Transparent WINDOW

Post by cloudstrifer » Thu Mar 08, 2018 3:21 am

Hi, how to make my WINDOW layer be transparent (like Sonic HUD)?
My PLAN_A have high priority.

Can someone show me examples?

Thank you!

Window replaces Plane A, so they cannot be drawn over the same area at the same time. It is a limitation of the VDP. I believe sonic uses sprites for the HUD.

Sonic just uses sprites for the HUD, yeah. It's not even a big HUD.

I imagined this.

Sprites should be high priority to be at the top.

Thank you!

Yep, they should also come first in the list so game sprites (player, items, etc.) don't go over it.
