Dialogue Box For Lazy People

Version 1.0.0.0

by bbenny93
First published on 21st June, 2016

I wanted to have a dialogue box for future games, so I did this and decided to share it. You can tell me if you'd like some improvements or if you'd like more explanation about how to use it. wrote it so you don't have to add many events for your dialogues, you just have to modify the XML file. I made a tutorial so you can see how to do it.

NEW UPDATE!
-Touch support

UPDATE:
- Better choices implementation

    Good demo!

    Maybe I can use this for an RPG or an adventure game I'll make after I've finished Round Rotate...

    Oh I almost forgot to tell, is it possible to change the typing sound for some characters?

    For example, if a boy speaks, a usual typing sound will play. But if a girl speaks, a high-toned typing sound should be played instead.

    Can you make that?

    As it is no, but it can easely be changed to do this. I could send you a Capx that will do it when you need it. Since I change it a lot now because I keep adding things, I think it's better to wait a little before using it. :)

    All the dialogues must be written in the XML file not in the events. Then to start a dialogue you've written use the function "dialogue" with the name of the dialogue you want to start as a parameter.

    Tell me if it's still not clear enough :)
