I really like the mushroom one. I just have a question, when i hover above it is it supposed to move a bit to the left? like its red then on green it shifts.

Mr Grim that press play one is awesome but when i change my orb its sort of transparent is there a way to make it darker? I did change it from png to bmp before modifying because im using a little tool that changes the orb for me and it only takes bmp.

Thanks for the awesome buttons im gonna be alternating between each like weekly :P!

The Press Start to Play one doesn't seem to work to well, even though the image is duplicated and spaced evenly it comes out misaligned when you apply it, anyway I made it less transparent and I also made a Mario one for you to try.
