Well howdy

First post here.. looked all over how to adjust alpha channel on al_draw_text/al_draw_textf to make text fade to fully transparent.. Wondering if anyone knows how to adjust alpha on ALLEGRO_FONT

Preciate it

Just decrease the alpha value in al_map_rgba over time to fade to fully transparent when drawing with al_draw_text.

Or maybe even al_premul_rgba if you want to fade colored text.
