Exactly how transparent are shadows in TCB?

Like the kind seen at the bottom right of walls. With what alpha value do they get displayed on the ground?

According to a quick test with GIMP they seem to have an alpha value of 63, which corresponds with an opacity of ca. 25%.

Oh snap I just realized I could test it by taking screenshots too..

Hmm yeah 63 / 25% seems about right. Thanks.
