Displaying elements of a list as menu options.

#1 Post by Zeroized » Sat Oct 24, 2015 11:41 pm

I'm making a selling menu for a RPG, and I need to iterate through whole inventory and display it as a menu option to let the player pick what does it want to sell.
Do I need to create another screen for that? Can I do something like this?

Code: Select all

    for i in inventory:
        "Sell [i.name] for [i.cost]":
            $ gold += i.cost
            $ inventory.remove(i)
Thanks in advance for the answer.

It would probably make more sense to use a screen to do that. You can use the python equivalent of menu if you really want to though. http://www.renpy.org/doc/html/statement ... oice-menus
