I know this normally happens by default. However in this specific situation I have to use scripts to display a message that will provide info for the choices. So $gameMessage.setFaceImage('Actor1',0); $gameMessage.setBackground(1); $gameMessage.setPositionType(2); $gameMessage.add("My message containing data"); All this works great except if "Show Choices" event command follows this script, text disappears before choices appear. I'm looking trough $gameMessage class and scripts but I can't seem to find how the game devs made the text stay. I'll keep looking and testing but perhaps someone already knows the answer.
