Request: Star Wars Scrolling Text

Share your Construct 2 effect files

@Gigatron

For my game i need a scrolling text like the star wars intro.
I have searched for a plugin/behavior but none of them can do this.
Is this possible with a shader?

Example

In my case the text needs to go down, but it would be great if we could set it to up or down.

You can use a shader called tabletop for the depth view, then just scroll the text with a set Y event.

@Lof
I have tried this before i wrote this post but it does not give the right result.
This is because that shader is either applied to the text object, which makes it non scrollable.
Or it is applied to a layer, but that way i cant put the text where i want to have it on screen.
The scrolling text needs to be placed in a river in my game, which is the botom half of the screen, so the effect needs to be in that position.

I did not found any sw scroll text, but i remember why i dropped this style of fx: the reason
is can be done with 2.5 platformer fx with little change.. I must do some modification for
you can use it. Here a little example for you, i think it's just work for text object.
