Character name not showing up?

#1 Post by LiveTurkey » Tue Jul 31, 2018 12:36 pm

This seems to be a strange bug.

I define a character

Code: Select all

define y = Character('Yun', color="#000")
I jump to intro seq

Code: Select all

label start:
    $ _game_menu_screen = "navigation"
    scene black 
    $ name = " "
    jump introSeq
I try to say something with the character

Code: Select all

y "tests"
y " erwerwerwe"
But instead of "Yun" showing up all I get is a dot/period where her name should be. This is happening for all characters even when the MC which the player names themselves.

isn't this because the character name and the background color are both black? change it to define y = Character('Yun', color="#fff") and see what happens
