When I display text for dialogues and stuff like that, the game draws the text way too fast. This makes it so the player can skip any line of text by pressing z or enter twice, the first time showing the rest of the text, the second one skipping it.  Is there a way to control how fast text in drawn so that it draws the text at a slower pace, such as a normal talking pace?

If you let the cursor still on the "Show text" window, a list of codes will appear.

Among them, are the ones you need to control the speed of the text.

\.         - Waits 15 frames (quarter second).

\|         - Waits 60 frames (a full second).

\!         - Waits until key is pressed.

\>        - Following text is instant.

\<        - Following text is no longer instant.

\^         - Skips to the next message.

Of course, another option (which is new to Ace if you are a VX user, btw) is the nice little, "show scrolling text" option.


Use that instead of "Show Text" to emphasize special messages.


You can opt to allow the scrolling to be skippable or not.

Lets say that I put \. to make the text wait 15 frames, I would have to do that after every single letter in every single dialogue, or after every word. Might there be a script that would do the same thing?

Well, my friend, there's certainly scripts that are specialized on text functions.

Modern Algebra's scripts are some of the best scripts that you can find.

ATS: Special Message Codes

And better than recommend just one, I will give you a list, so you can find the most appropriated one for your texting needs if by any chance that one doesn't work for you.

Search under the category "Message/Text Display, Show Text Editor".

I've started working on rpg maker again, and I can see a lot of improvement from when I was 13. I still have a long way to go, but I'm proud that I've gotten this far.

I am using the Nightmare Land pack.
I just can't walk to the store for lunch without walking past people smoking. It not only smells bad, it's probably poisoning me. I'm afraid I'll eventually have to be hospitalized. I can't take another path because there's too much traffic and drivers in the plaza are reckless sometimes. I almost got run over once, even after looking both ways.
