Thank You for tutorial, but I want to ask something.
could we modify button with vector based image? such as SVG?
I want to minimalize the file size. You know, 200kb in PNG could be only 5kb in SVG.

So am I the only one that started using the code in this tutorial and then updated Renpy only to be a bit sad yet happy about the new GUI script?

For the new GUI you all should probably follow the GUI customization guide in the documentation:
https://www.renpy.org/doc/html/gui.html

welp, problem with that is that I, dunno about everyone else, look for these more detailed and specific tutorials because the documentation goes way over my head :(

agree, it was simple at first with only 3 scripts to edit but now with 7 more things added, it made editing the new renpy version very hard. the time i waste on new version can not complete with simple to edit old version. Plus the new version is kinda broken with image maps and screens.

The new GUI thing definitely is difficult. If it helps you guys out, I managed to edit my background with this new GUI doing this:

Under game/gui, I made a main_menu folder and put the images I used for my menu background (since I have an animated background).

Then, under script, where you put the images you will be using, you create an image for the background. Mine looks like this: image bg main_menu: "gui/main_menu/MM1.jpg".

Then, under screens, at the very bottom of this part:
(## Main Menu screen ############################################################)
I put in define gui.main_menu_background = "bg main_menu". And, there you have it, the background is done.

Hope that helps those of you who were just as confused as I was.

Actually, I've done something like this before without tooltips:
I made a mainmenu that when you clicked on a particular square, Information was written in the middle of the screen and then you could start with that.

hotspot ( xx, xx, xx, xx) clicked SetVariable ("yyyyy","zzzzz")

if yyyy == zzzz:
add image.png:
xpos 960
ypos 450

if yyyy == zzzz:
text "Lalala":
size 48
xpos 960
ypos 450

hotspot(xx, xx, xx, xx) action Start("zzzz")

This is all I can remember from that old code. I don't have access to that computer anymore as it had stopped working over a year ago on me, but this is what I remember. Sorry if something is off.
