Yes, yes, I know, the beta wouldn't have had that screen. However, seeing as I can't remove the screen in any way, I decided to use it.

Let's load it up in game...

Oh, something's wrong here, somehow I managed to use the wrong colours for parts of it. Never mind, I'll just scribble around with black for a bit and we'll see...

...Clearly I screwed up. Alright, I'll use the colour picker from an area that is working, and...


Alright, onto other things. This is what I've got for the login screen:

Looks great! Alright, let's load it up in game and see-




Alright, I honestly have no idea what I did to achieve that. I probably messed up with palettes or something. I'll have to look into this.

Either way, I'll be getting back to the actual beta stuff soon, don't worry. Expect a screenshot batch within the next couple of weeks.
