Wrongly shown variables and display hidden variables

#1 Post by JanusP » Sun Jan 31, 2021 12:54 am

Display shows (disabled) text when its not supposed to show and be system indicator only.
For the title, it shows as [d20roll] and [TD] instead of the info in variables. Trying to make it show assigned input variables.

Code: Select all

label start:
label choice1:
    "Congratulations to your initiation, there are basic questions needed for authentication"
    $ playerlastname = renpy.input("Enter surname")
    $ playerlastname = playerlastname.strip()
    $ player1stname = renpy.input("Enter Legal name")
    $ player1stname = player1stname.strip()
    $ player_name = player1stname+" "+ playerlastname
    $ player_name = player_name.strip()
    if player_name == "":
        $ player_name="Potential"
	$ donated = renpy.input("Yes or No,Have you donated yet?")
    	if [donated] == "Yes":
		$d20roll = renpy.random.randint(1, 9000)
    	else:
		$d20roll = renpy.random.randint(9001, 10000)
label donum:
	$ donatenum = renpy.input("How much have you donated?")
	if donatenum <= 0:
		$ t = "F2watchton"
	elif donatenum <= 500:
		$ t = "Minnow"
	elif (donatenum > 500) and (donatenum <= 1000):
		$ t = "Goldfish"
	elif (donatenum > 1000) and (donatenum <= 150000):
		$ t= "Swordfish"
	elif (donatenum > 15000) and (donatenum <= 20000):
		$ t = "Dolphin"
	elif (donatenum > 20000) and (donatenum <= 25000):
		$ t = "Whale"
	elif (donatenum > 25000) and (donatenum <= 30000):
		$ t = "Leviathan"
	else:

Re: Wrongly shown variables and display hidden variables

Python is case-sensitive and you use both "Disabled" and "disabled" in different parts of the code. You should change them all to be the exact same case (all "disabled" or all "Disabled").

Your other problem is coming from trying to use [] syntax for interpolation in python, where [] actually means a list. $ TD = [t]+" "+[d20roll] should instead be $ TD = t+" "+str(d20roll). Alternatively just use "Congratulations # [t] [d20roll] ..." instead of "Congratulations # [TD]" and cut out TD entirely.

On another note, defining TD in label final1 but only using it in final2 is a bad idea... if someone answers yes to the title menu question they'll skip the final1 label and so TD won't be defined and they'll get an error. If you do keep the TD variable move its definition to where it's actually used.

This worked to an extent, problem is now it shows clickable choices with (disabled) and an overlay on top of the text but working correctly. I want their role to be switched so it shows as normal choices but is unclickable when its set as disabled and to get rid of black overlay with text.

Are you saying choices with (disabled) are using the insensitive button text color but you want them to use the normal text color? You could style them like normal text instead, just change the style from 'menu_choice' to 'menu_disabled_choice' or whatever and make sure not to give the menu_disabled_choice style the insensitive_color property.

With these adjustments I've managed to make them into a choice format except they still appear as a translucent overlay on top the the same text; but as normal choices. Not sure how to eliminate the overlay without getting rid of disabled format.

...I'm not sure I understand what you're seeing vs. what you want. Can you better explain what you mean by this translucent overlay, maybe show a picture? Maybe share the code you're using for the choice screen styles?

In the script, its a normal choice format
This is what it looks like:

Well first of all, when I was suggesting adding a separate disabled style, I meant specifically the ones with (disabled) in them so they could be styled differently from normal choice buttons. So past the 'else' statement they'd go back to normal styles. It now seems like what you're disliking is not related to the choice button styles but the window styles, so that might've been unnecessary altogether.

What I can now see is the problem, is 1) the window has a background. You still haven't shown the definition for the nvl_menu style, but presumably you do have it written somewhere in your screens.rpy and can add the line 'background none' to it or change its current background [whatever] line to background none.

You've also added back the original vbox above the window, so every choice is shown twice. Either get rid of the vbox, or move your code for checking if it's disabled to the vbox and get rid of the window (which hey, would also solve the background issue).

In screen rpy there isn't a nvl menu and I don't understand the explanation enough to attempt it. Could you explain how to manipulate the background or get rid of the window/vbox?
When i try moving the disabled script around it leads to results like this:

You'll see in your code you have

Code: Select all

vbox:
    for i in items:
        textbutton i.caption action i.action
followed by your disabled code, but also

Code: Select all

window:
    style "menu_window"
    xalign 1.0
    yalign 0.5
    vbox:
        style "menu"
        spacing 2
        for caption, action, chosen in items:
followed by your disabled code... so basically every choice is getting shown twice, because you're doing 'for _ in items' twice and in each loop adding buttons.

Either delete the entire vbox chunk or the entire window chunk, and paste the resulting code into a post here so I can actually copy it if you need further help modifying it.

This error occurs at the 2nd part for displaying input:

                    else:

                else:
                    text caption style "menu_caption"
Which leads to this error in the display info section:

If you want it to be centered and look like the default choice GUI, keeping the vbox would've been better:

Code: Select all

screen choice(items):
    style_prefix "choice"

    vbox:
        for i in items:
            if " (disabled)" in i.caption:
                $ caption = i.caption.replace(" (disabled)", "")
                textbutton caption action None
            else:
                textbutton caption action i.action
The error looks like you tried to do something like

Code: Select all

menu:
    "[description] (disabled)"
but never defined "description". Make sure all the variables you're showing are defined beforehand.

then changing to:

Code: Select all

screen choice:
    style_prefix "choice"

    vbox:

            else:
                textbutton i.caption
works till I get to display info which results in:

I'm sorry, but an uncaught exception occurred.

Re: Wrongly shown variables and display hidden variables

Whoops, I meant to say

Code: Select all

screen choice(items):
    style_prefix "choice"

    vbox:
        for i in items:
            if " (disabled)" in i.caption:
                $ caption = i.caption.replace(" (disabled)", "")
                textbutton caption action None
            else:
                textbutton i.caption action i.action
Although what you changed it to is fine too.

What you define description as depends on what text you intended to show when you used [description].

I don't understand what you mean, can you give an example of with error and one without?
