"You Died" Screen


Basically when my player dies i want the whole screen to go red WITHOUT changing rooms. I have a variable called dead and when the player dies it switches over to true. In the draw even can i do anything to make the effect? Or what would be the best way to have the effect in your opinion? I dont know if room changing is better or something else.

deactivate all other instances, then in the draw event set up the screen drawing code and the buttons like: "Retry" and "Quit to menu". Or create instances for the buttons if you want.

I also take a screen from the moment the player dies and draw that behind a slowly shrinking black circle until only the player is still visible and then I have the button code activated.
