Who is this mysterious girl?

#1 Post by xPerfectSuicide » Fri Aug 07, 2015 1:27 am

A few moments ago I was quietly move some images to RenPy. Suddenly, inadvertently. I wrote the sentence "Show ocho" for an image that had not declared with "image =" and was not in the pictures folder So when I ran the game I met with the silhouette of a mysterious girl who had written on his chest what I had written
Image

Really I do not know where did that figure, or who she is. but I would like to know

I'd say it's an simple stand in image used so the game doesn't break at this point?

Mugenjohncel made the sprite art. It actually tries to guess the character's gender based on the name, although it's likely pretty poor at it.

So THAT'S who's responsible for scaring the daylights out of me the first time I saw this image.

Seriously, I was a little startled the first time I encountered this mystery lady. I thought the game would just crash or something if the image wasn't in the right folder/place. But no, a dark and ominous silhouette appears instead (which I was not expecting)!

Is there any reason for using this image (other than pointing out to the dev that they dun goofed)?

It's pretty much a built-in placeholder image so you don't have to make those yourself (I think this is it: http://www.renpy.org/doc/html/changelog ... -py-6-18-1). Doubles as a handy indicator that your image code isn't working as it should be if you do have images already :P

Haa, is there a way to change the default I wonder? She scares me every time she shows up. Then again, it is an immediate and stark way to notice when I've typo'd an expression name.

It's a tool to help people who don't have a character graphic for that character yet, know their positioning/movements without needing to upload a placeholder graphic.

I enjoyed the mysterious nature of this thread, however long it lasted :)
