The problem is indeed that the app_server renders the wrong color for the overlay. And right now I don't even have a good idea on how to work around that - maybe the alpha value can change that (if it's set correctly), but I dunno. The problem is that the app_server as well needs to select the correct color from the palette - it usually sees "white" (or whatever) and takes the wrong color. We must talk it into actually drawing the transparent magic color :-) > So: do you think I ask stupid questions, wasting your time?

Bye, Axel.
