Progress: New Text Box
Wink has been undergoing a lot of changes with our upgrade from Gamemaker 7 for Mac to Gamemaker Studio 2. With that' I've had to change quite a bit of underlying code.
The biggest change so far has been the text box system used when the player talks to an NPC.
The old text system included with the platforming/RPG engine no longer functioned because of reliance on features that Gamemaker left behind in the transition to Gamemaker studio. Although it's been a lot of work, I'm happy to say that the change has been for the better.
After a lot of research, I decided to go with Ced's Textbox which is very simple but covers everything I need and more from the text boxes in Wink. You can find it here. It's a really good, free, and has a lot of capabilities https://marketplace.yoyogames.com/assets/2195/ctb-ced-s-textbox-demo?tab=reviews...
