Dialogue Screen Disappears and Reappears While Characters Change

#1 Post by ArizaLuca » Wed Oct 16, 2019 12:26 pm

When characters on LayeredImages change expression, and it is not in the document labeled script.rpy, the dialogue window will disappear, then reappear. I don't understand what is going on. I checked this:

Code: Select all

define config.window = "'say'"
(With the 'say' screen being defined in a separate document) But it still flashes. I don't understand what's going on?

What does the "say" for or do? The default one is

Code: Select all

define config.window = "auto"
I also tried layered images with this function, it works and nothing is wrong.

Ah, I should've clarified– I wrote this on very little sleep, sorry. I have a completely customized GUI (in which the 'say' function/screen/whichever) is contained; thus this is not a default project with the default GUI.

well we need more info on what you want to do

if you doing a custom gui from scratch then we need the code that you are using

not just one piece of code

can you provide the rest of the code so someone might be able to help you more better

Yep– sorry, it took a while to zip. The folders needed for the GUI to work is 'gui' (the image files needed are inside), 'guiscript' (the script needed), and options.rpy (that has most everything else, including the part where I have the 'define config.window' thing.
