TTE will be a re-written version of CTB, since CTB got popular. It will do the same things, and more, but in a more efficient and customizable way. TTE is a dialog engine that tries to be as easy as possible to use, while giving you as much power as possible.
TTE is currently on hold for an undetermined amount of time. Life factor made my free time very limited and I see less and less time to work on GameMaker projects. TTE is still on my todo list, but bear in mind that it's not something that will happen in the near future.
Because I'm pushing the deadline further, I'll be providing a special service to redeem myself: For a limited time ( about a month after the release of TTE ) I will help explain and integrate TTE in your project... FOR FREE*!
*I will not code the dialog, I will show you how to use it, and how to implement it in your game, only once, so if you need 50 dialogs, we'll do one together, and you'll have to do the other 49 on your own.
Here is an example of what the TTE code will look like: Screenshot
CTB - Ced's TextBox
A fully customizable and automatic RPG-style dialogue box. This dialogue group of scripts let you easily choose : - Size and position of the dialogue; - Color of text ( many colors per messages! ) - Font and size of text ( many per messages! ) - Speed and pause effects, - Play sound - Run script in middle of message - Word-wrap and Overflow supported!
The asset is currently released for free as a demo. It will remain as long as the asset isn't completed.
