Hi guys,

I'm working with Stencyl on PC and Mac, and on this one, the grid color is the same of the background color.

Very difficult to work with this problem. Solution ?

Also, are you talking about in the Scene Designer, Tileset Editor, etc.?

He's right. I've had the same problem on my end, which is why I don't use it at the moment. Maybe there should be an option to set the grid color when using that feature?

Or just set grid color to not(color of pixel in background).

There are no impossible things. There is only lack of skills.

I thought Greg had done XORing to make the grid show up, but maybe not.

I did, so this is kind of surprising.  First I've heard of this, and I thought we had some other Mac testers verify it. 

edit: Looks like there is code that specifically checks if it's OSX and doesn't do the XOR mode.  I don't remember adding this in so we'll have to find out who did (Jon?). Maybe it was to prevent another issue. 

edit 2: Looks like it was causing the scrolling/rendering to happen very slowly in the Scene Designer for Mac users.  Here's the comment: "Turns out this is a bug only on Mac in the Java runtime. I'm gonna turn off XOR drawing for Mac users."

Greg, maybe some routine that's executed only on Mac overrides grid drawing color?

The explicit grid color seems like a better idea to me, but unlikely to happen for 1.2.
