Re: ATL transform issue

I wouldn't really know a good way around that problem, or what the problem would be exactly. You said the transitions work the way they should most of the time, maybe you made a typo or small coding mistake with this particular dissolve statement in the text itself instead of something within the tr...

Re: ATL transform issue

I'm not too sure what problem the image is supposed to be portraying. I think you're referring to the girl being all white with red lines instead of her actual color-containing sprite, but I can't really be sure as I do not know what the intended result looks like. Is this white sprite like a part o...

Re: Side Image Question

I've actually asked a similar question just a while back in 'how to work with layers in side-image[Solved]'. I was given several solutions until I got one that worked, so you could try and read through that topic for a few ideas. The best way to prevent your image appearing behind the textbox would ...

Re: How to work in layers with a side-image?[Solved]

I've taken a quick glance at the whole concept of im.Composite and LiveComposite in the Ren'Py handbook and such, but it doesn't really seem that much more efficient than the system I'm using now since I'll still have to use the 'show' statement(in the form of $layer) and transitions like 'with fade...

Re: How to work in layers with a side-image?[Solved]

With the live composite thing, I don't have to put anything into the code other than the persons name when they are talking. samantha "blah blah" and that shows her pictures automatically. if i want to change anything about her appearance it'd be something like: samantha "I am so sad..." $ samantha...

Re: How to work in layers with a side-image?[Solved]

I tried a whole bunch of the things you guys adviced me to do and a whole lot of maybe possibilities I derived from them. And finally, one of them worked! Hurray! #in options config.layers = [ 'master', 'transient', 'screens', 'ml', 'overlay' ](, I shortened my_layer to ml) #in script show rb at cor...

Re: How to work in layers with a side-image?

have you defined your own layers in the options file? Once you do that, you should be able to place that side image specifically onto that layer just above the text box. If that's what you mean. That way you aren't putting them on the same layer. kind of like: show side_image onlayer my_layer The o...

Re: How to work in layers with a side-image?

I've got a whole system for my sprites. For example, most sprites have four kinds of eyebrows; normal, sad, angry and frown. They also have at least five kind of eyes; normal, slanted, looking sideways, looking down, scared. That's twenty combinations already and we're not even halfway. Richard, my ...

How to work in layers with a side-image?[Solved]

I'm currently working on my first visual novel, and things have been going rather well thus far. Made a lot of sprites and working in layers with pretty much all of them for optimal expression freedom. With the side image however, I hit a problem I'm not sure how to solve. I found out that side imag...

Re: prob with textbox covering the side image

I have the same question as Ladynamoru, but this answer unfortunately doesn't work for my problem as I cannot use side image. Or rather I can, but it would be a nigh undoable amount of work. For you see, I have made a whole bunch of expressions for my main character whom I want to portray to the sid...
