HI all

 So here is my problem...

 I have created an icon set and it works, however, it has a white background and not the checkerd blue and black background. Every icon I use now has a white square behind the picture instead of nothing.

 I am using Graphics gale as the program.

P.S.

 Don't laugh at me if its a simple thing to fix :)

two ways to solve this problem:

Open the picture in a program that supports transparency, delete the white background and save it in a format that supports transparency (like png)

Or open the picture in a program that doesn't support transparency, save it in a format without transparency options and use the resource manager to set the transparency when importing.

The problem is if you use a format that supports transparency (like png), but don't set the transparency map correctly, then the resource manager assumes that you do not want transparency and skips the transparency options when importing.

The disadvantage of forcing the resource manager to create the transparency setting by using a file format without transparency is that the resulting picture takes a lot more space, making a later program download bigger.

That's why you should usually use the graphic programs transparency options - but if that is not possible and if it's for a single icon set, you can use the other way as a workaround.

Thanks guys. It turns out I wasn't changing the Translucent colour from black to white during the importing step.

Making games is the only thing I'm good at. Real talk.
So, uh... where's the RPG Maker MZ update with the MV animation system? Is there a release date confirmed?
Also I'm kind of brave enough to admit this. I... I have a crush on Sephiroth.
Please don't call me anything offensive. I'm naturally crazy.
thanks to a lot of lunatic coding... my game finally has a stun mechanic that I feel really good about. damage enemy's mental psyche (mp), and once empty, hitting with certain attacks trigger combos that can stack the damage.
Waiting for the 1.40 update before testing out my copy of MZ so that I don't end up adding unnecessary work to my plate. Meanwhile the current fourth draft for my story is taking shape, and I'm fleshing out the lore as I realize how things would make better sense here and there for the world that I'm building.

Just found out about your complications. I'm so sorry that you're going through this. I wish I could do something substantial for you, but our distance from each other makes that an impossibility. Still, if you ever need to talk or vent, I'm here.
