    How do I animate the faces when typing?
    You know like the mugshots in the game boy advance game called MegaMan battle network. Also is it possible to have a key that would increase the text typing speed until released and also speed up the face animation speed and have a key to make all the text type out at once? Also how do I make it play a sound effect for each letter typing out and customise the message box and the arrow at the end of the text?

    I am terribly sorry if this is the wrong section for this thread, I thought it was the correct section

    I recommend using a plugin to do something like that. You can still do it with script calls and event commands but I do not recommend it, as it becomes much more complicated. You should start a thread in the plugin request board or ask a moderator to move this one in that board, unless you really plan on doing it with events and script calls.

    Please can a moderator move this to the plugin request board?

    @goldenhawk If you want one of your threads moved, please report it instead of just making a post. We mods may miss a post, but we'll definitely see a report. But since I'm here...

    Sorry I only just returned to the product since I was 10 and I was new back then and I recently returned to it, and so I might have forgotten a few things about being apart of these forums normally I don’t disobey the rules it’s just 2 small reminders I needed but I will do my best to make sure I don’t break anymore rules.

    It’s perfect but what about the mouth moving before blinking? You know during the typewriter text effect and then only blinking afterwards when it’s all typed out...

    I am afraid that the mentioned plug-in only allows you to use a single animation image (the one you use to blink). If you want to do something like that, I would say you need around 4 different frames (one with a normal face, one with an open mouth, one with closed eyes and closed mouth and one with closed eyes and open mouth). You could ask the author of the script if he can add some sort of customization to it that allows you to use more than two files (it should not be too difficult).

    However, since this is not something you can do with events, I recommend you asking for help in the JavaScript Plugin Request board.

    Perhaps I could import a animated mugshot for mouth moving for when setting the mugshot for the message box and change it to the blinking animation when the text message has finished typing. :) Will this work or not?

    You can try my animated busts plugin if you want to do it via pictures and not the built in faceset command.
    It allows you to set up different animations and synch them to the message window so mouth movements only occur while the message is typing.

    Thanks that sounds very helpful, how much does it cost for the plugin?
