This example file includes a method of creating simple screen transitions in you application, and can be called by simply toggling a Flag and setting a name. The benefit over MMF2s transitions is that this can be played while your application still runs, and can be called any time.
It has 3 transition Types: Ellipse, Rectangle, and Image. Also include a Fade effect that can be applied to all 3 types. The first two use the Overlays default shape drawing features. The 3rd (Image) uses a powerful method of loading external images which can be be color-customized, or made transparent.
This Widget is a Multi Widget. It uses 4 objects: 2 Overlays, 1 active, 1 INI. But there is a frame in the MFA that can do the basic transitions with just 1 Overlay. It depends on how you want to use it.
Includes an HTML documentation on how to use, a Transition Effects Studio EXE to create transitions easily, and well commented code.
Many examples are included in file. Just Read the HTML, then run the EXE to get a feel. There is more commented code in the MFA which explains the meat of how to apply it to your games. Its mostly just drag 'n' drop.
Just give credit if used. I also wouldn't mind knowing how you used it too.
