How to screen fade

For questions about using Classic.

Post » Wed Jul 07, 2010 7:05 am

Hi
I am trying to get a loading screen to fade in from black, to show the screen, then fade to black again, over the space of 3-4 seconds. I can't see a way of affecting rgb values, so I've been playing with the opacity. Problem is, I'm struggling with using simple while loops.

What I want is something like:

Set fadecnt = 0
While fadcnt < 100
set screen opacity to fadecnt
wait for 200ms
set fadecnt = fadecnt+10
/* then go to fade out routine, decrementing opacity*/

Can I get his to work? Can I 'eckers like :roll:

Any help you guys can provide will be greatly appreciated.

Martin

Wut?

There's a fade behavior, and Gradient object. Both have timers for fading.
