Coding help?

#1 Post by Lee_Hitsugaya » Wed Dec 05, 2007 8:16 pm

Ok guys, I need a bit of help with coding...

I'm making an intro for the 1st game and I want to fade the bg in. Now I know that 'dissolve' will work great, but I want to hide the text bar. How would I hide it then, later, bring it back?

Here is how it would work out....

[zoomed in image that slowly begins to zoom out to a point]
[during the zoom which must be timed, a monolouge begins to explain the story]
[at the end of the monolouge the 1st bg dissolves to the 2nd bg]
[2nd bg dissolves to a third, then the third bg scrolls left a bit and comes to a stop]
[captains log begins]
HOWEVER! 2 things must be done.

The monolouge must be timed, along with the zoom. So [monolouge part A: X seconds, ect]

second, WHEN THE NEW BG APPEARS THE TEXTBOX MUST DISSAPEAR FOR THE ENTIRETY OF THE SCENE untill the captains log.

Now i do NOT have the coding even STARTED so need major help. feel free to use random names to refer to certain images.
in a perfect world those who can do it teach others how to do it. but were not in a perfect world. So were primarily stuck with teachers who don't kno jack.
