Hey, can someone help me with the Ren'Py engine? It's just that everytime I type new code into the script.rpy, I get an error saying "Tab characters are not allowed in Ren'py scripts." Can someone help me?

Could you show me the code? If it's code that's trying to define an item like "image nblnk = im.Scale("nblnk.png", 320, 575)", that HUGE space you see right there after "image nblnk" is a tab space (EDIT: Okay, so indiedb takes out the space, but the space is as big as when you hit tab in the script editor). Usually it changes tabs into spaces but when defining something if you use Tab it marks it as an error. If it's not that that's the issue, show me a bit of the code and I can work on it for ya.

Make sure every line of code defining something only has one space between each variable, like so:
"variable nickname = "realname.filetype", where variable is the type of file or action, such as image, play music, play sound, or with (EDIT: with is used in other places, NOT with an "=" sign. My bad. the "play music" or "play sound" however are almost like that, just without the "=" sign). If you don't know what those are, the engine itself when downloaded has a tutorial game that explains pretty much everything (except the more complex errors.) This is just an add-on to what I said above, if it still doesn't fix it, I'll gladly check your code.

If this place is inappropriate to say this, please forgive me and delete the comment. If not, I would be very happy if it actually helps: I am planning on releasing a couple of longer stories as visual novels.. games, with this engine. I am a writer mainly, and not the best artist. I would love if, if someone is an artist or has interest and experience in the creation of artwork, would be interested in working with me, they could contact me via PM.

Again, I apologize if this is not the correct place to post this, but on the forums things like that are lost within hours with no results so I figured I would try my luck here.

Thanks in advance. I love this engine :)

its a bit saddening to see many ren'py games releasing with a price up to $20, even when the arts, story, and or "gameplay" is not that good.

-not to be compared, look at Katawa Shoujo being one of the greatest, yet totally free
