    Can someone help me with the SimTools Game Engine GUI background? Mine is a dark "carbon fiber" look which is awesome. But most of the labels on the buttons are black letters as well and I cannot read them. So I have to poke around and try to memorize the buttons, which sucks. Is there a way to change the button label colors or the background color easily? I am certainly no programmer. I have attached pictures of my problem.

    Hi there , had the same problem ! I was using a secondary PC over Remote desktop and using windows classic theme. Switched back to windows 7 basic theme and it fixed it ! But it would be nice to have an option for that carbon fiber background ...

    Thanks for the heads up on the themes.
    I ended up Putin’s Hame Engine on my gaming PC with windows 10 instead of having a remote laptop setup for tuning. That fixed my problem.
