Sprite Manager 2 set color
« on: January 13, 2012, 11:55:05 AM »
I am trying to interact with Sprite Manager 2 to fade a Packed Sprite.. I get how to interact with EZ Gui but not sure how to interact with SM2.

There are Animation Delegates but i dont want it to trigger on a Sprite event i just want to change the Alpha based on a PlayMaker event instead.

So i am sure it is simple but i am a bit lost. I know some people have interfaced these two products i think in the past. Maybe someone can give me a clue.

Thanks

Are you using all the SM2 actions that Jean wrote? I think he made a script for that very thing but I can't check right now. I use his SM2 actions all the time in the game I am doing.

Seems you got it sorted either way! :)

Hmmmm i looked before i started too.. Maybe it is there somewhere. I found an old link that was no good anymore. But i was sure the Jean or someone had done those as well.

Maybe i just reinvented the wheel then.

Right so found it right away of course now....

https://hutonggames.fogbugz.com/default.asp?W634

Now this is a great link but it is a hidden link instead of one that people can find by being on that site which i have been quite a bit.. unless i was not looking in the proper place.. Shouldn't it be a public link?

Thanks Jean... hehehee

Hi,

 The link is public and starts from the playmaker help page:

https://hutonggames.fogbugz.com/default.asp?W1

 at the bottom of the left menu, under the section "Community wiki" -> main index, then "custom actions and reference"

https://hutonggames.fogbugz.com/default.asp?W547


Bye,

 Jean

Ahhhhhhhhhhh I see it now. I did not know that section was there. I guess it did not jump out at me.

Thanks Jean!
