Thread: App icon transparency?

  1. #1
    Default App icon transparency?
    Hi,

    I'm having a bit of trouble with app icon transparency...

    Does it even work?

    When I give an app a PNG icon with transparency, it doesn't work. For some reason, native apps do, however:



    (the actual Physics app has the transparent parts filled out too)
    Does anyone know why only Camera has the transparency or how to force it on for other applications?

    edit: wow, okay. tried reading a few more things...

    does anyone know how to disable overlay for an app only?

    It is in a plist somewhere in the app. If you change hte icon using Winterboard in summerboard mode I know transperent does work otherwise every theme's icons would be having a problem

    I have the UIPrerenderedIcon set to true, and it doesn't affect AppIconShadow...

    yeah, I am using Winterboard, the thing is, traansparency of the icon works. But I don't have a custom theme using custom AppIconOverlay, Shadow, etc. I like the default ones. But when it's there, I get the black blob behind.

    you shouldn't if you are using the summerboard style with themename/Icons/Meebo.png or all themes would have that problem =/ maybe try setting the thing you have as true to false?
