Default Got CRT?

I have some advice for CRT users. Especially if you are using an old CRT monitor this will help.

You should go to the color settings using the monitor OSD settings (buttons on monitor).

If you can select the "color temp", set it to "manual", "custom" or "user". By default this setting is mostly set to "9300k".

Then go the the RGB settings. Sligtly increase the "B" (Blue) channel.

You colors will look better. White will look whiter. Older monitors turn yellow over time, this will help.
I noticed black and grey will look much better, too.

May take some time to get used to. Try increasing it a little. Then use it for a day and set the color preset to "9300k" and see how bad it looks, lol.

You can also increase the "R" (Red) channel and see what it does, but it will probably just make it look all "yellowish" again.
