This is extension provides developers the ability to use a “wysiwyg” style text editor for creating Show Message commands.

The way it works is the extension adds a command called “Show Message (Editor)”. This command is identical to the “Show Message” command. The only difference is there is now a new input for opening the editor. Simply click on “Message Editor” and then “Open Editor”.

Upon opening the editor, any existing text will be loaded in. Compatible message codes will be translated to their proper effects while other text codes will remain unchanged. Once the user edits their message, they may simply close the window. The new text will be converted back into VNM message codes and placed into the command text box. Be sure to click the command box to view the updated changes!

Here are all the compatible effects:

Bold, Italic, Underline, Strike-out, Text Size, Text Color (uses custom color codes!), Outline Color (uses custom colors also!)

Finally, the editor also provides find, replace, and special paste functions to help with some of those special moments when you need to find, replace, or… special paste something…

Welp, that’s all for now. Bye! ~

    Thank you so much! As always fantastic work, this is amazingly helpful.

    I’m trying to figure something out and was wondering if you knew a solution (or if I just missed something in the base program which is quite possible since I’m not particularly savvy when it comes to game dev.

    I’m trying to create a text box that isn’t a perfect rectangle or square.

    What I would like is to have a message box that takes up the entire screen, but I want the top left to have a little space for an image. Picture it being like a text that has a large, stylized letter at the start of a chapter.

    I figure there are two ways for this to happen, either making the message box a unique shape, or having two text boxes that are both used to display one entry of text. Is it possible to have text fill up one message box and then continue into another box? That way I could make a smaller rectangle next to my image box, and have a bigger one underneath which would provide me with the layout I’m going for.

    Thank you for any help and advice.

    And thank you again for this plugin, you make it possible for Luddites like me to realize their dream of game making!
