An Exception has occured?

#1 Post by Owl.Child » Fri Feb 17, 2017 8:18 am

I keep getting this error and I'm very confused.

Code: Select all

I'm sorry, but an uncaught exception occurred.

While running game code:
  File "game/script.rpy", line 17, in script
    $ povname = renpy.input(_("What is your name?"))
  File "game/script.rpy", line 17, in <module>
    $ povname = renpy.input(_("What is your name?"))
  File "game/screens.rpy", line 170, in execute
    screen input(prompt):
  File "game/screens.rpy", line 170, in execute
    screen input(prompt):
  File "game/screens.rpy", line 173, in execute

"gui.dialogue_xalign" seem to be missing for some reason. Add the following line after "gui.dialogue_ypos = 50" in "gui.rpy":

Code: Select all

define gui.dialogue_xalign = 0
It should look like:

Code: Select all

## The placement of dialogue relative to the textbox. These can be a whole
## number of pixels relative to the left or top side of the textbox, or 0.5 to
## center.
define gui.dialogue_xpos = 268
define gui.dialogue_ypos = 50
define gui.dialogue_xalign = 0

It looks like you're trying to use a game that requires 6.99.12.3 with 6.99.12.2.

It's the Interactive Director 2000 thingy.
That did the trick.

Thanks!

this is the error I've started getting too! I deleted renpy, reinstalled it, and started a brand new game with *only* the user input code and it pops up > < it's been driving me crazy.

Code: Select all

screen input(prompt):
    style_prefix "input"

    window:

        vbox:
            xpos gui.dialogue_xpos
            xanchor gui.dialogue_xalign
            ypos gui.dialogue_ypos
            xsize gui.dialogue_width

            text prompt style "input_prompt"
            input id "input"


style input_prompt is say_dialogue

style input_prompt:
    properties gui.text_properties("input_prompt")
    xmaximum gui.dialogue_width

style input:
    xmaximum gui.dialogue_width
That's the code it takes me too, why aren't the xpos and so on defined?

oh and this is the code that I put in:

Code: Select all

define pov = Character("[povname]")

default povname = "Pat Smith"

label start:
    $ povname = renpy.input("What is your name?")
    $ povname = povname.strip()

    if not povname:
         $povname = "Pat Smith"

pov "My name is [povname]!"

return

"An Exception has occurred" is the generic start of most errors Ren'Py produces. Scribbles, there's an issue with new games that caused your problems that's been fixed in 6.99.12.4.

I'm going to lock this thread now so it doesn't become a magnet for a ton of unrelated errors.
