What I did last week (Week ending 3/06/11)

Welcome to the first "What I Did Last Week" thread. Over the last couple of years, I've noticed that there's a lot of posting, and especially concrete posting, towards the start and end of projects --- but not much in the middle. The hope is that this series of threads will fix this, by providing a...

Well, let's add my blog to the fire: Fox Holes of Varying Interest [ RSS feed ] (and no, it's not as bad as it might sound. honest. why are you looking at me like that?). Currently, the main focus is on Visual Novels (most of the articles are covering ideas and things to consider when developing one...

Re: Problem with video

Mind being a little more specific about what the problem you're having is?

Is the video not playing? Do you know what to put in the script to attempt to play the video?

Re: Ren'Py 6.12.1+ Planning Thread

Image Attributes. Right now, the code: image eileen happy bikini = "ehb.png" image eileen mad bikini = "emb.png" show eileen bikini happy Will give an error. But should that really be the case? It seems like it might make sense to treat everything after the image tag as an "attribute", and then to ...

Re: Tell me, which is good for a "close my eyes" effect?

An imagedissolve uses an image to control the transition from one scene to another (in your scenario, from wherever you're at to a scene that's entirely black). It requires a grayscale image (I think - never tried it with a color image) which determines which pixels fade when. A vertical gradient wi...

Re: Defining and calling user-defined functions?

In C++ (which I assume you're referring to with the struct question), a struct was a class with all members implicitly public (whereas a class has all of its members implicitly private), but in all other regards, the two are identical. In Python, a struct refers to something completely different (wh...

Re: Defining and calling user-defined functions?

Okay, bear with me on this one, there's a handful of answers for this: First off, Ren'Py is Python-based. all Python statements outside of a python: block must be preceded with the $ character. You CAN define actual functions inside Python blocks (I advise using init python: blocks for these). You c...

...On each interaction, it evaluates the conditions in order to find the first that is true , and then displays that displayable. It is an error for no condition to be true .

Re: A question involving stat variables and changing backgro

meh, I need to refresh myself on some stuff anyways, so init python: Date_N = 1 # declare variable. Remember your capitalization, variables are case-sensitive. # etc label start: "Variable Date_N is currently set to %(Date_N)d" $ Date_N -= 2 # Outside of a python block, you must use $ for each pytho...

Re: A question involving stat variables and changing backgro

I can answer the first two for certain: 1: Yes, an operation that would reduce a number to below 0 will return the correct number below 0. 5 - 9 will return -4, for example. 2: Caps and ranges for variables can be enforced with a few basic functions. the functions are min(a, b[, ...]) and max(a, b[,...

Re: A question so silly, it's almost embarrassing.

If I'm reading this right, I think you've got a couple things out of place and are missing a step entirely. 1) the icon files go in the base directory of your project (The folder that contains README.html and a subdirectory called "game" when you first make a new project), not the ren'py SDK base di...
