Ren'Py 6.0.0 "The World Creates"
Ren'Py 6.0.0 "The World Creates" was released on February 17, 2007. The main distributions are:
Each of these files contains the full Ren'Py development environment, which is enough to allow you to develop Ren'Py games on Windows 98 and up, Mac OS X 10.3 and up, and Linux x86. The development environment contains the files needed to produce games for all three platforms. It also includes a text editor and sample games.
For your convenience, we've posted the Release Announcement and Changelog. We've also made available the following programs, which can be used to run Windows-only Ren'Py games on non-Windows platforms:
- Ren'Py Launcher for Macintosh 5.6.7 (Mac OS X)
- py4renpy 5.6.7 (Linux)
- renpy-deps 5.6.6 (other platforms)
Ren'Py 6.0.0, and all previous versions, have problems that prevent them from working on Windows Vista. Please see our Windows Vista page for information about a workaround. Ren'Py 6.1.0, which will fix this, is due out shortly.
Character.copy does not properly take the name parameter. As a workaround, use:
$ char2 = char1.copy() $ char2.name = "New Name"
I'm please to announce the release of Ren'Py 6.0.0 "The World Creates". This major release marks the culmination of over five months of development, which saw improvements to the ease of use of Ren'Py, the introduction of a tool suite, engine improvements, and the occasional bug fix.
Downloads and a full release announcement can be found at:
To migrate your game from Ren'Py 5.6.2 or later, copy the directory containing your game into the directory containing Ren'Py. Please see the 5.6.2 release notes for information about migrating from older releases.
Note that the changelog only includes the relatively minor changes between 5.6.7 and 6.0.0. Please read the release history on the download page for details of all the changes that took place in the now-concluded 5.6 series.
CHANGELOG for Ren'Py 6.0.0
Changed main menu image to the 6.0 image.
Modified the "doesn't expect a block" error message, to better convey that the problem is with the next line.
Everyone who contributed to the 5.6 series once again has my thanks!
