Typewritter text effect scrolls at different speeds

  • I've been using the typewritter effect, for in-game dialogue. The timing is set to "Every tick", but some lines appear on the screen noticeably slower than the other lines. Is this something to do with delta time?

  • Sort of. Fewer frames per second means fewer characters are shown per second. DT is simply the time it took to complete the previous tick. To keep the effect at a constant speed (or as close to constant as possible), you'll need to modify the effect to take dt into account.

    Thanks for the example file. It looks like I'll have to rework my dialogue system in order to get it like this. Ah well, on to work I guess!
