Text Style - font color
Hey there!

It's a stupid question, but... how do I change the font color in the chat box that's included in the MMO Source? I'd like to have different font colors for different types of messages (proximity, shout, group, etc).

I've been trying to load it in many different ways and it always stays white...

Cheers,
Kiekos

Did you load a new text style, or did you try and change it through code?

You will notice that in the MMO, there is the "white", "white small", "white small left" etc, text styles. I believe for the chat, it uses the standard white small one.

I've tried both - changing through code with Gui.ts_text.color=GREEN; as well as creating new text styles such as "green.txds" or "green small.txds" and loading them before drawing the message by calling both Gui.ts_text.load(path); and ts.load(path); (if I remember correctly) with absolutely no effects... Still white as it was.

Client->Messages [lines 27-38]
Code:
ChatMessages& create()
   {
      super.create();

      margin=0.01;

      ts.reset();
      ts.scale=0.05;
      ts.align.set(1, -1);

      return T;
   }

In here, you can set something like:

Code:
ts.color = RED;

I checked this, and it turns the whole message, including username, red.

Hmm, funny thing. I've tried doing ts.load(path); exactly over there and it didn't work. I'll try changing color like that when I get home, thanks!



Yep, that works! Thanks a lot, Dwight! Right now I will only have to rewrite some sending functions to get everything working as I wanted it to, but that's what I needed. smile
