Main Menu Stuck On Screen...(SOLVED!)

#1 Post by Pandrena » Mon Feb 12, 2018 6:13 pm

I hate to make a whole thread about something that may easily be a simple error on my bit, but I'm at wits end about this "Route Selection" page I'm trying to do and I can't seem to find anyone who's had this problem, at least not as far as I could tell in my searching.... Right now, I have it so that there's a screen that pops up up as a menu command, no different from "preferences" or "start" on the main menu. From there, you're supposed to be able to choose what route to use, and the game decides what label to use.

Code: Select all

screen selectroute1():
        
        default tt = Tooltip("Select a Route")
        
        frame:
            xalign 0.0
            yalign 0.5
        
        hbox:
            imagebutton:
                idle "/images/Ace of Diamonds.png"
                hover "/images/selection/Select1.png"
                action If (  (persistent.deguchiroute), true = [ Jump('deguchiroutestart01') ], false = None )
                hovered tt.Action ("ACE OF DIAMONDS: Deguchi Taki")
            
            imagebutton:
                idle "/images/Ace of Diamonds.png"
                hover "/images/selection/Select1.png"
                hovered tt.Action ("QUEEN OF HEARTS: Hakino-san")
                action If (  (persistent.defaultroute), true = [ Jump('hakinoroutestart01') ], false = None )
            
            imagebutton:
                idle "/images/backcard.png"
                hover "/images/selection/Select1.png"
                hovered tt.Action ("ACE OF SPADES: Uchi Hakino")
                action If (  (persistent.uchiroute), true = [ Jump('uchiroutestart01') ], false = None )
                
        frame:
            hbox:
                xalign 0.5
                yalign 1.0
                text tt.value
Problem is. When you do select one of these images, it does jump to the label listed, perfectly fine!...But the main menu doesn't go away. Everything starts displaying on top of the main menu, even when I choose to change scene/BG! Here's also the code of one of the labels - pretty much the same code for each one.

Code: Select all

label deguchiroutestart01:
    
    scene black
    stop music
    with Pause(2)
    
    hide window
    
    nvljoker "...........A pleasant scent filled the air one evening...Multiple pleasant scents,
               actually, flowing through the air around the town's local, small restaurant."
And here's the only part of the main menu screen I edited, just to add the link to the screen.

Code: Select all

        textbutton _("Route Selection") action ShowMenu("selectroute1")
Augh, sorry to have to ask, but as I'm new to screens and have little idea what I'm actually doing...Does anyone know where I messed up? As far as I know, these are the only codes relevant to what I'm doing... Thank you in advance :o

Is the route selection screen in need of having the main menu visible? If not add this line to the route selection screen:

Code: Select all

tag menu
If it is required, you can manually hide it by inccoperating:

Code: Select all

action Hide("main_menu")

to the actions of the route selection's screen

It didn't seem to have any effect when I chose to hide it manually, but adding "tag menu" certainly worked like a charm, mitoky! I don't know /how/ I missed that, but thank you very much for taking the time to help me. I'll change this topic to "solved"!
