It is possible to customize the appearance of VisualTouch through adding a few settings to its options.txt file. This allows you to define your own colour scheme and also define a fixed set of servers that the VisualTouch user can choose from.

You can find the options.txt file in the following location: My Documents\Visual Productions\VisualTouch   you can edit this file using any standard text-editor like Notepad.

You can add any of the following lines:

colour_main_pen           0xff0000
colour_main_brush        0x000000
colour_dialog_pen         0x00ff00
colour_dialog_brush     0xffffff
colour_dialog_font      0x0000ff


the colour codes like 0xff0000 is hexadecimal and in the format 0xRRGGBB.

for example:
0xff0000   defines red
0x000000   defines black
0x0000ff   defines blue


You can also replace the 'Server' settings (manual IP and Port selection) in the options window by a simple selection list of predefined servers which makes switching between different servers faster and more user-friendly. To do so, add the following text to the options.txt file:

server_short_list
{
   server
   {
      label   "example_server"
      ip   "192.168.1.4"
      port   16495
   }
   server
   {
      label   "example_laptop"
      ip   "192.168.1.231"
      port   16495
   }
}
