I am making an intro sequence for my game, but I'm having some difficulty drawing two lines of text. The first line is "DEVELOPED BY:" referenced from a separate language file as "IntroSequence", "DevelopedBy". The next line (made by using + chr(13) + chr(10) +) is my name which I want to be kept static. I would essentially like the user to be able to make different language files being able to change the string reference "DEVELOPED BY:", but not the developer name. Now, I can get the text to draw if I use "DEVELOPED BY:#Mr.Mendelli" in the language file, or keeping both strings static in the script by declaring mytext = get_text("DEVELOPED BY:" + chr(13) + chr(10) +"Mr. Mendelli");. But If I use the second method, the DevelopedBy string cannot be translated in the language resource any more.

When I use the below script, GMS says two arguments are declared, but three are provided:

mytext = get_text("IntroSequence", "DevelopedBy" + chr(13) + chr(10) +"Mr. Mendelli");
image_alpha = 0;
statetime = 0;

How do I use my alias as an unchangeable separate line?

  • \$\begingroup\$ mytext = get_text("IntroSequence", "MadeBy") + chr(13) + chr(10) +"Mr. Mendelli";? Or even just mytext = get_text("IntroSequence", "MadeBy") + "#Mr. Mendelli"); \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ Of course! I forgot to close the first line, I can't believe I missed that. Thank you for your solution. If you provide it as an answer I'll accept and upvote. \$\endgroup\$ Aug 26, 2017 at 7:07

The closing brace at wrong place. Must be:

mytext = get_text("IntroSequence", "MadeBy") + chr(13) + chr(10) +"Mr. Mendelli";`

or even just

mytext = get_text("IntroSequence", "MadeBy") + "#Mr. Mendelli";
