I have some title cards made up for chapter breaks and the like. So what I want to do black out the screen (that bit works then show this card:
Then I want a 5 second pause before showing a second card:
And another 5 second pause.
The problem I'm finding is that if I click past the first pause, the second card never shows. And if I wait the full five seconds, the second card does appear, but only for a split second before disappearing.
I've tried a few variations on the theme. I can put both captions onto the one card, which works fine but it's not as funny that way.
I tried showing the images individually and when that didn't work I tried using an ATL animate like the one from the tutorial. Here's the relevant code:
Code: Select all
init: image card space1 = "card_space1.png" image card space2 = "card_space2.png" image card space_anim: "card space1" pause 5 "card space2" pause 5 label off_to_meet_vinny: scene dark with dissolve show card space_anim at truecenter with dissolve pause 5 scene bg spacepod with dissolve
It also works just fine if I show the images separately, rather than in the ATL block, and if I use a pause without a parameter. It's as if the timeout flag from the first pause is still set when the second one starts...
