I want to make a scene where there is a magic show, and the entire room darkens except for the magician up on the stage. Is there any way to tint the screen to be darker and leave a select circle or light in a specific place?

Use show picture with a picture that is mostly black and only transparent at those areas you still want to be visible.

Is there a picture like that in MV already or would I have to find one?

There are plugins for lighting effects that might do the trick. Otherwise, you'd have to create your own picture.

Just open up GIMP or Photoshop, make a new image at 816x624 size, transparent background, then fill it all with black. Then use the eraser tool on certain areas to get your image!

The player isn't but it would be possible to turn the player invisible underneath the event.
Good idea. That might be the best way.

I don't have Photoshop or GIMP so i'll get the plugin. I have one like it where it makes the screen pitch black except for the players light so this will help when its darker than day but not pitch black.

GIMP is free, but the plugin is probably better.

Paint.net is also a great alternative to Photoshop and it's free

That's true, but I use GIMP, which is free, all the time for my resources, and it works really well. (See my signature.)

I love it when a plan comes together, and especially when Ruby decides to work with me when I decide to code. :kaopride:
Got sick and had to take a few days off work in order to get tested and make sure it wasn't the big one. Felt a lot better today and thought to myself, "Hey now, I can't get tested until tomorrow anyway, I can get so much character art done today!"
....I watched Youtube and browsed this site for hours instead.
>.>
But at least I'm doing the art now! Yaaaaay.......

Didn't wanna spam the feed by posting Denzel's spritelayer separae, but I'm real happy with how this concept is coming along so wanted to share it, innit :D

Not sure how often you take time to play the games sent to you, but if you could give my game a shout & review on steam maybe that would be amazing, only if you like the game of course, I'd love to know which games have been your favorites over the years too.
I'm seeing my god daughter's school play next week. Being the mild agoraphobe I am this makes me nervous. Thus I had a dream that it was actually a plot by my best friend to take me clubbing at an establishment where it is customary to throw a harpoon at staff members to reward good service.
