[Solved] How to disable this page (esc)?

#1 Post by nanashine » Mon May 06, 2019 5:33 pm

Two "newbie" questions hah :lol: :oops: :oops:

When you're playing the game and press "esc", this appears:

I wanted to know how to disable that. You will press "esc" and nothing happens.
I know it sounds crazy, since this is useful. It's just a test I want to make.

And also this black bar in the main screen:

Does anyone know which image that is? I basically made everything inside "gui" folder transparent to discover which image this is, but it's still there hah
I want to delete it (or make it transparent), since it's in front of the screen image I'll use there.

Thank you.

In your script, add
$game_menu = None
That will disable the escape key and right click actions. (kind of, but not really)

The image you see there is in gui/overlay folder (gui/phone/overlay for mobile devices). Either main_menu.png or game_menu.png

Thank you so much! At first it didn't work, so I added this:

Code: Select all

    $ _game_menu_screen = None
And I found the image. Thanks :)

You could also mess around with keybindings if you just want to tie it to an another button. https://www.renpy.org/doc/html/keymap.html
