Different namebox for each character

#1 Post by Looji » Thu Oct 03, 2019 6:23 am

DISCLAIMER I'm not English, so sometimes my explanations can be a bit weird, sorry about that. Also, I'm an absolute beginner with programming, so sorry if this is a very easy thing to fix.

I have some problems with the nameboxes in my ren'py game.
Right now I want each character to have its own namebox (its own image file) instead of a written name. I know it's do-able since I had it working before, unfortunately, I lost those files.

This is what I want to achieve (it's a mock-up of my GUI design)
So instead of basic code

Code: Select all

define el = Character ("Elijah")
I want to give each character their own namebox image.
(hopefully, it's understandable)

I tried looking it up on the internet, and what I saw a lot was editing the "Say_two_window" in screens.rpy - but I am unable to find it anywhere in my files. So maybe, it's outdated? Besides, I remember my working code having to add the image in the "defining characters" part of the code.

Again sorry if it's an easy thing, and I'm just stupid haha. Any help would be much appreciated!
