Every thing is dark grey at me (editor, desktop and so on), except construct 2

I remember making this suggestion and getting completely owned =)

http://www.scirra.com/forum/customizing-constructs-colors_topic56580.

Anytime I write code for anything I always set my IDE to some soft of darker background so my eyes do not melt and drip out of my head.

Absolutely agree with this post.

Yeah, would be nice.

Since the IDE is using the Fluent User Interface, maybe Scirra should try DotNetBar from DevComponents.

They have all the Office themes, a few cool custom themes, Visual Studio 2012 inspired themes, and they work on any Win version from XP onward. The themes can all be made easily customisable for the end-user out of the box, or can be tweaked by the developer to look they way they want.

They are very competitively priced, support is excellent, they release updates\bug fixes every Friday, and the forums are very lively if you need additional support.

Who knows you just may find the bugs causing all the C2 crashes in the process....

If it can be done, someone on the web will show you how to do it!

+1 for increased contrast between text and background. #666 is just too light for the text - and ClearType antialising makes it effectively lighter still.
