    Hello

    Is there any way to show a picture inside of the message box in Essentials? This topic was addressed before (the topic's title is: '[Question] Pictures on the message box'), but nobody posted a solution. By default, the 'display image' option in the events editor displays the image under the messagebox, and not above it.

    It doesn't matter if the text doesn't automatically wrap around the image; I'd just add the line breaks manually.

    I'm totally lost, so any tips to help me get started on this would be very welcome ; Thanks a lot in advance!

    Not sure if this will work properly but you can always display an icon using <icon=X> where X would be the icon located in "Graphics/Icons"

      It will work properly, exactly as you described. There's an example of showing an in-line image in a text message in the example maps.

        Thanks for the quick answers! I must apologize, because I still have problems with the language and I didn't explain myself properly.

        What I want is to show an image in a fixed position; overlapping the message box, but not linked to the text, so the icon command doesn't work for me.

        I want the image to be any size I want and in any position I want, just like in those games that show the face of the character inside of the textbox and not outside of it.

        Edit (Nov-6-2012): well, seeing that there is no answer, I'll edit with the 'solution' I've found, just in case somebody has the same problem as me. Instead of displaying the textbox, I temporarily disable the textbox and display a static image that looks exactly like it. This way I can add images on top, because the textbox is actually an image like any other. It's tiresome to do this in every event that needs a 'face', but it looks OK.

        Edit (Nov-7-2012): Another option: leaving a part of the textbox transparent and fitting the image exactly inside of that hole.
