[QUOTE=R0J0hound] You could use a sprite with a frame per letter.
Then with events you could do a loop to read each letter eg mid(Text.Text, loopindex, 1).
Finally once you get a letter you can convert it to a frame number. ex find("abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz", letter).
Here is a example I did a while back:http://www.scirra.com/forum/suggestionsprite-font_topic44315_post277605.html#277605
Hello @R0J0hound, i already used your good example, but it uses loop which may cause performance issues for mobile, i'm looking another workaround which doesn't use loop. Do we have another workaround?
