How to make an RPG Dialog Text Box

Show us your completed creations made in Construct 2

Post » Sat Mar 28, 2015 9:10 pm

After searching the forums for a nice, clean example, I couldn't find one that is any good. Most of the ones I found use basic text functions, and the text doesn't "flow" letter by letter nicely.

...SO...

I decided to make a cool RPG dialog box with writing text!! Its very similar to the golden era Final Fantasy games on NES & SNES, etc.

Here is the example you can play in your browser:

And here is the .capx to download and learn from!!

I've submitted an entry in the store a few months ago with a "template" to create rich dialogues of this style.
Check it out !

It ain't free though... ;)

Wow that one is pretty awesome, and they figured out one problem I couldn't figure out which is if you press space over and over the text will restart (I think I just need a variable though)

@cloudstrife777 Hi, I don't have the file any more, sorry. But its pretty much just a typewriter effect over a blue box, so this should help you:

I think I had it on space pressed to go to the next text ONLY if the current text was complete.

@GTGJon Hi, could you add the blue layout and white font? It should you take like 3 seconds and i will spend days trying to figure out how this works. Like I said I only want this for a video, I have no idea how to program or use this thing.
