Re: Hiding the Dialogue Textbox

This appears to be the complete solution to my problem. This has the suggested "window hide" along with the pause to keep it from reaching the next say statement. window hide show Bus Bus_Waiting show screen timedMovie(4, "Bus Bus_Waiting", "Bus S01_Movie_Bus_Leaving_Night") hide Bus Bus_Waiting pau...

Marking Thread Solved

I'm sure this is mentioned somewhere but I'm not finding it. How do you mark a thread as being Solved? Do you just change the Topic title manually to say "[Solved]"? Also, is there a way to mark a particular answer as being the Correct or Most Useful answer? Not sure if there is a Forum reputation m...

Re: Hiding the Dialogue Textbox

Thanks isobellesophia! I initially dismissed your answer thinking it was a generic thing since "window" didn't sound like it was meant specifically for the "say" box. I gave it a try this morning and it does exactly what I asked for. Unfortunately, it didn't solve my problem completely as I had expe...

[Solved] Hiding the Dialogue Textbox

In my game I have to do a convoluted trick to display animation movies over top of the Scene. The reason for this is that I have to deal with the delay in loading the movie with timers. Here is an example of how my Scene uses my movie Screen mechanism: show Bus Bus_Waiting show screen timedMovie(4, ...

Hiding Screen While Movie Loads

I have another thread out here about my issue with Movie load times, but I am trying to do a workaround and I'm am out of my depth. What I want to do is to move either the Screen (preferable) or the Movie, off out of view for a 1/2 second and then bring it back into view so the movie will be shown. ...

Re: Not a Displayable Error When Using Custom Function

Awesome! That works perfectly! Thank you!! I was hitting errors with some of the other approaches that I tried where it was complaining about Unicode Strings down deep in the APIs. May be a similar solution in those cases. One of things I was trying to do was to create my own Statements to handle th...

Not a Displayable Error When Using Custom Function

I'm trying to take some repetitive stuff and break it out into reusable pieces. I have tried a few different approaches but the current one is to write functions that will take care of multiple steps. Unfortunately I am get an error on what I expected would be a straight forward first step. File-MyS...

"End of Line Expected" When Additional Parameters After String

I am trying to create a Custom-Defined Statement that will contain more than one String. It appears that the parser is not able to handle any parameters after the first String in the Statement. Here is an example: showTimedImage 2 me x y z "a string" q r s "another string" In this example I get an "...

Re: Screen Cleanup During Animation

Sorry that it wasn't clear. My Animation is a webm video. This is how I load it: image Bus S01_Movie_Bus_Leaving_Night = Movie(channel="animation1", play="Ch 01/Assets/Animations/Greyhound Bus Leaving - Night.webm", mask="Ch 01/Assets/Animations/Greyhound Bus Leaving - Night-mask.webm") The first pa...

Re: Screen Cleanup

The problem with that Solution is that it won't take into account the changing perspective. When the Animation starts, the viewer can see the front Headlights of the Bus. The headlights will be less visible as the bus moves to the right and eventually the tail lights would start to become visible. T...

Screen Cleanup During Animation

Running into some problems trying to play a movie due to the delay in loading and starting the movie. I've tried quite a few things to mitigate the problem but I still don't have a solution. An example scenario is that I have a bus sitting on the left side of the screen and a say message displayed. ...

Animation with Mask as Transition

I create my Animations with just the Characters movements. I use a Mask so that most of the screen is static. This allows me to Render my scenes very quickly and keeps the size of my Games data smaller. Some of these Animations only make sense if they are done ONCE. I know I can achieve that with a ...
