I don't know how it would look, and it would take unbearably long, but could you have different layers, with one transparency and then another one with checkerboard (by pixel) gray or something? Just trying to use logic to avoid that... cursed thing.

I see, it took me a while to figure out what you were talking about.

What you're suggesting could be easily done, but I'm afraid it won't work. DarkPlaces doesn't support layered graphics. It's either jpg or tga.

The alpha-thing is a whole different ballgame; I'm afraid.

I dont know if you want to try and install GIMP. Alpha channels are really easy to do there. What you'll want to do is save your skin as a full color TGA, then you'll want to open it in GIMP.

1. In the image window menu select Layer>Mask>Add Layer Mask.
2. A options window should open. Keep the "White (full opacity)" option and click "OK"
3. Fill the entire skin with a grey, the darker the grey the more transperent it will be.
4. Then click Layer>Mask>Apply Layer Mask
5. Save the image... done.

see, zombie ghosts... AHHHH!!!!

You'll probably have to do some effort to see it from that angle ingame. :P

Gimp installed, did what you said, but I can't find the model ingame. I'll retry on a model I know is in the game, and see if it works.
