Cursor

  • #1, by dramaminiWednesday, 24. September 2014, 02:43 6 years ago
    Hi!
    When I change scene with "Fade to new scene" effect or "Shift Left / Right" effect, cursor disapears, freezes or moves along with the fade effect.
    How can I set the cursor free and visible over the fade effect?

    Inventory also moves along with "Shift Left / Right" fade effect...

    Hi,
    the 'fade in/fade out' effects do not show the cursor because the scene is still active (animations running) but there is not interaction possible. The other fade effects (shift left/right etc.) create an in-game screenshot and of the scenes and apply the effect on the screenshots. If you don't want the interfaces to appear during the fade effect you can hide it before changing to the new scene. Add a 'pause 1msec' action part after hiding the interface & before changing the scene because otherwise the screen is not redrawn before the scene is fading.

    Nice! Inventory is not moving now. Thank you!
    As for the cursor, I don't need to be interactive, only visible and free to move

    When interaction is not possible, the cursor is automatically hidden. I suppose an alternative option to have the cursor stay visible but go semi-transparent or only show inactive cursor & prevent clicking would be nice, like in Broken Sword 5. But I don't know if the devs would be willing to waste time adding such a small feature...

    I will add it to our task list app thing.

    That's what I mean!
    No, it's not a small feature!! smile smile
    Especialy for "fade to new scene effect" (no for fade out/ fade in) & for shift effects.
    I'ts a liiiittle bit antiaesthetic when cursor freezes or moves along shift effects.

    Generaly, thank you very much guys for answering and helping me.
    Visionaire is a great program...

    Oh! As for the fade to new scene effect, I tried this and works fine:

    Added a new object named "NextScene" ( + the image of the next scene)
    At begining of scene set object Visibility "NextScene" 0%

    At hotspot that changes scene, at Left Click action added these:
    Set "Next Scene" Object visibility 100% - Delay 600ms
    Pause for 600ms
    Change Scene [Immediately]

    Sure you could do that. But that won't prevent the user from interacting with stuff on the scene especially if they click on something with an execute command (immediate) but I guess they don't get long to move mouse & click on anything else anyway. smile
