actionparts bug? display text on attached animation frame sometimes kills the animation

  • #1, by F_KalWednesday, 12. April 2017, 02:18 3 years ago
    If I attach a displaytext actionpart (with display as background text checked) on a frame of some character animation that is set to loop N-times, it terminates the animation prematurely (after the first iteration).

    Is this something that is known and can be worked around or is it something that only I have stumbled on?

    Display text will automatically trigger the talking animation of the character you specify. Background text option just means it can't be skipped & won't automatically force a cutscene event until the player left clicks or the specified time in the p tag (if you created one) is reached.

    If you don't want to trigger a characters talk animation then use "display narration text" or "display object text" under the miscellaneous action parts section instead. Display object text needs to be linked to a scene object & also needs to be manually killed with another action part. Narration text works the same way as display text except you can specify the font & position on the current scene that the text should be placed.

    argh! Silly me! That truly makes sense!
    I'll rework it tomorrow using narration text instead of (character) text~~
