Sega Saturn Transparency

Someone just sent me a great writeup written by Matt Greer back in 2016 about how transparency effects are used in the Sega Saturn and why you don’t see them as often as other consoles:

I don’t want to spoil the main article, but basically it’s a result of how the dual VDP1 and VDP2 work together to make the images.  While I’m definitely not a programmer, I still enjoy reading about what makes some of the quirks of these classic consoles!
