      Description

      There is a very irritating issue concerning sign colors and graphics cards. When playing on an Intel HD graphics card, the sign colors are as they should be; very vibrant and easy to read. When playing on a NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX, the colors appear faded and are almost unreadable.

      There have been bug reports similar to this in the past, however it was written off as the end user's responsibility to pick colors that are readable from the faded ones.

      With this issue, users are faced with a tradeoff.

      • Use their built in Intel graphics
        • Get lower fps
        • Read colored signs that most multiplayer severs use
      • Use a better graphics card such as NVIDIA
        • Dramatically increase fps and display
        • Can't read signs

      All other color displays (chat, books, etc) work as intended except for signs.
