Title: Making Screen Flash Red/Editting alpha settings on GUI/Ecosystem help[SOLVED]
Post by: TheNecron on July 11, 2019, 07:59:53 PM
Hello, I've been creating a game and seem to have issue generating a red screen flash effect over the screen on hit. I can globally transition the event of the player being hit to the gui element that i have (a red no material/source image stretched to fit in anchor menu). I want to be able to set the alpha for the gui element to 30, and then back to 0 after a delay, however none of the playmaker options seem to work for this task, including "set gui color" with the color set to the same color on the gui element but higher/lower alpha (does nothing) and "set gui alpha" with the alpha set to 1,0, 255, and global tag on and off (also does nothing). someone suggested that i use "u gui canvas group set alpha" but i was unable to find this with a search on ecosystem (no results, searching all). Any suggestions or explanations on how to accomplish this would be appreciated.

Hi,

 this action is part of the official set within PlayMaker. search actions for alpha, the action is named UiCanvasGroupSetAlpha

 Bye,
