Re: custom main menu makes game loop?

I tried using it for the game script and it still loops, if i use jump main menu it works correctly but I'm still worried theres something wrong, because it should not loop even if I don't insert that code. and as using return on the quit confirm screen, that only seems to work correctly if the play...

Re: custom main menu makes game loop?

the only places where I added 'jump main_menu' into were in the quit confirm screen (that itself created a seperate problem for me that I need to get around) and at the end of the game in order to stop it from looping, with 'jump main_menu' put at the end of the game it does work at stopping the loo...

Re: custom main menu makes game loop?

well, the custom menu replaces the default when you launch the game, but i didnt go inside anywhere in renpy to actually shut off the default...I guess I can fix this by putting a return to mainmenu code at the end of the game so that it doesnt loop, but it shouldn't loop in the first place right?

Re: rollback randomly broken? rollback goes directly to mainmenu

yes, I customized the main menu using an image map, but this problem wasn't happening before while I had the customised menu. It just kind of all of a sudden did this, I'm sure I must have done something that caused it but I don't know what it was...but it had been working as usually after I made th...

custom main menu makes game loop? (fixed)

I don't understand why, but after creating a custom main menu (an image map) when you select and click start game, it starts normally but then where it should end and bring you back to the main menu it instead starts back at the beginning and you need to play again before it goes back to the main me...

toggle image buttons on and off

In my game, for the majority of the time there will be image buttons appearing at the bottom of the screen which will allow the player to save/load exit and go back to the main menu. But During the very beginning I need to make that option not available. Is there a way to do this?
