In Darkbasic Pro, there's a command to change the background of text colour, and to make the background transparent or visible, so the text would be more readable.

Is there a way to do this in AGK2?

I think you would need to put a box/sprite behind the text. There are commands to get the text size, so that you can resize the box.

Or you could try giving your text image a background in an image editor... not sure what the result would be but it would be interesting (and easy) to find out!
