Application Version screen inconvenience, rolls back after error in format, it shows wrong format itself

#1 Post by muffintosh » Wed Oct 03, 2018 3:34 am

When we want to build a package with renpy it asks for the applicaton's version in only dots and digits.
There are things that is not very good here:
1- It shows the field filled with alpha numeric characters, it is misleading. Better it leaves it empty.
2- When a user proceeds like that then it throws and Error and rollbacks to building screen and all the previous user input are gone.
3- Why it shows Ren'Py's version? maybe as a sample, if so it is contradictory to format and description in text above it.

Are you trying to build the tutorial as a android gamer? That's not supported.
