I am trying to put a semi-transparent colored panel in front of other user interface objects so that those other objects are visible behind the panel, but do not respond to mouse clicks. It seems that using the panel object won't work, as it passes those mouse clicks to objects behind it. I also don't want to send "ignore mouse click" messages to all the UI objects behind the panel (there's tons of them). I took a look at lcd, but couldn't figure out a way to get it to draw with an alpha of anything other than 1.0. I'd also like to avoid using jit.lcd if possible.
