RenPy HotSpot Tool

Hello, I hope I am posting in the correct place. While playing with Renpy I notice that making hotspots wasn't an easy task so made a tool to make it easier. You load your image, set the hotspots and it would generate the code you need to cut and paste into your code. This is the first run if you notice anything just let me know and I will update as soon as I can.

The updated version is only for Windows.

Bless this post! Due to my weird number dyslexia and slippery mind, hotspots are a nightmare. owo;; This should make it so much easier! Thank you!

Updated it, caught a minor bug if you tool the selection left or up instead of the standard right and down. Its ugly now but as I progress on it I hope to make it better looking :D

Interesting.

May I suggest adding a list of common actions that the user can choose from?

Yes I was thinking of that and doing more of the imagemap code and getting the background image reference. Just going milestone by milestone. i am still learning it could you give me the list of common actions to include if that isn't too much trouble??

I'd look at the actions in screens.rpy - you'll need to expand some of them out a bit. I'm not one of the top-tier Ren'Py screen makers, so maybe one of them can help out?

Going through redesign and including attaching actions to the hotspots.
