Hello,

How do I make an automatic line by line scrolling text ?
Example there : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zMLizwiUBB4

I did the tutorial for dialog text in the Construct 2 videos posted by Kyatric and read articles of the forum about dialog texts. But I didn't find explanations about how to make this specific text behaviour where the text scrolls by itself line by line like in most of the classic old school RPGs which I find really nice and would like to reproduce.

I was thinking about moving the text on Y coordinate and once it moved for 1 line height resize it but then that would mean that the text would become bigger and bigger ? I could always hide the rest with a mask.
What would be the best way to do that ?

PS : Also, is there a way to know how many lines there is in your text or spritefont object ? Or you have to calculate it with a sprite font object with the number of characters ?

Thanks
