Can I make a dialogue box scrolldown?

#1 Post by Nanahs » Sat Oct 20, 2018 9:19 am

There's a part in my game where I'll let the player write a text. The problem is that when the message gets too long, it "disappears" from the screen. You can still type, but you won't see what your typing.

Can I make the dialogue box scrolldown? Having a bar or something like this? It would scrolldown as the person keeps writing.

Thanks :)
