Re: Pass argument to show image

That works exactly as I hoped. Is there a way to use a variable name instead of "images/[character_object.image]_image.png"? I want to know if I can use image manipulators on top of this, like FactorScale, and if I apply that directly to the expression it says it can no longer find the .png file. Al...

Pass argument to show image

I'm trying to have a label that shows an image, but I want to have which image it is be dependent on the argument of the label (so I can reuse it). The simplified version looks like this: label portrait(character_name): show "images/"+ "[character_name]" +"_image.png" at my_transform the character_n...

Re: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'style'

Okay. I found the error. It was in a transform in the Kazuya_place2 label that I forgot I added in.

Re: Battle Systems in VNs?

I think there's a place for them, but there are stories where it's unnecessary. I'm working on a battle system myself, but it's for one specific project and for others it just doesn't need to be there. Imagine having a turn-based battle system in any VN you come across. It comes off as a joke. There...

Re: Imagebutton vs menu item - time specific dialogue option

Let's see if I'm understanding this right. You want a screen that shows certain options like "wait" or "sleep," and then at certain points in the story additional options come up? Essentially (and it sounds like you're already kind of doing this) you'd just do that with if statements. screen things_...

'NoneType' object has no attribute 'style'[SOLVED]

I'm trying to make units move around, and I'm trying to do it by calling labels. Here's the relevant parts of my code, and Kazuya.place = 1 at initialization. The problem is that when I get down to the "Place 1" and "Place 2" buttons, clicking on one gives the error 'NoneType' object has no attribut...

labels with arguments?[SOLVED]

So I have this bit of code here, with a bunch of displayables and such, with the "arguments" of Kazuya and Kobold. I have this exact same code elsewhere, but with other "arguments" Atsuro and Kabuso. Is there a way I can store this somewhere and access it with a jump label or call label, and supply ...

Re: Make "return" statement return to Extra screen, NOT main menu?

I'm not really sure what the problem is in the first case. Can you label which one is line 275?
In the second case, I think if you put
use "extra"
or something like that, instead of ShowMenu, that might work.

Re: Ren'Py Gripes

I can't get a box of any kind, be it the textbox or a viewport or whatever, to automatically bound text. I have to always put the \n in myself. I've heard about text overflow logging, but that doesn't automatically fix the problem, it just alerts you when it happens. I can't get a viewport to scroll...

Re: Make "return" statement return to Extra screen, NOT main menu?

The return statement goes back to the main menu because you go to the "epi" label with Start(). It can't really return to the menu that way, because it's not really recording the extra screen as an intermediary. If you call a label, return will take you back to where it was called from, but I don't ...

Re: Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor [Reverse-Engineered]

I'm working on the RPG system now, making and applying the DS visuals to it. The COMP initiation sequence is done, so the only things left are the battle sequences and the background music. The 'overworld' of the battlemap is done, with dancing idle sprites that can stand or walk or whatever, and th...

Setting a button as not selected.[SOLVED]

I have a screen (called), on which one of the buttons displays another screen (with show). The text overlays the buttons to indicate what they do. The third button (the unit.name) button calls the secondary menu. Once the second menu is called, I can't get it to go away. The "Back" button is suppose...

Re: Tales From Windy Meadow [Fantasy/Slice of life/Pixel Art/Drama]

The art looks amazing! It looks like you're making quite the step up from The Tavern in terms of visuals; I'll be honest, I tend to avoid games that look like their made in RPGMaker, just because I don't like the general aesthetic of them, but Tales From Windy Meadow looks much more like a Sierra ga...
