The only thing I can suggest is to use a program called Mappie, if it is still around, and change the colors yourself.

Are you meaning the lines of the map are difficult to see on the beige background of the map window of the game? There are 2 solutions to the problem. One is to set your map to a fade level of 10. After you move the cursor off, it will fade out in a couple of seconds and the gray lines will be easier to see.

Another solution is to change the color of the map lines. Each line on the map appears like this in the map file .txt.

L -757, 707, -4, -755, 712, -4, 153, 153, 153

The L means it is a Line, the first 3 numbers are the starting coordinate, next 3 are the ending coordinate, and the last 3 are the line color. In this example, 153, 153, 153 is that gray color.

I use Notepad to open the file and then do a find and replace to change all 153, 153, 153 to 0, 0, 0. This changes it all to black. It is easy to see when the map is normal and when it is faded.

I hope this helps. :)
