During scanning, probes are moved by dragging "handle" arrows. Unfortunately, these arrows are often hard to pick out from the background (example: this and this).

This problem is particularly acute for color-blind players.


Change color of probe movement handles so they contrast better with backgrounds.

If possible, slowly pulse the handles to provide an additional visual cue.

Color-blind users would also appreciate the ability to disable the background completely.


  • ease of use; accessibility.


  • none.
