Hmm... transparency (alpha) is set to the color black. The reason you can't see it is because I think there is black in the middle of the blue. Try using a dark gray for it. But if it's not black then I don't know what's wrong

The closer the colour is to black, the more transparent it becomes. I used to have the same problems using dark purple, ended up using a lighter colour instead.

No, I don't think anything is wrong with you compiling. I honestly have no idea, you should ask someone like Ashur. PM him, he's good with sprites.
