Stripes style giving me hassle

Can’t figure this one out.
Getting an error using Stripes, most likely because there’s an AlphaL color in it.
However, adding a Black underlying base color, the usual quick-fix for a base layer containing a transparent color, is not working.
I feel like this has worked fine before, considering I copied the blade style out of an old config.
This way:

  // Black,

gives expected error:

ProffieOS/styles/stripes.h:42:22: error: conversion from 'RGBA_um_nod' to non-scalar type 'OverDriveColor' requested

But adding in the black layer doesn’t fix it.


The error is more extensive

ProffieOS/styles/layers.h:41:58: error: ambiguous overload for 'operator<<' (operand types are 'SimpleColor' and 'SimpleColor')
   41 |   auto getColor(int led) -> decltype(base_.getColor(led) << layer_.getColor(led)) {

---------- repeating -----------

Did I break it?

Stripes doesn’t support transparent colors.

Stripes cannot have layers inside the style and cannot use AlphaL as a Color.

oh yeah. :man_facepalming:
I thought I had it in a previous config, but I had actually just glazed over the Stripes closing > and assumed the AlphaL color that followed was a color of Stripes.
Nothing to see here, moving on.
Sorry, thanks.
