    Text to Screen

    Is it possible to write text to screen from a script file?

    YES, you can.

    The script might look something like this .....
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    dtext
    30,30
    9
    0
    test me


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    This will default to the current text syle, of course....
    You might want to add the style command ...
    See below for an example....
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    -style
    romand
    romand.shx
    0
    .9
    0
    n
    n
    n
    dtext
    30,30
    .9
    0
    test me

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    ..... something like that .... hope that helps ... :mrgreen:
    later.

    Architech,

    I thought it would work too! Until I tried it. After some investigating I found:

    "dtext" command *does not* work in scripts.
    "text" command *does* work in scripts
    to get the same effect as dtext, use 2 blank lines (2 returns) between lines of text.

    Hope this helps!
