    I was wondering if it's possible to do effects like these


    What I mean is like a mode that fade out/in the text when you click to continue, and a mode for having that glowing effect on the fonts. By mode I mean like the modes on ccoa's UMS (I use that script so I wanna it compatible with it).

    Just because nobody commented doesn't mean it's not possible. It just means

    - the people who have seen your request don't know how to do it
    - the people who have seen your request know how to do it but don't have the time to do it
    - the people who know how to do it and have the time to do it haven't seen your request or just don't want to do it


    XP is 4 versions old now. I only know of one person here who does XP scripting anymore.

    Thinking about it, message system fonts cause quite a bit of drag on the system.

    Rendering normal text is okay. Rendering text that has an outline effect requires that one bit of text needs rendering five times (1 for each of the 4 sides in black, and a fifth for the center text in white). This causes lag when rendering.

    Insofar as making a glow effect that fades in and out, this may require quite a bit of lag and updating of the message system. So while it may be more likely possible with a sprite effect as in a TITLE screen, it could be ... an issue with a message system.

    Oh, I know a few other XP scripters. ^_^

    I was thinking to make the fade out with a show picture, but the picture don't show at the exact time when the text disappear, so it create like 5 frames of nothing, no text, no picture. There's a way to remove this wait between a text show and other actions? And maybe without the fade out/in the glow effect can be done without lagging? Maybe for glow effect make to show a picture with an animation of glowing or something (maybe with a new mode called glow or something that you can enable by a script call)

    XP is old, but i don't understand why it's death, I love that program so much.
