Separating displayed text from code in Ren'py script files

#1 Post by Vogue » Fri Apr 29, 2016 6:49 pm

Hey all. I'm trying to figure out how I can quickly/grammatically get my game's script in a document without needing to comb my way through the entire script file.

To illustrate this: in the example below, I want to keep the text inside of quotes and get rid of the rest.

Code: Select all

hide logosctitle
    hide logovntitle
    hide logo2title
    if not persistent.day9:
        "SC2VN is a visual novel about StarCraft in South Korea and the people who play it."
 
        "If you are new to eSports or StarCraft, you can watch a short, voice-acted scene that will introduce you to professional StarCraft."
 
        "Or, you can watch the scene later in the extras menu and get right into the action."
        window hide dissolve
        $persistent.day9 = True
        menu:
            "I want to learn more about StarCraft.":
                jump day9scene
            "I'll watch it later.":
                Pass
Is there a simple way that this is typically done?

The Renpy launcher has an "extract dialogue" option.
You could use that to create a tab separated file, open it in a spreadsheet application, then copy the lines you want into a text document.

Sick, I didn't even realize. That makes this extremely simple. Thanks!
