Dynamic Textfields

Postby Marco Arsenault » January 14th, 2019, 12:17 am

Hello, I'm strongly considering buying GAF Pro for Unity and the free version is demonstrating great results for our game characters but I'm checking if it would work for our User Interface as well. I'm having trouble converting a dynamic textfield (static works). In the documentation it says

"Other features
You can create Dynamic Text Field in Flash Pro, give it Instance Name, convert SWF file in the Nesting conversion mode and have access to it as to Text Field. You can change the text in this Text Field or any other property provided by a framework in runtime."

Is that a feature for another platform than unity?
Am I missing something? :D

Hi,

Yes, it is for cocos2d engine, and we planned to add this feature for unity but we got some issues because of canvas. So, unfortunately this does not work for unity.

Ah ok yeah, makes sense, is it still on the table to be supported? If so is there some kind of timeline or ETA?

By the way, in the limitation section of the documentation, it's kinda confusing where it says:

Unity3d GAF limitations
"Can't display dynamic text fields (dynamic text fields are available in animations that converted using conversion mode Nesting)."

Corrected. Thanks.
Unfortunately, there is no plans and ETA for that feature.
