Create outline text

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Mon Feb 27, 2012 12:57 am

Hi,

How do I go about creating text with the font in outline, as you might with this CSS:

?
I know there was an FX for this in Construct Classic....I want to be able to do this at the text element level.
Thanks,

And to clarify - I can't embed sprites with outline text - I'm looking to display dynamic text using a web font, but in outline...preferably using a test-shadow like approach. Thks

Nobody?

Ok, I've had to add to the current Text plugin to add actions to add shadow and stroke attributes to the text element.

I haven't added properties or expressions to it, but it does the job for me.
