MODULE: SpeechBubble v0.8.0

(1/28) > >>

Snarky:
Here's a module to do comic book-style speech bubbles. It's an alternative to Phylactere, because the older module doesn't work properly with 32-bit color. This module requires AGS 3.4, and for now it only works in 32-bit mode (or rather, transparency only works in 32-bit mode).

Initial development of this module was paid for by bx83, who agreed to allow it to be open-sourced.

To use, you call Character.SayBubble():


--- Code: Adventure Game Studio ---  player.SayBubble("This line will be said in a speech bubble.");
To configure, you set the SpeechBubble properties:


--- Code: Adventure Game Studio ---  SpeechBubble.BorderColor = Game.GetColorFromRGB(0,128,0);  SpeechBubble.BackgroundColor = Game.GetColorFromRGB(128,255,128);  SpeechBubble.BackgroundTransparency = 33;  SpeechBubble.PaddingTop = 5;  SpeechBubble.PaddingBottom = 5;  SpeechBubble.PaddingLeft = 15;  SpeechBubble.PaddingRight = 15;
(You should probably do this in game_start() in GlobalScript.)

This module is still under development, and is currently missing some functionality (in particular support for background speech). Please report any bugs you experience.

The module is available on GitHub.

Thanks Snarky!

Crimson Wizard:
Finally someone did it :).


Although, Phylactere sounds so much nicer than Bubble, after all French is such a refined language, compared to the barbaric ones.

"Phylactere" always makes me think of "prophylactic". This module, in contrast, is 100% condom-free.
