The solution may seem simple but it took me a while to figure it out so I thought I’d note it here using a blinking function. public IEnumerator animateTint(GameObject obj,Color newColour,float speed = 2){         Color originalColor = newColour;         Color targetColor = newColour;         Color defaultBtnColor = new Color();     ColorUtility.TryParseHtmlString (btnColor, out defaultBtnColor);     while (obj.GetComponent<Renderer> ().material.color != newColour) {         Material objMat = obj.GetComponent<Renderer> ().material;         Color curColour = objMat.color;         if(closeEnough(curColour.r,targetColor.r) && closeEnough(curColour.g,targetColor.g) && closeEnough(curColour.b,targetColor.b) ){             //objMat.color = newColour;             print (“change tint “+targetColor);             if(targetColor == newColour){                 targetColor = defaultBtnColor;             }else{ … Continue reading

Printed out the booklet. In total it’s 21 pages so to save paper I skipped the first page. It was just the intro and table of contents.What’s next: test out the booklet and the digital version.

I made a proper table of contents for the rule book as shown in the screenshot. Getting the line of dots also known as tab leaders was more complicated than I would have liked. I also added page numbers. I … Continue reading
