Does not expect a block

Code: Select all

I'm sorry, but errors were detected in your script. Please correct the
errors listed below, and try again.

File "game/script.rpy", line 54: Line is indented, but the preceding statement statement does not expect a block. Please check this line's indentation.

Ren'Py Version: Ren'Py 7.3.5.606
Sun Feb 09 12:22:21 2020

Code: Select all

label layeredimage1:
    hide h
    'Begin Test'
layeredimage her:
    always:
        'h_base'

    group outfit:
        attribute top:
            'h_top_base'
        attribute jeans:
            'h_pants_base'

    group eyes:
        attribute open default:
            'h_eyes_base'

    group mouth:
        pos (100, 100)
        attribute default:
            'h_mouth_base'
        attribute happy:
            'h_mouth_smile'
    'The test should be running'
        jump nextscene
        
label beachscene:
...etc
Line 54 is the onscreen text 'The test should be running'. I try indenting the jumpscene further and further, but that doesn't work, and doesn't make sense anyway. The next scene (beachscene) is one that should be skipped over by a previous choice, and the scene after that is nextscene.

This is my first effort at getting a layered image to work, and before this issue popped up the images didn't appear anyway (although the paths are correct). I got no error for that though, so that's a problem for another day.

I am new to writing games, and this is something that I have already been advised to work up to gradually, and fair enough, but I would like to get it working once before putting it aside.
What, spy on our spy as he searches for their spy? Why not, sounds rather like fun.

Indenting is not the problem. The 'jump to different label' should not be in your definition of the layered image at all.
Defining a layered image will not in itself show the image. You need a separate command for that.


try this

Code: Select all


layeredimage her:
    always:
        'h_base'

    group outfit:
        attribute top:
            'h_top_base'
        attribute jeans:
            'h_pants_base'

    group eyes:
        attribute open default:
            'h_eyes_base'

    group mouth:
        pos (100, 100)
        attribute default:
            'h_mouth_base'
        attribute happy:
            'h_mouth_smile'
