Change Menu Position

#1 Post by CyRedCh » Wed May 23, 2018 10:51 am

I'm currently working on a game that requires a certain amount of GUI position changes. I was curious if there was a way to automatically change the position of any "menu:" snippets, preferably where the Dialogue box is when no characters are speaking. Any help is welcome :)

I'm not sure what you mean by where dialogue box is when no characters are speaking: as dialogue box doesn't appear when nobody is speaking?

If you're interested in making GUI changes, I'd recommend you start be reading this guide first:

If you want variable positions - you'll probably need to create your own variables and modify the screens to read off those variables, just make sure you put those variables in your screens and not your styles - as styles are initialised once at launch and doesn't change even if variables are in them.
