Re: How can I make my character talk, inside a screen?

Thank you, so much!! It's perfect now. I'm reading the docs you provided, specially the "ui.interact" one because that is completely new to me, not something that you usually see in renpy tutorials... By the way, It wasn't necccesary to use in order to make the character speak! I just created the la...

Re: How can I make my character talk, inside a screen?

Thank you so much! I still have a proble though, the style of the text doesn't match the style of the game. Instead, it looks plain text, without any kind of formating. https://i.imgur.com/SxHBPSj.png Even more, if I try to use a character to speak, it gets even worse. https://i.imgur.com/DRl8smP.pn...

How can I make my character talk, inside a screen?

Hi, I would like my character to say something when you click on a imagebutton. Right now I'm trying to use: action Show("say(" " , "Whatever")") but this isnt working. As you can see, I'm trying to call the default say screen that already comes with renpy. The code is as follows. screen grabscreen(...

The variable "open" is False by default. define y = ("Yukio") default open = False label start: hide screen item scene bathroom I then change the value to True (doing certain t...

I want screens with the same tag to show at the same time

I want to hide every screen every time I leave a room. I want to use tags to accomplish this, but the problem is that you can't show two screens with the same tag at the same time, I want to get rid of that. Is there a way to do this? Maybe I can change the way tags work?

Re: I can't make items (imagebutton) stay in just one label

It may help if we could see more of how your navigation works and what you use the kitchen label for. Hi. This is the whole code. define y = ("Yukio") screen movement(leftLocation, rightLocation): frame: xalign 0.0 ypos 400 imagebutton: idle "arrowPasiveLeft.png" action Jump(leftLocation) frame: xa...

Re: I can't make items (imagebutton) stay in just one label

That wouldn't work. The navigation HUD (call screen) would come and the dish screen would be hidden already (I already tried this) without letting the user interact with it. I suppose I need to attach a variable to the kitchen label somehow. Or maybe some command that hides the screen from hiding un...

Re: I can't make items (imagebutton) stay in just one label

Hi! Thank you for replying. I can't use show screen because I want the screen to disappear when there's dialogue (a question of style). So I use call screen so it shows only when called... Also I don't want to have to hide the navigation window all the time. Why not place the dish image into the kit...

I can't make items (imagebutton) stay in just one label

Re: I can't use if statement to perform an action (Jump label)

Paths and directories in renpy are always stated in a string format Thank you very much for the help. When things seem to be arbitrary it is really usefull to dispell the fog with information! Starting to understand everything you write is a must, but when you start you (sadly) use "formulas" that ...

Re: I can't use if statement to perform an action (Jump label)

It works!!! Thank you so much! Regarding quotes. I know about that, but I was really confused because I don't quite get why sometimes quotes are used and sometimes not. For example I totally get why they aren't used here: screen movement(leftLocation, rightLocation): But I don't get why they are use...

I can't use if statement to perform an action (Jump label)

HI, I'm new at coding in general (4 days old at renpy). I'm trying to make a navigation HUD (suing screens) that uses arrows to move to different parts of a room. I wan't to have just one screen with multiple if arguments, so pressing the same arrow of the HUD directs the player to different locatio...
