Set Instance Colour


Description

This action block sets the image_blend colour for "blending" with the instance sprite. The default value is -1 (which represents the colour white) and this will draw the sprite using no blending. Any other value (including internal colour constants like c_red, or c_aqua) will blend the specified colour with the original sprite. Please note that for changes in this action to be visible, the instance should have either no draw event (and so GameMaker Studio 2 will default draw the sprite) or be drawn using Draw Self action. It is important to note too that you should try to limit blending on the Windows 8 (JavaScript) or HTML5 platforms (unless using WebGL), as each blended sprite has to be cached separately and so having many blended sprites may adversely affect performance.
