Hey. I'm trying to find a way to do Metal Gear Solid codec-style cutscenes by using an external file as a reference. The commands I was trying to implement in my failed attempts basically consist of:
-Change the font color
-Display a message
-Change the left portrait
-Change the right portrait
I then I realized I have absolutely no idea where to go with this. I could just hardcode the cutscenes the game, but that'd make the game a lot bigger and complicate things a bit (I want the cutscenes to change based on the actions the player did in the previous stage). What would be a painless way to implement this?
