Howdy, Stranger!

It looks like you're new here. If you want to get involved, click one of these buttons!

is it difficult to make the text which will be displayed with animation?

is there someone who can tell me?. how to display text, which will gradually be printed on the player's eyes. I almost completed my game and with this job I have problems. need to display the text that will itself print. the full text is set in code.

    @creative_novice I'm not sure what you're asking printed on the players eyes or display text that will itself print. There 2 ways to display text, that's with the text or print commands. Can you explain more.

    Perhaps progressively displaying a string "letter-by-letter"?

    Are you after something like this.

    EDIT: Depending on how you want to animate this, you could use tweens.

    function setup()
        tab={}
        str="Here is some text. I dont know how you want to animate it."
        split()
        rot=0
    end
    
    function draw()
        background(40, 40, 50)    
        fill(255)
        for a,b in pairs(tab) do
            pushMatrix()
            translate(WIDTH/2,HEIGHT/1.5-a*40)
            rotate(rot)
            text(b,math.random(-3,3),0)
            popMatrix()
            rot=rot+math.random(-5,5)
        end
    end
    
    function split()
        for t in string.gmatch(str,"%a+") do
            table.insert(tab,t)
        end    
    end

    Here's some animation using tweens.

    function setup()
        tab={}
        table.insert(tab, txt ("Here is some text.",8,200,600,300,500))
        table.insert(tab, txt ("Tap the screen to start.",8,300,200,300,500))
    end
    
    function draw()
        background(0)
        for a,b in pairs(tab) do
            b:draw()   
        end
    end
    
    function touched(t)
        if t.state==BEGAN then
            for a,b in pairs(tab) do
                b:touched(t)   
            end
        end
    end
    
    txt=class()
    
    function txt:init(str,t,xs,ys,xe,ye)
        self.str=str
        self.col=color(0, 244, 255, 255)
        self.starts={x=xs,y=ys}
        self.ends={x=xe,y=ye}
        self.time=t
    end
    
    function txt:tw()
        tween(self.time,self.starts,self.ends,tween.easing.sineOutIn,
            function() self.str="" end)
    end
    
    function txt:draw()
        fill(self.col)
        text(self.str,self.starts.x,self.starts.y)
    end
    
    function txt:touched(t)
        self:tw()
    end

    Here's another example.

    displayMode(FULLSCREEN)
    supportedOrientations(LANDSCAPE_ANY)
    
    function setup()
        tab={}
        str="This is another example showing how to animate text. You can display whatever you want."
        for z=1,#str do
            table.insert(tab,string.sub(str,z,z))
        end
        t=0
        d=360/#tab-.01
    end
    
    function draw()
        background(40, 40, 50)
        for a,b in pairs(tab) do
            t=t+d
            pushMatrix()
            translate(100+a*10,300+math.sin(math.rad(t))*200)
            text(b,0,0)
            popMatrix()
        end
    end
    
  • WOW! My game will be ready in a few days. Popularity codea should rise up

  • how to add recent and proposed animations in one of the pages this code?

        function setup()
            gameMode = Str1
        end
    
        function draw()
            background(40, 40, 50)
            gameMode()
            strokeWidth(5)
        end

            font("Baskerville-BoldItalic")
            fill(0, 0, 0, 255)
            text("1", WIDTH/2, HEIGHT/2.4)
        end
    
        function Str2()
            background(255, 255, 255, 255)

        end
    
        function touched(t)

                    --music("Dropbox:Test")
                    gameMode = Str2
                end
            end

    So first it's not called gamemode = Strl, it's called gamemode = Strl() I mean the brackets. If you don't use brackets it will return nil.

    @TokOut please don't try to answer questions until you've learned some basic lua. gameMode here is a function pointer. You don't use the brackets when setting a pointer, because you are deferring the call until it is needed, in this case, in the draw loop gameMode(). This is a very common technique in finite state machines.

    @creative_novice you've been given lots of samples in this thread. Why don't you try incorporating one of them yourself? As it is, we have no idea what text you are trying to display, when, or why. You've given us almost nothing to go on. I think your game might need more than a few days :)

  • no. the game definitely will be completed within a few days. if I gave you full instructions, then you could explode the brain :p . you helped me a lot and based on your examples and your knowledge I made a very interesting game. I just want to do something interesting. the basics of Lua I know is normal.
    thank you Google translator

  • thinking. will release the game as it is. when will the money turn to more detailed help.
    who could help the currency? and for how much?

    if there are Russian, it will be still better
