Man this is so annoying. I'm sure it's just one tiny setting i haven't tried, but i have looked through everything and i am starting to lose patience.
i wanted to create a message window for an rpg... this cant be done with strings because of the pre-determined layer system of mmf2 (have tried using the layer object, no help there) so decided to use the sub app object.
according to the debugger, the object is created, and everything works fine, except it is completely invisible. i have checked all the dumbass things like "create at start" and "display at start" i have purposely made it "show" in events, i have tried setting the application to use MDI, whatever that is, but that makes a different problem.
all i need is a message window for speech and story events. if anyone has any help on how to do that, i would be eternally grateful
Edit: i would use a static text object, but it isn't transparent or multi-line.
thanks for reading!
