Title: Make the screen gradually darken
Post by: DarkMoe on 16 Jan 2018, 22:23
Hi ! What I was trying to do, is slowly making the screen darken.

I couldn't found anything like that, so for now, I did 20 different pre rendered backgrounds at different brightness levels, it's a horrible solution, and doesn't take care of the sprites in the room.

Any way to do this in a better way ?
Thansk !

I have heard that you can create a gui that covers the screen, make it all black, then adjust its transparency going from 100 down to 0.

Yes, that's how it's done. And if you use the Tween module, fading to black becomes a one-line command.
