I made a model of a tree using Tree Magik... Everything looked fine, but when I exported the model to .x all of the textures lost their transparency, leaving ugly black boxes all over the model. Then, when I use dbSetObjectTransparncy ( object, flag ) the model looks terrible, drawing the textures in a way that you can see right through the model! How can I fix this?

You're setting the object transparency. I'm not sure how you would do this in Dark GDK but in Dark Basic Pro you would do:

I'm sure you can turn this into Dark GDK code though.

try setting the transparency mode to 4 or 6
eg
set object transparency objectno,6

this will give you the best result for tree magik and plant life trees.
