Im using Holez model pack.There you can find 2 glass entities that are supposed to be transparent,but If I put light behind the glass, entities become invisible.
I have set the transparency to 1 but if it gets in light range they become invisible.
No light: I can see entities behind the glass just fine
Light: entities are invisible behind the glass.
What am I missing here?

Yep, have run into this problem several times in the past.
Right off the top of my head I can't remember what settings to use.
Are your lights static or dynamic? I can't recall which to use, but
it's one or the other. Then you have to play with the "glass/texture" transparency settings.

My games never have bugs. They just develop random features..
Lots and lots of random features...

The fix: Place transparent doors and water in your level LAST, before placing all other dynamic entities. This is how I did the showcase level. If you make a mistake and place more entities down after placing the doors, then delete the doors and rebuild your game. This will reset the "sorting order"."
