Re: Dating Sim Engine (DSE) 3.0! Day Planner and Event Manag

Sorry to lean on you for help again, but I'm encountering an issue with formatting inside of the boxes. I didn't like the default padding between different elements, so I changed this (in the stats.rpy file):

Code: Select all

                    if bar:
                        bar value v range m.max xmaximum 150 xalign 0.0
                        
                    if value and max:
                        label ("%d/%d" % (v, m.max)) xalign 1.0
                    elif value:
                        label ("%d" % (v,)) xalign 1.0
                    elif max:
                        label ("%d" % (max,)) xalign 1.0
to this:

Code: Select all

                    if bar:
                        bar value v range m.max xmaximum 150 xalign 0.0
                        
                    if value and max:
                        label ("%d/%d" % (v, m.max)) xalign 0.0
                    elif value:
                        label ("%d" % (v,)) xalign 0.0
                    elif max:
                        label ("%d" % (max,)) xalign 0.0
the problem is that it leaves a large space between the value and the righthand side of the box, as you can see from my screenshot. My question is what number in all of the possible frames/files/etc do I need to change so that both edges fit properly to the interior elements?

I'm not sure what you mean by "fit properly" - do you want the the bar and the value number to be together on the right edge of the box? If so, you could try putting the bar and the value together in an hbox. That also requires changing the size of the grid, so I'm just going to post the whole display_stats screen:

Code: Select all

screen display_stats(name=True, bar=True, value=True, max=True):
    $ dse_stat_length = len(__dse_stats)
    frame:
        style_group "dse_stats"        
        yalign 0.0
        xalign 0.5

        vbox:
            yalign 0.0
            xalign 0.5
            label "Statistics" xalign 0.5

            # Make a grid that has two spots horizontally, and as many spots vertically as there are stats
            grid 2 dse_stat_length:
                xalign 0.5
                yalign 0.5
                spacing 5
                
                for s in __dse_stats:
                    $ v = getattr(store, s.var)

                    if name:
                        label s.name
                    
                    #put the bar and the value together in a box
                    hbox:
                        if bar:
                            bar value v range s.max xmaximum 150 xalign 0.0
                            
                        if value and max:
                            label ("%d/%d" % (v, s.max)) xalign 1.0
                        elif value:
                            label ("%d" % (v,)) xalign 1.0
                        elif max:
                            label ("%d" % (max,)) xalign 1.0
You can change the display_stats screen to display in whatever way you want. Some of this is controlled by the stat_* styles in styles.rpy, but you can also override it in stats.rpy if you want. It might be helpful to refer to the screen language documentation.

Or, maybe you could sketch kind of what you are trying to do and I can take a stab at it. :-)

The hbox trick did help me out. The problem that I still have is that there is so much space between the labels and the bars.
Screen Shot 2016-02-09 at 12.53.30 PM.png
I suspect it has something to do with the xmaximum value that the bar has, but if i change that then the bar itself gets shorter. I tried placing the labels in the same hbox as the bar and its values, but then the bars and values don't line up neatly like they do in the picture. Does that make it clear enough what I want to make happen?

Thanks again :wink:

Hmm, I think I see what you want to change. I don't think the problem is the xmaximum of the bar - you don't want to change the length of the bar, you want to change the position of the labels, right?

Do you still want them left justified? If you want them right-justified, you can just change this part:

Code: Select all

                    if name:
                        label s.name 
to

Code: Select all

                    if name:
                        label s.name xalign 1.0
If you want to change the size of the frame containing all this stuff, you can add an "xsize 300" or however wide you want it to be up where the frame is defined.

Code: Select all

    frame:
        style_group "dse_stats"        
        yalign 0.0
        xalign 0.5
        xsize 400 #make the frame exactly 400 pixels wide
I think some combination of these should work for you.

Version 3.1 is now out. Fixed a minor bug and moved styles around to be more consistent. If you're already using it and haven't had any problems, you probably don't need the new version.

Here is version 3.1:

I had to get rid of the additional hbox in order to make xsize work properly, but it more or less took care of both of my problems, so consider this mission complete!

Thank you qirien :)

So I did the last thing the copy paste but it gave me this error.

Code: Select all

I'm sorry, but an uncaught exception occurred.

While running game code:

OK, it sounds like you dropped the files in a directory that already has a game in it. Ren'Py looks for the label "start" for where to begin the game; there is one provided by the DSE in main.rpy, and one from your game in script.rpy.

So you need to delete one of these blocks. You probably want to delete the one from the DSE in main.rpy, and then add a line in your code that says "jump day" whenever you want the day planner to start.

Hmmm, that would actually be pretty complicated. It's kind of assumed that each time period is the same length (though you could have days/times with different options, etc).

It'd be easier to either:
a) make the planner for a whole week, and you choose what to do for that week, including the weekend
or
b) have it ask you every day for your plans for that day, and it could give you different options on the weekends.

If you'd like help with one of those options, let me know. :)

I'm having trouble getting the file to register in my game....I could just code the game into the DSE file, but this seems to be an error.

But this is a very helpful way to get started with dating sims =D. So thank you guys for getting it up.

If you have an existing game, then you probably want to find the "start" label in main.rpy and change it to something else. Otherwise it will conflict with your game's "start" label. Or is there another problem you are experiencing...?

My problem is that the time period would be around 10 months and the storyline is not quite long, I originally want to make it weekly planner but won't it make the game too short? but making it daily would just make it too long....

Do you have any other recommendation?
If not, I'll go with the weekly planner
Thanks in advance

Having spent the last couple of months off and on hacking the day planner and making it do what I want, I think I can help you a little.

If you're talking about wanting to change the options that are available on the day planner (different options on the weekend), you'll need to declare a variable that you can change in your init. The best way is a binary system, where "weekend = 0" or "weekend = 1".

With this variable set in place, you can determine what options are available on the planner during a given planning period. So you'll have events look something like this:

Code: Select all

    dp_period("Morning", "morning_act")
    dp_choice("Attend Class1", "class01", show="weekend == 0")
    dp_choice("Attend Class2", "class02", show="weekend == 1")
This code tells the game that on Monday, 'Attend class 1' is an option, but on the weekends it would be 'Attend class 2' instead.

From the sounds of things, you need something slightly more dynamic, so the other option is to create two day planners. If you intend the player to select options on a daily basis (go to park on monday, attend class on tuesday, etc), that's not too difficult. You'll want to create seven (or as many as necessary) 'periods' to use as options.

Code: Select all

    dp_period("Monday", "mon_act")
You'll want to make one of those for each day of the week. From here, you just need to hack the day planner itself.

Code: Select all


if weekend == 0:

    $ mon_act = None
    $ tue_act = None
    $ wed_act = None
    $ thu_act = None
    $ fri_act = None
    $ narrator("What should I do today?", interact=False)

    # Now, we call the day planner, which may set the act variables
    # to new values. We call it with a list of periods that we want
    # to compute the values for.

    call screen day_planner(["Monday", "Tuesday", "Wednesday", "Thursday", "Friday"])

if weekend == 1:

    $ sat_act = None
    $ sun_act = None
    $ narrator("What should I do today?", interact=False)

    # Now, we call the day planner, which may set the act variables
    # to new values. We call it with a list of periods that we want
    # to compute the values for.

    call screen day_planner(["Saturday", "Sunday"])
Just make sure that the weekend variable gets adjusted before you call the acts and day planner.

It really depends on just how you're breaking apart your game.

Hope this helps.
