How do you make the game scriptly delete files in renpy

#1 Post by Just A Game Dev » Mon Jan 01, 2018 3:32 pm

I'm working on a renpy game which involves a lot of messing with one character's files (cause it has character files that I added)
And for a layer of mystery I want the character file of her to disappear everytime she's off screen and appear when she's on screen.
(Kind of like a mechanism from doki doki literature club) And I want other files to appear to add a layer of mystery.

Does anyone know how to do that since I'm a total newb

First, no question can be stupid, only answer can be.

Second, you will probably need to use python instead of ren'py language to do what you want. Try to do a google search on how to create, write and delete file in python, that might push you in the right direction.

Also, never forget the Ren'Py manual: https://www.renpy.org/doc/html/. This is where I find most of the answer I'm looking for.
