Problem Running Ren'Py Demos

#1 Post by TheLateWhiteRabbit » Wed Sep 07, 2005 4:13 pm

Hopefully someone can answer this for me or tell me what I need to change. When I run the Demo Game everything works fine except for when it tries to demonstrate the ability of Ren'Py to use stats in simulations, then it crashes. The trace back file says this:

I'm sorry, but an exception occured while executing your Ren'Py
script.

Exception: yanchor <curry {'callable': <class 'renpy.display.layout.Position'>, 'args': (), 'kwargs': {}}> is not known.

The last script statement executed was on line 1379 of game/script.rpy.

Also, when I try to run the Dating Simulation, I get the main character's prologue and it says Day 1, then crashes. It's traceback file says this:

------------------------------------

I am running it under Windows XP SP2, 2 GB RAM, 3.7 Ghz Pentium 4, Geforce FX 5500 256 MB, if any of that matters.
I assume my computer is having problems with a certain Python script related to stats, but unfortunately I have no experience with Python to judge one way or the other.

Any help is appreciated and thanks for the wonderful program PyTom.

Both of these are known issues, a fix will be out shortly. Assuming the current emergency ends.

Oops, sorry. Didn't get the word on that. Still, I'm relieved to know it isn't my computer.

Okay, back from the hospital, where a friend's mother is after a bad car accident. It looks like the air bags and crumple zones helped... alot. So kudos to some anonymous engineers out there who designed the things that saved her life. Hence my new series of sigs, quotes from Rudyard Kipling's "The Sons of Martha".

The problem is a stupid mistake I made, in which I set vanchor= to center rather than 'center' in calls to ui.bar. I'll try to cut a bug-fix release to fix this and another (directx) related bug, since I'm not sure when I'll be able to throw more effort into development.

I'll try to cut that release soon.

Glad to hear everything turned out okay.
And kudos to you for putting so much effort into a program you distribute for free. You do more frequent updates and provide more support than many companies that charge for their products. You're a huge asset to the fan ren'ai community.
Anyway, off to update.
