How to add color to your name

Post by wwbiteme » Wed Nov 17, 2010 2:54 pm

Ok I have had a few people ask how to add color to their name. There are 2 ways to do this. These are:

Option 1:

Click the ~ key as if you were going to chat.
type: /setaname (then type the ^ (shift 6) and pick a number.
then type letters. every time you want to change a color type the ^ and a number again.

So for example my name would be: /setaname ^1WW_^2BITEME!!

Then hit enter when done and i should change.

Option 2:

The other way to hit the L key as if you were going to change your player type. you will notice near the top you will see your name. you want to delete what is there and type you name as entioned in option 1.
Example again would be: ^1WW_^2BITEME!!

The number/colors are:
0 = BLACK
1 = RED
2 = GREEN
3 = YELLOW
4 = BLUE
5 = LIGHT BLUE
6 = violet
7 = WHITE

The colors look like this in-game:

Also a nice tip for those who are unfamiliar with Q3 game engine (which is also used for Wild West) is names with spaces which can be made this:

Press ~
Write /name "Hijo is bald"
Press enter and enjoy your name with spaces! 8)

Naturally, you can add colors that way too, just use the tags which Biteme wrote in post above mine :)

For some reason, this only works in the stand-alone. You can't put spaces in the /name command if using the mod with RtCW.. not sure why..

Gunte, I've started up the game and put those color tags like ^11 ^22 ^gg and ^cc etc, but all came up were pretty much the default colors - these extra colors work only when connected to server?

I dont know about how it works off and online. Perhaps it works better if you use a script. I have a scipt:

/exec b.cfg

then i can get all the colors i want.

haha Weird! If I typed that, my new name would be "a"... everything after the first space is chopped off. That's why sometimes I play as El_Stupido .. :D
