How do I: Type snippets of Text on Screen

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Sun Aug 07, 2016 6:13 am

Hey guys, I really like the idea of this site http://hackertyper.net/. I want to incorporate this into my game on C2. Any ideas how to set text (stored somewhere) and bring it on to the screen. Like when Q pressed a snippet like (C:_) will show up on screen. I know the text box object is there, just not sure what steps to take to create this effect. Thank you guys in advance!

You'll need the "typing text plugin" from Rex's plugins. Here's the link -http://c2rexplugins.weebly.com/rex_text_typing.html

Thanks for the link. From what I described above which plug-in do you recommend to perform this kind of effect or will all of them work? Thank you

Depends on if you're using the sprite font but, you'll also need the timeline plugin. Also check out his sample capx. I'm using them in one of my games. Works great.

Great thanks, I figured it out yesterday using text box, text, set focus and a global variable. Took 3 hrs of testing but finally achieved the look like in the link above. Thanks again for the replies! Norman
