Drawing action text inside rectangle

  • #1, by ygmantellMonday, 31. August 2015, 15:12 5 years ago
    When I am doing this, how do I know the coordinates of the rectangle. Is there a reason it isn't just a "select an object area" type of thing?

    you mean the properties inside the game settings, right? you have to set the coordinates related to your game resolution

    you can use a scene which is as big as the game resolution and point with the mouse on a point The coordinates of that point are displayed in the upper right if the window

    The position of the rectangle / square is based on the top left pixel of said rect & then the width & height. Like so: x, y, width, height. You have to take into account that the position is based on the top left pixel so to center the box to a specific coordinate you would need to remove half the width value from the x position & same again with the height.

    Quick note: the position is based on the viewport (camera) & not the scene width / height.
