[E] Change game text size, and allow bold/italics 

Message par TheDoctor » Ven Juil 29, 2016 8:34 pm

Just something I thought of for a future update. If we could perhaps have the option to change the test size in the editor for certain scenes. I wouldn't want to get crazy with it, so perhaps a "small" text option that'll fit up to four lines of text in the text box (useful for scenes where characters are whispering, or if you're wanting to make a different style of game from the AA series and want to fit more text on screen). Also, for yelling characters, you could have a "large" text option that'll fit up to two lines of text in the text box.

Kwando also brought up a good point about allowing bold and italic text as well for emphasis, or perhaps when a character uses a foreign word in a sentence.

It's not a high priority, but just something to consider for the future.

tbh, I'd want something like bolding and italics for text emphasis as well.

My instinct is to say that these won't be doable without major changes to the text display engine, but if I have the time, I'll take a look here and post back.

EDIT: Bold and italics are doable! In display_engine_text.js, repeat the code for the colour case in typeText, starting on line 303. You'd just need to add bold and italic tags and change the color attribute to font-weight and font-style. Of course, it would be best if we could do it without boilerplate.

So, we just have to add BBcode?

No, you misunderstood my post. This feature is not written. I was giving kwando instructions on how to write it. If it is written, it will work exactly like color and instant tags.

Ah, I was afraid of this. Quote Unas, from one of his old posts:

Unas a écrit :However, the problem with changing font size is the font itself : the AA font is a bitmap (pixelated) font that only exists in one given size. When rendered in a different size, it becomes ugly.
So unless I add the ability to change the player font, it would be practically useless - and for the moment, custom fonts are not part of my plans.

Hmm... So, outside of someone managing to make a PW-esque font at the alternate sizes dicussed, this feature's a no go.

That said, what about bold/italic text? Same issue?

Here's what it looks like: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/78748757/bold_italic_test.png Set to 50% zoom for best results. There's pixelation when I try to resize the image through an image editor.

This would be a really easy feature to write; I'm just more focused on resolving Issue #154 at the moment.

What about the ability to center or right-adjust the text?

Nothing has changed since this topic. "I could do it at some point but it'd be a lot of work, which I don't want to focus on at the moment." I'm focusing on squashing bugs and improving editor usability before adding new features.

As a suggestion for how this could be implemented, maybe it could be added to the colour/instant tags, so that we can apply text styles to colored text without worrying about tagging problems? The current colour tags would retain their functionality, but for italics, you could add a single asterisk at the end, two for bold, and three for bold italics.

Is there a reason why adding bold or italics tags would create "tagging problems"? I'd like to avoid adding new features to the language.
