GM:S Dialog System

Pretty easy to use but fully featured Dialog system for GameMaker:Studio 1

Features:

  • Basic messages, that just have text
  • Different coloured text within one message
  • Different sized text within one message
  • The speaker's name separated from the rest of the message
  • 2 spots for images of the character to appear behind the message. See image below
  • These images can slide in, and be animated
  • Automatic line wrapping, even splitting extremely long messages into multiple boxes
  • Text appearing letter by letter, with variable speed and skip to end
  • Beeping noise while text is appearing, and when messages close
  • Questions with multiple options (up to 15)
  • Text input for things like names
  • Confirmation for both forms of input
  • Stuff triggered by messages
  • Variables in messages
  • Support for importing dialog from an external .ini file. Good for multilingual games
  • Pause the rest of the game while dialog is visible, and darken the surroundings
