Animate the text to simulate it being written character by character (also called “typewriter” effect), with a customizable time between each character. Useful for dialogue scenes or visual novels.

Add the behavior to a Text object (BBText, Bitmap Text object) and choose the interval between characters.

  • When the text changes, the automatic typing starts again from the beginning with the new text.
  • You can change the speed of the text typing by changing the interval with events.
  • Use a condition to check if the typing finished.
  • You can also pause the typing and resume it after.
