This is the right place for Ren'Py help. Please ask one question per thread, use a descriptive subject like 'NotFound error in option.rpy' , and include all the relevant information - especially any relevant code and traceback messages. Use the code tag to format scripts.
Is it possible to make a game with more than one window in Ren'Py? Like, is it possible to have a game where these multiple windows affect each other at the same time?
Say, a game where you work for the NSA. One window could show the "target" as they go on with their lives, talking to people and that kinda stuff. Another window would be where you get to play "hacking" minigames that would occasionally pop-up as the story progresses, and without which you would be unable to progress.
Is such an idea possible in Renpy?
The ideal scenario would be that there would be two executables that would open a window each; "camera", and "hacktool". But if that isn't possible, I've heard about child windows and how they can be "dragged" outside the main game window; if so, how would you go about doing it?
I only know enough about programming to make a choice-based game with splashscreens and stuff, so do go easy on me hahaha
Thank you for our time!

I don't know if you can make the two interact, but you could probably fudge something together using multi persistent data and affect both via save files.
I cannot, however, envisage how this feature would be useful on any device with less than two screens.
Anyway, you can always split the single game window in two, by savvy use of screens (or use in-game pop-ups for multi-level experiences). I think is the more logical and faster way to obtain such behaviour.
