save/load slot customize question[SOLVED]

#1 Post by Scribbles » Thu Dec 07, 2017 9:07 am

Is there a way to add a layer onto the hovered slow buttons for Save/Load/Delete?

I'd like a opaque text "Save" "Load" show up when the player hovers over a slot, not sure how to do that since both save/load use the same "slots" screen

this is sorta what I'd like it to look like: (and then "Load" if the player was trying to load)

I imagine this is the code I need to adjust, I'm just not sure how to do it in a way that it'll adjust based on if the user is trying to save or load?

(i'd also like to add a little "X" button in the top corner and then adjust it so the player knows they are about to delete a save - not fully sure how I'm going to do that bit yet but any tips would be appreciated :) ! )

You can check which screen is showing using renpy.get_screen (https://www.renpy.org/doc/html/screen_p ... get_screen ) and use if/else statements to show screen-specific elements.

I figured out I could add the "hovered option to the button to do... something when the button was hovered over, but I can't find a good action that just shows an image :-/

Code: Select all

                    button:
                        action FileAction(slot)
                        
                        hovered #show image??? 

                        has vbox

                        add FileScreenshot(slot) xalign 0.5

                        text FileTime(slot, format=_("{#file_time}%A, %B %d %Y, %H:%M"), empty=_("empty slot")):
                            style "slot_time_text"

                        text FileSaveName(slot):
                            style "slot_name_text"
                            

                        key "save_delete" action FileDelete(slot)

I ended up just changing "Page #" to be "Save" or "load" so I'll go ahead and mark this as solved > <
