I want to make dialogue show up with one speed, read another part of the same text window slowly, and then close without player input. Like something you'd see in a text based horror game.

please check the help file for the text codes available in the show text command.
there are codes for controlling the text speed as well as automatically closing the message after display end.

You can put some pauses between the letters.
\| = 1 second
\. = 1/4 second
\^ = Next dialog (Skip Confirm Key)
Code:
◆Text:None, Window, Bottom
:Text:Hello guy! \.W\.a\.i\.t\.?\.!\|\^
◆Text:None, Window, Bottom
:Text:Aren't you that hero who came here earlier?

I wish I can work faster on my game. But I don't want to get burned out. :(
I've been working on something on and off for a few years now, and I've been reluctant to share any details on the project before I had anything playable because I did not want to generate hype only for the project to go back on hiatus. That being said I believe what I'm working on is very unique and pushes the boundaries of what RPG Maker projects can be. Bold claims, I know but just wait.
Happy Mother's Day to all the moms :)
