[quote:qgolp2ei]But why use a text object at all? You could use a variable or arrays to store the text that should be displayed. Your way seems like a very unlogical way of doing it. Sounds like you should just use spritefonts instead which is exactly what you need without the unnecessary events. It works just like the text object but a lot more optimized. Just set the text with one event and you're good to go.
When I started using Construct that ( using text ) seemed the quickest way to do it. I'm sure there are other ways, but if it works why bother. I was already using it to display scores and debug stuff, so it was simple to just grab info from there instead of creating arrays and other stuff. Now that I have already done it, just copy paste into another game.
No, sprite fonts may not work with this. Using effects like glow, bevel and whatever else on text in Photoshop just looks better.
