Character position and rollback [SOLVED]

#1 Post by noi3asyh » Wed Apr 08, 2020 4:04 am

Hello!
I want to show my characters in different positions on the screen except for centre, left and right. For example in the centre but a little to the right, not in the far right. How can I do that?

Another thing I want help with is rollback. I want to change the default of rollback, so when I roll the mouse wheel it shows the history, instead of going back to the previous dialogue. Is that possible? Or is there another way to do that?

You can hit it with a transform.

For that, I put

Code: Select all

key 'rollback' action ShowMenu('history')
in the say screen.

Thanks for the reply. The rollback is okay now. But I'm having a little problem with the character position.
If I put only "xalign" without "yalign" it shows the character at the top of the screen. If I put the "yalign" with a value of 1 it still shows it at the top. But If the value is close to 1, but not 1, it works okay showing the character at the bottom. So, for example with "yalign 1.000000000001" it works okay and it shows the character at the bottom of the screen. Am I doing something wrong or am I forgetting something?

Only thing I can think of is if you're writing it as "yalign 1" instead of "yalign 1.0"

Code: Select all

show person:
	xalign 0.7 yalign 1.0
