Operating System:Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit
Web Browser:Internet Explorer 8.0
Status: Not a bug

This is not a bug. It may be an incorrect use of syntax or a limitation in the software. For further discussion on the matter, please consult the BYOND Developer forums.
Descriptive Problem Summary:The map editor background seems to be purple, not sure if it's a bug, but it is different, and partly annoying for the reasons I will list below.

1.The background was changed, it seemed to be fine before.

2.The parts of the map that have nothing on them don't seem to be greyish or a different color at all, so you can't tell where each square is, and since square based games are still a dime a dozen, could be annoying when trying to figure out where things go when you can't see where the squares are.

Numbered Steps to Reproduce Problem:1.Open dream daemon with a new project and create a map, the screen is fully blank and you can't tell where the 10x10 square is that is default where you have to work with for your map, instead it's all purple, no way to tell where every square is like before.

Code Snippet (if applicable) to Reproduce Problem:


Expected Results:It to be the same as before with no purple background and different color background for the map even if no icons are put on yet.

Actual Results:The background is purple and you can't tell where you have map or blank to where the map does not even extend to.
