FadeCamera

From Multi Theft Auto: Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This function will fade a player's camera to a color or back to normal over a specified time period. This will also affect the sound volume for the player (50% faded = 50% volume, full fade = no sound). For clientside scripts you can perform 2 fade ins or fade outs in a row, but for serverside scripts you must use one then the other.

Server example

When a player gets damaged, place a quick fade-to-red effect on his screen.

function addRednessOnDamage ( )
      fadeCamera ( source, false, 1.0, 255, 0, 0 )         -- fade the player's camera to red over a period of 1 second
      setTimer ( fadeCameraDelayed, 500, 1, source )   -- don't let it go to opaque red, interrupt it after half a second and fade back to normal
end
addEventHandler ( "onPlayerDamage", root, addRednessOnDamage )

function fadeCameraDelayed(player) -- This function prevents debug warnings when the player disconnects while the timer is running.
      if (isElement(player)) then
            fadeCamera(player, true, 0.5)
      end
end
