I used to have a tutorial for this but at the moment can't find it,
however I was able to find the example movie I made for it. You
can download the SWF and FLA here:
You should be able to pick it apart pretty easily and take
what you need. If you have any troubles then email me OL and
I'll see what I can do :)
For those who download this file and want to do a little
homework, there is a slight bug, which if the movie is watched
long enough can become apparent, it has nothing to do with the
text fading in or out but with one of the other tweens. The
homework is to see if you can figure out what the bug is and
how to fix it. *G* Yes I do know how to fix it and the solution
is very simple, but I have been too busy and too lazy to do so,
besides I didn't think I'd need this file again. Have fun :)
Hint: it happens towards the very end of the animation just
before it disappears off screen (doesn't happend every time tho).
Reason it doesn't happend every time is that I am using randomly
generated numbers, tho this is not the reason for the bug.
