Topic: Bizarre bug with transparencies, need help
I could use some help, I'm having problems with transparency of labels and other modules on my system. I'm running Windows 7 64-bit on LS 0.25.
I was messing around with some theme settings in Windows (haven't touched my Litestep .rc in weeks) and somewhere along the way I seem to have broken compatibility with my LS theme. The problem is that almost all my labels / modules which had transparencies now show blocks that eat through the wallpaper and just show the windows desktop background color instead. I have no idea how I caused this or how I should fix it. This affects not only xlabel, but also Xtray and lsxcommand. It does NOT seem to affect labels that are 100% transparent and use a .bmp (magic pink) to do so. I'm posting some sections from my .rc file below in hopes that someone can tell me what to do:
Here's an example of a label that shows the bug that was working fine a few days ago:
DateFontColor 255 255 255
DateFontOutlineColor 0 0 0
Here's an example of a label that does NOT show the bug:
As an experiment, I tried converting the first label to image mode and pointing it to a magic pink .bmp like the one above. That partially solved the transparency issue, but then I saw a magenta outline around all my text.
Any help people can offer would be appreciated.
