As long as you control Zak, fades are fine. But as soon
as you switch to another person, there are no more
fades, including controlling Zak again. All scenes then
appear instantly.

What happens: when a "Switch" is done, apparently
o5_oldRoomEffect() gets called, setting
_switchRoomEffect to 4 and _switchRoomEffect2 to 0.

But there is no fadein effect 4 (only 1, 2, 3), nor a
fadeOut 0 (0 for fadeOut will not do any fading to be

So I looked at how to fix this. It turns out, adding fade
mode 4 is trivial, we already have the data table needed
for it, we just weren't using it! This is fixed now in CVS.

However, fades still will look weird, because the
fadeOut mode is set to 0, which means no fadeout
happens, which in turn results in a bad looking fade
(palette clashes...). I am not sure if there is ever code
that legall sets fadeOut to 0, maybe we just should
check for a 0 here and convert it to a 1? But that might
break other games. Oh well...

I'm going to close this, if the main problem is fixed.
