I'm a complete noob to programming and I've been using gamemaker for less than a week now. So far, I have figured out character movement, basic enemy AI, room changes, level design and sprite animations. I can confidently say that my first game is taking shape pretty well. However, for the last 2 days, I've been trying to create a simple fade transition as I change rooms and this has got to be the most difficult thing to achieve. How can such a simple thing be so difficult!? All I need is to have the room fade in from black when it starts. Can I PLEASE get step by step instructions and the code that I can simply copy paste into my project?
