I've always wanted to have text in a game where you can read what the character says and what not, but I really just have no clue where to start..
possible something like show here,

It would be great if anybody could make an example for me so I could check it out and learn how to get it set up!

Here you go. You'll need to have Lucids Spritefont plugin for the example to work.

SPRITEFONT PLUGIN THREAD

Very simple example of a textbox. I have had to use the +NEWLINE+ command to wordwrap because the spritefont plugin would wordwrap a few lines then make it disappear. Probably my fault be I was in a hurry. :)

Don't use spritefont. It's buggy. Use one of these other examples instead:
