I don't think BMP has support for transparency...?

Also, you are aware, I hope, that there is an option in the client which
turns transparency on and off?

What image editor do you use? I use gimp for editing tilesets and it works
wonderfully. gimp works in windows as well.

If all else fails, try sending me the offending tileset files, and I'll
try to help out.
