[SOLVED] Longer transition between screens

#1 Post by chesarty » Fri Oct 16, 2020 7:57 am

Hey there! Is there a way to make the shift/transition between main menu screens longer? I don't want it to immediately dissolve to the next screen, and would prefer it with a fade to black and then to the next screen, if that's doable. :oops:

There are a few configuration variables that control which transitions are used when changing screens or menus, you can check them out here.
So in your options.rpy file in your project folder, you can find the config.intra_transition variable, and change the default dissolve transition for the one you want. In this case you could use the Fade transition:

Code: Select all

define config.intra_transition = Fade(0.5, 1.0, 0.5)
The most important words a man can say are, “I will do better.”

Oh, thank you! I had no idea the options had a setting for that.
