Transitions for side images?

#1 Post by SundownKid » Mon Nov 11, 2013 9:39 pm

I'm looking for a way to add transitions to side images. For example, having a side image of a character fade out and in with a "dissolve" transition, and having a character image defined like this:

Code: Select all

define d = Character('Dude', color="#FFFFF", image="dude")
Be able to have a dissolve transition when mentioned like this:

Code: Select all

show dude normal at right with dissolve
d "Okay."
d happy "Hello there!"
As opposed to like this:

Code: Select all

show dude normal at right with dissolve
d "Okay."
show dude happy at right with dissolve
d "Hello there!"

I reckon you'd be able to use
d "Okay"
d happy "LOL WHAHAHAA" with dissolve
Reality, Bend
Synapse, Break
Banishment, This World!

I'm lost. Are you sure you're talking about side images? You're using linked images as side images instead of just using side images? Or you're talking about linked images and you also want side images to dissolve as well, even though you never included a side image in your examples, or...

Well, anyway, config.say_attribute_transition for linked, for side if you're using a showingswitch consider TransitionShowingSwitch unless you're using linked images in which case say_attribute_transition after all.
