  • This is not a bug.

    The layer background is blue when you save the game using savestate.

    You can change the background color in the project but once you load the it up again, the game loads the previous state you had saved on start.of.layout

    The save state had a blue color background, so what you see is correct.

    You will have to either override the saved state on the start of the layout, or change the background color in game with set.layer.backgroundcolor and then save it.

  • Closing as not a bug. It's working correctly, and restoring the background color at the time of the save. Savegames are the full game state and include everything, including layer properties.
