Making text appear on a different part of the screen(Solved)

#1 Post by Zogunplex » Thu Jul 07, 2011 3:47 pm

Hey-ho howdy do,

I'm a greenie here :mrgreen: trying to figure out how to make text appear at the side of the screen instead of down at the bottom of the screen or filling up the whole screen like in NVL mode. I've looked around the forums trying to find an answer to my question (usually the other threads are extremely helpful when I have questions), but I've found that in this particular instance I just need to ask, since it's so specific.

This is where I want the text to appear. Does anyone know how I can code the game to make the text appear in this part of the screen?

Many thanks for being awesome and helping out folks like me here in the forum!

Well, edit several lines in "options.rpy" of your game (lines about 100 - 120)

Code: Select all

    style.window.yalign = 0.2
    style.window.left_margin = 10
    style.window.right_margin = 500
    style.window.yminimum = 450

Thank you so much! That's just what I needed.

Nice eyebrows, btw. ^-^
