Credits and text after menu, how?

#1 Post by Biotikos » Fri Jul 04, 2014 5:25 pm

Hello, community.
I've recently started to polish my game and therefore, before releasing a beta that I will soon launch in Tenerife -an island in Spain, Canary Islands-, I wanted to place logos and text before the main menu, but I have no clue on how to do it.

Could you guys help me out? Thanks

Hello Biotikos!

You're looking for the special Ren'py labels : http://www.renpy.org/doc/html/label.html#special-labels.
In particular, the splashscreen label should be of use to you.

I noticed, it my fault because I didn't search before asking here.

Sorry, and thank you very much ~
But I have a doubt that I don't see anywhere - when I place a image, it appears on the bottom instead of centered, is it because I have specified "style.default.layout = subtitle? ;_;

I wrote up a tutorial for how to make a splashscreen here. Hope that helps :)

Still having trobules with the position of the image... it won't show in the center, and statements such as "at center" won't work also...

Anyway thanks, I followed your handbook in Tumblr 3:

Perhaps you want:

Code: Select all

show logo at truecenter
[code]

That will center it vertically and horizontally.

It throws me

Code: Select all

File "game/script.rpy", line 46: end of line expected.
    show logo with dissolve at truecenter
               
Anyway what I did was to calculate the difference and add it to the image, so it now appears at the centre, no big deal x)
Thanks anyway, I don't know if I made a mistake anywhere or if it is a bug? -i don't think so-

It has to go in the other order:

Code: Select all

show logo at truecenter with dissolve 
It's best to write it as two lines:

Code: Select all

show logo at truecenter 
with dissolve
