    I can work on that. As TheWeeBear pointed out though, Mango will not support these so soon I may no longer be supporting the transparent images unless MS adds this support back to Mango. Systems are running slow due to a network-wide backup but I will attempt to do something today or tomorrow.

    The gallery has been updated. You will find Woody's wallpaper with transparency features towards the bottom.

    Its a online rpg. Some of the characters in your wallpapers are from the game. The game is based off a anime series to though.

    I know, I really liked the Transparent, for one thing I would use it in a crowd of people and they would go WTF is that..Oh it's WP7.... really though it's more for my enjoyment. I can't figure out what changed that would cause that to happen...

    Whatever it is, it effects how the WP7 handles transparent layers within its lock screen. There might have been a reason for it or maybe they were blind to all the chatter and design circulating the web for trans images and have no clue that customers were using them.

    Just tried a couple of these today and it worked however iv'e noticed that it changes to a multi thumbnail view once you release the hold on the image.


    This is all from the home screen of course.

    You are running Mango? If so, transparent images will no longer work as Mango does not properly support them. It is noted both in the main post and in the gallery. There is no news yet on if MS will correct this.

    No problem. Until MS offers an update allowing Mango phones to use transparency, I'll hold off from making any additional transparent images. I'll continue to pump out the regular non-transparent ones when able.

    What stinks is spending many HOURS working on graphics just to watch as they become incompatible heh. Oh well...honestly I don't even know if MS knew that Mango lost the support....or that Metro had it at all. I've yet to see a statement made by them about it.

    They probably did it as part of general power savings. I know true transparancy texture shading in GPU (if MS is indeed using the GPU for GUI) takes up a bit of GPU time. Though, I am admittedly, mostly ignorant of mobile GPU arch (actually, anything outside of nVidia GT200/CUDA, I might as well be guessing out of thin air :().

    No, you could be right about that. I just wish MS would acknowledge it. It helps those of us looking to contribute. Helps keep us in the know of what changes are coming and why so we can prepare for them or better understand once they have occurred.

    That's also why I have hesitated to read too deep into the dev kit. WP7 is too early in it's dev....I'd rather wait till the OS is a little more adapted and recognized (knowing MS...they could drop it tomorrow and replace it with something new if it doesn't reach what their looking for heh).
