how to make side image disappear[solved]

#1 Post by Panda_nui » Mon Jun 02, 2014 11:57 am

Ok, so before you guys tell me to just delete my

Code: Select all

config.side_image_only_not_showing = False
I actually do want the side image to appear at all times when my other characters are talking.

But when certain events occur in my game, I don't want the side image to be there. (since the MC isn't supposed to be present in that scene)
Is there some way to make them disappear?
I tried hiding the image but it wouldn't work. I'm really stumped. DD:
Is there any suggestions?
Thank you!

I have no idea how professionals(wrestlers) do it, but, I'll tell you how I cut around it.

You can define another character , but without the side image. for example:

image side alisa lol = "somewhereAlisaLoled.png" #alisa is the tag used for the in-character define
image side alisa die = "somewhereAlisaDied.png"

define Alisa = Character('Alisa', color="#d3ffb6",window_left_padding=200, image="alisa") #This is with the side image.
define AlisaN = Character('Alisa', color="#d3ffb6") #without side image
This is pretty much how I use side images
of course, this is just some kind of shortcut I made up because I have no idea how to do it the correct way.
Hope it helps!
somehow.

np :D glad to be of assistance.

On a totally different note, are you, by any chance, interested in joining a writing circle?
