Yes/No prompt screen transition

#1 Post by tigersmurf » Wed Jul 31, 2013 7:01 pm

So I checked out http://www.renpy.org/doc/html/config.html in order to find the code for making a dissolve transition when entering and exiting the yes/no prompt screen. But the "config.enter_yesno_transition = dissolve" crashes my game when I try to add it to the options screen with all the other menu transition configurations.

It says that the config code is not recognized. So, is that an old code? Or am I just missing something?

All my menus look great, except it's very jarring that when exiting the game (or saving over a file or deleting a save or loading, etc) there's no transition. The screen just abruptly appears. Can someone help me fix this?

Have you gone into your options.rpy and adjusted these?

Code: Select all

    ## Transitions.

    ## Used when entering the game menu from the game.
    config.enter_transition = fade

    ## Used when exiting the game menu to the game.
    config.exit_transition = fade

    ## Used between screens of the game menu.
    config.intra_transition = dissolve

    ## Used when entering the game menu from the main menu.
    config.main_game_transition = fade

    ## Used when returning to the main menu from the game.
    config.game_main_transition = fade

    ## Used when entering the main menu from the splashscreen.
    config.end_splash_transition = fade

    ## Used when entering the main menu after the game has ended.
    config.end_game_transition = fade

    ## Used when a game is loaded.
    config.after_load_transition = fade

    ## Used when the window is shown.
    config.window_show_transition = dissolve

    ## Used when the window is hidden.
    config.window_hide_transition = dissolve

I have. That's why I'm confused.

Because when I enter this line:

Code: Select all

config.enter_yesno_transition = dissolve
I get this error:

I'm sorry, but an uncaught exception occurred.

While executing init code:
File "game\options.rpy", line 14, in script

I wonder if it's because your Additional transition is interfering with the ones in Options?
-- My Yes/No screen does dissolve, but all I did was adjust the code above. I didn't add anything new to Options.

You need to capitalize Dissolve so like

Code: Select all

config.enter_yesno_transition = Dissolve

Hmm, capitalizing dissolve didn't work. I'm still getting the message that it's not a recognized configuration command. This is pretty strange. I wonder if it has anything to do with something else that I've changed.

Try:

Code: Select all

init -1 python:
    config.enter_yesno_transition = dissolve

Hmm, I just tried the init -1 python method and that also gave me the same error message.

I'm sorry, but an uncaught exception occurred.

File "game\options.rpy", line 282, in script
File "game\options.rpy", line 283, in python

I suppose I can live with the abrupt yes/no screen transition. It's just a little sad after everything else I've managed to solve over the last few months to be undone by a seemingly innocuous piece of simple code.

I think this is the source of your problem:
tigersmurf wrote: Ren'Py 6.14.1.366
Screen transition for yes/no screen is a new feature. Maybe you should try updating your Ren'Py? :wink:

And the use of "dissolve" is correct, not "Dissolve", because "dissolve" is a transition, while "Dissolve" is a transition constructor (ie. you need to supply more information to it before it become a transition). :(

Okay, so I just did the update to the latest version of Ren'py. The game is no longer crashing with the config.enter_yesno_transition = dissolve code.

However, it still doesn't actually dissolve when entering and exiting that screen. What's the deal?

For the effect when exiting, you need to set exit_yesno_transition instead.
Now for the issue with entering, try changing to

Code: Select all

config.enter_yesno_transition = blinds
to see if something interesting happen.
Also, perhaps you need to describe in more details. How exactly did you activate that yes/no screen?

Very interesting. So, the *exit* transition is working perfectly when I set them both to "blinds" but the enter transition still won't show up no matter which way I try to activate it. (I've tried deleting a save, loading from in game, selecting "quit," and closing out of the window.

Re: Yes/No prompt screen transition (solved)

#13 Post by tigersmurf » Sat Aug 03, 2013 9:29 am

Solved it. I had some funky bit of code in my screens.rpy.

Code: Select all

    on "show" action With(dissolve)
    
    modal True
I'm not sure if that's something I put in there at some time for some reason or another, or if it's just from Ren'Py. But removing it finally did the trick. I'm surprised it took me so long to figure out.

Thanks for all the responses, everyone!
