Is it possible to do a fade in / fade out in the same mission, i see in the manual it talks about StartLevelFade but... that's just for fading in a new level is it not?

... anyone know about this? sorry again... nothing in the manual about fade out in track sequencer, and i've looked at both scene and camera events... it's in neither.

There`s no native support.
But you can make it by little coding.
From cut-scene editor you can trigger mission event (They are just lua functions)
You should also mod Hud, and add function that will fade in/out full screen image, (Systemhttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gifrawImage)
Then by sending mission events, and calling new hud functions from mission script you can get this effect

man... that is some dirty filthy hack! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif lol... i love it!

Thanks a million,

Harry...

ps... although, the whole LUA scripting thing is a little daunting at present... is it likely that CryTek will release a more comprehensive guide to the possibilites of the scripting and a decent couple of tutorials on it's different implementaions?

There will be a description of all lua to cryengine interface, sometime later.

But anyway good knowledge of Lua is very essential, although it looks easy at first, it is a full programming language, and indeed needs good coding skills to use it effectivly.
