Alpha 0 = ... black?

  • Is alpha and all colors 0 supposed to come out black? Why not transparent like C2?

  • yep that dont look right

  • I thought they addressed this in an earlier release. It may be related to the fact that on Chrome for me alpha 1 looks like alpha 32 or so, so it's impossible to get smooth lighting effects and it VGAs up all the colors.

    Maybe raise as a bug.

    There is definitely a lot of strangeness and instability going on in the sprite editor to the point where Im pretty much avoiding using it for now.

    I really hope scirra make enough to get a full time tester in at some stage to really test things especially like the editor.

    I must have come across 100 little issues with the editor but I just dont have the time or energy to raise them all in bug reporting

    edit. looks like there is a fair fiew updates to the sprite editor inthe new beta

    I feel exactly the same. I've stopped reporting them now, particularly the image editor, they fix one bug and add 2 more. Graphics editor all generally work in the same way, but i get the impression the person coding c3's has never used one before. It's all slightly off.

  • I reported this issue and they fixed it. Don't be lazy report the bugs

    I see ur smiley but just FYI I've reported plenty of bugs. But it is a question of priorities. I have a couple of hours on weekend to work on my game. Those hours could easily be eaten up by writing bug reports. So the question is do I spend the time to make test files and write bug reports or do I work on my game. Generally if it blocking my progress I will report it otherwise I have to crack on with my game , working around whatever issue and pray that someone else reports it.

  • I'm on r89 Stable. Alpha = 0 is still black. Not sure if it's meant to be this colour, but I've always assumed that Alpha 0 means transparent.

    That's okay, you don't need to report bugs if you don't have time. I'm busy, too so I understand your situation. My method is when I find a bug, I note it then when I got time, I report the bugs. I also use gifs to explain the bugs, it makes the process faster.

    angelo It's fixed in r91

    Thanks. Can't wait for the stable version to come out. Getting tired of using the eraser tool to paint transparent pixels

  • Looks like the alpha thing works in the latest version. I did my 7drl in Construct 2. My main problem is I believe chrome's fault which is the colors are messed up.
