Hey, wow, so, it's been a while.

I installed RMXP again and it's doing this with the background on materials:
Content Hidden

It doesn't affect the functionality but it's distracting and obnoxious.

It changes to a random color when I make a new project, but only temporarily. It always ends up back at purple eventually so I can't even cheese it by making new projects to try to roll the default color.
Tried running as admin, in XP compatability mode, reinstalling in a new location outside of Program Files, all to no effect. The "transparent color" setting in the options only changes the color of the border region of the map view; it has no effect on any of the material displays.

Found a thread on another forum where someone had the same problem(theirs was red instead of purple) but didn't see any solutions posted.

What do I do

Edit -
Found a download for the v1.04 trial and installed+activated through that and the problem is gone so I guess EB broke something in 1.05? I'm gonna try to locate a changelog and see if there's any important changes or fixes I'd be missing I guess

Edit 2 -
Figured out exactly what's going on - 1.05's transparent color setting is being applied to the map view's background instead of the material background. gg Enterbrain

The transparent colour is based on something in Windows which in turn is based on your theme settings. It's annoying, but a reason I always use the default themes in Windows.

RMXP 1.02 is what got me interested in game dev and I thought I knew the program better than most people.
But I have never seen that window in my life.

After all these years, I never once clicked Tools > Options.

My mind has been blown.
