I was inquiring yesterday about how to do a basic typewriter effect and I found some great previous solutions on the forum but now as i'm getting into this a little deeper I'm wondering about some deeper stuff.
I want to have a typewriter sound to go with it. I can trigger a sound with each tick sure, but I can't figure out a way to know when the text typing is complete and thus create a condition to say "this is no longer looping", stop. It seems like there might be some kind of "upon completion" parameter that I could use.
I could imagine some kind of "typing active" variable that flips off when the last word in the source text is done.
a more manual (but less efficient) idea would be to actually count how many letters a given source text object has and track it that way.. but that's really tedious with this project which has many pages of varying text. Maybe there is a way to "get letter count" and pass that to a counter var?
I just don't know how I might be able to set it up so that C2 knows the text is complete and act upon that knowledge.
