Ive been looking for something like this. I can not get the text to work though.

This does not work.

Also, I am trying to figure out how to make a new text using a2CreateFont but I do not know what it is expecting. What is the purpose of ID in a2Text?

The ID tells it which font to use. The ID is given to you when you call a2CreateFont().

fontId = a2CreateFont("Arial", 12, a2Size_Point(), a2Style_Bold())
a2Text fontId, 50, 50, "Hello world!", 0xFFFFFFFF

I'm really loving this plugin, it's so fast and easy to use.

I'm curious about line thickness though. Dot thickness is an easy one, all I have to do is use a circle instead of a dot and increase/decrease the radius as required, but what's the best way to produce a thick/thin line?

I would love to see the a2line command have an extra variable on the end which controls line thickness, even the ability to have a starting line thickness and ending line thickness, that would be great! (and in now thinking about this, a starting line colour and ending line colour would be awesome too!)

Or, can anyone recommend their favourite technique for controlling line thickness (and colour if you've dabbled with that too?).

This is a great plugin, really sped up my game!

2 problems:
You need to be able to scale images independently on x and y axis
The text doesn't seems to work in a windowed app with an ever-changing screen resolution.
