How to make text appear one letter at a time?
« on: March 25, 2018, 02:35:19 PM »
As the title said, I'm looking to have the gui text on screen appear one letter at a time when it pops up, in a way similar to a visual novel, where the text would start appearing from the right and move to the left as letters appeared on screen. I've got my dialogue system running off of a series of xml files that store the name of the current actor and the text its self. Is there a way to do this with playmaker or would I have to do it manually?

you've got a typewriter action on the ecosystem. if you wanna do it the hard way, you can parse the string character by character with a short wait before displaying the character.
