Can we finally get some support for colorblind players?

This is an option in almost every single game, and I’ve seen threads in the past asking about this very thing.

Following scratch marks and blood is extremely difficult as everything starts to blend in to surroundings.

I know myself and many other people would greatly appreciate this option.

    I feel for you guys, hopefully as time goes they can get this sorted out, but must be difficult in a game like this where visuals are limited and colors are specific to design.

    Usually when this comes up, people will start hand-wringing over how people will somehow cheat with it and make blood puddles into disco balls and scratch marks into police lights or something.

    It's true, though. I'm not even strongly colorblind and I still use a filter to make reds into another color, just because of how red will blend into other colors sometimes. (And when I posted a screenshot once, someone told me I was cheating, of course)

    Honestly so what if it's used by non-color blind people to gain an advantage? Then we would finally have something like SWF has with no drawbacks. It's not like it makes you extremely better, it's just easier tracking. Everything else is still on the killer player. And it helps those who are actually color blind.

    Tbh it’s not even that easy to see blood puddles and (depending on the environment/map) the scratch marks when you are not color blind. At least for me, could be because of other seeing defects though.

    and yeah I am still for a color blind mode even though I think others could abuse it. If it’s way to easy, those new colors should be dimmed down accordingly or something.. I think the mobile version has some kind of colorblind mode?

    As a colorblind player, I am 100% ok with not getting changes to blood because I recognize that could be unfair. HOWEVER, I would LOVE to get the option to turn all glowing red auras/scratchmarks to blue. It would be so much easier to see the damn things, and unlike blood, it's SUPPOSED to be visible when it's glowing. This would be a fair change that wouldn't give anyone an undue advantage. If the tradeoff is we don't get blood, I'm all for it.

    yep, SWF can have voice comms and "we just playing with friends"

    a literally person with a physical issue that stops them from seeing certain colors, = cheating.

    so lame.

    I agree. Blood doesn’t seem to be too noticeable even if I wasn’t colorblind but changing scratch marks to blue would make my life as killer 10x easier and more enjoyable.

    Am I the only one who almost never looks for blood anyway?

    On a lot of maps, you just can't see the ground in the first place. On others, you really can't differentiate it from other variances in the textures.

    Some maps they're ok, but I almost never get much value out of stopping to look.

    Ask again in 2 years when bhvr milked another 50 million dollars with new content.

    Only maps I can really see blood is on the indoor maps and even then it doesn’t seem like it’s too reliable of a tracking tool.

    Personally I can't even see the blood. It's so difficult to distinguish that I don't even pay attention to it. I just try my hardest to follow scratches, but even that's difficult sometimes.

    I hope they add something eventually, but considering how old this game is already? Kinda seems like they just don't care about colorblind players enough to fix it lol

    I have heard that Windows 10's accessibility options has a filter you can put over DBD to make scratch marks much easier to see. I'm not color blind, but one of the streamers I watch somewhat regularly is and they use it all the time.

    That said, I do think colorblind options should be added to the game... and not as perks (looking at you Shadowborn and Bloodhound).
