Pausing Mid Sentence?

#1 Post by T4R4F13D » Wed Jan 30, 2019 5:13 pm

Say I wanted the MC to say "He's not the smartest... but I love him." How do I get the user to have to click again after the "..."?

Try putting {w} in the spot where you want the pause. Include the brackets.
The best reason to get up in the morning is to outdo yourself: to do it better than you've ever done it before. But if you haven't done it better by nightfall... look at your globe and pick a spot: it's always morning somewhere.

You can also use "extend" under the first half. It would look something like this

Code: Select all

MC "He's not the smartest..."
extend " but I love him."
This can come in handy if you want to change the sprite's expression or show a new sprite in-between the extension.
