Re: [WIP] Dragon Story - Demo released!

Whenever conversation got serious (Which was extremely often.) all of the dialogue between characters would start to sound almost exactly the same. Characters should have clearly different speaking styles, and ways of reacting to grave situations. Yet I almost never saw that in any of them. Yeah, y...

Proportional scale function

Here's something that I came up with in my development due to general laziness. ;-) Consider it a mix between im.Scale and im.FactorScale for character images. The purpose is to get something useful on the screen for when you don't yet have the final artwork for your VN and thus don't want to manual...

Re: Getting code to mesh?

For anyone to help you, it would be useful to see how exactly you tried to combine the two code snippets. Did you just paste them after each other (which most definitely wouldn't work, with two "label start" blocks) or did you already try combining the code blocks in some fashion?

Re: Silly newbie question: 2 different versions of NVL?

That's what the nvl_variant variable is for. See the very bottom of http://www.renpy.org/wiki/renpy/doc/reference/NVL_Mode It's a little buried in the documentation, but it works just fine. You can set it to different values and all nvl styles use the named value, or the default one if a style value...

Re: Screen tint

I think you have to recolor each displayable individually (see http://www.renpy.org/wiki/renpy/doc/ref ... s/im.Sepia for one example). It shouldn't be all that much extra work though, since you only have to define the recolored duplicates of your images once.

Re: Adding +1 to var every one "real-time "minute

Something like this should work: python: def clocktick(): global minutes minutes += 1 return ui.timer(60.0, clocktick, repeat=True) I use this method with a far smaller timeout for a credits scroller, and apart from the current lack of vsync support in Renpy it works fine.

Re: I think I stumbled onto a CTC bug

Here's another CTC problem for NVL mode: label start: nvl clear scene bg dummy with fade "First line" "Second line - Working end of page CTC" nvl clear "First line" "Second line - Broken end of page CTC" call ctc_2 "New page and done" return label ctc_2: nvl clear return It seems that the end of pag...

Re: How to make Theora playback less jerky?

Scaling is dirt cheap (or it should be, unless the player is buggy as hell). Decoding HD video is expensive. At 800x600 you are already somewhat above SDTV resolutions. I think the most common formats for DVD-Rips are still in the 600x300 range, which is only 37% as many pixels as your current movie...

Re: Could I use persistet data for...?

Do you mean you get back to the same menu during the same playthrough? Then you shouldn't use the persistency mechanism, but just normal variables. Persistent data is for things that should remain even after you completely restarted the game. From your description, it doesn't sound like this is what...

Re: Can I change styles in game - after "label start" ?

You can do it if you call style.rebuild() after making your changes. But note the problems listed at http://www.renpy.org/wiki/renpy/doc/reference/functions/style.rebuild Due to the limitations, it's better in most cases if you use a variable to switch to a different named style inside your UI code,...
