Action for letterbox color change

I suggest an action for the event sheet that will let users dynamically change the color of the letterbox to match their game, layout, or mood etc. Some examples include:

  • A grassy outdoor layout can have a green letterbox

  • An interior layout can have a dark letterbox

  • A sunset scene can have the letterbox change every few seconds to match the in-game sunset colors (blue to orange to purple, etc)

Right now my solution is to create a style sheet for every different letterbox color with an “!important” override on tge html and body tag. And call on that style sheet when needed. It’s cumbersome and frankly I don’t even know if it works on mobile.

    You don't have to create style sheets, you can use the browser object with the set CSS action to change the body or any other element.
