Display a text message

Postby vertexx » Wed Aug 25, 2010 12:45 pm

In the Hotspt properties options there is a message box available in the Action tab.

Clicking in the "Display a text message" allows you to type in some words that can be displayed on the bottom of the screen when the hotspot is clicked.

How does one change the font and or the size of font displayed?
Can one change the font colour or the transparency of the background colour that the text is displayed on?

Thanks...

Hello, vertexx,

there is no transparency for bottom text messages. Every text there is always on black background.

Of course you can change font, size and color of those messages. In "Project Properties" choose "Plugins" and check "Change Message Font". You can edit it by pressing "Configure the selected plugin".

This plugin doesn't work with dialogues. In that case in frame where the dialogue is, you must open "Frame Properties", go to "Advanced", check "Execute VBScript..." and place there those lines:

For Each X in DialogueObject
X.FontName = "name of chosen font"
X.FontSize = 16
X.FontUnderline = False
X.FontBold = False
Next
Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter...
