Character text bubbles
How do I make the little text bubbles for npcs we don't interact with.

You're looking for the "Popup dialog" button. You can set the costume to that of a non-interactable NPC and have them communicate that way.

Or are you asking for these little NPC chatter speech bubbles?

They are activated if you select an NPC, go to the behavior tab und check "Enable chat".

For NPC groups, you enable chat

For individual NPCs, you add text to them. To do this:
  • Select individually-placed Actor on a Map
  • Look at the bottom-middle panel.
  • Scroll down that panel
  • Find box to insert dialogue
