Cannot hide screen Say

#1 Post by agl » Sat Jan 13, 2018 10:58 am

Hi.
Sometimes screen say don't hide automatically if none of output text at this moment. So it is block the bottom edge of the screen, even if there is no text. For example:

Code: Select all

character1 "blah-blah-blah"

show animation1 with dissolve
$ renpy.pause(delay=1, hard=True)
show animation2 with dissolve
$ renpy.pause(delay=1, hard=True)
show animation3 with dissolve

character1 "blah-blah-blah again"
Even if I insert "hide screen say" at the line after "character1 "blah-blah-blah"" it does not hide and blocks bottom edge of the animation.

Related question:
If I use the "centered" the dialog window splash for a moments, then hide and centered text appeared. The same thing happens when you change the "centered" to another sayer - the window flashes, disappeared and appeared again.
