Changing Title Text
How to get it changed
Sadly, you can't do this yourself. Just ask a QAT to change it. They're the only ones that are able to, so just give them a note of what you need/want, and if it's reasonable enough, you'll get your new title text on your map! Easy, right?!
If used correctly, it can add a certain effect (in a good way!) to a map. It changes the presentation of your map in an effective manner if used correctly by changing the elements and the time of the appearance of the title. If you're a storyboarder, this might be a very huge benefit to you!
- An effective example would be Shiirn's Solar map
- You can split the title if it's too long for a single line: example, another one
Hand this to your favourite QAT.
- Syntax is as follows:
[firstOption:firstValue,secondOption:secondValue] and so on, so forth; notice there are no spaces around punctuation marks
- You can split title text into lines using the pipe character, |
- Text formatting can't be set for separate words or symbols. Instead, it applies to the whole line (see above). Formatting options should be in the very beginning of the line;
- Empty lines are allowed, but please mind the space. The standard font size is kind of big, and 3 or 4 lines can eat the whole screen space;
What can be changed?
Colour of the text
R, G and B are values between 0 and 255, separated by period. Also note it's "colour", a British English spelling of "color".
Time of appearance
Time in milliseconds from the beginning of audio when the title starts fading in. It is affected by a fade, which is 1/20th the hold time in ms
Time of hold
How long the text stays on the screen, including the fade in and out.
bold:1 or 0
1 means the line is bold, 0 — that it's regular.
Font size in points.
Default line for every freshly submitted/updated with no artist/title changes map is:
Default values, if not specified:
- time: previous line + 500
- bold: 1
- size: 40
- colour: 255.255.255
- hold: 6000
[time:672,size:30,colour:255.0.0,hold:1000]Line 1|[bold:0]Line 2
Line 1 will start fading in for 50 ms at 672, be a red color, and be midsized and bold, fading out to 0 at 1672. Line 2 will start fading in for 300 ms at 1172 and fade to 0 at 7172, be white, and large but not bold.
