Items monsters and player no longer have transparency, whereas in 3.06 these were blended with the tile behind them.

I opened up 32x32.png in photoshop, used the background eraser to remove the black background, making it transparent. This worked, though previous versions had black background in png as well. Thought maybe there was somehow a mask layer, or alpha layer in the old png, tried 32x32.png from 3.06 and had the same problem. Is the game actually doing some sort of color based masking?

Anyone know if there are png's out there with black background already removed? I don't want to waste a day removing it if someone has done it already.

I don't know anything about this myself, and the person who did work for the Mac port isn't around much at the moment. I know that the colour at (0, 0) in the PNG should be treated as transparent, but that's about the limit of my knowledge when it comes to graphics.

Look at (release highlighted in red) including the release notes and see if this is what you want.

Note that the mask32.bmp is a separate 2-colour file that can be used as the alpha channel for the PNG.

You can tell if you've got this right, because you should be able to see the legs on ants which are RGB(0,0,0) but not index colour 0.
