Note that there are two concepts: color sets, and the selected color  

*Both* may be specified using *either* MudWalker > Settings, or in a  
connection document. Settings in a connection document override  
settings for all of MudWalker.

If you modify a color set, trigger, alias, or any other setting, it  
overrides the more-general setting. To undo this for simple settings,  
the little circle by the setting has a menu from which you can select  
"Reset Setting". An overridden setting which appears in a list (such  
as a trigger or color set) can be completely reverted by the delete  
button; the inherited setting will replace it.

I don't know what exactly might be the problem, but I suggest  
selecting another color set (in the Display settings); if it's one  
particular color set that's the problem then delete it, or modify it.

I can't think of how background colors would be missing without text  
colors, though, unless your mud changed the color commands it sends.

Are you running the latest version of MudWalker?
