Slick's Tutorials - Text

Share Collapse

Author Comments

A lot of times there are flash movies where the text ruins the whole thing. There weren't any text tutorials, so I made one. It's my first tutorial, so if its not too hot, please leave a review on how I could improve. Thanks.

My goodness it's been quite a while since I've last been here.

Thanks for the good review, it's been even longer since I made this, yet the same basic concept remains true, crappy text = crappy flash.


Good tips and good music what more could i want

your tut had good tips that i havent seen over and over again like some other tuts... and i LOVED the music... good job

SlikRik19 responds:

Thanks man. Always nice to get a good review.


my ears are bleeding

Nice tip, but that music was terrible, why did you add that?! it had nothing to do with how to make text look good.. Keeping things simple is sometimes the best.

SlikRik19 responds:


That was my first interactive movie, so I was a n00b back then.
Thanks for the advice.

But you don't have to break the text apart unless your sending the Flash Document to someone over MSN or an email,etc...even if someone else on Newgrounds or something didn't have that font,it doesn't mean you have to break it apart.

Just telling you that :)

SlikRik19 responds:

If you want them to see it, yes it does. If the text isn't broken apart and you don't have that font, it will get replaced by a different font. Same thing as if you were writing something in Word using a special font, and then you sent it to someone who doesn't have that font, the font will get replaced with another one.
Either way, thanks for a good review.
