[SOLVED]How to make a custom save screenshot with images?

#1 Post by kawaiinekochama » Thu Sep 19, 2019 1:20 am

Hello. I've planned to use a custom image instead of screenshot when you save a game. And the image is also depends on whose route you're playing.
I've tried to implement the codes myself but I kept getting errors. This is the example from the game Amnesia Crowd on PSP.

I'm sorry if someone has already asked this question. I hope that any of you can guide or help me. Thank you. :)

Maybe you can put a image on the save slot line in screens.rpy, i also would like to make a custom one too, maybe you can do anything about it, you need to find the save file line. And find the line where did the file saves, and maybe you can put a path about your image one..

like this line, find this in screens.rpy, about in the save file slots with the hashtags.

Code: Select all

add FileScreenshot(slot) xalign 0.5
and change it to

Code: Select all

add "images/myupimage.png" xalign 0.5
and try if it is works.


Sry for bad english.

My idea for here is to store the route on the save_name variable then create a condition in the file_slots that will show a custom screenshot of the save file depending on the save_name stored in that save file.

Code: Select all

## In script.rpy

label start:
	$ save_name = "route_1" ## Save the current route in the save_name variable
	
	## Saves from this point and onwards will have a save_name route 1.
	
	"Route 1"
	
label route_2:
	$ save_name = "route_2" ## Save the current route in the save_name variable
	
	## Saves from this point and onwards will have a save_name route 2.
	
	"Route 1"

## In screens.rpy

screen file_slots(title):

	## Some codes before the screenshot of the save file...

                    button:
                        action FileAction(slot)

                        has vbox

			if FileSaveName(slot) == "route_1":
                        	add "route_1.png" xalign 0.5
                        elif FileSaveName(slot) == "route_2":
                        	add "route_2.png" xalign 0.5
                        ## And so on...
