Whatever graphics editing tool you're using to create the icon (PNG file) should have an option to set the transparency to a particular color in your image. So--it could be any color, most folks use white or sky blue but that information lives inside the image file itself.

The MS Windows Paint application is the only one I know of in the entire world that does not provide that option.

Default Chess Application missing Icon

While we are on the Icon subject I wonder if you can help me, I found a java based application that I loaded into my BB for a chess game, it loaded and plays great, though I have seen better graphics but the game satisfies me, however, when I loaded it using the javaloader it placed a generic icon which I do not like, I created an icon but I do not know how to get the install to use it can anyone help me at all, I am not a programmer or have programming skills but I am good at following directions if you can even post me in the right direction I may be able to figure it our Thanks.
