Side image transition help.

#1 Post by NHRaven » Sat Jun 09, 2018 9:07 pm

So, I've been working with side images. The only hang up is I don't wan't the previous speaker to vanish when either narration or the protagonist is the speaker. Is there a simple clause to exempt certain lines of speech from the side image transitioning, such that it leaves the character the MC is talking to on the screen? If anyone could help that'd be amazing.

Not that I'm aware of. However, you may be able to trick the player but creating narrator character for each of your NPCs, and use them as the narrator in those instances.

e.g.

Code: Select all

e = Character("Eileen", image="eileen")
en = Character("", image="eileen") # your narrator with eileen picture

label start:
    e "This is Eileen speaking"
    en "This is the narrator speaking, but Eileen's side picture will still show"

Side images. They are tied to the character speaking.
