Just a simple vignette fade effect (like on loony tunes cartoons, that circular fade in/out).

Use X to open the vignette, Z to close it.
Arrow keys move the smiley face.

Can also be used to create a fake flashlight effect.

The code is very simple and commented, so it can be easily modified/repurposed.
The vignette works with a sprite that you can customize (to create other shapes).
Mine uses 4 sprite slots on the sprite sheet, but you could easily make it work with only one if you really need to save sprites. Just remember to also customize the draw_vignette function to make it work with different sized sprites.

Hey! Thanks for this, was just going to do something similar, this works great! :)

Working on cleaning up an old game, so this makes it a lot nicer :)

That is true, @merwok. It was indeed an interest back then most of us participated in the conversation.

I did some work along this line 3-years ago, @profpatonildo, just using the circ() command.
