    I've been using @iluvfuz 's VS2015 blue theme since I got GMS2, mainly because I don't like the default green accent of the standard skin and also for its cleaner design. Unfortunately it's not maintained anymore and breaks some things (like not being able to get a list of runtimes in preferences).

    So I've made a little mod of the default GMS2 dark skin, giving it the accent color of the VS2015 blue variation.
    I've only touched some color values, included iluvfuz's cursors and edited a couple of icons, so presumably it shouldn't break anything.

    I also made a purple-ish code editor highlighting scheme. If you want to use that too, please back-up the "local_settings.json" file from the "C:\Users\<Username>\Appdata\Roaming\GameMakerStudio2\<User>" folder.

    To install the theme, extract the archive into the "C:\ProgramData\GameMakerStudio2\Skins" folder.
    Re-launch the IDE and navigate to File->Preferences->General and select "GMS2blue" from the "IDE skin" dropdown.

    Awesome work! Wish there was a skins category in the marketplace so more people would do this. :D

    I think I'll also switch to blue... blue is more "calming" l
    Nice work, thanks!

    Not sure what's going on, I don't have the same code editor colors, resource menus are grey not blue.

    Edit: I created a background for the workspace that I think matches well.

    To use the code editor scheme, first backup the "settings.json" file in the "C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\GameMakerStudio2\<user_id>" folder.
    Then in GMS2 IDE navigate to File->Preferences->Text Editors->Code Editor and press Restore Defaults. You may need to close and re-launch the IDE and then you'll see the new scheme.

    About the resource menu text colors: This is something you do inside the IDE. File->Preferences->Resource Tree->Colours.
