It would be nice if the alpha option could be activated for individual skins, instead of it being a global option. But that is something for the Winamp devs to do.

I guess something goes wrong occasionally during the extraction from the wal files to the subfolders created in my user temp folder. I've copied the folders and their files created for Styler Radiance to the Winamp/Skins folder (renamed the lead folder and deleted the wal file) so that expanding the wal archive won't be necessary. So far, that appears to have fixed the problem for Radiance. If it comes back, I'll let you know.

I have done this for a few of my other skin wal files with the goal of saving the few milliseconds (or less) which would otherwise be needed to create and delete their temp files. This is not really needed, but I figured it couldn't hurt and now it seems to have another benefit.

This could be something isolated to my system and my combination of 3rd party stuff. Unless it is reported by others, I won't worry about it.
