What is the script that fades the current page your looking at through a color to a new page.  Example your looking at a page then it fades to black and a new page appears.

Hi...

This was quick NCAA on in a few min...

The script is basically below...

Easy to hack around w/, as you're just playing w/ a couple of arrays to generate the "#xxxxxx" hex colors...

Best, Tom
