    Custom Fonts for apps & Typewriter Effect?

    What is the best method of using custom made fonts in an app? Right now I am just using active objects and probably backdrop objects for the text. But I don't think that would count as a true font style, since it's just placing letters of the font style into words. Wasn't there an extension, or some sort of font maker that can make fonts for apps easily?

    Also, whats the best method of using a typewriter effect in an app? Like how one letter appears after another. For example when a story is told in a game, or someone is saying something. How would I go about doing this?

    There was an absolute spate of "typewriter effect" threads a while ago - here's one of them that links to a couple of examples. (You may need to change the domain name to the temporary "theclickteam.com" domain name on the links.)

    As Game Master says, the Text Blitter object will allow you to have text objects with custom lettering taken from a sprite sheet. The way that MMF uses "real" fonts requires them to be installed as part of the Windows setup.
