I will try to do this text display with every single word (not including numbers, I said words).

Basically, it will be like a combination of variables and lasers to make a display, I'll name every single "Pixel" of the monitor in the game (70) and if you press "A" it will activate, I don't know, 6 lasers that writes something, if you press shift it cleans, and if you press "B" it will activate 6 more and you know...

Need help to: (give credit)
How to make a block display a color when a variable is changed.

Why is the prbolem:

The "B" boxes and lasers changes te value of scene.my.varb from white to black, but if i reset the "B" the "A" will won't display because there are 2 variables in colorhsva, so I want that when u change the variable the word display.

I'am from argentina, so don't expect me to speak english perfect;)

It only works with the letter "A". Is it supposed to work with other letters?
No, Xray, I will do it will more letters when i update, i just uploaded the idea
UPDATE: "B" is now avalible, but "A" does not display correctly.

If you know how to fix that xray please help, Thanks.
I'll check it out and see what I can do with it.

By the way, don't worry about your English not being perfect. There are many people who live here in the U.S. who speak and write very poor English!
I see your latest update, and it clearly is not the best way to do this scene because you will need 52 of those laser arrays that you have made!:o There are much better and more efficient ways to do it.

Your first starting point should be to determine how each letter of the alphabet should be configured. There are common configurations for dot-matrix displays of alphabet letters, and the more common ones are 5 by 7 and 6 by nine. That is, 5 dots horizontal and 7 dots vertical. Get yourself a sheet of graph paper, and make a dot matrix display for each letter using the common number of dots of 5 wide by 7 high. Once you've made all 26 letters, you can then code the matrix into an array.

This is just one way to do it, and there are other ways that might be better. Take a look at how others have made similar scenes to get some ideas about how you can do this one.

Take a look at this one: 5X5 Display
It works with only the letter A, but it should not be too difficult to add all the other letters.
