Inventory Window

#1 Post by wellsgrant » Wed Mar 13, 2019 9:37 pm

I was wondering if there is a way to set up an inventory system in RenPy that can be opened with they keyboard key "i". Any help would be very appreciated!
I'm running out of variable names...

You can create your own screen, and on the quick menu screen create a key that opens in. You just add "key "K_i" action ShowMenu("inventory") and it will allow the player to access the menu from whenever the quick menu is shown. Which is pretty much the entire time. Look in the Cookbook section, there are a couple good example scripts that still work as a foundation for these kinds of systems.
