press numbers on the numpad, it'll turn the color box (top left) on the color of the team you are spawning/controlling.

I am having the same problem, I haven't been able to find a fix for it unfortunately. But if I find one, I will definently tell you. I feel like it has something to do with windows 10, but not exactly sure.

I finally solved it! You just need to press the fn key and the f key really fast! Note that I said really fast, I mean just hit them.

i have an issue on editor mode with texture i try to add a 3rd but it looks all screewed up like it doesnt blend on top of the other 2 textures? i have the grid textures then i added new one by copy of grid then i tried to add yet another one and the 3rd is not blending in to the other textures it shows squeres and corners instead of blending im sure this is a program issue so i also would like to know if this will be fixed in the near future ? or how can i fix this? is this the right place to add this issue in ?
