MM8BDM Text Color Guide

Bigger version:

Old version:

This is a chart I assembled containing a variety of custom text colors. Included are the 22 basic colors, everything from Fuzzball's Text Color PK3 over on the Zandronum forums.

To type in color text, add \cX, with X being any lowercase letter between A through V.

All colors on the second row and lower require you to close the letter/number code within brackets [] after typing c. So \c[c1] would give you color C1, \c[i4] would give color I4, and so on. If the color code you enter is invalid (or you don't have the necessary pk3(s) installed and loaded), the text will be in cl's color. You must not capitalize any letter in the color code, or else it will not work.

Spaces are not required to be put in-between the color codes as they are not visible to other players once the message is sent (only signaling where the text becomes colored beyond where the code is typed), so typing \chMegaman will display Megaman, and typing \cgProto\cuMan gives ProtoMan.

If making a bind, you must type "\" twice before specifying a color's ID to choose a color. So for instance you'd have to type the above example as \\cgProto\\cuMan to have it display correctly.

To always have Fuzzball's custom colors present on all servers including those that don't have the pk3 loaded, simply put the text color pk3 into your Skins folder.

This is actually pretty useful, even if I don't like the new text colors.

I'd sticky it if I could.

I agree, this is an easy-to-read, easy-to-follow guide to all the custom colors floating around.


Thanks!

This takes all the guess work of using the colours. Thanks, Justin. Seriously though, I usually have to scroll through all the colour codes and go through trial 'n error before I find one I like.

Question. On the bottom row, when it says the numbers, I type in c5test and it says "c5test." Is that the right way to use it?

No, you should've put c[5]test. If it works like the others, that is.

No, I found out the problem. It doesn't work with the new version.

The only servers that have the colors in the bottom two rows available are Lobstacle Course and Unholy Bosses. Most servers nowadays have the 170-colors wad, so you should always be able to use them in most of the more populated Best Ever servers.

Updated to add in the 50 new colors Fuzzball added to the .pk3.
Since my PC is currently acting up, Fr3akGamer decided to help me out and screen cap the new colors.

New version is in the OP, also removed the Obstacle Cource colors since the colors are exclusive to it and it only (though the old version is still available).
