Characters not matched with sprites

#1 Post by briarbun » Mon Jan 13, 2020 10:03 pm

When I load up my project, none of the sprites for any characters are displayed, only the default shadow, the sprites name, and attribute are shown. Eventually even this stops, and the following error comes up:

Code: Select all

I'm sorry, but an uncaught exception occurred.

While running game code:
  File "game/script.rpy", line 50, in script
    a happy "Well, let's put them away together okay?"
Exception: Say has image attributes (u'happy',), but there's no image tag associated with the speaking character.

This is my code for the character in question:

Code: Select all

a = Character(_("Addison"), color="#ffe4b8")

Code: Select all

image side addison happy = "images/sprites/addison happy.png"
I'm very new to all of this, so its probably something really simple, but I can't get my head around it.

I think you forgot something you forgot to put image="addison" the code that you are using is for side images

Code: Select all

a = Character(_("Addison"), color="#ffe4b8", image="addison")
then is a sentence it would be like this

Code: Select all

a happy "Hello there I'm happy person"

Thank you! I knew it was something stupid on my end.
