I thought the problem with functions in this case is they don't continually run. so where i want the layers to fade into one another, a function cant do that (am i wrong) because it just 'starts' to set the opacity of the layer, then stops after the first tick.
Hoping for some genius wisdom to cause a paradigm shift in my thinking tho. Ive tried functions and just couldnt get it working as i need here.
Wow, see you got some great stuff from the others
Yes, functions can continually run. As long as you give it a reason to run.
Call it everytick works or you can give it a reason to run
Just as example
run function = 1
if run fuction = 1
do this or that
run function = 0 x =99
or whatever floats your boat.
Remember every tick is reading your eventsheets from top to bottom and if a condition isn't met the function/code will run until that condition is met.
