[Solved] Textbutton set variable instead of jumping label?

#1 Post by Rekoija » Thu Jun 11, 2020 11:36 am

Code: Select all

screen colorscreen():
    add "images/boxes/boxes.png"
        textbutton "blue" action Jump("blue"):
            xpos 200 ypos 600

label blue:
    $ color = "Blue"
Is there an easier way of doing this?
Cuz I read through a bunch of textbutton stuff about actions, and if it was explained there, I didn't understand it well enough to realize it was there, lol.

It'd be preferable if the action could set the color to blue without having to have an entire label dedicated to doing such a tiny thing.

Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance!

You'll want the SetVariable action https://www.renpy.org/doc/html/screen_a ... etVariable

Code: Select all

textbutton "blue" action SetVariable("color", "Blue")
