Okay, so I've got a question for anybody with decent scripting experience. Is it possible, using a script, to have the camera view fade to black before you enter a teleporter, then fade back after teleportation? I'm working on a map where entering a door will teleport you somewhere else, but without a proper fade effect it just doesn't look right. And, as stated in the title, this is for multiplayer. Thanks in advance. :)

Honestly, I don't know. There's a SET(SET_TYPES) variable for that. You might try using that. If not, I really have no idea.
Hmm, there was an option for fading in and out videos but not the actual game image. I have discovered that there are options to fade out from camera views, but not the game camera as far as I can tell so far.
maybe some sorta shader work? not sure if that helps but you might look into it.
I've been trying that by modifying the spawn effect. I have it set up where it should fade in when you spawn/teleport, but the effect just remains completely opaque until the effect runs up and dissapears. I haven't been able to figure out if it's a problem in the effect or the shader. Any help in that regard would be appreciated.
Hmmm, as soon as I get the copy I ordered of Jka ill start testing some ideas I have, and post em up here if i get it working again. I remember I changed some of the telportation stuff before such as the green flash to a blue beam, and you had a sparkle effect on you for a few secounds after words. Also I just thought of this before I go, you might want to look at the effect trigger hurt uses when its set to a -1 value it has a fade to blkack effect, im sure you could some how script it so when the player walks through it playes that effect then create i guess the reverse of that effect and have it play when they are finished being teleported.
I forgot about the fade effect when you fell in a pit, so I'll look at that and try to figure something out. Thanks for the heads-up. :)
Not a prob, its what im here for :)
I didn't make it!
Wow, Angelmapper! How did you release the first Arrevanous for JKA without the game?

wait what? and on the topic of fading to black look around through the Assets and look at the effect for the Pitfall like thing when you fall to your death and it fades to black i cant remeber what its called
