Anybody need a text entry script and or scrolling compass (text based-- like Fortnite)?

Or did I miss someone already had made them? Anyhow let me know. You can enter
text like a password, copy a note, etc. What I have is just a template at the moment.
Maybe with more work, I could make it look like a working keyboard?? I just like to know
if anyone has a need for it, and then I post it.

I'll check them out.

I have the radar script with the !nullptr code, but I am interested in your take on a scrolling radar and i'm sure others will be to.

Thanks

To be honest, the radar text method I think now in hindsight would be possible to make with
a sprite and look a LOT better- as well require a lot less fiddling with text to screen position
numbers! Also with different graphics resolutions- it just might break down altogether- I cannot
test that on my Television.

Also the text input is fidgety-- I made a much better script a couple years ago, including cursor,
Back-Space feature, colors, etc but haven't dug it out - wherever it might be. You will just have to
be careful entering text with this one- I have no plans to add them in this version.

This one was done from scratch- but it will allow you to enter some text and use it in the manner
you want. The input is just a little dodgy, for some reason on my system the 'e' doesn't work, and
pressing two buttons simultaneously doesn't work either- though again in the past I have used that
with success... So there's a 'work- around' feature for the Shift Keys- don't hold them down,
just press once and quickly type your Shifted character.

If your 'e' character works, please let me know- it must be my system or something....?

multiple inputs only work for the g_KeyPress commands
g_Scancode and g_Inkey are single key presses only
