I'm a noob to scripting... Just to get that out of the way.

I have a window that I would like to cycle through a bunch of tips.

I know how to make the window, I know how to display the text in that window, but I DON'T know how to cycle it through a bunch of hints without direct input.

The goal is for text to change in the window every few seconds while the menu is open.

Thank you!

every update, modify a variable (like increase it by 1) then when it reaches a certain amount, move to the next text. Then after it reaches the last text, return the variable to it's base value.

Thank you!

Would you mind writing that out for me? Syntax errors are the bane of my existence right now...

Pft... people think the moon landing is fake. Nonsense. The moon doesnt even exist in the first place, it's just the reflection of the earth on the surface of space.
