UI Text fed via document
« on: January 07, 2018, 03:24:24 PM »
hi,
I am developing a game where the text in the UI field is fed instead of being a pre written (hundreds possible entries, that is why). I was thinking in using a excel file or a text document to feed the field, but can't find any place to learn how to do it. I currently only use Playmaker and Nodecanvas as I have no programming skills.

What about taking text from the file and assigning it to variables to feed to the UI?

Hi.
Maybe xml can be useful?
you can use 'Data Maker' to connect.
There are some tutorials for datamaker on the User Tutorial Wiki page
and you can get Data Maker on the Ecosystem.
