drawdistanceThe distance from where players are able to see the chat bubble.
expiretimeThe time in miliseconds the bubble should be displayed for.

Return Values:

This function does not return any specific values.



You can't see your own chatbubbles. The same applies to attached 3D text labels.

Example Usage:

public OnPlayerText(playerid, text[])
    SetPlayerChatBubble(playerid, text, 0xFF0000FF, 100.0, 10000);
    return 1;



  • You can use color embedding for multiple colors in the message.
  • Using '-1' as the color will make the text white (for the simple reason that -1, when represented in hexadecimal notation, is 0xFFFFFFFF).
