Button images?

#1 Post by Tomoya » Thu Jun 16, 2011 6:22 am

Hey guys. I just started ren'py about 2 days ago so I'm a noob :( and I was wondering how to make the main menu buttons have images and stuff...

Main Menu:
Image

I want the Start, Load game, Preferences, Help, & Quit to have an image.

I appreciate the help in advanced! :D

You could use an imagemap.

Code: Select all

init -2 python:
    layout.imagemap_main_menu("Ground.jpg", "Hover.jpg", [
        (111, 248, 392 ,313, "Start Game"),
        (111, 313, 392, 378, "Load Game"),
        (48, 432, 237, 529, "Preferences"),
        (48,529,237,576, "Quit"),
        (48, 435, 237, 482, "Help"),
        ])

At least some of those old imagemap layout codes are broken for newer Ren'Py versions. You should use imagemaps using Screen Language. Here's a tutorial.

Really? oo' I'm using Ren'Py 6.12.1 and it works without any problems.

I've personally encountered several problems (the navigation imagemap jumps to mind), but your mileage may vary.
