A Little Message To Ya

Sign in to follow this  


So I've finished Morale & Sphere Affinity...at least until I get to the point where I plan on adding some animation affects. So now I'm working on Message Boxes and their layout.

Most info in the game is passed to the player in Message Boxes that look like scrolls. Here is a sample.


I have already worked on this part of the game before but it needs some tweaking.

I'm thinking I want to change some of the text shown to be more "character specific" when displaying character info. I do a lot of "tutorial-ish" displaying of info, which is ok sometimes. But other times I need to relate the info more to the character (like when putting the mouseover on character class and describing the specific class indicated).

I also need to adjust the placing of the message boxes so they appear in a desirable location specific to the mouseover (when it is a mouseover being shown).

And lastly I need to adjust the size of the message boxes so that it is smaller/larger depending on the amount of info shown.
