Several questions...And a praise to the developers!

#1 Post by bluedragon77 »

1)I have found the character creator,and so far I think it is awesome.Is there anything similar for backgrounds?
2)Let's say that at one point I want to increase one variable in the code for +1.However I want to inform the player that the variable has been increased or the flag has been changed.I have seen this done in several ren'py based games,usually via text bubbles.How do I do that?
3)Is it possible to learn python from Ren'py?I am already a decent programmer in some other languages(C,C++,Java,QML).Learning python is one of my goals for using Ren'py.

Oh and I want to thank all the developers of Ren'py,because your product is awesome and helps out Linux gaming a lot!I am an exclusive Linux user and Ren'py is one of the first things I install on my Linux boxes!

Your thread is, partially, about Ren'Py, so I'm moving it.

To answer 2:

Code: Select all

$ stat += 1
"Your stat has just risen by 1 and is now [stat]."

That is certainly one way,but I thought about something more like this the way it is done in Long live the queen,for the main characters emotions.

To answer #1...not that I know of. Thought go to the creative commons thread...there are a lot of free backgrounds. Check out Uncle Mugen's thread.
To answer #3...If you really want to learn Python, I recommend the free Python beginners course from codeacademy.com They say it about 13 hours, but if you know other languages, you'll finish it faster.
