[solved] Slow text doesn't work with show text

#1 Post by qualiatte » Fri Dec 19, 2014 2:39 pm

hey. so i'm using "show text" to center text on a background, but i want it to be typed out in slow text mode.
text in the actual text box is typed out, but not this. it doesn't seem to be affected by the default text cps. there's a page on the ren'py documentation that talks about using text as a displayable in order to make it appear in slow text mode, but i find it hard to understand because it doesn't really explain how. at least not in any language i understand. is there a simpler way to solve this?

sorry for always coming here with simple problems i'm just really REALLY bad a coding and i don't understand :ll

I've never really used show text before, but you could achieve the same thing using normal say statements and the centered character.

Also, the documentation notes that you could use text tags. http://www.renpy.org/doc/html/text.html#text-tag-cps
