Hey guys - hate having my first post on a forum being one asking for help, but I've been butting my head against a wall for hours trying to work out why something isn't working.
What I am attempting to do is have text appear when the player is overlapping with an object and they press the "x" button. The text is supposed to stay there, and once the player no longer overlaps the object, the text should fade out. This action should be repeatable each time the player overlaps the object (ie they leave that area and come back and press "x" again, it should re-appear, and then fade when they no longer overlap).
Anyway, I can manage to make the text remain when "x" is pressed and they overlap the object, and then using "text>make invisible" I can turn it off when they no longer overlap. But when I change to "text>fade:start", the text immediatley begins fading when "x" is pressed and the player still overlaps the object.
I'll post my current .cap and hopefully someone can figure out what's going on. The most frustrating thing is that I managed to make the fade work properly with an image in another place, yet it doesn't work this time.
Oh, to those looking, the "S" box is the item to overlap and press "X" to see the text. Text3 is the text object related to it which I cannot get to fade when not overlapping. "Shift" is the jump button as well.
Here is the .cap: http://willhostforfood.com/?Action=down ... leid=71924
The version of Construct I'm using is one of the 0.98.x versions, by the way, but the same thing happens in 0.99.3.
Thank you all.
