    Thumbs up Example: Extensionless Integer scaling/Text Blitting/Pause menu

    Hey everyone

    I've mooched off members generosity here for a while now so I thought I'd add a contribution for once

    Requires CTF 2.5+ (not tested on previous/other editions)

    What is in it:

    Extensionless integer window scaling using a sub app:
    - uses only default objects
    - supports pretty much any resolution
    - landscape or portrait
    - easily resize window/fullscreen
    - uses sub apps
    - easy to use, 2 global values to set and you're good to go, 1 global value to adjust window size (in this example it's small/large/fullscreen)
    - keeps pixel art looking good
    - compact widget/low cost
    - your main game will be displayed in a sub app

    Since the integer scaling uses a sub app, it made sense to make a pause menu
    - popup menu example for pause menu/options menu/dialog box/input box
    - example includes options menu for changing screen size and text speed, saving and loading from ini
    - example includes an input popup, passing text back between sub apps

    And finally, a Text blitting widget, updated and modified for CTF 2.5+, based off some old work by Chris Burrows. Uses active objects. Fairly light weight and fast, about 100 lines plus 5 or 6 more to utilize it.
    - Requires String Parser object - thanks to the commenter below for pointing out that String Parser isn't a default object!
    - full, automatic wrapping, horizontally and vertically, auto pause and resume on any condition you want
    - easily place text anywhere on the screen
    - multiple "batches" of text so you can control multiple text areas and remove them individually (by tagging the letters)
    - automatic line break insertion
    - easy text changes using basic markup language in your text. For example: to change text |ggreen and then back to |wwhite. You could expand on this to do a lot of different stuff if you wanted!
    - support for fixed width and variable width character maps (examples of each)
    - input blitting
    - easy to use

    Hopefully this can be of use to some of you!

    I should also note this is designed for CTF 2.5+ (it uses some of the new features like child events)

    Turns out, it was the String Parser, I thought it was a default one for some reason

    Well, String Parser is compatible with all runtimes, so I don't see any problems in using it.
