No offense meant, but the "new" tentacle looks
considerably worse than the Tentacle picture in
the original Photoshop design. In particular,
below the right arm (the one with the gun), Purple
Tentacle's side is very ragged...

No idea how it looked before the patch, I guess I
should search through CVS to find out :-)

I guess the issues is there because we use GIF
which only supplies 1 bit for transparency, and
not PNG with full 8bit alpha channel (which of
course is incompatible with MS IE -- oh, how I
hate it :-/).

That said, can somebody explain to me why an alpha
channel is required there at all?

no offense taken :)

see compare here:

I merely removed some single pixels sticking out on the
right side and made the big purple and green parts one color
instead of having artifacts; the part below the arm is unchanged

also note that in the version on the site there's still a
single pixel on the right, why this appears is beyond me
(it's not in the .gif)
