I don't really know what exactly is going wrong but I do believe there's a bug happenning with animating big icons. I've made a simple test case for you that shows it happenning 100% of the times. Link: http://www.mediafire.com/file/f8cps05ommerker/HeyTest.rar/ file
Descriptive Problem Summary:
In the test case, drawing the lighting_plane shouldn't affect the day_night obj's alpha nor color, but the moment the lighting_plane obj is created, the alpha is affected and the color is reseted. Notice how the color changes.
Numbered Steps to Reproduce Problem:
Open the project
Use the verb "draw planes" (notice how it changes the color)
Use the verb "drawspotlight"
The color and the alpha from daynight should be mantained, and the spotlight
should get throught it, removing it where it is present
The color and the alpha from daynight are disregarded.
Does the problem occur:
Every time? Or how often? Every time
In other games? Yes
In other user accounts? Yes
On other computers? Yes
When does the problem NOT occur? Never
Workarounds: None that I know of
