Re: How to display text in Hindi - हिन्दी

I'm not sure that Ren'Py can display Hindi properly. I think it requires a level of text shaping that Ren'Py doesn't support. That being said, if you're just getting squares, you're not using a font that supports the character set.

Re: Wrapping text around non-rectangular images

Ren'Py basically can't do this in a way that would work - the text layout engine just isn't designed for non-rectangular layouts like this.

Re: Do audio formats still matter for Ren'Py?

I'd recommend opus for new audio, if you can support it. Otherwise, ogg vorbis and mp3 are both good choices.

Re: Python 2 deprecation

I'm working on it. The new renpy-build systems was created so that I'll be able to build Ren'Py for Python 3, and 7.4 will be able to support that python2+python3 intersection. Once 7.4 is out, I'm planning to have Ren'Py 7.x that supports Python 2, and Ren'Py 8.x that supports Python 3.

Re: Android Build Fail

Please consider updating Ren'Py. Ant hasn't been supported for Android builds in years, to the point where even if you did get a build working, the Play store wouldn't accept it.

Re: visual novel in foreign language, the dialogue texts breaks! font problem ? or is it renpy?

Ren'Py doesn't support Bengali text shaping (or text shaping for the other indic scripts). Ren'Py has it's own text layout engine, and those scripts are basically the one major family that it doesn't support yet. That's because the rules for layout are very complicated, and unlike Arabic, there aren...

Re: Moving the Preferences buttons and sliders

Just from the look of your game, it doesn't seem like you've customized the interface very much, if at all. If that's true, the easy way would be to create a new project, and copy game/gui, game/gui.rpy, and game/screens.rpy into your old project's game directory.

Re: Icon stuck as ren'py default?

The window icon and the icon.ico file are two different things - one controls in-game, and one controls before the game is launched.

Re: change self-voicing voice?

The answer is no.

Self-voicing is meant for assistive text, so it just passes it off to your OS's speech synthesizer.

Re: Weird inconsistent error when displaying information with square brackets

Can I have a full traceback? In this thing, Name should be being processed as a string - inside the outermost brackets, it's used as a dictionary key. My guess is that something else is processing your string, such that pc.profile is not being interpolated, and since it just sees [Name], Ren'Py is t...

Re: Change How Self-Voicing Pronounces Words?

Although I don't know when 7.4 will be released, I've added the {noalt} text tag to take care of this. In conjuction with the also unreleased {alt} tag, this would let you do:

Code: Select all

"{noalt}Dumbledore{/noalt}{alt}Dumb bell dore{/alt}"
