What about updating Python 2.7? Especially platform.py to correctly detect windows version.

PyTom did not create Python 2.7, he cannot update it.
Python does have an update, it is calld Python 3.4, Ren'Py cannot be 'simply updated' to 3.4 without significant work.
PyTom has also stated his intentions to stay with 2.7.

As to the detecting windows version, start > run > winver
If it says Windows 10, this is not a fault with Python, but a fault with Windows x. If it says something else and does not match what tracebacks, etc report, then it may be python.

Sorry for my english. I mean update current version of Python (2.7.10?) in RenPy. Last Python version is 2.7.14 and it contain new platform.py

Changelog from platform.py:

Code: Select all

#    1.0.8 - changed Windows support to read version from kernel32.dll
#    1.0.7 - added DEV_NULL
#    1.0.6 - added linux_distribution()
I`am replacing platform.py at renpy/lib/pythonlib2.7 and it`s correctly detect windows version. But this method is a bad way.

This is probably a really simple syntax problem, but for the life of me, I cannot figure out what I'm doing wrong. All I want is for a bar to descend from off the top of the screen, decrease in value, then rise back up. Here's how I define the bar and its animations (in screens.rpy):

Code: Select all

screen funnybar:
        xalign 0.9 ypos 0
        xanchor 1.0 yanchor 1.0
        xsize 500
            value funny range 100
            left_bar Solid("#0F0")
            right_bar Solid("#F00")
transform descend:
    linear 3.0 ypos 50

transform ascend:
    linear 3.0 ypos 0
Then I try to display the funnybar. But the only things that works is renpy.show_screen("funnybar")!

"show funnybar" generates the default "image not found" silhouette, "screen funnybar" doesn't show anything, so I have to use the renpy.show_screen() python statement. Then I try to apply the transform, and that's where I'm completely stuck: renpy.show_screen() doesn't take a transform, so I don't know how to make it drop down from there.

Can transforms simply not be applied to screens? Am I fundamentally misunderstanding the role of screens? Should I be composing funnybar out of Displayables instead? I hope I can still take advantage of a smooth animation when the bar's value is decreased...

Thank you for any help/guidance!

edit: tried to make a Displayable version instead. Can't get it to display. This is my approach so far:

Code: Select all

define green = Solid("#0F0", xfill=True, yfill=True)
define red = Solid("#F00", xsize=400, yfill=True)
define fbar = HBox(green, red, xpos=500, ypos=500, xsize=500, ysize=50)
Not sure why this one is going wrong either. Any advice?

edit2: Okay, got it. Here's my code -- if anyone wants to look over this and tell me if I made anything more complicated than necessary, I'd appreciate the advice. There's definitely room for improvement, but as this is just used for a brief visual gag, I didn't bother making it a really robust "class".


Code: Select all

        def show_green(st, at):
            # improvements: replace the globals with local variables; make timing based on clock, not on refreshes
            global target_width, displayed_width
            if target_width < displayed_width:
                displayed_width -= 2
            elif target_width > displayed_width:
                displayed_width += 2
            return Solid("#0F0", xsize=displayed_width, yfill=True), 0.005
    define dynamic_green = DynamicDisplayable(show_green)
    define red = Solid("#F00", xfill=True, yfill=True)
    define barback = Solid("#FFF", xfill=True, yfill=True, xanchor=0.5, yanchor=0.5)
    define inner_bar = HBox(dynamic_green, red, xsize=400, ysize=30, xanchor=0.5, yanchor=0.5)
    # note: the thing you want to put on screen needs to be an "image"!
    image fbar = Fixed(barback, inner_bar, xsize=404, ysize=34, xanchor=0.5, yanchor=1.0, xpos=0.95, ypos=0)
Then I can use fbar with Positions and Transforms, just like I want, while also changing its appearance by setting the value of "target_width" (for a gradual change) or both "target_width" and "displayed_width" (for an immediate change).

I hope this helps someone?

Can someone explain like I'm 5 how to dissolve multiple images, I still don't understand. I do know how to do time dissolves but not multiple. Thanks in advance!
