Can I use transitions without the chatbox disappearing?

#1 Post by Diapolo10 » Thu Aug 06, 2015 4:15 am

Hello,

I'm trying to use transitions (mostly dissolve) to switch between my character sprites, but I don't want the chatbox to disappear every single time that happens (and, if possible, also make the text continue immediately without it having to wait until the transition finishes). Is there a workaround for this problem?

Example:

Code: Select all

x "I'd like to go swimming today."

show y happy       #At this point, the chatbox disappears.
with dissolve        #During the transition, no text will appear.
                         #
y "That would be great!"
This may have been asked already, but I couldn't find any posts regarding it. If so, my apologies. :oops:

Hello!

There have been quite a lot of topics on this question actually. Here's one that might help you:

And another one which is more extensive and dealing with other, more specific cases:

I hope this helps?

Thank you very much, but I'm having a hard time understanding the answers in those posts.

Could you, or someone else, explain it to me in simple words? A practical example would also be helpful. :)

There are practical examples in those posts... maybe window show statement may get some form of behavior that you require.
