Alpha Bitmaps in XML Gauges

Recommended Posts

Hi All,I read about this subject very often here in the forum but couldn't find an easy description of how to integrate or overlay a transparent bitmap (alpha channel bitmap). What I want to do is to realize a typical glass reflection on a gauge (no vector gauge!). It's no problem with simple gauges like N1 or something as here I could paint a normal bitmap on the scale. But this is not possible with an altitude or a rolling number gauge for example. Did someone know a way to realize this and could post a description of how to do it and maybe a link to a tool which I need for it? Would be great.Best RegardsMatthias

Download the FS2004 panels SDK, the secret is all in there. You also need imagetool, FS2004 version, to convert to 8-bit bmp with alpha.some combinations of colors doesn't seem to work fro me though.
