Ren'Py Questions and Announcements

#1 Post by thehay95 » Wed Sep 05, 2018 2:41 am

Simple question, but I've been trying everything to get a code to work where the character slides downwards off screen (he's falling onto the floor so I wanna make it kinda sudden?

Code: Select all

"Line of dialog"
pause 0.5
## character quickly sliding down offscreen, immediately transitioning to:
scene vcg1 with vpunch

If I understand correctly, what you want can be done with ATL (that's Animation and Transformation Language):

Code: Select all

transform slide_down:

    linear .5 ypos 2. #if using floating numbers you can omit the 0 to save yourself some typing

label start:
    scene vcg1

    show eileen at truecenter

    "Line of dialog"

    pause .5 

    show eileen at slide_down

    pause .1

    scene vcg1 with vpunch

    pause .1

Yes, ATL transforms always give you better results. You will find another "falling to the ground" example here:
