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:

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 so much!!

Here’s an example:


Thank you! This helps a bunch!

BTW this uses three extensions:

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

Yeah, I’ve seen. A lot of the content can be garbage made by kids, however I’ve seen some projects that genuinely impressed me. Series with amazing writing, an elaborate storyline, fluid animations and whole teams of VAs.
