Hello all,
Is there an easy way to create fading text animation with the text commands? I'm using fontmachine at the moment...

Just change the alpha value over time.

Psudo code.
SetAlpha(FadeValue) '0-1

Goodness I didn't think it was that simple I was looking for arguments in the font stuff.

Thanks !

It's something Ziggy could probably easily add to the FontMachine module you should suggest it to him.

The BlitzMax version of the FontMachine module has sort of per-layer and per-character render actions that can be plugged in into a font to deform the drawing, add fadings, etc. I may add this to FontMachine too, as it is quite easy to do.
