So I found a plugin that I really want to use, Simultaneous Messages, by a member who hasn't been active in these forums since 2018. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to have compatibility with Galv Message Styles, so wondering if anyone has adjusted it themselves to work with Message Styles, or has an alternative solution?

Essentially I want to be able to bring up more than one Galv Style speech bubble at a time:

Galv did it here there is a timer for the other messages text and it's obviously compatible with his others plugin :kaopride:

Unfortunately that's not exactly I what I'm after. I need all the bubbles to stay up until the player clicks/interacts with them (or more accurately, to stay visible until the player interacts with one of them, at which point all of them should disappear), not just disappear after a set amount of time.

My Timer System is capable of displaying text.
It's kind of maybe an odd way to use it but it can do it.
That's the only way I really know to create text above events (can also change text too), can be used for lots of great things really... but also works for this. At least seemed to do well in my tests.

...and that would be a setup like this:

I'm actually looking for a solution which doesn't involve a timer - so they message boxes remain on the screen until the player clicks/triggers one of them. Or am I misunderstanding what you're suggesting your plugin can do?

Yeah my plugin can achieve that. The reason is it doesn't have use the timer expire part so it can count up instead and be "kind of hacked" to make never ending displaying text (doesn't have to change but it also can) this can be achieved using the parameter settings I have shown above.

Oh cool! I'll have a play and see if I can get it to do what I need. Thanks!

Hey, just wanted to check, will it be possible (using your plugin) to make the messages appear in a balloon so that it can be in the same style as what I'll be doing with Galv Message Styles on all my regular message balloons?

Also, any chance you have a youtube setup vid? Makes it easier to get my head around setup.
