using the "[" and "]" characters in dialogue [fixed]

renpy seems to have a problem with using [ and ] in dialogue, I imagine because they're also used for displaying variables. is there a way to get around that? like how you type \" if you want to use "?

Re: toggling the displayed language

will do :) any thoughts on how to toggle the language with a button, though? that's my main issue at the moment e: okay, I pretty much fixed it! and in the end, I think the problem might lie in "persistent.lang"? also lmfao why was I using a complicated if statement with SetVariable(), when ToggleVa...

toggling the displayed language [fixed]

okay, so I'm trying to have two different languages in the game I'm working on, but I'm having a little trouble with it. I'm implementing the in-line translation from this documentation page, but a few things aren't working right. firstly, init python: config.main_menu.insert(3, (u"Quirks", "lanuage...

Re: showing and hiding screens from inside other screens

OH! you guys, I totally solved it! the screen names need to be inside 's, so it has to be like Show('Notepad'), or whatever e: oh and it turns out you actually can hide a screen from inside itself. so in the notepad icon, I'm perfectly able to have action[Show('notepad'), Hide('notepadicon')]. just ...

showing and hiding screens from inside other screens[SOLVED]

okay so according to the documentation, this should be pretty simple, but it's not working for me at all :( I have a little button at the top right of my screen that opens up a notebook screen with some important info, and when I click that button, I want the button to vanish until I exit the notebo...

Re: Can somebody remove the background for this sprite?

okay! with gimp, when you want a new layer, just go the layers/channels/paths dock, and find the layers tab. this one will have settings like "mode, opacity, lock", and then show you a list of layers below that, with thumbnails of what's on each layer. to create a new layer, find the little white pa...

Re: Can somebody remove the background for this sprite?

No, that picture is colored in a computer. So it doesn't matter how your paper was. That's what I mean, you do everything on a layer separate from the background (the colors should be in a layer separate from the line drawing). That way you won't have that problem. :) O.o I honestly have no idea ho...

Re: Changing narrators...

but changing characters is how you change who's talking, isn't it? reading up, I see in the first post you mentioned a button that would change who's talking. how exactly are you imagining that working for the player?

movein/moveout taking more time?

movein and moveout transitions take 0.5 seconds, according to the documentation. but is there a way to make them a little slower? I have a long image that I want to enter the screen and then scroll down and off the screen as some action happens on an overlay, but at the moment it's going a little to...
