Is it just me or is the ghost cat no longer transparent in the alpha? I've tried different lighting and still can't see through him. (Sorry for the ui being in the pic. New computer and haven't figured out how to get rid of it for pics)

It doesn't look like it to me. I'll hop over there shortly and go take a look.

I think I heard someone say the ghostly blue vulture wasn't translucent on alpha either. Hmmm...

Looks like it is still transparent, but not always. Prior to it being tamed, it doesn't look like that it is transparent. But after taming, it was transparent.

That's odd. It sounds like there may be some general issues with transparency in BfA. has anyone checked any of the other old ghostlies?

Post subject:  Re: Ghost cat

are you sure the transparent isnt just stealth? cats has that toggled on at tame .. i think?

Post subject:  Re: Ghost cat

No, it isn't in stealth. I turned that off right after I tamed it.

Check the ghost boar, that one's easy to get to. :mrgreen:

I checked out the ghost boar and it has also lost its transparency.

Also, when I logged off last night, the Ghost Saber was transparent. When I logged back in, it wasn't anymore.

Checked out a couple of Spirit Beasts. They don't seem to be affected by this.

I've checked most of the transparent ones (I'll get a list in a second) and theyve all lost transparency, both before and after taming.

These are the ones I've checked that are no longer ghostly before or after tame (except Spirit Worg):

Others:

Not a ghostly, but Olm the wise is fine (spectral owl).

I couldn't get the Angered Arakkoa Protector to spawn, even when hitting the mobs with the foam sword. I couldn't check the Disembodied Jorumunger due to rep requirements to spawn it. Couldn't check ghost hydra either.

Ghost Saber was initially ghostly, but once dismissing and bringing it back out, it no longer is. I added it.

Anyone with the lone hunter with the sword still in his head able to see if this change removes the sword? Or since its alpha you making new toons and not using your actual account transferred onto a testing server?

We can't copy characters right now. That'll happen in Beta, most likely.

Post subject:  Re: Ghost cat

Wow, that's great work. Thanks!

Olm is transparent due to the model, and the fact that its skin is mostly an alpha mask. The rest (as far as I can see) are regular models that have had a transparency applied to them after. It looks like that transparency setting is currently being ignored. I guess it'll probably affect some ghostly characters in the game too.

Yeah the ghostly stewards and phantom guests in Kara are no longer transparent. Oddly, Berthold still is.

I'll do a thread on the Alpha forums.

Sorry, I already posted one as I didn't see one up. If you've created one I'll delete mine. Sorry about that.

Thats totally fine! I'll look it up.

Oddly the Restless Foreman and Ghastly Nightwatch ride spectral horses on live. On Alpha, the NPC remains transparent, but the horses don't. I guess its not the same effect, but the I can't seem to find a unique ID for the horse anyway.

I sure hope it changes in beta or when it goes live. I hate losing one of my favorites after this many years.

Yeah, something just broke is all. Attention to it has been made on the Alpha forums, so hopefully we'll see it get fixed soon :)
