[Solved] Changing color of text for the notify function.

#1 Post by SpicyMayo1429 » Wed Mar 13, 2019 9:36 pm

I've gotten the function to work, but since I've updated versions I can't seem to figure out how to change the color of the text for the notify function. I only want specific parts to have a different color, not the whole thing.

Here's the code that I initially used :

Code: Select all

$ renpy.notify('Keypoint unlocked: {color=#ff0000}Erotica{/color}') ## Here is the notification that shows on screen. 
## The color tag should change the color of text within the tag.
    ## This is what we are unlocking. Keypoint 1: Erotica
    $ persistent.unlock_tip_1 = True ## This triggers the unlocking system so it is now accessible in the menu.
It worked fine in version 6.99.8 but now it'll show the tag in the notification instead of changing color.

Code: Select all

Keypoint unlocked: {color=#ff0000}Erotica{/color}

Find this in your screens code

Code: Select all

screen notify(message):

    zorder 100
    style_prefix "notify"

    frame at notify_appear:
        text "[message!tq]"

    timer 3.25 action Hide('notify')
See [message!tq] change it to [message] and it works for me again.
