Re: Certain configuration variables not working

Make sure there is not a second entry of this config variable, overwriting your own statement. There is a default entry inside <options.rpy> that uses a "dissolve" as an after-load-transition. Delete that or overwrite it inside the file! Ah, that was it. I feel a bit silly for not checkin...

Re: Certain configuration variables not working

Here is how you have to use each of them: Ok, placing $ _game_menu_screen = None inside a label does work now, but as for after_load_transition, that's exactly how I have it written, and it still dumps me very abruptly and unceremoniously into loaded saves, no transition or anything... I'm not sure...

Certain configuration variables not working

I can't get config.after_load_transition = fade or $ _game_menu_screen = None to work. It seems like Ren'Py just ignores these completely. I get no transition when loading a save, and it still shows the save menu when right clicking in game.

Am I using these wrong? What gives?

Re: Ren'Py update 8.2.1 broke scrolling on a viewport

viewports work great for me on 8.2 What happens if you delete this part if ymax is not None: ymaximum ymax The viewport still doesn't work. The only thing that changes is that the frame takes up the entire vertical length of the screen. (which is not what I want, visually.) Doesn't allow for scroll...

Ren'Py update 8.2.1 broke scrolling on a viewport

At least, I assume it was the last update that broke it, because I haven't changed anything about this viewport setup since before updating, and it was working perfectly fine before, but now it doesn't work at all. A text viewport that, prior to updating to 8.2.1, used to scroll perfectly fine, now ...

Re: Help with label callbacks

I tried that too, unfortunately that also doesn't work. Put something inside the function to determine if it is called to begin with, like a renpy.notify() statement! Huh, strangely after trying this, it's suddenly working, even though the only thing I changed was adding the renpy.notify statement....

Re: Help with label callbacks

Here's my code: config.label_callback = labelCallback still it only autosaves right before a choice. What am I doing wrong? According to the documentation, the correct variable name is config.label_callbacks (plural!) and it also expects a list. config.label_callbacks = [labelCallback] I tried that...

Help with label callbacks

Hello, I'm trying to change the autosave functionality so that it saves at the beginning of each label instead of saving right before each choice. I thought the best way to do this would be through a label callback function, but it doesn't seem to work. Here's my code: init python: def labelCallback...

Re: Problems with chapter select [still need help]

As long as you understand how persistent data works and what are implications of its use, it is perfectly fine to use it. The main feature of persistent data is: if you set some value in save A, then it will be accessible in save B, and if save B changes it, it will be retroactively changed for sav...

Re: Problems with chapter select [still need help]

Still need help with this. I really would prefer to avoid abusing persistent data if I can, but I'm starting to think that abusing persistent data may be my only recourse here. If anyone knows any way I could get this working in order to avoid abusing persistent data, I'd love to hear your suggestio...

Re: Buttons load the wrong save

Ok, I think I've...sort of fixed it. I can already predict a few problems, so I'm probably still going to need some help with this. What I've done for now is get rid of the "menu" save entirely. The reason I had two separate saves to begin with was because, at the end of each chapter, I ha...

Re: Buttons load the wrong save

I thought maybe I might try replacing Jump(savefilename + "_menu") in the header screen code with: Function(CallRouteMenu,char) and then in an init python block, i defined the following function: def CallRouteMenu(route): menulabel = route + "_menu" renpy.call_in_new_context(menu...

Re: Buttons load the wrong save

I'm not sure if this provides any sort of clue to what may be happening here, but I tried adding on "show" action FileSave(char + "menu",confirm=False,slot=True) to the chapter select screen, and while it still sometimes loads the autosave, on some occasions what i seem to get in...

Problems with chapter select

Edit: Adding a TL;DR since this is kind of long and probably a little confusing. Basically, I'm having a ton of problems getting a chapter select to work the way I want it to. If you think you have an idea for how to get this working, you don't need to read the entirety of the rest of this thread, ...
