Webtiles: Increase the visibility of ghosts

Why are ghosts transparent in-game? It creates an interface screw, especially when shit like this happens:

Want to keep the transparency? Throw that glow around them that you give to demigods.

This is a v14 tournament game.

Perhaps a ghostly aura instead of transparency?

Re: Webtiles: Increase the visibility of ghosts

Couldn't agree more. It's always a pain when I go down a staircase, the game tells me I see a player ghost, and I spend the next five minutes playing "Where's Waldo" trying to find it.

Red box around all enemies. We will never get a complaint about this again.

Yeah, player ghosts could stand to have the transparency turned down a notch. I think it's cool they use the same tileset as the player, though.

True... but then we'll start getting complaints about the red boxes around everything.

Good; not in Yiuf. Any more feedback on how to resolve this sort of shenanigan? Should I just post it to Mantis?
