This is what I have been working on today (exept for the alpha backgrounds). It's fully working with word wrap. It reads all dialogs from a file and store them in an array. Then when I stand in a square with a dialog and click the dialog will start. This one has a reply from Pea-Guy that appears at the bottom of the screen when you click again. Clicking a 3rd time will turn off the dialog system and you can walk and look around again.

Word wrap is when a string is devided into multiple lines while keeping the words intact instead of spliting them as it would if it changed line after a sertain width. It's like this box where you type in the message in this forum.

Yepp, I use LW. All models and renders you see here is made in LW, and so is the sky. The landscape is made in my own matrix editor.

Lol, by 'mysteries' I was refering to a code snipplet, but no bother. Anywayz, I thought those skies were reminescent of SkyTracer2, turn on the Volumetric rendering and pump the cloud height up to about 300-500m's for a 'more fuller' cloud solution. It's not as pretty as Hypervoxels, but it gives the clouds a decrenable amount of volume.

Rock on

I belive in learning by figuring it out yourself. But I can give you some clues. Look at all those nice text commands that returns differnt things from strings. Learn them all and you can write all kinds of cool string handling stuff like word wrap. You won't learn them if I post the code for you.

I wanted this kind of sky, it looks kinda cartoonish and that's the whole idea. And yes, it's SkyTracer2 =)

So your "Word Wrap" makes it so your strings dont run across the page- and makes it so you dont have to do so much guess work?

If im right- I can see where that would be usefull Especially for the part of ET that im working on right now.

Looks great as always DG! If we had kudos- youd get some! lol !

I just write down what the character should say and the word wrap makes sure that the text stays inside the box and that the words stays whole.

To be exact it only makes sure that the first line stays inside the box, it's that simple at the moment =) It's all I need now. No need to over work things.

Will you be able to make it generic code (so everyone and their computer can use it) ?

Good news everyone! I really am THAT good...

I don't want to give you a complete code that you can use. I belive the best way to learn is to figure out things yourself, that's why I got as good as I'm now. It's really simple it took me about an hour to figure it out.

Yes, I know its quite simple, but it does save time if a generic piece of code can be written to do this, so it can be used by many to reduce development time.

I don't have time to make one as I'm working on TML as hard as I can.
