RPG Maker MV Lighting Issue

Though I am usually able to trouble shoot and fix these kinds of issues on my own, I can't seem to figure out the underlying problem behind this one. I was hoping someone here could help out.
I've been using the "Terrax Lighting" plugin as a major part of the visuals in my game for awhile now. Unfortunately, since the new RPG Maker MV update, there has been an issue with the lighting.
When I create a light radius around the player, if I have it any color other than white (#FFFFFF) then it seems to create another smaller light source around my character with the white coloring.
In this example, the light around my character is a red color. (#E74C3C) Because of the color change of the light source , there is a smaller, white light source around him too. This other light source is completely uncalled for in the programming and even does this when I'm using a completely blank map.
Unfortunately, I really think that the issue is in the Javascript rather than the game programming because this issue only started since the new update. Because I have little knowledge on JS, I don't know how to fix this.
Can anyone help out with this? If not, is there a chance I could speak with Terrax (If they're still around) or, is there a way I can UN-UPDATE my program to the previous version to stop this issue? Thank you for any help in advance.

Hi, I am following your videos tutorials serie about coding on MV and I am at the third video. Thank you for making it but's a bit hard to follow since you don't show the whole plugin at the end. I had to screenshot the lines between 110-159 because you scrolled so fast on them.
I'm not sure if I should be happy for MZ, or sad for MV.
Not going to lie.... The update's cool and all, but I immediately ran to Mog's site and was like, "Update! Update! Update!" while breathing on the page of his Star Ocean Battle System plugin. :kaoswt:
Ho boi. I can already see the storm of ugly actor faces RTP customizable facesets from MZ are gonna flood. XD
