Re: Image not found in ANDROID_PUBLIC path

Oh, you didn't mention allowing the user/player to put the mod in the game.

As far as I'm aware, it's a permissions thing - Renpy doesn't have the required permissions to read outside its own directory.

Re: Linking to other script files?

Yes that's correct. The script of a Ren'Py game is made up of all the files found under the game directory ending with the .rpy extension. Ren'Py will consider each of these files (in Unicode order), and will use the contents of the files as the script. Generally, there's no difference between a scr...

Re: Image not found in ANDROID_PUBLIC path

What does your mod change, exactly? You can change the user interface without restarting the app and sprites / backgrounds can be adjusted also. I recently updated my Android GUI (link in signature) to do exactly this. The next planned update should extend the functionality to styles. Would this be ...

Re: Image not found in ANDROID_PUBLIC path

I won't pretend to understand most of this as it's all new to me, but when does the image get defined, at what stage of init?
Does placing your code in a higher (lower?) init help?

Re: Position choice boxes based on their enumerate

I looked up the definition of 'enumerate', but I'm still confused. Do you want a fixed number of buttons positioned in a circle, or are you trying to make buttons only appear in certain positions and not all the buttons will be used sometimes so you need them to move one space clockwise / anticlockw...

Re: [Questions] Help me, please.

DDLC does this at one point and the effect is pretty good because the player is caught off guard when it happens, yet it's part of the narrative, so it's not necessarily abusing the player. No example (on a mobile device, writing code is painfully hard) but you'd want to force save the game just bef...

Re: Adventures in video decoders: the quest for VP9a

Ren'Py compiles ffmpeg without hardware acceleration support. See https://github.com/renpy/renpy-deps/blob/de14fdbb0bd291919d566199e0f9f7677534c6da/build.sh#L407 I was under the impression that it did/required it, like mentioned here by pytom. https://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=...

Re: How to get the textbox to remain visible during sprite transitions??

You could fake it. The text box is merely an image in the say screen, and since you can't stop the say screen disappearing, then just show the images themself.

Re: Imagemap or what?

To be honest, an image button would be easier / more convenient - you can set focus_mask to True and only the non-alpha regions of the image will respond, allowing for more shapes than just a rectangle

Re: Custom transform not working [Help]

Your indentation looks odd, transforms should be outside any label and all the way to the left.

Re: Textbuttons or menus

If you're referring to the choice menu, that is made using textbuttons. I think what you're asking is if its better to use the default choice menu, or supply your own screens with choices. Neither is better than the other, they're just different ways of doing things. For instance, in one game I made...

Re: Linking to other script files?

As above, making a new file is all that's needed and is actually recommended for (very slight) performance improvements.

Just be sure to use labels and jumps returns etc correctly, remember that files load alphanumerically, and do not start any file names with 00

Re: Individual GUI button sounds

The error says "expected statement", which indicates you've placed it in the wrong spot, yes.

That textbutton would be placed in the screen that uses it, not within gui.rpy--its a button (screen element) ready to use.

[Android] Sprites after videos showing wrong image for 1(?) frame

I've taken on a project for somebody that involves a few videos between choices. These videos are transitions basically, where a sprite shows, you make a choice, a transition to the new pose plays as a video, then the new pose is shown. The problem I'm encountering is that the sprite from before the...
