use python function for screenshot like s key

#1 Post by pkt » Fri May 31, 2013 8:58 am

I'm trying to save a screenshot to the default directory and have that get triggered about every half a second or so also trying to have a label gets called in the process.
the random all function...

Also may as well ask how to make sliders instead of buttons...had sliders in the game but I didn't know how to get them to update to the screen as they adjusted things...I seen it work before with an older renpy on an older version of the project before I lost my code but meh had to start over...

In Ren'Py, actions are just functions. So you could do Screenshot()() if you really wanted to.

Calling a label might get interesting, as you can't call labels from python code. You could renpy.call_in_new_context a label if you wanted to.

Yes, that will run the screenshot action.

another question is how can I have delay on a screen that then later triggers a jump. I'm gonna use this for an image generator thing.
that screenshot thing didn't work but got some results...
$ renpy.screenshot(1)

but it still didn't make any screenshots show up anywhere I could see...
sorry... :/
