Fancy text message methods.

So far, my SENT has been communicating via text messages using ply:PrintMessage( 4, “Some Text” ). It works, but looks rough. What’s a better-looking way of giving the player text? Any suggestions?

You could always try using Derma with a panel that slides into the screen and back out using the animation function. Or get fancy using 3D2D and have the message show up above the SEnt.

Can you give a simple example? On the wiki, it shows it in the context of animating a flash, but how would you apply that to changing the position of a derma panel?
