I was wondering, is this possible.
Because of the way I have things set up on my skin, parts of my map are covered up with elements, so it would be nice to make them translucent (basicly giving them a lower alpha content)
You can make windows translucent. You can only make controls completely transparent.

how does one go about this? In the skin ref is tells me that the background-color needs the params #RRGGBB, no AA :F

In the skin editor, there's a bar for opacity while editing windows.
Labels can be Transparent. I think it might just be only labels, maybe buttons too.

That makes the background go translucent too,
I only need the elements ontop of the map to change;

see the elements ontop of the map >.<

Put them in another window positioned where you want it to be. Make that window translucent.

Then I have an overlay of that window ontop, the background of the old window too.
