Ok, i have a small test map to try to have the map load and strait away display scrolling text. the map loads into cinematic mode, but the text does not scroll. here is what i did.
In my test map I have the info_player_start with -Key:target -Value: spawn1.
Spawn1 is a target_scriptrunner with -Key:targetname -Value: Spawn1.
Spawn1 has the -Key:usescript -Value:levelonestart
Here is my "levelonestart" script
//Generated by BehavEd
rem ( "levelonebegin" ); camera ( /*@CAMERA_COMMANDS*/ ENABLE ); camera ( /*@CAMERA_COMMANDS*/ FADE, < 0.000 0.000 0.000 >, 0.000, < 0.000 0.000 0.000 >, 1.000, 0 ); camera ( /*@CAMERA_COMMANDS*/ MOVE, $tag( "scroll1", ORIGIN)$, 0 ); camera ( /*@CAMERA_COMMANDS*/ PAN, $tag( "scroll1", ANGLES)$, < 0.000 0.000 0.000 >, 0 ); camera ( /*@CAMERA_COMMANDS*/ ZOOM, 60.000, 0 ); camera ( /*@CAMERA_COMMANDS*/ FADE, < 0.000 0.000 0.000 >, 1.000, < 0.000 0.000 0.000 >, 0.000, 1000 ); set ( "SET_SCROLLTEXTCOLOR", "WHITE" ); set ( "SET_SCROLLTEXT", "@scrolling1" );
Here is my extra.pre file @scrolling1 "This is about a test there is nothing wrong with your system.\n\n This line has one. n\n And this line has three n's\n\n\n and this line has none."
here is my directory structure test/maps/test.bsp test/scripts/levelonestart.ibi test/scripts/extra.pre test/ext_data/npcs.cfg
so the map starts with a cinematic but no text scrolls and it just hangs there until i escape.
please someone tell me whats wrong?
well for one......you dont have the disable command for the camera.... if u dont have this it might fuckt things up...
If that doesnt do it.......well dont ask me
super i entered the disable command with a wait command and it plays for the time specified and ends. Great!! but the text does not scroll. please anyone help me im freakin out help help????
Sorry never tried the scrolling thing..but Im glad I helped u with something :)
Good luck to you!
I was trying to figure out the scrolling text thing a month and a half ago before I got side tracked. Anyways, have you viewed the scrolling text in ShaderED2? I can't remember where I found them(demo and retail) though. What I want to know is what is your text printed on. What is a .pre file?
the extra.pre file contains the text that is supposed to scroll in fromt of the camera. but i couldn't get it to work. i'm trying to do it with a shader and still having problems with that as well. oh well
I swear I saw the scrolling text jpgs somewhere. They are very long. I figured Raven Software turned them into some kind of shader. I tried to duplicate it and searched the web for the right Star Wars font. Raven doesn't have the right font by the way. If you can make a "jpg text" you should be able to do it.
Did it work?
nope, i used q3ase to make a shader that scrolled the text and threw that and a camera in a small room. it worked that way.
