Error text, end of line expected etc... What is wrong?

I'm sorry, but errors were detected in your script. Please correct the
errors listed below, and try again.

I honestly don't see my mistake from reading this. If anyone has run into these errors before, please just point out how to correct these annoying things. Hampering progress.

"say statement does not expect a block. Please check the indentation of the line after this one."

- means that most likely the line after the indicated one has been indented too much. Delete spaces from the front of it until it lines up with the above line.

"end of line expected."

- I think it wants you to place each section of text on a seperate line; so instead of

"So this is her sister i wounder what she is going to do to me or worse what is happening to my sister!" "Curse my self for being weak" "What are they any way?"

you need

"So this is her sister. I wonder what she is going to do to me; or, worse, what is happening to my sister!"
"Curse myself for being weak."
"What are they anyway?"

"menu statement expects a non-empty block."

- means your menu needs something in it.

I'm 99% sure that all those "say statement does not expect a block. Please check the indentation of the line after this one." errors are because you did your menus wrong.

This is how to make a branching choice:
PyTom wrote:

Code: Select all

menu: 
    "Question One: What is 2+2?":
    "4":
         $ corrects += 1
    "5":
         $ corrects += 0
so what you probably need is something like (on line 108):

Code: Select all

menu:
   "What should I do?"
   "Take X action":
      jump X
   "Take Y action":
      jump Y

I keep getting an end of line error it looks like this: File "game/script.rpy line 18: end of line expected.

b "I love this wouldn't change it for anything"


with script looking like this:
label start:
a "I am sticking to something simple"

b "I know this is ridiculous"

a "How do you feel about all this?"

menu:
b "I love this. I wouldn't trade it for anything":

jump Ilovet

b "I hate this":

jump Ihatet
label Ilovet:

a "You are weird"
return
label Ihatet:

a "Yeah me, too"
return

I can't figure out what's wrong?

Firstly, menu choices cannot have a character speaking them...
Secondly, you will find it far more readable if you un-indent all labels back to zero.
Thirdly, a prior post had a menu caption with a colon at the end ( "Question One: What is 2+2?": ) which is wrong.

So:

Code: Select all

label start:
    a "I am sticking to something simple"

    b "I know this is ridiculous"

    a "How do you feel about all this?"

    menu:
        "I love this. I wouldn't trade it for anything":

            jump Ilovet

        "I hate this":

            jump Ihatet
            
label Ilovet:

    a "You are weird"
    return
    
label Ihatet:

    a "Yeah me, too"
    return

I'm also having a similar problem.... and I can't quite figure out what's happening.

I'm attempting to make a character selection map using a screen imagebutton and I'm failing pretty miserably. If someone could help me out, that'd be awesome.

So here's my error:

Code: Select all

I'm sorry, but errors were detected in your script. Please correct the
errors listed below, and try again.


File "game/script.rpy", line 15: end of line expected.
    hide screen charaselect() :
                           ^

File "game/script.rpy", line 28: end of line expected.
    hide screen charaselect() :
                           ^

Ren'Py Version: Ren'Py 7.2.1.457
Fri Mar 22 16:02:00 2019
Here's the screen I made in the "screen.rpy" file:

Code: Select all

###################### Chara Selection ################################
# This is an example code used to create a character selection screen.

# First, define a screen - name it whatever you want. I named this one "charaselect".
screen charaselect():
    tag charaselect # Names the menu so that it doesn't create multiples.
    modal True # This forces the game to pause to allow the player to select a choice.

    add chara_bg # You don't have to add a backround if you don't want to.

    # These are your image buttons.
    imagebutton:
        idle "images/2B_Default.png"
        hover "images/2B_Hover.png"
        xalign 0.2 yalign 0.5
        focus_mask True
        action Jump('sample1')
    imagebutton:
        idle "images/Ahri_Default.png"
        hover "images/Ahri_Hover.png"
        xalign 0.2 yalign 0.5
        focus_mask True
        action Jump('sample2')
 
 
....and here is my "script.rpy" file:

Code: Select all

# The script of the game goes in this file.

# Go ahead and declare your characters. Note: Do not use numbers - it glitches.

define A = Character("2B", image= "chara1")
define B = Character("Ahri", image= "chara2")

# The game starts here.

label start:
    scene chara_bg # Your background.
    show screen charaselect() # Shows the chara selection that was made in the "screens.rpy" file.

    label sample1: # This is where chara1 will start.
    hide screen charaselect()

        show chara1: # Shows chara image.
            xalign 0.2 yalign 0.5 # Position of the chara image.

        A "Congratulations are in order."
        A "You have successfully chosen me as the start of your adventure. How do you feel?"

        jump ending

        return # Ends game.

    label sample2:
    hide screen charaselect()

        show chara2: # Shows chara image.
            xalign 0.2 yalign 0.5 # Position of the chara image.

        B "Glad you made it this far, Brave Adventurer."
        B "Now get moving and create your own chara selection screen!"

        jump ending

    return # Ends game.
    
I've tried multiple variations such as renaming, removing colons, removing parenthesis, adding parenthesis, adding colons, etc. No matter combination I use, I keep getting the same error, and if I remove them altogether, I get an enormous error list. I would seriously appreciate it if someone could point out what the heck I'm doing wrong. :/ The lines that say "hide screen charaselect" are my problem lines that I've done the combos on.

Code: Select all

label start:
    scene chara_bg # Your background.
    show screen charaselect() # Shows the chara selection that was made in the "screens.rpy" file. # actually no need to add the () here unless passing arguments

label sample1: # This is where chara1 will start. # un-indented back to the fold
    hide screen charaselect # never use () on hide

    show chara1: # Shows chara image.
        xalign 0.2 yalign 0.5 # Position of the chara image.

    A "Congratulations are in order."
    A "You have successfully chosen me as the start of your adventure. How do you feel?"

    jump ending

    return # Ends game.

label sample2: # un-indented back to the fold again
    hide screen charaselect # no ()

    show chara2: # Shows chara image.
        xalign 0.2 yalign 0.5 # Position of the chara image.

    B "Glad you made it this far, Brave Adventurer."
    B "Now get moving and create your own chara selection screen!"

    jump ending

    return # Ends game.
