SyntaxError ([none], line 1) in DSE 4 eval calculations

#1 Post by verysunshine » Sun Jan 21, 2018 5:58 pm

I already asked Qirian about this, and they also don't know what's going wrong.

The following SyntaxError appears when the schedule screen is called.

Code: Select all

I'm sorry, but an uncaught exception occurred.

While running game code:
  File "game/days_script.rpy", line 42, in script
    call screen day_planner(["Morning", "Afternoon", "Evening"])
  File "renpy/common/000statements.rpy", line 471, in execute_call_screen
    store._return = renpy.call_screen(name, *args, **kwargs)
  File "game/dse-day_planner.rpy", line 50, in execute

I have done quite a bit of digging and testing to try to isolate the problem. I have isolated the problematic line to "$ show_this = eval(should_show)" and "$ enable = eval(enable)". They share the same issue, as there does not appear to be any information on what to calculate. In the demo game, which works, there also doesn't appear to be any information on what should_show actually does.

Code: Select all

 vbox:
                            style "dp_choice_vbox"                                                    
                            for name, curr_val, enable, should_show in this_period.acts:
                                $ show_this = should_show # returns the same as show_this = True, should calculate if events should appear or not
                                #$ show_this = eval(should_show) #ERROR BEGINS WITH THIS LINE
                                $ enable = eval(enable)

                                $ selected = (selected_choice == curr_val)
                        
                                if show_this:
                                    if enable:
                                        textbutton name action SetField(store, this_period.var, curr_val)
                                    else:
                                        textbutton name
            
                                if show_this and enable and selected:
                                    $ valid_choice = True

                            if not valid_choice:
                                $ can_continue = False
Any help is greatly appreciated!
