ok the idea is to allow something like

print <x>,<y>,<screen/level>,<font>,<size>,<text>

x = x position on the screen or level (will explain about that later)
y = y position on the screen or level (will explain about that later)
screen/level = like if you want it on the screen (like the hearts) or if you want it on the level.
if you want it on the screen you would set that part to 0
if you wanted it on the level you would set it to 1..
text = the text you want to put up there
font = just what it looks like (and if they dont have that font set it to something like arial)
size = the font size

ok here would be an example

print 100,100,0,arial,10,this is a test.;

that would print it on to the screen so if the player moves around it moves with him... (on that level)

then like for one on the level would be like

print 15,15,1,arial,10,this is a test.;

and that would print it on the level (so if the player moves it doesn't move with him like most npcs...)


I dunno what you guys think of it but I think it would be a cool command to add
(then for things like time that prints on the screen you could use this insted of cordnating all the positions of the images for the time)...

well tell me what you guys think...
