You know when a boss is nearly dead, and its represented by them flashing a color.

Anyone know a way that this is possible within MMF2?

Newbish advice:
well if he's not many colours, replace colours? (although for me this usually slows a game down)

Or just have one of your animations as him blinking.

personally, Id just clone the boss active and replace all the colours with like red for example, have the red sprite aligned with the actual sprite and make the red version flash when required? that way you can also sync up the animations and flash at the same time, instead of having him only flash on a certain animation... if that makes any sense

the last option then? Just clone it, make the sprite in every frame red, and

Always set animations of red sprite to those of regular? Surely that would work?

make a separate animation for when it gets hit. And have that animation flash.

Its a permanant flash, not just when they get hit.

Why can't Clickteam just do a nice simple pallette swap feature

The problem is, its not quick. A good idea yes, but far too much work when considering the boss i'm doing is made from multiple actives, the flashing won't all flash at the same time as the speed of the animation will mess things up.

The replace color feature would work, but is a poorly executed feature, doesn't even allow you to pick a color from the active the event is about, you sort of have to guess from 16 million + colors.

It is quick. Using the filled-rectangle tool. set it to your desired colour at the opacity of 99, drag it over the sprite twice BAM red.

is there any extension that can retrieve the color from a position on an object? I know overlays can do this with the image on them...

Maybe Liji's colourizer extension will help you? I can't remember what it's used for though...

Maybe you just have to wait for people to start making custom ink effects for MMF2...
...is there an ink effect SDK yet? Or was there plans for one?

That, or you could perhaps actually use the built in MMF2 palette swap feature.
