Here is a .capx for you to look at

https://www.dropbox.com/s/4ziudooq3lxv6 ... .capx?dl=0

So, what I'm going for is something similar to Cave Story or Pokemon. I'm thinking more towards Cave Story. You hold down the button to speed up the text until the text is fully displayed, then you press the button again to advance.

I've tried several things, but this one seems the most logical. However, it does not work:

Every time text is generated, set a value to the number of characters in that string. Have some pseudo code:

*Length is less than Max Characters
*Spacebar is held
-Set Text Speed to 0.05

*Length is less than Max Characters
*Spacebar is NOT held
-Set Text Speed to 0.02

*Length is equal to Max Characters
*Spacebar is pressed
-Add 1 to sequence

Basically, I'm trying to find some sort of limiter, so that when every character has been displayed, something else can happen.

Do you understand what I'm trying to say? If not, I'll try to explain what I mean in greater detail.

Any ideas? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
