How to make lines change only on click
« on: 26 Dec 2017, 21:14 »
Hey, so I don't have any voice acting, which means the included timers for the text don't work very well. Either they're too slow or too fast, so I want to make it so it only moves on click (or any key). How do I do this?

Yes, that too.

This is a bit advanced scripting, but you may create options in game, and let them change properties Speech.SkipStyle and Game.TextReadingSpeed.
