This would be AWESOME! You'd be able to type something in, and it could be used in speech bubbles.

I got this idea from doing some VBS scripts in notepad. It'd be like, you'd be asked to type your name somewhere, and it appears in speech bubbles later on.

First off - i'd explain the VBS script. First, you get a input box, asking to enter something to remember as "a". And then you'd get a message box, which in the script would look something like "Hey "+a+", what do you think about the weather?". So if i'd enter "Wouter" in the input box, it saves in the a, then whenever you get the message, it would say "Hey Wouter, what do you think about the weather?". AKA, it adds whatever you entered as A into the +a+ part.

This would make for loads of cool stuff, such as more user-friendly levels and user-involved gameplay. I'm just guessing and making that up, but still, it would.

Honestly, this isn't a feature that people would really notice (not when editing), such as, idk, there's a new material, so it has more potential for adding as well.

Script example:


a=inputbox("What is your name?")
msgbox "Oh, hello "+a+"! Thanks for using this script!"
Put this in notepad, save it with ".vbs" instead of ".txt" and run it. This is what i'd like to see in LBPV.

Nice touch, Woutery. I remember it was used in those Patapon games and it looked very nice. I like this idea!

You can see the player typing his name in there.

Sounds like an awesome Idea. Sounds like a good feature for an RPG level. (ex. It tells you to put in a name at the beginning of the game, and NPCs throughout the game address you as such).
(I sit in a daze thinking about the possibilities of it combined with a memorizer)8D

Or, perhaps it would put your player name in there automatically?

Not everyone has a good PSN name, right? I don't think that xxSupahNoScopeCODPwner64xx* would like that...

*xxSupahNoScopeCODPwner64xx was totally NOT thought up by Nys.
