Help..!! The character sprite didn't show up

#1 Post by Nagisa.cane » Mon Nov 04, 2013 5:26 am

I tried to fix it,over and over again,but it still didn't show up..
Where did I do wrong?

I already wrote in script;
Image ara4 = "ara4.png"

And in label;

"...word.."
Show ara4
"..word.."
But it still didn't show up..!! I have another sprite like the same too,, I already put the image in game directory...

Can you please tell me what wrong exactly?? >_<" I need your help

First don't capitalize the "S" in "Show". It should say:

Code: Select all

    show ara4
Try that out and let me how it goes :>.

Don't capitalize the "I" in image. And make sure "ara4.png" is the right name of the image.

You may have to show your actual script since there isn't much to go on in your example.

Thanks for uploading part of your script. If it's easier for you next time you can just copy/paste parts of the script into your post.

And I don't mean to just leave when I'm trying to help you but I've got to go to sleep now v.v (it's past 4:00am here). I'll look at it tomorrow though (unless someone has already helped you by then).

Maybe the indentation is the problem?

Code: Select all

label start:
    show ara1   # correct indentation. This belongs to label start
show ara 1  # incorrect

Can you compress your script in a zip file and upload it as an attachment? This way someone will be able to examine it and locate the problem.

No, sorry! You must be mistaking me for someone else.

I had this issue before...
I fixed it by doing this: (Using your problem as an example)

(I assume your character's name is "ara")

Code: Select all

image ara 1 = "ara1.png"
ara will be the keyword of the character, so when you switch expressions, the image will replace the previous.
It might be linked somehow to that...

(Then of course, change the "show ara1" to "show ara 1")

Hope that helps... (I'm a newbie with Ren'py... but still... I'll try to help ^^; Even though I'm sure there are people more qualified than myself)
