hey guys I could really use some help. I’m currently playing MV and I was wondering how I can change text speed without downloading custom plugins.

Thanks in advance

General Resources is where you share resources, not ask support questions.

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

These are Text codes to handle Text speed, please check the help file.

@Andar In MV it's impossible to change text speed. It is definitely possible in 2k, not sure about newer ones... But I'm definitely sure in MV it is not. It's not in the help files either.

@Poryg wrong, it's basic text control in default show text: \> to show text instantly without wait, \| and \. to add artificial wait times to slow down text display.
you can't change the text speed for everything in one go, but you can finetune the speed of each show text individually.

Do I have to insert that command before each word or can I enter it once and slow the entirety of the message box?

\> works for the rest of the line, but \. and \| are like the wait command - they need to be inserted exactly when you want the wait (could even be between letters oft a single word).

@Andar Making a wait command isn't really changing the text speed though. In rm2k3 there's \s command, which influences directly the speed of how the text shows. Kind of a pity they left it out of future rpg makers, because it's rather plain to have a monotonous speed scrolling.
