#5118797 Creating a Flashing Effect

Posted by on 22 December 2013 - 08:21 PM

Ah, yes silly me. It turned out the path name for the image was being read in as "" as opposed to a string that wasn't empty. 'Twas a silly mistake in the Lua file where I read in the path for the image.


Thanks a ton though! 

#5118665 Creating a Flashing Effect

My problem really lies with the whole displaying for a brief period of time part of it. I have an image I can blit to the screen, and I've also considered just using the RenderFillRect() function.


Basically, how do I just have the image briefly flash on the screen then disappear? I'm for some reason drawing a total blank on how to do this, but it can't be a difficult task can it? >.<


Help would be appreciated because I just can't think straight right now.
