For anyone else who might be about to panic because their retinas are starting to burn, dark theme is accessible in the lower-leftmost corner of the page. You're welcome.

:D

Would it be too much to ask to have the old black text back for the light theme? This lighter grey text combined with the grey background is a bit harder to read (and even harder to read on the main forum headers).

Also, it'd be nice to not have to scroll down all the way to bottom to access all of the sidebar, but that's a minor complaint (especially considering you can just turn it off).

Finally, I don't think that gap above the navigation bar in the dark theme is intentional, considering it's not there in the light theme.

Aside from all those...it's much different from the old theme, but I can't say it doesn't look nice. All the new features are nice too. It's nothing I can't get used to.

Currently, this syntax highlight looks hideous in dark mode. Everything else are nice, even tho I prefer darker dark theme like it was before.

EDIT: also the box in the reply that is separating the signature and actual post looks like a quote.

Renewal is always good, unless there're no improvements ;P
I appreciate that as user.

I am really sorry to grumble, but I absolutely hate the new colour schemes. Please, please, please can we have the old forum colours back as an option?

As much as we want to, the old template does not work with the new forum software update. Updating just the colors and finding where everything is already super hard. I know it's hard for you but I really can't go any faster. I'm still tinkering and figuring out how to fix code blocks colors for example.

It'll take some getting used to but this new format isn't so bad.
Feels easier to edit posts and the Dark Theme, which isn't super dark, is pretty easy on the eyes.

Thank you for all the hard work so far, looking forward to the final version of the new forums! Taking my time to see whats new for now. :rwink:

The only unfortunate side effect that I can see is that all the Links in old posts are hard to pick out. As they are the same color as normal text atm instead of Blue like last time, it isn't a problem for new stuff with the easy drop down color picker, but the old Links will be tricky on the eyes.

There are 2 versions. One only affects combat, cutscene, and portraits. The other one changes more.
So, technically, the game now has 7 versions on steam.
