Summary

DisplayEffect is an interface for toying with the display.

Instances

SuperTux creates an instance named Effect when starting the scripting engine. Its usage is preferred – creating another instance might have unexpected side effects and is strongly discouraged. (Use sector.Effect in the console.)

Methods

fade_out(float fadetime) Gradually fades out the screen to black for the next fadetime seconds.
fade_in(float fadetime) Gradually fades in the screen from black for the next fadetime seconds.
set_black(bool black) Blackens or un-blackens the screen (depending on the value of black).
is_black() Returns: bool; has the screen been blackened by set_black?
Note: Calling fade_in or fade_out resets the return value to false.
sixteen_to_nine(float fadetime) Sets the display ratio to 16:9, effectively adding black bars at the top and bottom of the screen. Should be used before cutscenes. Gradually fades to this state for the next fadetime seconds.
four_to_three(float fadetime) Sets the display ratio to 4:3, removing the black bars added by sixteen_to_nine(). Should be used after cutscenes. Gradually fades to this state for the next fadetime seconds.

Constants
