    I'm thinking about modding some sections of my favourite skin(s). My idea is to copy the style tv stations use to overlay video with a monochrome and transparent version of their logo or name. I know how to do shadows but failed making fonts transparent with the alpha hex value.

    So is there a way to have transparent text or fonts in skins, to overlay video or fanart?
