The viewer has had an option for many years now to force all alpha
channels down to 1 bit. This fixes most all the alpha sorting problems
but it also breaks content (mostly hair and particles).

Viewer 1 Advanced -> Render -> Fast Alpha
Viewer 2-2.1 Develop -> Render -> Fast Alpha
Snowglobe 2.1 & viewer-development -> Develop -> Render -> Automatic
Alpha Masking (with separate options for deferred and non deferred)
