here is a mockup of a more cinematic-like credits
it's already confirmed by miu and tyreth :)
it should work like this:
first there needs to be a button for the credits added
in the main menu. when clicking on it, the
background(only the bg, not the logo or menu) should
darken slowly. i simply added a black layer with an
opacity of 50% in my sketch, while the top and bottom
bar and also the menu are masked out. i can provide the
mask, if you will do it the same way.
at the same time the credits slowly blend in(so that
the first line is approximately in the middle) and
everything scrolls upwards slowly.
note, that the text is 'colored' with the following
#ffffff - real name and ' - '
#999999 - nick name
#cccccc - task
i don't know how you are going to solve this. maybe
with additional tags in the credits file.
for further questions you can contact me via the
forums, irc or email(epost AT optisch-edel DOT de)
