Question about color blind fix

Post by coyote303 » Fri Jul 24, 2009 2:05 pm

This is my first and only mod I'm using. If I get brave and try a multiplayer game someday, do I need to disable it?

Nope. :)

As the mod alters only the GUI part of the game it should be fully MP compatible.

I'm not color blind, but this mod is still helpful because its quicker to tell the difference between the blue on the screen from the yellow then it is from the crappy yellow green that they originally had in the game, so thx for the mod

I haven't played in a while and have changed computers. So, I tracked down this thread, but I don't see Carch's mod link. Are they gone for good, or am I missing something?

All attached files are gone after the forum was retooled.

I quickly made a new version based on the original description. Let me know if it does what you need or if you require any further help.

Thanks, ZenMagnus. It works perfectly, and so easy to set up, too!

I recently purchased the Sword of the Stars: Complete Collection during the Steam sale, and discovered I also have some difficulty distinguishing between the default colors of the game.

However, the ColorBlindFix.zip posted above no longer seems to work. I realize this is likely a long shot given the age of the game, but can anyone please repost/reupload the colorblind fix?

Good luck with a great (and challenging) game. Unfortunately, the forums scrub attachments after a while. If you look at the beginning of the thread, it tells you how to mod your own cross colors. Not as easy as a pre-made solution, but it might help you solve the problem.
