I have some unexpectable trouble whith making custom elements.
I tried to make a custom bomb. Sprite looks normaly in the character editor screen, but in game it has a black background.
Is there any way to fix it? PNG file included

P.S. Sorry for my bad English

Hi,

Drod behaves funny when transparency is involved. An alpha channel in your file does not work. Rather, a particular shade of grey is always interpreted as transparent. So you have to set your image background to exactly that shade.

I can't tell you the value (have to look it up) but if you search the forum, I'm sure you'll find it. It has been discussed before.
