You've reached a page on the Ren'Py wiki. Due to massive spam, the wiki hasn't been updated in over 5 years, and much of the information here is very out of date. We've kept it because some of it is of historic interest, but all the information relevant to modern versions of Ren'Py has been moved elsewhere.

RPG frame

This is a frame you can use for your RPG project if you intend to create a hybrid project (renpy+minigames).

It might be a good introduction to style editing and game loops notions.

In the init section

init python:
    def stats_frame(name, level, hp, maxhp, **properties):
        ui.frame(xfill=False, yminimum=None, **properties)
        ui.hbox() # (name, "HP", bar) from (level, hp, maxhp)
        ui.vbox() # name from ("HP", bar)
        ui.text(name, size=20)
        ui.hbox() # "HP" from bar
        ui.text("HP", size=20), hp,
                left_bar=Frame("rrslider_full.png", 12, 0),
                right_bar=Frame("rrslider_empty.png", 12, 0),
        ui.vbox() # Level from (hp/maxhp)

        ui.text("Lv. %d" % level, xalign=0.5, size=20)
        ui.text("%d/%d" % (hp, maxhp), xalign=0.5, size=20)

In the game script

label start:
    with None
    jump fight
label fight:
        charmax_HP = 1000
        char_HP = 1000
        tigermax_HP = 2000
        tiger_HP = 2000
        while True:
            while tiger_HP >= 1000:
                tiger_HP = tiger_HP - 10
                stats_frame("Tiger", 4, tiger_HP, tigermax_HP, xalign=0.75, yalign=0.0)
                stats_frame("Hero", 1, 86, 86, xalign=0.0, yalign=0.0)
    "Tiger" "Gao gao! You're strong!"
