You could do something like this. (preferably a bit better organised.) I have used a small label but you could put an icon or a pic like merlin if you make the gui large enough.

#include <GuiConstants.au3>
#include <windowsconstants.au3>
Global Const $WS_EX_COMPOSITED = 0x2000000
Global $fade = 100, $way = 5
HotKeySet("{ESC}", "QuitApp")
Global $Startx, $Starty, $Endx, $Endy, $aM_Mask, $aMask, $nc
Global $gw = 12, $gh = 20
$Main_Gui = GUICreate("nahuel", $gw, $gh, 0, 0, $WS_POPUP, BitOR($WS_EX_COMPOSITED, $WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW, $WS_EX_TOPMOST))

;GUICtrlCreatePic(@SystemDir & "\oobe\images\merlin.gif", 0, 0, 68,71)
GUICtrlCreatelabel("*",0,0,10,20)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1,20,400)
GUICtrlSetColor(-1,0xff0000)

Opt("PixelCoordMode", 2)
GUISetState()
GUISetBkColor(0)

setTrans()
AdlibEnable("chase", 20)

While 1
    $Msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $Msg

        Case - 3
            Exit
    EndSwitch

WEnd

Func setTrans()

    $aM_Mask = DllCall("gdi32.dll", "long", "CreateRectRgn", "long", 0, "long", 0, "long", 460, "long", 460)

    $rct = DllStructCreate("int;int;int;inr", $aM_Mask[0])
    $TestCol = PixelGetColor(1, 1);<----------------------------set coords for your test colour here
;anything on the window which is the same colour as $TestCol will become transparent
    $Startx = -1
    $Starty = -1
    $Endx = 0
    $Endy = 0

    For $i = 0 To $gw;the window width
        For $j = 0 To $gh;the window height
            If PixelGetColor($i, $j) = $TestCol And $j < $gh Then

                If $Startx = -1 Then;start a new region
                    $Startx = $i
                    $Starty = $j
                    $Endx = $i
                    $Endy = $j
                Else;region already started so extend the end
                    $Endx = $i
                    $Endy = $j
                EndIf
            Else;not testcol or at end of line
                If $Startx <> -1 Then addRegion()

                $Startx = -1
                $Starty = -1
            EndIf
        Next
    Next
    DllCall("user32.dll", "long", "SetWindowRgn", "hwnd", $Main_Gui, "long", $aM_Mask[0], "int", 1)
EndFunc  ;==>setTrans

Func addRegion()
    $aMask = DllCall("gdi32.dll", "long", "CreateRectRgn", "long", $Startx, "long", $Starty, "long", $Endx + 1, "long", $Endy + 1)
    $nc += 1
    DllCall("gdi32.dll", "long", "CombineRgn", "long", $aM_Mask[0], "long", $aMask[0], "long", $aM_Mask[0], "int", 3)
EndFunc  ;==>addRegion


Func QuitApp()
    Exit
EndFunc  ;==>QuitApp

Func chase()
    $mp = MouseGetPos()
    WinMove($Main_Gui, "", $mp[0] + 10, $mp[1] + 10)
    $fade += $way
    If $fade > 200 Or $fade < 40 Then $way = -$way
    WinSetTrans($Main_Gui, "", $fade)

EndFunc  ;==>chase

If you mean turn off the character then add these 2 lines before the while loop

HotKeySet("{F10}","turnoff")
HotKeySet("{F11}","turnon")

and add these 2 functions somewhere

Func Turnoff()
    
    GUISetState(@SW_HIDE)
    AdlibDisable()
EndFunc

Func turnon()
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
    AdlibEnable("chase", 20)
EndFunc

Maybe read the error message and perhaps you shouldn't be redeclaring the constant variable?

Thank you for reply,

try before post, return another error :

==> Unknown function name.:
AdlibEnable("chase", 20)

don't see AdlibEnable function in script, can't understand how it use "chase" function....

m.

EDIT:

read vesion history changes, and find :

15th January, 2010 - v3.3.4.0 - AdlibEnable() and AdlibDisable() have been removed. See the new functions AdlibRegister() and AdlibUnRegister().

so :

- comment $WS_EX_COMPOSITED

- replace AdlibEnable("chase", 20) with AdlibRegister("chase", 20)

solve.

i'm searching now a valid basic IQ test before post
