John,You can change it using commands in your "flt3.cfg" file (in your FU3 root folder). If you haven't done so already, please download and try Rob Driscoll's updated cfg file - it'll make a HUGE difference.Anyway, this is from "readme.wri" on the installation disc:"marquee_text, marquee_background & marquee_border-- these set the color of the marque text (radio messages), and take r,g,b triplet arguments where r, g and b have to be in the range 0 through 255. For example: marquee_text 0 255 0 marquee_background 255 0 255 marquee_border 255 255 0would give you bright green text on a purple background with a yellow border." (Yuck :-lol )So, insert the 3 lines above (with the colours set as you would like) into you cfg file, somewhere just after 'startup' and before 'options'.Have fun :-waveRegards,Jon Point (in S.E. China ATM...)
