    Hi Guys,


    I know that it's possible to use a switch before my Show Text content to automatically display the name of a party member or actor (based on a list). Is it possible to also display the character image without manually selecting the image on each Show Text Command?


    From my searches it appears it can be done with a script/plugin, but I'm still trying to get to grips with the standard functions and don't really want to enter into the murky world of the more advanced aspects of the tool-set (yet).


    Am I missing something?

    You'll need a messaging system type plugin for this. By default the engine cannot change the set picture of the show text command.


    There are several such plugins, some only add a few more textcodes to the engine while others add a lot more functionality to it and are more complex to configure (for example variables to change window size etc.)

    Thanks Andar,


    I figured that might be the case.
