Two things

1: Is there a way I can make the screen go blank and display a message for a number of seconds and then have it return to what it was before it went blank?

2: If I have two subtasks (task A & B) in an event which is executed at the same time, will they be executed in the order I've made them? Meaning that subevent A will be executed before subevent B

Hi PoP,

1: Simples, see attached demo.

2: (Christmas Eve:) Seeing as the boffins are busy celebrating Christmas and only sad people like me are still messing about with ADRIFT, I did some experimenting, so see demo "Task Order".

In any event, the tasks will be executed in the order they appear in the sub-events list. In event XMAS tasks A & B are in order, but in event NOEL they have been reversed.

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!!!

Sorry to hijack this one.
But can you do the same with an image?
As opposed to text.
To bring up a map, maybe?
Thank you...
