That's what I thought as well... but I just made releasese via Renpy (Build distributions) - and those contain the *.rpy-files. I thought it only contained the actual rpyc-files? Do I have to go through and modify the zip afterwards manually? That seems... counterproductive.

It depends if the game was archived, which so far, all the games I've played have been.

I guessed the game was distributed with non compiled parts as the OP ( Yoloxd2300 ) posted the contents of 00start.py which I had figured ( yup, without first checking ) would also be distributed compiled...
I see now that the /renpy/ folder contains .py non compiled files even in games that distribute only .rpa or .rpyc for content.

So saying, I do have quite a few games that have been distributed in non compiled, non archived fashion, so there is a slim chance his (her) one might have a script.py ...

Im sorry im taking your time :(
Least i can do is providing you the game
I guess the extraction process was interrupted for any reason, or the zip archive you try to extract is damaged.

Try to extract the zip archive again and if this doesn't help download it again.

Okay that make a major difference.
This board is mostly about questions regarding creating games, rather than getting them to play.

That said though, I don't know of any rules against asking for help and I don't see how it'd hurt.

Now for the bad news: if you get that error while trying to play the game, it means there is an uncaught error in the build. Most of the time, there is nothing you can do.
At least, as far as I know. I may be wrong.

Your best course of action is to contact the developer (did they leave any contact info? Did you get the game from an 'official' source?)
We won't be able to help much with already compiled games, at least, not legally.

Mentioning the name of the game would help. Do not worry if it is an embarrasing title or similar - nobody here is critical of such things. You play what you want to, as long as it doesn't feature certain illegal things (such as CP), nobody here will care.

Ok, the game is nesh morgan slaveholder, as long as i know it doesnt have CP at all, Its like a teaching feeling i guess

I took a look at the game. It appears to be a Russian to English translation.

I have no idea how translation works and cannot make heads or tales of the script.rpy file
Sorry, I can't help further.

You'll find the script.rpy file in the "English" folder.
