View Full Version : Yes, use F4F Prototype In Game Keyboard

I was thinking about how to make it so a player could input a name in a level, and have it show up in text boxes in other parts of the level. I realised that this would require using physical or hologram text, and thus a lot of copying letters from a font pallete, or writing with a material brush, then moving them into position.

So I decided to make a keyboard, so I could quickly pump out letters in a nice row.

Hope you find this useful, but it's lacking a few features due to my inexperience with this sort of thing. It is therefore, really only useful for making text in create mode, and is not quite as useful in Play mode.

Updated: Now includes Backspace, flashy light bar thing, "." "," and " ' " signs. Also, included text on the side can be edited to change the emitted text. Backspace can be sort of glitchy when using the W, M, and N keys.

Sure this could be useful for applications like name input, but being able to take a name which someone inputs and then be able to use it in the level is the hard part it seems. Cool idea though.
