Hey guys! I created this for a game I’m currently working on, and since I haven’t released an open-source product in a while I figured I might as well open source it!
Hintify is an easy-to-use, quick solution to putting mouse hints into your game. It’s actually made up of three distinct systems which can be used independently - check them out below:
A position-based hint which auto-scales to fit any length of text. Additional customization options for font, font color, and text size.
The simplest of the three, this system is ideal for displaying longer text or paragraphs on the screen. See the “README” script for setup instructions.
These are super easy to set up, just insert a StringValue called “TooltipDescription” into any GUI object and you’re good to go! One benefit of this system is that the GUI object can be parented to any ScreenGUI and still be picked up by the system. You also won’t have to worry about GUI objects that are visible but their ScreenGUI is disabled - the system has a custom check for that too.
All setup instructions can be found in a “README” script or in the actual LocalScript as in the case of the GUI Tooltips.

I also put together an uncopylocked demo place!
