While making games in j2me lot of images are required.
The main problem is that j2me doesnot support transparency
so the games look very bad.Is there any way i can make these images transperent.

Hi there, I don't think there is any way of making images transparent, at least in the current standard. From what I've heard, you can't even do old tricks like XORing to create transparent images. The only way around it is to include the background as part of the image, or to find a way to use the primitives to create your image. The latest issue of Game Developer (gdmag.com) had an article that talked about the image transparency problem and how it was addressed.
On similar note, the drawLine() routine on the Motorola i50sx doesn't seem to work properly in certain instances. Guess they got their Bresenham's implementation incorrect (if that's what they are using)?
