Color correction

Hey 3qual players,

Have you had trouble distinguishing the empty shapes from the lightly-shaded ones?
It's not because you are blind or your display is broken, and it's not because 3qual's designers are color blind. It's because we got fooled by a tricky bit of color management software.

An eagle-eyed played noticed that 3qual's colors were not consistent between different web browsers (Firefox vs Chrome vs Safari, Mac vs Windows). Upon investigation, we found that this was due to a "color profile" embedded in the game graphics, which was handled differently in different browsers.

We have removed the bogus color profile and we have published the corrected graphics file, so now 3qual will look (closer to) exactly the same no matter where you play, at home on your computer, or on the go on your phone.

(Technical notes: The "Cruise 2008" ColorSync profile was attached to the graphics. Now we know what dangers come from taking vacations! No more for us! Maybe...)
