Re: 6.99.14.2 Prereleased

That's what I tried before, but I figured it out just now. In addition to Atom.edit.py, I also needed to create an empty atom/atom-windows folder. Now I can select Atom without it downloading another one.
Things are all good on my end now!

Re: 6.99.14.2 Prereleased

Ah, okay. Yeah, it looks like that is a better way to select Atom, so that the bottom of the launcher's "Edit File" menu has "Open project". When I use the System Editor option, that choice is "All script files" instead. Open project does what I expect, while All script files seems to open one Atom ...

Re: 6.99.14.2 Prereleased

Trying Atom and it seems pretty good to me so far. I was having a few usability issues myself, but I appreciate that many of them can be customized away. Here's what I did: In the autocomplete-plus core package's settings, changed "Keymap for Confirming a Suggestion" to "tab always, enter when sugge...

Re: Movie as a background for main menu?

I guess basically this: movies definitely have their uses, as they ARE supported in Ren'Py for a reason; but they should be used sparingly (i.e. only when they will really enhance some part of the game), because there are a lot of potential technical problems that can happen with movies.

Re: Movie as a background for main menu?

For what it's worth, here's a way to cut down on the boilerplate with that animation definition. (This exact code isn't tested, although it is similar to working code in my game.) main_menu_animation_args = [] for i in range(107): # Python string formatting: http://docs.python.org/2/library/string.h...

Re: Importing a Project into Ren'Py Launcher

You can tell the Ren'Py Launcher the directory it should look in to find your projects. It's an option that you can change.

In the 6.14 launcher, it's preferences -> Projects Directory.
In 6.13 and below, it's Options -> Projects Directory.

Re: Your first ever video game.

Think it was Dr. Mario for the NES.

It ended up being my favorite puzzle game, although I don't play the NES version anymore - the N64 version is the one I've played the most, and my current favorite is the Wii version.

Ok, here: https://github.com/renpy/renpy/issues/45 Alex: I didn't make it too clear in my post, but in my use case, I want to be able to change the background when you click on a button.

Screen hiding might crash depending on zorder

Not sure whether this is my misunderstanding about how screens work, or a bug. The situation: - I have two screens showing; call them screen_1 and screen_2. - screen_1 has an on "hide" statement that hides screen_2. So when screen_1 is hidden, screen_2 is also hidden. - screen_1 has a higher zorder ...

Re: renpy.call() crash when label doesn't take parameters

Thanks, PyTom. mirelle: The code I posted wasn't a particularly useful example. Yeah, in that sort of situation you should just use the call statement. Additionally, even if you built the label name dynamically, you could still avoid renpy.call() by using the call expression statement: $ label_name ...

renpy.call() crash when label doesn't take parameters

I'm not sure if this is a bug or a misunderstanding on my part. Here's some example code to illustrate: label start: e "See if you read the following two lines without an error." $ renpy.call('line1') $ renpy.call('line2') e "Didn't crash? Then it's working." return label line1(**kwargs): e "This is...

LiveTile crash: range() integer end argument expected

Details at: https://github.com/renpy/renpy/issues/37

I'm posting this thread just to provide a demo game .zip demonstrating the error. Feels a bit silly, but I didn't want to use Mediafire for a 9 KB file.

Re: Playing video on 6.14

I'm debating if I should just require ANGLE on windows if an Intel card is found. I think we've had a ton of problems with the Intel Windows GPU drivers. Do you mean DirectX mode? For what it's worth, that doesn't work at all for me... I could only run games with OpenGL or software. Specifically, I...

Re: Playing video on 6.14

I had to manually download the newest driver from Intel (auto detection complains about having a "manufacturer customized" driver -- the latest version of the manufacturer's driver is still broken). That's usual process of upgrading intel drivers :| I never want to do it. Indeed. Maybe we could ben...
