    First of all, thanks for Afterburner, it's really a great programm and I love using it


    But I think I came across a bug, I tried to change the color of the graphs to seperate CPU, GPU, RAM, etc. better - but it doesn't work for me, no color change is applied, even restarting afterburner or the PC doesn't change the color from green to anything else

    Could you take a look at theis or try it yourself? Also on my laptop it's not working too, so I guess it's a general bug? Would be great if other people could try it too ;)

    Would be very glad if it would get fixed with the next update/version of afterburner

    Yours Chris

    If you don't layer a graph with another that color setting won't be used. Logic is fun, isn't it?

    Sorry I don't get it, as you can see in the attached picture, I changed the graph color to magenta and it's still displayed in green?

    In my opinion the graph on the right should be magenta with my settings from the picture?

    In my opiniopn you should read context help for that option before claiming that it is bugged. Andy correctly said you that it only affects layered graphs.

    Ok, I think I may found the main problem here, the German translation which I'm using normally just says "color of graph" so I thought I just need to change the color to display some of the graphs on the right in an other color
    (i was just using the English interface for the screenshot) - therefore it looked buggy to me, but it's actually the translation which is kinda wrong

    So to bring this to an end, is there an option available to change the color of all GPU associated graphs to one color (e.g. green --> magenta) and all CPU associoated graphs to an other color (e.g. green --> blue)?

    Thx

    Could it be that you do not realize that these setting affect the OSD graphs and not the msi hardware-monitor-window as your picture show? These colors are coded in the skin and only changeable there.
