the help!

Re: [OPEN] [REV-SHARE] [NSFW] Looking For A Long-term Artist/Partner To Work On A Cyberpunk RPG

I suggest learning the basics of drawing, it helps you choose and communicate with your artists. I actually tried learning how to draw so I could do the art myself, but the time investment just became too much. With how much work I want to go into both the coding and the art, it just isn't feasible...

Re: [OPEN] [REV-SHARE] [NSFW] Looking For A Long-term Artist/Partner To Work On A Cyberpunk RPG

Looking around other recruitment forums for projects like mine, I'm realizing that a lot of these don't end up going anywhere even after the team is formed. Typically, it's because the project lead wasn't willing or able to do any of the work they said they could. So, as a display of at least basic ...

Re: How do you control what does and does not get saved?

Have you seen this article - https://www.renpy.org/doc/html/save_load_rollback.html ? Haha, yes! I found that about five minutes ago and was able to figure out what the problem was. My game is set up with menus to control movement between areas, or 'cells'. I would travel between cells and time wou...

Re: How do you control what does and does not get saved?

Also, it turns out that my problem isn't actually fixed. Even when I set every variable within the default object to a default value, nothing is saved when I load a new save file. Everything just gets set back to its default value instead of being saved.
