Probably one of those stupid allegro-questions, but here goes: I just need to know if it's possible and in any case how to have one bitmap (in my case a PNG-file with full alpha transparency - mostly for antialiasing-reasons) overlap another (any jpeg-file), thus masking the underlying content (the jpeg-file) resulting in a masked surface. (A basic feature found in Macromedia Flash for instance). In case I wasn't clear enough, I posted a graphic instance of what I want to achieve on the URL above. Just for further clarification, I want to use allegro with directX-support (so if I'm not mistaken, an openGL-solution - which probably won't be necessary in this case, won't work - right?)... Example code would be great! Best, John
