Character Speech


I know this isn’t the best representation but is there a way to have a dialogue box with the speaking character’s profile?

I also found this one:

Looks like a Gacha narrator box. (Don’t ask me how I know)

What you can do, is insert newlines (\n) into the show long text input. That is the equivalent of pressing enter, so instead of this:

UnsignedArduino: I love your idea of named dialog boxes! turning into this:

UnsignedArduino: I love your id-
ea of named dialog boxes!

You can input: UnsignedArduino:\nI love your idea of named dialog boxes! and that would result in something like this:

UnsignedArduino:
I love your idea of named dial-
og boxes!

How would I go about having the speaking character behind the dialogue box? Do you know?

Hmmm…I would probably just put the sprite that is speaking right above the dialog box. I don’t think there will be a need to animate it (unless blinking, etc.) because you can’t playback a recording of the character speaking or something like that.

Thank you! This helps a bunch!

BTW this uses three extensions:

  • animation
  • arcade-text by @darzu
  • riknoll/arcade-story by me
