As far as I can tell it is working correctly, but the negated form of the condition is probably more complicated than you expect. It works a bit like this:

For each Player:
For each Enemy:
If no LOS from Player to Enemy, pick both the Player and Enemy

Since the range of the LOS is 150, you end up with complicated combinations of whether neither, one or both of the Player objects have LOS to the Enemy object depending on their relative distances. This is then displayed as changing opacity as they move around, but as far as I can see it is correctly reflecting these combinations.
