Make Text Flash By Very Quickly?

#1 Post by ArizaLuca » Sat Sep 15, 2018 9:48 am

I want to make a game where certain lines are shown for a split second before it disappears, and the only way to see what is written is in the history or in a separate thing. I looked in the tutorial in Launcher Ren'Py but I didn't see how to do that. Does anyone know? Thank you!

You could try the {nw} (no-wait) ending text tag, with a very fast cps (character per second) speed, or just 0 to display instantly:

Code: Select all

e "{cps=0}So fast you can't see me!{nw}"

This is very helpful, but it displays it so quickly that it's hard to tell that someone is saying something-- does anyone know how to have it display for long enough to read a bit of it before disappearing? Thank you!

Before {nw} you can add wait tag with time {w=1.0} which stands for 1 second. This will wait for 1 second and proceed further. You can also remove cps tag so line will appear normally as any other and players will know there was something.
