I have a semi-transparent vase that casts a nice shadwo when I hit "p".

However, when I start the standalone player, the transparent material doesn't cast a shadow.

Any ideas why that could be? Thanks in advance!

Got it, had to change the transparency from "Z Transparency" to "Raytrace".

Edit: In the material settings you have "mask" "z transparency" and "raytrace" - just select the "raytrace" box.
