This package includes 3 neat text effects that are fully commented and extremely easy to use!

Inside you will find a type string effect which types out your string character by character. With this effect you can type text that looks a lot like how a human would type.


  • Speed of typing

  • Type speed wiggle

  • Stopping on a period, question mark, exclamation

  • Stop time

  • Supports multi line text

Example Use:

 scr_typestring_init(string, type speed, type speed wiggle, stop at period, stop time);

Along with the organic like typing effect you will also find a matrix like typing effect which types out the string with random changing characters until the whole string is typed out.


  • Type speed of the random characters

  • Reveal speed of the actual string

  • Supports multi line text

Example Use:

scr_texteffect_init(String, Type Speed, Delay Time, Reveal Speed);
draw_text(100, 100, scr_texteffect_getvalue());

And lastly inside the the package you would find a matrix raining text effect which has random characters rain from the sky just like in the matrix! This effect includes 3 objects, the controller, head, and tail. The effect can be costly with a lot of rain effects are being produced. This effect has no setup, just pop in the controller into your room and the effect starts!

It's good, but the random string text has problems

I greatly enjoy the code, the only issue is that if you use spaces or # to create spaces with the random text that gets filled in later, it has a strange error when it actually fills in the text, where it starts removing letters from the bottom line rather than the line it's on. Not an easy fix I'd imagine, but other than that, it works great.

Great and simple to use

This package contains only the simple text reveal effect, not the matrix falling code one. The text effect that is in the package is well made though and works just fine, but there is no trace of the advertised matrix raining letters effect. Maybe this is an oversight or the producer hasn't made the effect himself and thus had to remove it.
Either way, the package doesn't hold up to what it promised. Now if the mentions of the missing effect were removed in the description or it was actually added, then this would be a great free effect!

I do see that it is in the package preview, but it isn't in what you actually download.
I'm willing to give 5 stars if this is fixed, since it was probably accidental.

EDIT: Effect updated, everything is there. Wonderful code, thanks!

scr_typestring functions are not in the package

It seems a very nice typing effect but inside the downloaded package there's only scr_texteffect functions. Is there any way to download the oder ones?

Thanks for your asset!

Great effect with many uses!

Not really much to say about this one, it does what it's supposed to, and well I might add...
