Programming the GUI

#1 Post by RavenBelmont » Thu Jul 17, 2014 10:32 am

Hello there ladies and gentlemen! I'm here to ask for advice regarding implementing a GUI on a renpy project. The thing is that I currently have an artist working on a GUI for a project of mine but I haven't really learned how to make it work.

I know that the artist will send me all the files necessary for me to make it work and have the game looking pretty, but I was wondering if any of you might be willing to help me understand how to do it.

Are there any tutorials or guides regarding implementing GUIs? Somebody can explain me how to do it?

Thanks a lot!

Try taking a look at this thread by Aleema: http://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewtopic.php?p=127273 I have found it useful while customizing buttons and menu layout.

It's gonna help you a lot if you learn screen language as well so you don't have to use imagemaps.
