How do you make 2 picture boxes overlap, but you can see through them?

Posted 28 September 2012 - 07:00 AM

I've been working on a fighting game where 2 stick figures move toward each other, but when they get there they overlap and one becomes pretty much invisible. I want a way to make it so that when they overlap you can still see the both of them.

What is your image source? A jpg? My guess is the white areas (which should be transparent) are not.. open the image up in gimp, paint.net, adobe, etc and remove the white areas and save it as a PNG.

I don't know - what ever the "select and irregularly shaped area so I can delete it" tool is. The magic wand tends to get good swaths of area.
