Re: Saving/loading not working correctly + console issue

Try hitting "Force recompile." I think this was fixed, but it required a recompile to make it work.

Re: renpy.sound.play() doesn't work on 7.3.2

Please file a bug on the Ren'Py tracker, with the files in question attached. I don't know anything that would have changed, but I'd like to handle this when I get a chance.

Re: 0GUI

I like this, as it's an example of what can be done to customize Ren'Py - the whole point of the new GUI system was that it can be easily removed by creators who want to replace it. One suggestion: Could you rename 00 Style.rpy to something else? Files that start with 00 (and those that sort before ...

Re: Ren'py localisation -- move all text to a separate file?

Yes, that is a terrible idea. So, you've started off by making your game's script completely unreadable - you'll have to go back and forth to the document to actually read your game's script. Then, you've given up some of the flexibility that Ren'Py's translation system has. The thing to realize is ...

Re: Spam / Forum Password

I've cleaned up at bit more of the spam mess, by going in and deleting some of the profile fields from users with 0 posts. Hopefully, this will get rid of some of the stealth spam, where users would add links to their profiles.

Re: Background remain as checkerboard when developer mode off

Code: Select all

init python:
     config.underlay.append("myimage")
Where images/myimage.png (or .jpg, .webp, whatever) is the background you choose.

I feel it's necessary, unfortunately. It was getting discouraging to check the forums and see so many new topics that weren't actually new topics.
This is, honestly, why I did it.

Spam / Forum Password

I give up. To stop the unending and wearying waves of spammers, I've set a password that new members are required to know to join the LSF.

Re: Removing Metadata from Ren'Py Builds

I'm not going to claim that there's any way to do this. Ren'Py and Python include filename information to help you debug your game. I'd suggest making sure you don't build your game in a path with your name/username/etc in it. If you want to be sure, I'd suggest setting up a virtual machine and buil...

Re: Ren'Py No Longer Detecting Java JDK

Ren'Py has changed the JDK it requires. It used to require the 32-bit Java 8, now it requires the 64-bit Java 8 to run. That could be the problem.

Re: (Suggestion) Add Support for API Level 19

It's not. The target API change was, but not the minAPI.

I made the change so we could support 64-bit platforms. I'll look to see if I can revert it for ARM devices, but no promises - we're talking about > 5 year old tablets at this point.

You'd have to hide and re-show it for the timer to reset.

Re: Can't Translate Povname Character

You can use double underscore for this:

Code: Select all

if not povname:
     povname = __("Aku")
The double underscore function translates the string it's given as an argument.

Repeat takes a number in conjuction with block. image pov_talk: block: choice: "pov/pov_mouth_mtalk1.png" choice: "pov/pov_mouth_mtalk2.png" choice: "pov/pov_mouth_mtalk3.png" choice: "pov/pov_mouth_mtalk4.png" pause .2 repeat 10 "pov/pov_mouth_done.png"
