First time posting, so sorry if this is in the wrong place or something.

I was trying to make one of my characters more ethereal (can stop time and talk directly to the player, but has no impact on the story itself), so I wanted to give him something more meaningful than the text boxes that everybody else will get. I was thinking something similar to this:

(Game is "Fishing Paradiso" on the App Store, if you're interested. Not mine in any capacity.)

Is there a way of doing this (centered text, no/transparent text box, larger text) in RPG Maker VX Ace, while keeping everyone else's text boxes more or less the same as default? Would I need to learn how to script? Does someone else have a script that does something like this?

Thanks in advance.

This can only be done with a script.

I've moved this thread to RGSS3 Script Requests. Please be sure to post your threads in the correct forum next time. Thank you.

I think this can be done with the default engine plus a few scripts, no?
Here goes some scripts that change the font: Ace Message System and ATS: Special Message Codes.
You could try using other font for this character, maybe change the outline color, add shadow, and of course, you can change the font size by default~

There's a Background option in Show Text where you can set text box to Transparent and Position to Middle.
To center text message requires ATS: Formatting script- https://rmrk.net/index.php?topic=44964.0
Put \a[1] in Show Text for message to be centered. If you want to center another message use \a[1]
Results may vary depending on font.

As if my week could not be more shitty, my Iphone is currently stuck on the apple screen. I'm decently tech savvy so I'm going through all the options b4 I have to go to apple, but from the signs I'm pretty hosed.
Rip a buncha music I had on there, photos from trips, and every message. I shoulda backed it up :(
