The bars are drawn by self.bitmap.fill_rect. However, to include transparency, you'll need to edit the colours of the bars. Search for where HPCOLORBASE1 and similar are defined. This probably works; I've never tried it myself.
I never said it would be. I said it might be, if I can get things together for it. At the moment, I don't know if that'll happen.
Briefly, there will be a lot of new item/ability/move effects, forms can now change during battle, and there's a new animation type (its cels never move, so it's useful for full-screen animations that don't care where the battlers are). And various bug fixes and tweaks as usual.
Thanks for your effect contributions, by the way. I'll see what I can do with them.
I have user pages on the wiki which record what I've done with regards to item/ability/move effects. I've gone through the first two, and am currently two thirds through the move effects. It would help if you only send me effects I haven't already done. Contributions are always appreciated.
