cython2 was complaining about not having the pkg_resources module so renpy wouldn't build. Installing python2-pip fixed it and let me install the game though.

Thanks for the report :) And I think I've found some workaround for that:

That's reproducible, actually the last one (Wiosna right?) could display upper half of the name (and can still be clicked, though it looks really weird),

but strangely, after I run bundled one (to test the difference) and make a save then run this one again, it displays normally again, and I also tried move ~/.renpy/katawa-shoujo* to somewhere else, and same result too, hope this helps :)

(and also, I'm sorry to say that I don't want to change renpy6 package to match any specific version other than the newest, since it's aimed to provide general compatibility for all games developed based on renpy 6.x, not just for ks ><"

but I'll try to help with finding workaround if there's any issue (whether general (for all game) or special (for one game)), so feel free to report if there's any problem :)

Hi there, I've found there is still a slight bug with renpy6 package.

Whilst the game is playable, you're unable to scroll all the way to the bottom of the page in the jukebox and the library under the extra menu. So the last two music tracks and the last two chapters are inaccessible.

I'd recommend trying changing renpy6 to be the same version as the bundled one which I believe is 6.16.5

Since 1.3.1-2 only changes dependency and data files are still the same,

I write a PKGBUILD to make it easier to repackage (avoid extra download),

take this if you need:

ok, I submit renpy6 package, and change deps of this one to renpy6, now anyone who wants to play this doesn't need to worry about compatibility issues for a while ;)

Hmm, reproducible, Seems renpy 7.0 breaks it, thanks for the report :)

I'm thinking about reporting issue in katawa shoujo forums(if I don't get it wrong, seems it needs only few changes to fix incompatibility), or making a renpy 6 package instead,

maybe the latter one is better, since there's not only one package got broken by new renpy, but this will take some time to try >_<

and if you want to play katawa shoujo for now, you can try katawa-shoujo-bin, which comes with the bundled renpy library, I have never used it but think it should work :)

(edit: I tagged this as out-of-date to remind people that it doesn't work, will fix it later :p)

Hello! :) After last renpy update the game won't work, not even using the instructions given on 2017-10-21 12:35 from yinfkying and 2017-07-16 12:39 from maksververn, nor using the katawa-shoujo-bin available on AUR. This is the traceback info I get:

I'm sorry, but an uncaught exception occurred.

While running game code: File "game/ui_labels.rpy", line 384, in <module> File "game/ui_code.rpy", line 31, in mm_context AttributeError: 'RevertableObject' object has no attribute 'main_menu'</module>

THANKS in advance! :D I hope this issue can be solved :)

Here's a simple fix for the _set_script_version problem:

@emersion: reproducible, maybe new version of renpy breaks some apis :/ i'll make katawa-shoujo-bin for now as temporary workaround in a day or two, and report it to the ks developers too, ehh...
