Great. I can always use help with testing. I'll set up a private demo with some dummy rooms tomorrow.

Here is another progress report. This fixes some tricky issues. One of which had been bothering me for years, so I'm quite excited. This also fixes almost all of the issues Heartless was able to find.

I'll see about adding in some completely new features next week to break up this string of converting and recoding.

Code: [Select]
0.17.72 Studio (27 juli 2015)
* Fixed graphical issue during fileselect (on some machines)
* Fixed error messages experienced with a certain hitswitch

0.17.73 Studio (1 augustus 2015)
* Tweaked pause mechanics and GUI drawing
* Restored the warping sequence by rebuilding it from scratch

0.17.74 Studio (2 augustus 2015)
* YES!! Finally managed to fix a long running issue with transparant tiling not displaying correctly
if handled by surfaces in (for instance) transition effects. Appearently the blending mode bm_normal can't handle such situations and I needed to switch over to a custom blend mode without actual blending. Go figure.
* Did some more work on the pause scripting
* Redid all uses of overhead shadows (now created via tiling rather then scripting)

Another update. The shock effect is now live again. With this done there is only a hand full of old action objects left to convert to Studio. After that the two largest remaining pieces of the engine to convert will be the character and enemy scripting.

Code: [Select]
0.17.78 Studio (16 augustus 2015)
* Added coding to allow terrain driven movement while getting shocked
* Started redoing getting electricly shocked (the screen redraw function does not work so I'm trying out working with multible views)

0.17.79 Studio (22 augustus 2015)
* Finished work on the shock screen effect
* Fixed some small issues on the background tilesets
* Fixed conveyor belts / water moving faster while getting shocked
* Removed some more old obselete resources

0.17.80 Studio (23 augustus 2015)
* Redid another of the old action objects: Text objects
* Made progress on icecave tileset and overworld tiling

0.17.82 Studio (29 augustus 2015)

I plan to add the option to the engine as well, yes. First I'll integrate the previous darkness engine with this new day-night time set-up. I find blending mechanics a little difficult so I'm not yet sure how long this process will take me.

I am curious if you are interested in a more "vibrant" day/night system.  I wrote my own that functions nicely and provides a more "realistic" approach to day and night colors.

It's still just a color overlay similar to most systems.  However, my system actually uses RGB values that change. 
As the day closes, my engine uses an orange into red, then as it becomes night, the red turns into a dull but dark purple, then it fades into a gray color to simulate a morning fog. 

I don't have it 100%.  Everything cycles as it should.  It runs off a simple script that continues to flow unless the game is paused or if the player enters and area other than the Overworld.  The issue is coming out of night into morning.  It happens somewhat abruptly, but could be remedied with the actual fog overlays from Link to the Past when you are in the Lost Woods.

Just tossing the offer out there.

Whether that's something for HoB or not, it'd be a great little snippet for any game, really. Could you make it so it's basically a plugin for any project? I'm sure there are plenty of people who would love to use it for their projects.

I was talking to my friend last night, and he was mentioning about how in 1980, he thought the internet would become this amazing place where people from across the world would share ideas. I was telling him about how this project [KOT] has worked, lurching along for years and drawn by different people from across the globe, and he thought it was beautiful. And he was right, it's awesome. :D

Sure, I'll take a look. Getting the cycle to run smoothly is challenging so I'd appreciate to also see a different take on it.

I'll upload my own results in a bit as well.

Attached are the two scripts I wrote.  I didn't really comment anything as it should be easy to follow and there isn't too much there.  They could be optimized more if needed.
 The numbers in the timer script deal with how long you want the day to go.  It's just based on per-step.
 The other script deals with variables that are Red Green Blue values.  If you want to change the color, you either need to know the 255 spectrum or open up your favorite image editor and find a color you want to find the RGB values.

Don't forget these globals to initiate before the object:
global.In_overworld = true;
global.Time_of_day = "day";
global.Time = 1200;

In order to use the scripts, I have a single persistent object created in the first room of my projects(I have used this day/night system in 4 on going Zelda projects of mine).

objDayNightController
CREATE EVENT
Code: [Select]
color = 0;
colorR = 0;
colorB = 0;
colorG = 0;
image_alpha = 0;
STEP EVENT
Code: [Select]
if (global.paused == false)
{
    x = view_xview;y = view_yview;
    scrDayNightTimer();
    if (instance_exists(objHUDcontroller))
    {
        depth = objHUDcontroller.depth + 1;//objHUDcontroller is always at the closest depth, so we want the overlay to be drawn under it
    }
}
DRAW EVENT
Code: [Select]
scrDrawDayNight();

If you want to see it in action in a project I have been working on, you can mess with my Zelda II project.  It'll take some time, but just move around and such and after some time, you'll see the transition.

As I said, coming out of morning needs some work.
