Hello all,

I'd like to write quite a long explanation in custom.scn, but not all appears on screen after pressing F5 at main me, only the last.

How can I do to allow users to read all my explanations ?
There is about 45 lines print "..................."

Thank you for your help :)

Hmm maybe by changing the screen "resolution" from 25 lines to 43 and shortening the text a little bit.
Or by using something like "more", except that I don't know if the file you're talking about is some kinda batch file or something else ^^

The best way will probably be to divide into two screens and use space bar to advance to the next screen.

Merci Constance :)
Mais ce n'est pas la solution que je souhaiterais utiliser :?

Thanks Victor,

This is something I would like to do but I don't know how ?
Which code can divide into two screens and which one to let the space bar go to next screen ?

Split the content into two files eg. custom.scn and custom2.scn.

Then in custom.scn, put something like:

Code: Select all

if ($lastKey == key[space]); then script custom2.scn

Code: Select all

with a prompt and nothing happens when I press the space bar.

I'll continu my tests, do you have an idea ?
