My main project requires several number displays on the screen, as well as an LCD display for messages.
I've created a custom LCD display with scrolling alpha-numerical characters, and I'm very pleased with it.
I've now moved on to the several number displays that I need, and although I've got a few ways I could do this, I'm wondering if the SpriteFont plugin would save me some time.
So first off, is it stable?
I can't remember if it was ever finished (I don't think it's in the "finished plugin" section of the forums).
Also, will it take values like a score and display it with the correct amount of sprites?
Will it also trim numerical characters that aren't needed, like preceding zeros.
In other words, if I want a 4 character display for the score, will it take a numerical value like 380 and display it with the custom font, right justified, and with the option of keeping the preceding zero?
I'm going to have a play around with the plugin now in a blank cap, so by the time you read this, I may already have my answers, but please don't let that stop you sharing anything you know.
I may not have all my answers, and it will be useful reading for anyone who searches the forum in the future.
