From Shoot Em Up Kit
Pop-ups are sprites or text that appear on screen during a game. They can be triggered by Timers, Triggers or as Player or NPC Actions. They could be used to display information when the player reaches a trigger or collects a bonus, or to show a conversation by showing text pop-ups triggered by timers (these could include sound cues with spoken text).
Creating a Pop-Up
Select a pop-up to edit or Create New to create a new one. The General window will open and the message Editing PopUp [name] will appear at the top left of the screen.
|Name||Name of the pop-up.|
|Audio||Sound Cue to play when pop-up opens.|
|Pop-Up Duration||Time to display pop-up for (set to 0 to make Fire to Progress only).|
|Fire to Progress||Check box to close pop-up when Fire button is pressed.|
Adding Sprites, Text and Video
Use the Tools menu to add sprites, text and video to the pop-up in the same way as in the HUD Editor.
When the pop-up is complete, click Done on the Tools menu to return to the main HUD Editor screen.
