    Is it possible to combine the dialogue (text only) into the swf of the character. I find it a hassle to load the two separately.

    I could see it being possible, but that would be up to the creator of the swf character to add such a dialogue, which is kind of forceful if you ask me.

    In short, in your situation, likely no.

    If it was created into a swf dialogue like audio dialogues (just without the audio) you could get it to save into the .sdt file which doesn't currently support dialogue.txt saving but does save any/all swf mods added. This way it wouldn't have to be in the character swf for everyone.

    Though you would need to find someone willing to do it, and if/when Kona adds dialogue saving to the .sdt it would make them instantly obsolete since txt files are smaller in size.

    The loader supports dialogue saving.

    swf file just containing the text would be just as small, a few bytes if much.

    Don't know why what I was comparing has such a different size, but this is good to know.

    audio dialogues are much larger because of the audio in it. No one has released a swf dialogue without audio.

    What I was looking at wasn't SDT related, it was a manual for something that came with txt, pdf, and swf. I realized what it was, my brain was just asleep while I was trying to use it... it's the fact that the swf has controls in it.

    It was a video, I really just wasn't thinking clearly earlier lol.

    Edit: Interactive swf with navigation buttons. I got bored so I looked it up since video didn't seem properly describe it.

    Sorry for sending your thread way off topic Beginner1.
