It's Ren'Py 6.99.1.329
I've asked those people to try the "zipped" version. If that works, it's some kind of file permission error, maybe creating the zipfile.txt after game launched in installation directory causes some issue of sorts?

OK one user confirmed that could run the previous version (with older renpy 6.18) just fine on the same system. I noticed that previous versions didn't create that zipfile.txt so I think that's the issue. Maybe creating it inside the game/saves would be enough to fix it? or something else, I don't know :D
For sure happens only on systems with very strict security setting, but as it is prevents Ren'Py game from running (the first time they try to save they get that traceback error).

6.99.3.404 is out.

This release doesn't change Ren'Py proper (except for the version number), but it does fix the issue with zipfile.txt. The problem was some extraneous debugging code I had written to solve an older problem. I'd deleted the .py file with the code, but not the .pyo file (which is like an .rpyc file for python code). The result is that Ren'Py was using the extraneous code, and writing an unnecessary zipfile.txt file in places where it was unwanted and could cause problems.

I think _renpysteam.pyd need to rebuild. The current file didn't contain first line: "version = 1"

The fact that they don't unlock could just be Steam. On my latest game they weren't working until the status of the app was "ready to release" (green). Until it was "for review" (orange) no achievement worked.
But in this case users got an error message :P

Thanks again, Tom. :)

The updater has improved. If an incremental download fails, Ren'Py will try
downloading the complete file before giving up.
Tried the updater and it seems is working now in Hosts where it didn't before (in vnovel.com, probably because of a problem in the server configuration, not in Ren'Py; see http://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewtopic.php?p=298147).
Tested in 6.99.3.404
The same test in 6.99.1.329 throws the error "The update file does not have the correct digest - it may have been corrupted" while downloading the update.

Hi, sorry if this has been answered but i just wanted to confirm, does the new version of renpy automatically include the steam add-ons that are required to make the steam achievements work.

Or do i still need to download that separately and add it to the renpy install folder with the txt file with the app id as we did during the testing... Thanks for confirming.

I'm getting a memory error for one of my games (and only one. I can launch all other projects just fine). Full traceback:

Code: Select all

I'm sorry, but an uncaught exception occurred.

While running game code:
MemoryError: 

-- Full Traceback ------------------------------------------------------------

Full traceback:
  File "C:\Users\Admin\Documents\renpy-6.16.2-sdk\renpy\bootstrap.py", line 288, in bootstrap
    renpy.main.main()
  File "C:\Users\Admin\Documents\renpy-6.16.2-sdk\renpy\main.py", line 410, in main
    renpy.translation.write_updated_strings()
  File "C:\Users\Admin\Documents\renpy-6.16.2-sdk\renpy\translation.py", line 376, in write_updated_strings
    stl = renpy.game.script.translator.strings[renpy.game.preferences.language]
MemoryError: 

Windows-7-6.1.7600
Ren'Py 6.99.3.404
CiikosBridge 0.0
The directory is called renpy-6.16.2-sdk but I updated to 6.99.3.404 from the launcher on May 5. Before that I was running 6.18.3.761 without any issues. I can still run the game fine in 6.18.3.761.

Along with that traceback I'm unable to do Lint or Delete Persistent from the launcher (I get this instead). I tried re-downloading the latest release to see if the error would still occur and it does. I'm not really sure what's causing this...
