make sure the textfield's variable is "text" with no upper case letters. if it is "text", then post a link to your fla.
Here's the fla
Here's an example: Pubished as player 8 you have to wait longer then for player 6 it types right away.
using device fonts causes your textfield's kerning to be set to 1 and that requires an html-enabled textfield. that means:
_parent.text=<p align="left"><font face="Arial_10pt_st" size="10" color="#282828" letterSpacing="0.000000" kerning="1"><b>Mugs</b></font></p>
which means you're not going to see Mugs typed until all that other stuff is "typed" and that causes the delay. your onEnterFrame handler must iterate past 100 before Mugs appears in the textfield.
to remedy, don't use a device font (and make sure auto kern is unchecked).
Thanks Alot for your help.
By any chance do you know how I could slow down the speed it is typed at?
you could use setInterval() instead of onEnterFrame() or you could use a toggle in your current loop to use every 2nd (or 3rd or 4th etc) loop to add to your textfied's text property.
