On line 32 of C:\Documents and Settings\Jaja\My Documents\GAME MAKER\BLACK HAWK CASE/game/script.rpy: expected statement.
style.mm_root_window.background = Image("BLACK HAWKmmw.jpg")

My guess would be that you are missing $ on the beginning of the line:

Code: Select all

$ style.mm_root_window.background = Image("BLACK HAWKmmw.jpg")
Better way to change the background would be probably just to change the mm_root="#..." line in options.rpy file.
Practice makes purrrfect.
Finished projects: Broken sky .:. colorless day .:. and few more...

Find this code in your options.rpy:

Code: Select all

## The background of the main menu. This can be a color
        ## beginning with '#', or an image filename. The latter
        ## should take up the full height and width of the screen.
        mm_root = "#dcebff",
Replace with:

Code: Select all

mm_root = "BLACK HAWKmmw.jpg",
