Ren'Py 7.3.4 Released

#1 Post by PyTom » Tue Oct 08, 2019 9:56 pm

I'm happy to announce Ren'Py 7.3.4, a further patch to Ren'Py 7.3. This fixes two major graphical glitches, and also adds the ability to pass "[prefix_]" to image names everywhere, rather than only in styles. The graphical issues are pretty major and can manifest in reasonable circumstances, so I recommend everyone upgrade from 7.3.3 to 7.3.4.

Please take a look at the changelog for everything that's new in 7.3.3 and 7.3.4.

I think the audio folder it's a very good idea. I've updated to and created a new empty game.. and the "audio" directory is not there. Is this a bug or intended? Am I missing something?
I think that, like the empty "images" directory is created, also an empty "audio" directory should be created. Otherwise many creators won't even know that's a thing.
And it'd be nice if it's accessible from the launcher ("Open directory" section), as game, base, images and gui folders are.

You can edit the renpy common files to add an audio folder accessible from the launcher.
I added one myself back in 6.99, but unless Pytom adds it, you'll have to add it yourself every time you update because it gets overwritten.

I'll try to find which file you need to edit when I'm able to check.
