You may want to learn to just skip it all together and just do it yourself so you can have more freedom. You can do it a number of ways--one of the easiest being make a private variable on the object you want to fade.
If Object.Variable = 1 ----> set opacity to Object.Opacity+200*dt
and Object.Opacity < 100
(you can change the 200 to whatever you want).
Then to fade out just set the variable to 0 and do:
If Object.Variable = 0 ----> set opacity to Object.Opacity-200*dt
and Object.Opacity > 0
So I do like the two Tween plugins, but for simple fades just do it that way and save yourself the overhead. A single event for either direction takes care of everything.
