  • I am trying to make a number like 1000,000 display as 1 million

    or a better example would be 152,000 as 1.52 Million and keep counting as it goes through the billions and trillions and so on

    Like Adventure Capitalist

    thanks for any help

  • Look into subevents in the manual to make a nested hierarchy of how you want to decide what gets the weird treatment. You'll need to compare if score > 1,000,000 change scoreText (or whatever you name your text/spritefont) to int(score/1000000) & "." & int((score-1000000)*.000001) & "million"

    Something along those lines, but check the math because I didn't bother counting zeroes on my phone. Just have a series of checks about how big the score is or isn't and format your text with some math.

  • Here, I made a quick .capx (in C2 208) to give you a rough example. You can toy with it to make it more to your liking, but I was just demonstrating how it could be done.

  • Thanks for the capx , I was able to alter it to display million trillion billion quadrillion quintillion but after that cant seem to go higher. I need to go up to numbers like decilion and way above any ideas. ??

  • Make it generic by storing your labels in an Array, write a loop to find the label you want based on an expression like "score < 10 ^ (loopindex * 3)" - since every label goes up every three powers of 10 (3 zeroes). Then you can add as many labels as you want into the Array.
