Hi guys, I did search for this topic so I apologize if I'm bringing up a repeat topic.

 

One of my clan mates plays on a Mac and he has never seen the colored zones that indicate where the armor can or cannot be penned. We compared settings with my PC and we didn't see anything that was obviously different. He's been playing for some time now and he's never seen the hit skin colors. 

Has anyone encountered this issue? Does anyone have any advice? Could this be related to a video setting being set too low?

 

Thanks

I'll ask him.

 

No, he asked me when I posted a screenshot on Discord. But that would explain the camo pants and plaid shirt.

^^^

 

I have played on the mac a few times, it is no different than pc, or mobile, when it comes to the highlights when you aim at enemy tanks.

I have the game on my Mac as well as my iPad.
 

. It it’s the same hitskin, the Graphics are way better - but if he hasn’t seen the hitskin he’s blind or color blind.

Increasing the graphics settings may be of some help if he is only partially colorblind, or at least it did with me. On a low settings hitskins did not show up but on a max settings they sometimes will. Even when the red color isn’t present that part of the tank may appear darker. I think that on a max setting the colors may sometimes be more saturated. I find it helpful - but no substitute for memorizing armor profiles and recon by fire.

I have never once seen this either on Mac or iPhone.

Da fuq? How’s that possible? There’s not even a setting to turn off hit skins. Trolls?

Well he’s really not color blind at all. When I show him screenshots from my PC he can very easily see the colors. The color blind part of the thread was a joke early on. Graphics are dependent on the graphics card and the monitor, not the OS. I’m glad that folks with Mac do see what I see on my iPad and my PC. 
 

I suggested that he re-install first and then we can go and look at his graphics settings. I Was kind of hoping that maybe another Mac user had seen this issue and had already figured out what it was.

 

Thanks as always for taking the time guys. Happy hunting.

Oh wait is he not seeing them because he's playing realistic mode?

Or maybe he doesn’t zoom in.
