Darkened Room Flashlight Effect?

Welcome to our brand new Clickteam Community Hub! We hope you will enjoy using the new features, which we will be further expanding in the coming months.

A few features including Passport are unavailable initially whilst we monitor stability of the new platform, we hope to bring these online very soon. Small issues will crop up following the import from our old system, including some message formatting, translation accuracy and other things.

Thank you for your patience whilst we've worked on this and we look forward to more exciting community developments soon!

  • How do you do the whole 'Black/Dark Room, but you can see where the flashlight points' effect, with a beam drawn to the flashlight, anyways? Or is this not possible in MMF2?

  • Please login to see this link.
    Check this out and then manipulate it to your needs. I think the best way to learn something you don't know is to find an example of something nearly what you want and then tweak it just a little to get exactly what you want! That's how I got inventories to work in my game.

  • Don't use large Actives and such work arrounds.

    All you need is:

    • create new layer above in Frame Editor
    • create Quick backdrop on this new layer, resize it to whole frame size and color it white (255,255,255)
    • create a black (0,0,0) Active for the "hole in the layer" (use grey values for less transparency)
    • change effect of layer to Subtract

    Now you'll see just the part under this layer where the non-white objects in the new layer are.

    Note: To use layer effects you have to choose Display Mode Direct3D 8 or 9 in the application properties.
