wavy text
« on: April 08, 2020, 07:55:22 PM »

Hi guys,

I'm wondering if there is any way to make wavy text like in some visual novels or adventure games. For example each letter of a particular word goes up a bit, then the next one goes up while the previous letter returns to its original position etc.

I just saw this effect in the game The Lion's Song, where it's used to accentuate certain words.

Is there any way of doing this in Wintermute? And if yes, how?

Thanks

Not easily. You'd have to create separate text controls for each individual letter and animate them by changing their position.

Thanks!

So, when you say separate text controls, do you mean a window with a static control for each letter and then animating these individual letters by moving the Y attribute of the static control up and down. Did I get this right?
