Alpha Transparency

The Alpha Transparency in Game Maker is the visibility or "fadedness" of text or sprites. The level of Alpha Transparency can be changed using the draw_set_alpha (for text) or image_alpha(for sprites) functions.

For example:


This would make the text draw very transparent.

This function can be used in a step event to create a fading text or sprite.

An Example (In Step Event requiring variable "textfade to be set to 1 in create event":

textfade=textfade - .01
