This is the same thing as the AHK script someone posted about, it's just that these people like using colors, and using whatever keys he said. So, I could argue, since retexturing is allowed, I should be able to retexture, say, the trigger for Onionsan skip, or really, any skip in general.

There's a difference between a general color mod, or a music mod, and modding the game specifically so that it facilitates skips. This is a big "no" in my book. We'll see what other mods think about it.

There's a difference between just rebinding keys with AHK, and setting scroll wheel to mash fast. While I do NOT want this to be allowed, it follows the same path as this: http://www.speedrun.com/undertale/thread/5d8v3

"You could do this harmless scripting, but someone could argue that you can rebind z to scroll"

the reason color mod is allowed is because it does not affect gameplay, editing the controls affects gameplay in which you are making a skip easier than normally which is why alot of games do not allow that and this game should not be otherwise.

But all it is is a texture mod! I could say that the whimsun color helps you to identify it faster (to spare)
Point is, texture modes are surely allowed it seems.

The color mod made by Pr3tz3l does not give runners any type of advantage (regardless of any case you make to argue this), which is why it's allowed.

Editing sprites specifically to give yourself an advantage or an outside, permanent visual queue for a PCE skip, or any skip for that matter, is forbidden. It's effectively cheating.

What advantage does rebinding your keys to whatever he said?
(this is stupid why did i do this)

As OP of the AHK thread I feel like I should chime in. What I was asking about for AHK was not to make it easier, it was to simply make the trick POSSIBLE on my keyboard. The community talked about it and we agreed it should not be allowed in the case that someone abuses the privilege.

I think it's cool that we can add our own "flair" to our runs with music and colour mods, let's not lose that with blatant cheating (making skips visual/differentiating between whimsum).

The point of a speedrun is to set out a challenge and then accomplish it, not to set out a challenge and cheese your way past it.

tl;dr: Don't cheat with colours, they're pretty so just use them to make things pretty.
