[Solved] Textbox keeps dissapearing when transition for character is in work.

#1 Post by Hollace » Thu Jul 27, 2017 5:52 am

Hello, currently I've been trying to make my visual novel more visually appealing which we all know is important to visual novels. I've always disliked the look of the text box disappearing whenever there was a transition, so I had searched up on how to fix this, either the tutorials were outdated or it just doesn't seem to work for me. I've tried the 'window show' command in all different kind of ways, I've tried to fix the codes in the options script, but the tutorial I had found was outdated, but nothing seems to work. Happily, I don't need it fixed right this instant, but I'd love to find a fix for it as soon as possible. I'm sorry if there is already a forum out there that I've overlooked! Thank you in advance.

Odd, this doesn't happen with me, what kind of transition are you working with? Also, which version of Ren'Py are you using? Show Window doesn't work anymore, as said here:
https://www.renpy.org/wiki/renpy/doc/co ... the_Window

Btw, have you tried the dissolve transition?

Code: Select all

with Dissolve()

Yes I have been using dissolve that's why I was so confused and lost on why it was doing this, but I've found out what the problem was; for some reason in my options.rpy my code for my dialogue window was like this:

Code: Select all

define config.window = "hide"
I've changed the hide to auto and it's working perfectly fine now.
