I want to make a script that plays an audio based on the last letter of a chat message. The point is to make a custom chat box that reads out every individual letter (Like Animal Crossing).
Currently, the chat box will take one letter from what you said in chat at a time like this: (Each line is what the variable is.)
H He Hel Hell Hello Hello, Hello, Hello, W Hello, Wo Hello, Wor Hello, Worl Hello, World Hello, World!
I want it to find only the last letter, so i can play the audio for that letter. How do I do this?
You can use
string.sub(myString, -1) to get the last character from a string.
I suppouse you aren't using a for loop, and writing all these letters out. So i'll teach you for loops.
local string = "Hello, World!" --the string to do the shenanigans local lastletter --the last letter that will be set by the for loop local textlabel = Instance.new("TextLabel") -- a placeholder textlabel for i = 1,#string do if i == #string then lastletter = string:sub(i,i) --if variable i (times went thru the code) is how many characters there are in the string, set last letter end textlabel.Text = string:sub(1,i) --sets text to the placeholder textlabel wait(0.075) --waits so the script doesnt have a game script timeout and uh, works? end print(lastletter)
So thats basically how you use it for strings. I hope it's easy to understand.
