Is this on Ren'Py? I'm not sure we can help you unless you're more specific. Are you looking for how to insert backgrounds? Sprites? It sounds like this wasn't helpful to you? http://www.renpy.org/wiki/renpy/doc/tut ... art#Images

One thing to note is that the pictures have to be in the game folder with the script.

Yes it is, and yes I need to know how to put in my own backgrounds. I've done it the way it seems to be saying to. But I reall don't think I did it right.

Okay. The size of your backgrounds should match your screen size. You take the image and you put it in the "game" folder of your project with the rest of your script. In the beginning of your script, you type in this code:

Code: Select all

image givethepictureaname = "the name and file type of the picture in the folder.jpg"
Later on, when you wan the BG to appear in the script you do this.

Code: Select all

    "This is text in your novel"
    a "A character is saying this. This is purely for context, so ignore it. The relevant part comes after this. Let's change a scene, shall we?"
    scene givethepictureaname
    a "Woah! A scene changed!"
You use "scene" for BGs and you use "show" for sprites and the like. If you want the image to appear using an effect, then you type

Code: Select all

    scene givethepictureaname with effectname
As for using backgrounds... if it's not fitting your screen size, you can either make your screen size bigger, or you can adjust the size of the background so it fits (this all depends on which of the two that you want).

Ren'Py is a great tool, and with a little bit of playing around, you should be able to figure it out. ^^
