I must be a damn moron when it comes to this. I opened a Bitmap (included in the attachment) w/Photoshop 7 & edited the image so I have 3 .png files (1 of each shield-also in attachment). I then used StartOrbz Studio to create a New Orb, but when I apply the Orb, the background is black & not transparent.

How do I get the transparency? I've tried what I read in Photoshop's Help, but I just can't seem to get this right.

Give these a try I used Gimp to save them after removing the black it saves the transparency better for me then PS, I made the orb to.

Looks great Bongo, I've been able to change some .bmp orbs I have to .png orbs w/tranparency, but I am having the darnest problem w/the one I've attached. I tried both Photoshop & GIMP, but just can't get it right. Could you take a shot at this one?

Here you go, it looked like the transparency was fine when I opened it in gimp. I went ahead and made the start orb with StartOrbz.

Assassins Creed Abstergo

Hi, I created 2 Assassin's Creed themed start images, however when I applied the 1st Abstergo one for some reason when I hovered over the start button the "Normal" image can be seen below the "Hover" image, couldn't figure out how to fix it so I just covered it up with a colour that matched my start bar, thought I would share it anyway and if someone might be able to fix it feel free to do so.

Do people still even care about StartOrbz anymore? I know I haven't posted in a while, sorry about that. I was days away from releasing SO4.0 last year when life happened.

Anyways, I have spent the last few days working on the old bug list. If all goes well. I will release Korbin 4.1 tonight.

I decided to give a sneak peak of what to expect.

Oh hell yea! I still use v2.1a & change my Orb every few months if not more, depending on my mood

I don't know if it's really a 'bug', but the only occurance I ever have is that if I use StartOrbz from my Standard Account, once I apply an Orb, the Orb Menu shows my Admin. Account & I just need to quit & restart Explorer.exe (using Task Manager).

New build looks interesting, but I hope it won't only be for 8. I'm not planning to upgrade to 8, staying w/7.
