  • This didn't work for me either. I tried to copy and paste the examples, but nothing happened.

  • Hi Skymen! I freaking adore this asset, I cannot express you how much it has helped with the development of my recent project. Just a quick petition, could there be a document or an example project with all the different options, like changing color of the text, the size, animating. I know that there's the Mathias excellent example, but I feel like I'm lacking some of the new features as well as the different tags. Any help would be gladly appreciated it. Again, thank you for all the amazing contributions you have made to the construct community.

    • Hey! I'm glad it helps you, and please do send me screenshots of your project, I'd love to see it :D

      About documentation, yeah I agree, and I have been willing to make proper examples and docs for over a year now, but I cannot find the time and motivation to get it done :/

      I have an entire prototype for a Visual Novel engine just sitting on my computer, unfinished. I have a barebones website that was supposed to provide complete docs for this addon too, but same issue: It's unfinished.

      I'd love to finally be able to do this one day, but so far it's been exceptionally hard for me to keep up.

      If you do have questions about the addon, or require some help on how to use it properly, please do contact me on Discord or Twitter, I'll be glad to help :)

  • AnD4D Ben10000K a new update for SFDX will be coming in the next few days, and should solve your issues with the addon :)

  • Yeah, this is abandoned :(

    • No this is not abandoned, I'm sorry I'm just very very busy and have a ton of work and it's very hard to find the time to work on this in between everything else.

  • Does anyone actually use this plugin in their code? I paid for the Construct 2 version, and am disappointed that this C3 one is so convoluted compared to the C2 one.

    It's been almost half a year since I asked for an example of how to even use the plugin :(

    • Hi, sorry for the very late reply. I have been terribly busy lately, but I finally managed to get an example thanks to the amazing work of Mateus.

      He made the example and provided it to me so I could share it here for free :).

  • Sorry to pester, but is there any update toward that example c3p I requested a couple months back? I'm using C3's [color=rgb(0,255,0)] forumla, and it's vile compared to SFD's elegant "C green" I used in Construct 2.

  • I don't suppose it's possible for your plugin to add those extra features to the debug, is there? Such as the scale, spacing, etc. I used this all the time in C2 to get the font looking how I wanted, but Construct's base SpriteFont seems to be very limited compared to what you had made.

  • Any chance we can get an example c3p so we can see how to change colours easily?

  • What are all the functions?

    • Because in the old version there were some interesting ones like <A swing> or the <tw wait> but those don't work anymore and there aren't in the documentation

      • Hi, this plugin is a bit more complex than the C2 one. Instead of providing premade functions, it allows you to define your own.

        For instance [sfdx=offsety 8*cos(t * 300 + i * 90)]my wavy text[/sfdx] will do a wavy text.

        However, angle doesn't work as the default spritefont object doesn't support an angle tag yet :(

  • This seems really really amazing! However ... is there any working example of how to make it work? Perhaps its just me, but really could not get to make any of these features work ...
