Assets for games made with Ren'Py are sometimes stored in
.rpa files. These can be extracted by using an RPA extractor.
When you install a Ren'Py game on Windows, you'll often find a binary for Linux in (game folder)/lib/linux-x86_64 that you can run on Linux without having to install the game again. The exact path may vary.
- Older versions of Ren'Py supported a software renderer, but this has been removed.
- Ren'Py suggests trying the GL and ANGLE renderers. The GLES renderers may not function on desktop hardware.
|gl||OpenGL||OpenGL 2.0 or greater.|
|angle||DirectX||DirectX 9 or DirectX 11|
|gles||OpenGL ES||OpenGL ES 3.0|
By default, Ren'Py will automatically choose which renderer to use. Sometimes there can be issues, such as a flickering black pattern or other anomalies.
