Hi,

Say I have a string:
----------------------------------------------------------------
global ActOneBoyText as string
ActOneBoyText = "Boy: Hi...Wanna hang out?"
----------------------------------------------------------------

How can I display the string onto the screen one character at a time until it's fully displayed?
(almost like the text is being typed)

Let me know, thanks!

You can actually loop through a text and set the alpha of individual characters in said text. Actually, you could probably accomplish this with tweening.
