Re: I lost code for a minigame and can't find it ANYWHERE!

I will eventually need to have it keep track of if the person failed or not, so I can have different dialogue for the outcome. And I thought you wanted to point out that it's not a square at all, because 50 pixels are missing :lol: Joking asside, how about this then? define e = Character("Eile...

Re: I lost code for a minigame and can't find it ANYWHERE!

Yes, I have. Some games come close but aren't the exact one I was looking for. Any of the click and point games that are listed are too complex... Shouldn't be too hard to code, maybe this helps/gives you an idea? define e = Character("Eileen") # define your images image background_clicke...

Re: vpunch annoying white borders

I also noticed these white stripes and the only thing that works is an ATL transform that uses xzoom +x_pixel. this zooms the image over the edge and then back to the original position.
In your case you should use yzoom +[y_pixel] which expands the image vertically.

Re: button "Continue game"

I just use this I don't understand why the text button is constantly highlighted. I was having this problem too. It turns out, FileLoad sets the button as selected if newest=True, which it is by default. FileLoad is usually used for loading a file from a Load Game screen. I guess it would normally ...

Re: Implementation of Inventory Functionality, but Facing Reset Issue upon Program Reconnection

However, this approach maintains the inventory even when loading other save files, making it challenging to consider this issue resolved. It still feels like a maze. Any insights would be greatly appreciated That's why I don't use classes, you need to store that list/var somehow that renpy will sav...

Re: Implementation of Inventory Functionality, but Facing Reset Issue upon Program Reconnection

To ensure that no clues have been collected when the game starts, I left it empty. Could this be the cause? If you've defaulted that list it should be cleared at the first time running the game but not on loading. And I'm sorry, I just saw it now, you don't return from the function add_clue(item) a...

Re: Implementation of Inventory Functionality, but Facing Reset Issue upon Program Reconnection

My implemented code seemed to be working fine, but when I restart the game program and load the save data, all the items that were added to the inventory disappear. How can I solve this issue? I don't actually write classes, so I'm not very familiar with them, but at first glance I'm surprised at l...

Re: Recommendations for hosting game for public access?

I want to host my project and have it available for free and fast download to the public. Are there any better hosters other than Mega.nz? The game is about 2gb, but I might need a lot of bandwidth/transfer. The 2tb transfer from Mega per month wont be enough, and I don't think 8tb will be either. ...

Not sure what is going on at your system. Are you on windows? Did you update your graphics card drivers?

i made this age prompt, but the game doesn't run! why? There's just a syntax error in label age_verification_prompt. Check this line: "Are you 18 years old or older?": # <- indicates to be a menu item, just delete the : it and it should work. I would also recommend to default the age_prom...

Re: [OPEN][UNPAID][RENPY] Looking for Programmers for Winter VN Jam 2023

Hi craboozled, I have read through your linked Google document and as open positions you need 2 programmers to implement your UI. A few screenshots or sketches of said UI would be an advantage. This makes it easier for coders to decide whether they want to participate or not, because they usually do...
