    Iguidance font colors

    I would like to create a theme for IG3 to match the standard centrafuse screens. In order to do this the font color has to change from white to black. Is this possible and if so how is it done? I am able to change the font size and style but cannot seem to find the font color anywhere.

    You can't do it in the Theme.ini file.
    You need to modify the .exe
    Look here.
    New THEME.INI available now :)

    Wow some people never cease to amaze me. A hex editor to modify the executable for font color? Brilliant!!

    I guess I wasn't clear in the first post.

    MGD thanks for the suggestion however I am trying to change all of the fonts in the menus not the font color for the street names. I would like to do something similar to justintimes Nexus skin except to have it match up with with the standard centrafuse skin. I find that the white menu text on the grey buttons does not show up well in the daylight.

    smeesseman thanks for the informative post, your insight is invaluable. I am not a programmer so perhaps I am not quite to your brilliant level but I am beginning with reshacker and photoshop and am trying my best to learn some new computer skills. I have used the hexeditor to look at the .exe but I do not read hex and the programs I have tried do not convert the values to anything I can understand. Perhaps you could point me in the right direction seeing as this seems to be simple for you.

    I was just quoting the post by MGD. I actually didn't give any insight on this , can't take credit for that... I was just commenting that it amazes me that these things get figured out, like the hex location of the font color within the executable. Explained shortly all it is is the RGB value of the fonts used, and somebody found the location of where it was embedded into the executable file...

    ok, in that case sorry for the sarcastic remarks, i took your comments as though they should be common knowledge, similar to all the USE THE SEARCH posts In my searches it appears that the font colors I am looking for must be in that exe somewhere however white seems to be FF FF FF which is of course way too common to find unless there are way better hex editors than the free versions I have been trying.
