Default Add objects to screen during animation - 10-17-2010, 07:12 PM

I am trying to ask a user to input how many fish to add to the screen. After a user has inputed a number, how do I get that number of fish to appear? Do I need to make a certain number of fish beforehand and then have them become transparent? Kind of stuck.

Yes, that is exactly what you would have to do. As you would imagine, you have to create only a certain amount of fish, maybe 20 or so. You can create hundreds if you want, but it is unnecessary and time consuming, I would suggest a low number like 10 or 20 and tell the person what the max is.

Default Recalling fish - 10-17-2010, 10:23 PM

I am able to get my fish to disappear and then ask a user for a number but can not get that number of fish to reappear? What am I possibly doing wrong. I have my fish in a list that I am trying to recall only the user inputed amount back on the screen.

Try making a list of the fish, and then ask for the number. Now loop to that number, each time making the next fish in the list appear.
