Display Text (New Line)

  • #1, by darren-beckettMonday, 13. July 2015, 15:03 5 years ago
    Is there a way to specify a break in the dialog text without having to specify the pause time?
    It would be similar to using a <p2> tag which will split the lines into separate lines, but i'd like to not specify the pause time, i'd like for this to be automatically handled.
    Note: I do not mean 2 lines of text shown, i want 1 line at a time. The same as if I used 2 display text actions (But from within the dialog)

    No. If you want to have multiple lines (without line break) in a single display text then you just have to add a pause tag between each text to tell the engine when the text should end - otherwise how is it supposed to know you want it to display x portion of the text separately?

    hello my name is AFRLme... <p1000ms> How do you do? <p500ms> etc...

    It's not exactly going out of your way.

    The reason i ask, is that the Pause tags do not work perfectly on Android, thanks.

    Hmm... did you try using milliseconds instead? It's the recommended time format for the pause tags.

    <p1000ms> instead of <p1> or <p1s>.

    If not, then it's probably a bug related to android & you'll just have to wait for the devs to sort it out.

    haha the forum CMS stripped the tags I wrote. Oh well. I posted a link to the display text information page on the wiki in the other thread you wrote. It's pretty much up to date. The only thing I haven't wrote about on the page is object texts.
