I'm trying to figure out how to use timers in Win32 so that I can time certain events, such as fade-ins. I currently use a for(x,x,x) loop, but even though that works great on our old p1/200mmx, it is un-noticeable on the p3/500. I would like to time it to about 500ms intervals for the next shading. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time!
