Best way to jump to a label from the main menu?

#1 Post by richycapy » Sat Oct 26, 2019 7:24 pm


Im creating a gallery for my game, however, since there will be images and movies, I cant use the BG Gallery from the forum
I already created a simple "screen" to see an image

Code: Select all

screen verfoto(pic=False):
    modal True zorder 10
    add 'images/splash/gi/'+pic+'.png'
    button background None action Hide('verfoto')
imagebutton auto "images/gui/galeria/thumbs/chloe-imagen-01_%s.png" action Show("verfoto", dissolve, "chloe-imagen-01")
But I dont know how to jump to a lable to see a complete scene... let say the ending, from my gallery page, I would like to "jump" to a label, so it would be something like this:

Code: Select all

screen vervideo(labelname):
    $ replayscene = True
    jump labelname

imagebutton auto "images/gui/galeria/thumbs/chloe-imagen-01_%s.png" action Show("vervideo", dissolve, "labelending")

Code: Select all

label labelending:
    scene black

	.... play somenthing ...
    if replayscene:
        $ replayscene = False
    jump creditsandending
I would apreciate a lot the help with this :D

You can also use Jump() at any labels.
