NameError: The variable...doesn't exist

#1 Post by ElonMuskIsMyDad » Sun May 16, 2021 5:47 pm

Hello, everyone!

I've run into an issue with one of my screens. I've never had this issue before, but suddenly, my screen was rendered useless.

Here's the error I'm receiving:

Code: Select all

[code]
I'm sorry, but an uncaught exception occurred.

While running game code:
  File "game/script.rpy", line 284, in script
    
  File "game/script.rpy", line 284, in <module>
    
  File "renpy/common/00action_data.rpy", line 79, in get_selected
    return __get_field(self.object, self.field, self.kind) == self.value
  File "renpy/common/00action_data.rpy", line 39, in _m1_00action_data__get_field
    raise NameError("The {} {} does not exist.".format(kind, name))
NameError: The variable has_katia does not exist.

Here's the code in question:

Code: Select all

screen katia_there:
    modal False
    imagebutton:
        xpos 30 ypos 103
        idle "katia.png"
        hover "katia.png"
        action [SetVariable("has_katia", True), Hide("katia_there"), Jump("puzzle003wrong")]

I'm not sure what the problem is. What do you advise?

Thank you!

Hi! You got an error:

Code: Select all

 NameError: The variable has_katia does not exist.
This means you haven't told Ren'Py you have a variable `has_katia`.

You just need to add:

Code: Select all

default has_katia= False
