Works fine now! Still want to know how to change zoom, though. I'd like to use it for a point-and-click environment, and some images will be different sizes depending on their relative distance from the viewer (simulated through zoom). This will change from screen to screen, so doing all of them through my graphics editor is not an option.

Is there any way to utilize zoom for this? I doesn't seem to accept it as a parameter.

Since this is a general Ren'Py question, not related to this framework, I suggest you ask at Ren'Py Questions and Announcements. Don't forget to include all the relevant lines of your code.

I was panicking because I thought I couldn't open the file. Thanks for the plain text versions!

I know this is just a tutorial, but I found a bug in the code. None of the sliders in the options menus have "hidden" settings.

Code: Select all

I'm sorry, but an uncaught exception occurred.

While running game code:
  File "game/screens.rpy", line 135, in <module>
    bar value Preference("music volume")
AttributeError: 'ScreenDisplayable' object has no attribute 'hiding'

That's a bug in 16.18.0. Upgrade to a newer version of Ren'Py to fix it.

That's amazing tutorial thanks to all that helped to make it. Great that you also added documentation links.
Animation of home/title screen button (one that spins) made me laugh out loud. I also like that lucy_proud.png has 4 brows.

Hi, first of all THANK YOU. I think this tutorial is awesome. But somehow I can't replicate it in my game.
I am working in a game, and in certain part you play rock, paper, scissors. And of course I used an image map to make it look good. Then I heard about using image buttons and I fell in love with the idea. I will describe the process I go through(more or less)

1º I create the png's and call them rock_idle.png and rock_hover.png and place them in the gui folder
2º I add the code in screens.rpy
screen rpsmenu:
imagebutton auto "gui/rock_%s.png" xpos 712 ypos 414 focus_mask True action Return("rock")
3º save it
4º I write the code show rpsmenu in the part of the script.rpy where I need the game to appear
5º save it
6º then i run the game and what I get is a grey silhoute with the text rpsmenu

I think I am forgetting something, but don't know what. If you could tell me what I am doing wrong would be great.
Thanks in advance for your time. I am using version 6.99.3.404

Thank you so much for the tutorial :3 ~ *bow to the epicness of imagebutton*

anyway, I am wondering if you make a BIG button by accident, is there any way to make it smaller by code?

It's best to resize it in your favorite image editor, but if you want to do it by code there's a few ways to do it - http://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewto ... f=8&t=9185

Yup it is solved. Thank you very much.

if you don't mind I want to ask a bit about main menu button in your tutorial.

Code: Select all

imagebutton auto "gui/main_start_%s.png" xpos 773 ypos y focus_mask True action Start() hovered [ Play ("test_one", "sfx/click.wav"), Show("gui_tooltip", my_picture="gui/tooltip_main_menu_start.png", my_tt_xpos=46, my_tt_ypos=518) ] unhovered [Hide("gui_tooltip")] at main_eff1
1. what is "test_one" ? Is that important? Is that only a name (string) or it is connected to data in game folder? If I want to change the sfx with my own, do I still need to add "test_one" or I can directly put "sounds_test.wav"?

2. what is main_eff1?

thank you very much
