Is it possible to change the frame image via VBScript?

Postby CBSection31 » Sat Oct 24, 2009 3:57 am

Hi everyone,

Is there some way of doing the following?

Code: Select all
If variable=1 then change frame image to "image.jpg"


I don't want to change a hotspot image, and placing a hotspot over the entire frame and setting it to only appear when a variable=1 will not work in this situation. I need to be able to change the frame image itself...assuming it is possible!

Thanks! :)

Oh, that's very cool!

So, one would just create a variable and corresponding hotspot to trigger (say) the onset of night, place any alternate frame images into the External folder, and then add the following code to the Frame Properties > Advanced Tab for every affected frame?

Code: Select all
If my_variable = 1 then
BackgroundObject.Picture = LoadPicture(GetPath(2) & "/my_alternate_frame_image.jpg")


I was trying to figure out how to do that in the template that I made for my game, but settled for every scene being at dusk. I want to go try this. :P
