Persistent Text error

 The error is as pictured, persistent through all menus, and even into the game itself



Does this affect all text in the game, or just that font? I'm not sure I've ever seen this kind of bug, so I'm not sure what could be going on.

If it's a font issue, maybe try going into the game/fonts folder and installing the fonts. If that doesn't work, I might need more information to know what's going on.

running through it, it is all text, save for the "Flowering Nightshade" on the Title Screen

which, I assume isn't *text* specifically

Some information I can give, though I can't say with any certainty it would be related

My device runs Windows 8

And I do have two older versions of the game installed


Does the text display properly on the older versions of the game? If so, which versions are those? Also, which Ren'Py versions are listed in the game/script_version.txt files? If it's not a font issue, the best I can think of is that Windows 8 doesn't like changes Ren'Py has made to graphics handling between versions.

Text displays normally on both older versions, which are an unlisted version (I think first?) and V4. Looking at the script_version.txt, they list 7,3,5 in both of these versions, with 7,4,5 in the V7 files, so it seems like it is probably Windows 8 not being happy. 

that's a shame

ok, a little additional digging, somebody on Reddit is suggesting it may be a bug between Ren'py and the processor my laptop uses specifically, which is AMD

so that is a possible answer to this issue

an update:

I was able to force fix it by manually choosing how Ren'py renders the game


Glad it's working now. Hopefully a later version of Ren'Py will fix the AMD issues, but unfortunately that's not something I know how to fix myself.
