  • Text Effects-NONE!

    I can't even begin to understand how you guys don't have text effects. What I mean by this is how text can do a quick swipe into the page or a diffuse effect or even a vertical swipe where the text shows up line by line

    This is not Adobe Flash cs3 :P search for the text decoration plugin if you wish such effects

      All those effects can be done just fine in AMS, albeit not as dramatic as you're thinking I am sure, but nonetheless just fine...

          What like this?

          Took me ten minutes to write the code...just get creative man, you'll be amazed what AMS can do.

          PUT THIS CODE ON A BUTTON FOR TESTING

          Code:
          function TextSweepFromLeft(sParagraphName, sMyText, iParagraphX, iParagraphY)
          
          
          
          -- Paragraph object properties table.
          tblParaProps = {};
          tblParaProps.Text = sMyText;
          tblParaProps.FontName = "Arial";
          tblParaProps.FontSize = 10;
          tblParaProps.FontWeight = FW_NORMAL;
          tblParaProps.FontAntiAlias = true;
          tblParaProps.FontScript = ANSI_CHARSET;
          tblParaProps.FontUnderline = false;
          tblParaProps.FontStrikeout = false;
          tblParaProps.FontItalic = false;
          tblParaProps.Width = 5 + (String.Length(sMyText)*8);
          tblParaProps.Height = 40;
          tblParaProps.Y = iParagraphY;
          tblParaProps.X = -tblParaProps.Width;
          tblParaProps.ScrollVertical = SCROLL_AUTO;
          tblParaProps.ScrollHorizontal = SCROLL_OFF;
          tblParaProps.Alignment = ALIGN_LEFT;
          tblParaProps.BGStyle = BG_TRANSPARENT;
          tblParaProps.BGColor = Math.HexColorToNumber("000000");
          tblParaProps.BorderStyle = BORDER_NONE;
          tblParaProps.BorderColor = Math.HexColorToNumber("FFFFFF");
          tblParaProps.ScrollStyle = SCROLL_STANDARD;
          tblParaProps.SkinFile = "";
          tblParaProps.TooltipText = "";
          tblParaProps.Enabled = true;
          tblParaProps.Visible = true;
          tblParaProps.Cursor = CURSOR_ARROW;
          tblParaProps.ResizeLeft = false;
          tblParaProps.ResizeRight = false;
          tblParaProps.ResizeTop = false;
          tblParaProps.ResizeBottom = false;
          tblParaProps.ColorNormal = Math.HexColorToNumber("FFFFFF");
          tblParaProps.ColorHighlight = Math.HexColorToNumber("FFFFFF");
          tblParaProps.ColorDown = Math.HexColorToNumber("FFFFFF");
          tblParaProps.ColorDisabled = Math.HexColorToNumber("C0C0C0");
          tblParaProps.HighlightSound = SND_NONE;
          tblParaProps.HighlightSoundFile = "";
          tblParaProps.ClickSound = SND_NONE;
          tblParaProps.ClickSoundFile = "";
          
          Page.CreateObject(OBJECT_PARAGRAPH, sParagraphName, tblParaProps) 
          
          for x = 1, (iParagraphX + tblParaProps.X) do
          Paragraph.SetPos(sParagraphName, x, tblParaProps.Y);
          
          
          
          end
          
          end
          
          TextSweepFromLeft("Paragraph1", "This is some text right here.", 550, 500)
          P.S. Thanks for the inspiration! I'm gonna write a whole mess of these little text effects for my action script treasure pile.

            Here, I decided to play with it just a bit more so as to demonstrate the power of AMS.

            Code:
            Text = {};
            
            -- Paragraph object properties table.
            tblParaProps = {};
            tblParaProps.Text = "my text here";
            tblParaProps.FontName = "Arial";
            tblParaProps.FontSize = 10;
            tblParaProps.FontWeight = FW_NORMAL;
            tblParaProps.FontAntiAlias = true;
            tblParaProps.FontScript = ANSI_CHARSET;
            tblParaProps.FontUnderline = false;
            tblParaProps.FontStrikeout = false;
            tblParaProps.FontItalic = false;
            tblParaProps.ScrollVertical = SCROLL_AUTO;
            tblParaProps.ScrollHorizontal = SCROLL_OFF;
            tblParaProps.Alignment = ALIGN_LEFT;
            tblParaProps.BGStyle = BG_TRANSPARENT;
            tblParaProps.BGColor = Math.HexColorToNumber("550000");
            tblParaProps.BorderStyle = BORDER_NONE;
            tblParaProps.BorderColor = Math.HexColorToNumber("FFFFFF");
            tblParaProps.ScrollStyle = SCROLL_STANDARD;
            tblParaProps.SkinFile = "";
            tblParaProps.TooltipText = "";
            tblParaProps.Enabled = true;
            tblParaProps.Visible = true;
            tblParaProps.Cursor = CURSOR_ARROW;
            tblParaProps.ResizeLeft = false;
            tblParaProps.ResizeRight = false;
            tblParaProps.ResizeTop = false;
            tblParaProps.ResizeBottom = false;
            tblParaProps.ColorNormal = Math.HexColorToNumber("FFFFFF");
            tblParaProps.ColorHighlight = Math.HexColorToNumber("FFFFFF");
            tblParaProps.ColorDown = Math.HexColorToNumber("FFFFFF");
            tblParaProps.ColorDisabled = Math.HexColorToNumber("C0C0C0");
            tblParaProps.HighlightSound = SND_NONE;
            tblParaProps.HighlightSoundFile = "";
            tblParaProps.ClickSound = SND_NONE;
            tblParaProps.ClickSoundFile = "";
            
            
            function Text.SweepFromLeft(sParagraphName, tblParagraphProperties, iParagraphStopX, iParagraphStopY, iSpeed)
            
            tblParagraphProperties.Width = 6 + (String.Length(tblParagraphProperties.Text)*7);
            tblParagraphProperties.Height = 30;
            tblParagraphProperties.Y = iParagraphStopY;
            tblParagraphProperties.X = -tblParagraphProperties.Width;
            
            Page.CreateObject(OBJECT_PARAGRAPH, sParagraphName, tblParagraphProperties) 
            
            for x = 1, (iParagraphStopX + tblParagraphProperties.X) do
            Paragraph.SetPos(sParagraphName, x, tblParagraphProperties.Y);
            
            	for y = 1, (100 - iSpeed) do
            	Paragraph.SetPos(sParagraphName, x, tblParagraphProperties.Y);
            	end	
            	
            
            end
            
            end
            
            --change the last number in the function to change the speed of the text effect (0-100)
            Text.SweepFromLeft("Paragraph1", tblParaProps, 550, 500, 0);
            Don't forget, there are many folks around here that can help with code too and more user-made, free plugins that you can shake a stick at!
