How do I automatically scale Text?

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Wed May 03, 2017 4:17 pm

I am developing a game in which the user is able to enter words which will then appear on placards during gameplay.

I don't want to limit them on how many characters they can use and so would rather the text scale to fit the placard no matter how many characters (within reason).

I know there is Rex_Text_resize plugin but this doesn't seem to be loading in for me (getting error reading " 'GetPluginSettings' global, but it is not a function).

All advice appreciated.
Thanks

The error is usually caused if you try to install a 'Behaviour' in the 'Plugins' folder.

Might be worth checking whether Rexx's addon is a 'Behaviour' or a 'Plugin'.
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

Ah, Cheers.
Realised i could do what i needed by just detecting the characters and making the font size smaller if it hits certain thresholds.

Thanks.
