Re: Ren'Py 6.99.14.1 Prereleased

Could you be running past the 32-statement prediction window? Maybe try bumping config.predict_statements up and see if that helps? I think this was the real issue! I doubled config.predict_statements to 64, and now most of my background images are being caught. Thanks so much for the suggestion. :...

Re: Ren'Py 6.99.14.1 Prereleased

Thanks for the updates, PyTom! ConditionSwitch prediction is working much better now. :) Some of my images are still not being predicted, which I think is related to this . With all the recent improvements to image prediction, do you have any plans to allow prediction for a call followed by a return...

Re: Ren'Py 6.99.14.1 Prereleased

I'll double-check, but would the ConditionSwitch be predictable in the first place? I think they should be predictable. I even tried something very simple like this: image eileen = ConditionSwitch( "emotion == 'happy'", "images/eileen/happy.png", "emotion == 'vhappy'", "images/eileen/vhappy.png", "...

Re: Ren'Py 6.99.14.1 Prereleased

Very excited about all the image prediction improvements! I'm not sure whether the predict_all option for ConditionSwitch is actually working though. I tried both putting predict_all = True in my ConditionSwitch and setting config.conditionswitch_predict_all = True, but the images in my ConditionSwi...

Yes, I can look even if it's not totally reproducible, within reason. I can look for things like unexpected disk access and garbage collection, as well as frames that are marginal on time.
That would be great! I'll send you an email with my game. :)

Re: Why is my game slow?

Thanks for doing this, it sounds really helpful! If you do figure out which programming styles that are causing performance issues, please let us know. I've gotten multiple reports of lag for my game, so I'm interested in tips for making it run more smoothly. :D I do think that updating to 6.99.14 h...

Re: Ren'Py 6.99.14 Prereleased

First off, can you try config.manage_gc = False? Thanks so much! :D I just tried this, and it reduced the lag a lot. Is there any disadvantage to disabling this option that I should know about? I'll keep on testing later. So far, things seem to be working well again, though I'm noticing some textbo...

Re: Ren'Py 6.99.14 Prereleased

Thanks for your hard work as always, PyTom! I'm really excited about all these possible performance improvements and speedups you're implementing. :D Unfortunately, my game doesn't seem to working well in the latest version (6.99.14.3120). Most noticeably, it actually seems to be lagging a lot more ...

Re: [Tutorial] Expanding Mobile Functionality With Pyobjus/Pyjnius (Notifications)

Wow, this is super cool - I had no idea you could do this for Ren'Py games! Thanks so much for sharing and taking the time to write it all up. :D Are you planning to do more tutorials on other mobile functions?

Re: The Pirate Mermaid [GxB][Fantasy] - New Demo Out!

I know, right! Lol But Mikali's route ended in a "better" way, it just stopped at the right time. But for Mr. Grumpy I felt that it just finished at a whatever point (it was my second route, not sure if it is because I was expecting it to finish at any time by the end of Day 1) . Not that this is s...

Re: The Pirate Mermaid [GxB][Fantasy] - New Demo Out!

Great game, amazing story and the demo ended right "there". >_< Jack is indeed amazing, awk! MC is one of the best protagonists I have ever seen. A very different girl who acts SO naturally even if you choose to be bad or good, it isn't fake at all - I confess that I had some doubts about it, but o...
