      Description

      Old bug that has been observed in both Alchemy and Firestorm. Tends to crop up only under heavy use so it's kind of annoying to reproduce.

      Step 1: Get your VRAM very full, creaking at the seams. (May wish to lower your VRAM limit to make this part easier)
      Step 2: Keep loading assets, I find this happens more readily when you avail yourself of the refresh textures feature that Alchemy has.
      Step 3: Repeat reloading blurry assets while grumbling until the darn bug manifests.

      When the default transparent texture manifests this glitch you won't be able to force it to reload under normal means. There is, however, a way to fudge it into properly reloading. Find in your library "*Default Transparent Texture" and double click that in your inventory. Being inside the texture view window forces Alchemy to reload it properly, it might take a few moments though, just leave the window up until it stops being gray.
