Hack output should not darken the entire left side of the screen

Device: Pixel 4

OS: Android 10

App Version: 2.33.1

After hacking a portal, it's understandable and well to darken the background behind each item as it’s displayed on the left side of the screen (contrast is a good thing!). However, darkening the entire left side is a bit much. If my screen were to have a stroke, that's what I'd imagine it to look like. It's disconcerting, especially if I look away for a moment in between completing the hack and when the output starts to appear.

    +1. I don't think it's necessary for it to be dark at all - it never was when the hacked items were in the middle of the screen (or not that I noticed).

    This is still happening in 2.39.3, and I still find it just as disconcerting and annoying. 😝

    As far as I’m concerned, this issue was addressed by the following change in 2.40.1, which I rather like:

    UI: Hacked item animation loads in all three vertical slots to show hack output more quickly

    Actually when I upgrade I experienced a bug that wasnt showing this shadow (I tought it was the new default) and it was horrible. The itens looked transparent and displeasing to watch.

    But I agree that it is a little bigger, and feels like I'm loosing visible area. But it was worse in previous versions (or I just got used, or its because every slot is occupied now).
