What is the alpha threshold?
« on: March 17, 2011, 04:08:01 PM »

Hello.
When engine tests hit point on "click" which alpha value means that object was clicked? I mean how much alpha is it need for image to have to be clickable?
Alpha varies from 0 to 255.

Alpha < 128 is considered transparent.

Hmm... I have the glass jar which is almost impossible to click within my ported version (original C++ engine permits to click this jar well) - it's alpha is near 60. May be there is some logic which intends to apply click on even transparent object in case there are no objects below it?

You can add a region entity on top of the object in SceneEdit.

The problem is that I port already written game from original WME to Flash (AS3) version and I must simulate whole it's behavior.

Adding the region entity will make the object clickable which, as I understand it, it's the behavior you want?

I must not edit game's source scripts - I must port it from original WME implementation to FLASH one "as is".

Slav, yes. if there is region entity in that scene in question, covering the image, the full shape of that region is clickable. Also if the image in question is not image but sprite, it's possible to turn off pixel perfect which again allows the full shape to be clickable.
