rm2k message box

okay, those of you people who make rm2k games are gonnna love this, it's a little tutorial on how to make your message box look really good, i use it myself in my game but here it goes:

1) first you need to pictures get them from here: http://companion.starlinkco.com:9195/FTP/Public/Upload/. the pics are called: "frame png" and "message-back png"

2)make a "common event", i like to call it "message box", make the common event, a "call". now make a "fork condition",
say: switch (then call the switch something) and the say "off" and "add else case"

3)now say "message style" and say

window format: trans
window position: down
option: allow other events to continue

4) (this is what makes it look so good)
show picture:
pic #: 19
select picture: message-back (the png you downloaded earlyer)
show position: position: X: 160 Y: 200
transparency: 50%
transparent colour: "stir"

show picture:
pic #: 20
select picture: frame (the other png)
show position: position: X: 160 Y: 200
transparent colour: "stir"

5) move picture:
pic #: 19
place position: position: X: 160 Y: 200
magnification: 100 %
transparency: 50%
movement time: 2

move picture:
pic #: 20
place position: position: X: 160 Y: 200
magnification: 100 %
movement time: 2
options: wait until done

change switch: "message box on"

6) now we begin on the "else" case:
move picture: this here should be just the same as the above, just no "magnification"

erase picture: #: 19
erase picture: #: 20

change switch: "message box off"

7)make another "common event" and call it "erase", now this event is just the same as what u made in the "else" case.

8)now to make it look good as i said to would then every time before you make a message in a event say:
call event: common events: message box.
and after the message say:
call event: common events: erase.

9) i hope u liked the tutorial
