I was colorizing the Flatland theme with a copy of it's files. It in turn is based on the Soda theme.
However, whereas the Flatland dark and Soda dark can show "black" backgrounds for the text input, I am stuck with some off white color (around 230 rgb).
I have compared my file to flatland, and even checking each different line I'm not able to solve this.
I have tried to use layer0 tint command -- It doesn't work either. As you'll see in the photo the layer0 tint colors only the part that the file.png is at. It's basically a border around the text input which is not correct.
In an attempt to debug this problem I tried pasting my theme code into the Soda file and activating soda dark in my preferences. Even using word for word all my code in the theme file, the text input is still black like it's supposed to be in soda. So where the heck is this being controlled from? It's obviously not the theme file and I'd like some help figuring this out, because I am just desperately OCD annoyed at this point.

Here is what it looks like when I activate Flatland Dark but having pasted all the code in my .sublime-theme into it's .sublime-theme: imgur.com/vpyrE4q
Honestly I just don't get it. And it's really annoying me. I hope someone can help me out -- it's driving me insane! Hahah
