Everytime I try to convert a image into a bitmap, Tool.exe gives me an alpha channel error

I making a UI, but the halo_logo.bitmap shows the black background and not the transparency of the alpha channel.

Can someone explain me how to create the bitmap correctly or tell me what I have to do to show the transparency in the bitmap file?

Sorry for my bad and basic english.

Thanks

I laugh at people who put STUDIOS in their name.

Use Guerilla:

Open the .bitmap

Change the format to one that has what you want

Close the .bitmap

Recompile your image through tool

(Then your .bitmap will look proper(if you did it right))

Like Orange juice said, change the format of your bitmap tag to something that will work with an alpha, like interpolated alpha.

From top to bottom each compression setting gains slightly better quality with 32 bit being the highest and colour key transparency being the lowest.

Select a setting, save the bitmap tag and re-compile.

Thanks to all!! the problem really was Guerilla, because the files I edited were hidden, as if they did not exist, and could only be opened with the same Guerilla.
