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?

Are the default-size "chibi" sprites really a bad thing for a project? I'm not planning to sell my game anyway but I was wondering if they were as hated as some videos seem to claim...
Only 9 things left on the to-do list before my game's next big update. Minus the soul-crushing playtesting session, of course! So close...
