Transparency help.

  • Hi, so I make all the sprites I use in MS Paint, and then paste them into the editor on Construct Classic. This has been working excellent for the three months I've been working on the game, but all of a sudden the editor started changing the colors of the sprites whenever they are selected in the editor.

    What they look like in MS Paint:

    <img src="http://gyazo.com/c6330962928693aebf66d331d22f2528.png" border="0" />

    What they look like once pasted into the editor and then deselected:

    <img src="http://gyazo.com/1e68cc4d1a31de3713c115d48c4dd6e7.png" border="0" />

    Also for some reason I can't select the white space as much as I normally can, the selections with the wand tool end up looking like this:

    <img src="http://gyazo.com/cb0dc0d730bc6404f5bddb0df6eb877b.png" border="0" />

    Anyone have a solution for me? I would hate to lose this project after working on it for so long just because the editor stopped working...

  • Try RGB of 255,0,255 for the background instead of white, that's the default transparent color when you copy external images into the editor.

  • Ok, that fixed one problem. Thank a lot, i can at least manage somewhat now.

    But the editor still changes the color of anything that is pasted into it. Whenever I use a select tool, the color of the selection starts to fade out till it's transparent, and then only dims the pixels around the selection. It's really annoying and I have no idea why it's doing that.

  • Just curious; why are you pasting images into the editor instead of just importing them through the file menu?

    Is if because you're combining images to create new images or something?

  • Oh no, I was just pasting them through a full sheet. But if you can by pass the editor altogether, that'd be great. I'll look up how to do that.

    Don't you need the editor to set points and stuff though?

  • The best and most reliable way of working with CC's picture editor is to paint your sprite images including transparencies with your preferred external graphics application, save the results to disk as .png (incl. transparencies) and then import them in CC's picture editor (Second icon in the top row).

    I assume this is also what MrMiller meant.

    Yep, image points, hotspots, etc.
