One thing we noticed during the video, when we scrolled back in time and started the replay again was that a position that did not exist previously, then appeared.

We were not quite sure about this during the making of the video. We just Flattened the position, but we realized now why that happened.

When a replay is started, all of the existing order fills are loaded into an internal trade list in the chart. All of the replay order fills for the symbol from the earliest order fill, to the time that the replay is being started at, are loaded. If at that point in time, the fills indicate there is a Trade Position, then it will appear. This is the reason for this.

yes I'm aware, but since there are so many color settings, I'm afraid making the bg black manually might hide something else in the future and may cause problems, thats why i keep asking.

Sierra Chart Engineering - Posts: 91805 | Ending Date: 2021-04-05
We would not provide the main configuration file because it contains so many other settings which will change and not be what you want. We just simply would not provide that.

Also our configuration files that we use, are not really logical because there are many settings which are set a certain way for testing.

Although the default is a black background. Follow the instructions here to reset Sierra Chart to a default state:

Totally agree. SC is on track to being the best trading platform in terms of value and performance. It would be really helpful to have images or videos to explain questions where most are asking. This helps to reduce questions posted on the support board.

Another way is to outsource the video or images content creation to individuals to exchange for usage credit. Simply list the requirements and topics needed and many are happy to help.

We apologize for the long-delay. We are just working on text documentation with images. That is going to be better. We realize a video is not really appropriate. We should have just done this earlier.

Documentation will be ready in about three hours.

https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/helpdetails39.html

I'm confused by this statement. SC was never in a default state with a black background for me. Is this because I am an Infinity Futures (TransAct) customer? I have modified the colors myself to give me a black background but I definitely have missed certain elements at times which has been very frustrating. I would love to be able to set it to a "default" state with a black background. I don't see anything on that help page about doing this, and as I stated resetting to "defaults" did not set anything to a black background for me. Everything is on painfully-bright white.

The answer is yes to your first question. You really should tell Infinity that everything is "painfully bright white". We completely agree. Their defaults are hurting your eyes. They should consider that. White is not a good background color for them to be using and they are making a major mistake.

They should stop trying to please some people and use common sense.

I was so excited by this video because it appeared that finally market depth replay was going to behave properly, since your video shows it replaying exactly as it did live. But for me, it doesn't do that. I still get the jerky updating every 1 second no matter what. Why is this? Is there some additional setting somewhere that isn't set right? Obviously it's possible to get "real time" replay since you showed it, but I just can't figure out how to make it work. I'm running 2118. Any pointers you can share?

EDIT: Actually on closer examination, I think maybe your data is also playing back "in chunks" but since it's at 2x speed it's less obvious. I suppose the millisecond support that's been discussed as being in the works, is not quite ready yet?
