Savegames - Name, Time and Date

  • #1, by SDMonoThursday, 20. June 2013, 00:36 7 years ago
    Hi everybody... hope you are having a great week.

    Ok my savegames are working, everything is great. Name, time and date of the savegames are showing up... perfect. Now there is just one little thing I don't know how to do or if its even possible. The name, time and date of each savegame gets written right underneath the corresponding screenshot. Is there any way to move the text to another position? Just a little bit down would be enough so it doesn't look like its plastered against the screenshot.

    Thanks!!!

    Saludos,
    Gordon

    hmm not that I know of.

    you could try messing about with a new font image file. playing with the line spacing in the fonts properties or you could draw a very faint almost transparent line up from each letter (has to be attached to the letter) to manually create space above, below, left or right or however you want. I've not attempted this mind & could be totally off the mark.

    aye, you do that wink

    save game names?
    as far as I know it just prints date & time no?
    but I see something in the data structure for pulling save game name...
    hmm I wonder if David does add true key input if it could also be used to allow players to manually type in a custom save game name if they like. (will ask David when I next speak to him)

    Well it gives you the scene name, date and time. It would be great if you could type in a custom save game name.

    ah I only ever saw date & time - guess because I didn't actually name the scenes.

    Ok I messed a little with the font. Made one of the special characters larger than the rest. It seems like it takes the height of the tallest character and uses it for all others. Looks much better now. smile
