[Tool] Rainbow Filter (Item Highlighting)

This is fantastic!

Just remove tags_ui.txt file from .Grim Dawn\settings\text_en folder.

Hi there
This tool has been made with electron.js, if i’m not mistaking. Could you compile a linux version of it ? As a linux user it would be great to use your tool as i want to make a custom filter.
Thanks by advance

I’m afraid it won’t be as simple as that. The tool is using executables that come with the game and there could be other conflicts beyond that, because I never intended for other platforms to use this. I also can’t test it at the moment and I won’t upload something I don’t know is going to work.

I might compile it and send you a link to try it out.

I totally understand that you rely on windows executable dependencies. And it makes sense. Don’t worry about it. Just keep on the good work, i’ll try to write some code down to easily customize the filter as i just want to highlight some items.

Second and last preview for v0.4.0. I plan on uploading the new version over the weekend.

Mastery Marker

As mentioned in a previous post, I’m currently working on new Rainbow Tool features and as such adding a Mastery text after the skill name as requested some time ago. The uploaded preset files won’t have these texts added, because I don’t intend to force it on anyone who doesn’t want it.

You can find the new section Mastery Marker on the left hand side navigation and make all the wanted changes from there. The possible options currently are the Mastery Name after the Skill Name and the usual colors. It is possible to use both, one of the two or neither. This is a global setting, which means the program will save your selections alongside any selected Filter. Global availability also means Special Highlighting will affect Skill Texts and they’ll take priority over colors set inside the Mastery Marker.

Note: Coloring only affects your active Masteries, the game overrides inactive Masteries in grey.



A Version number for Rainbow Tool and the targeted Grim Dawn release will be shown on the ToolTip for the button opening the in-game Filter Window. This should make it easier to keep track of the currently active version and allow everyone to check if their update worked as planned.



Program Overhaul

Wanez Tools got a new look, the default window frame is part of the past and it will now be minimized to System Tray as many other programs do when using the close button inside the app. However, there is a difference to most apps out there. The different ways to close a program in windows are still viable, which means you can quickly close Rainbow Tool with Alt+F4 if you don’t want to click on Quit inside the Tray Menu.

If you’re wondering why you would want the program to continue running after creating your filter… . Well, things might change with some new features in the future or have already changed with the addition of Special Highlighting. You will also be able to start the game with v0.4.0. Starting the game is also possible through the Tray Menu.

Note: Starting the game will try doing so with Grim Internals first, if no Grim Internals was possible to run, it then starts the regular game. (Let me know of any issues)


Rainbow Tool updated to v0.4.0

Tool updates itself, if you don’t have the tool yet, you can find the link in the First Post or on GitHub.

If you cannot see the new sections (Special Highlighting/Mastery Marker) upon loading the new version for the first time, try a reload (F5).

There is a potential fix for a reported error, however, since I cannot reproduce it, I cannot test it.

Happy Bug Hunting!


Hi, does diablo highlighting also works on items in inventory ? Because last time i checked this tool it didn’t. Fonts were fine but items still had their original grim dawn colored backgrounds when in inventory leading to a lot of confussion where background was yellow but item was actually blue (magic)

Is there any tool to remove those color backgrounds ?

If you’re willing to make the mod yourself, it is fairly simple to change/remove the backgrounds, but it is a different process than what this mod does.

I have the same issue. Did you find a fix for it?

Does this work with cloud saves turned on?

How do you uninstall this?


Delete the files or use the remove button inside the tool, depending which way you choose to install it.

Files updated for Grim Dawn v1.1.5.2

You can find all downloads in the First Post or on GitHub.

Tool doesn’t need an update, only updating the files because of the new item fixes that came with Rainbow Tool v0.4.0.


@WareBare you’re doing god’s work. Thank you! :bowing_man:

thanks man!

Fast update. Rockin’ it!

Quick update, thank you sir!!

Does it work for Portuguese language?

The tool should work with any language, let me know if it is having trouble with Portuguese.

I made a quick test and nothing wrong with it as far as I can tell.

I’m not really familiar with coding of any sort, and I find the tool to be a bit confusing.

I’m wondering if anyone has customized a version of the Diablo / PoE version that doesn’t rainbow the stuff, but just uses the “traditional” colors. I like the affixes being rainbowed, but not the names.

So what I’m looking for, is Epics being fully purple, Legendaries being fully orange, etc, whilst the affixes are all color coded when I mouse over the loot. I’m willing to do it myself if I knew how to. Sorry if this isn’t the place to post this.
