Prompter Window Transparency

Recommended Posts

I thought when I first loaded the VoxATCX demo that the prompter window was transparent. Now the background is solid black.Was I imagining the transparency or did I do something to mess it up and lose it.Anyone know?Robert

Hi Robert,The prompter in VoxATC X is transparent, like a smoked piece of glass. Have you altered any of the files in VoxATC X? If not check your display settings, make sure you are using 32 bit and not 16 bit for your resolution. You might find that some AA/AF settings and certain display drivers might cause this anomolie.

This is what the installer placed in my panel.cfg file:////VoxATCI think before I was missing the zorder and the alpha_blend lines. I believe by adjusting the alpha_blend you can adjust the transparency. Hopefully someone will correct me if I am wrong.Hope this fixes your problem.Robert

Thanks Robert, I've found the culprit. It is FSPanel studio that changes the lines in panel.cfg in a certain way that modifies the original VOX ATC's entries. Interesting, because I only adjusted the startup position of the window. So, DON'T use FSPanel Studio in the panels where you have VOX ATC installed. No matter even if you want to change anything else besides VOX. Or do it if you want, then edit VOX ATC lines in panel.cfg MANUALLY as Robert showed above.Thanks.
