How to linebreak a textstring in a plotscript?

Post by marionline »

Hello!
Is there a way to implem,ent a line break in a string variable?
As you can see on my screenshot, I need a "\n", so to say.

Code: Select all

... 

string sprintf(1, $0="You have nothing to put into the recycler. Gather some organic waste to recycle.")
show textbox (30)
wait for textbox
...

HSpeak supports \n in strings

Also, string sprintf is redundant there, you can just directly put the text in string 1:

Code: Select all

$1="You have nothing to put into the recycler.\nGather some organic waste to recycle." 
But to get automatic line breaks you should use a text slice set to Wrap.
