Most of you old TM players knows how to use color tags, but for those that doesnt know, this is a great way to learn
First off, lets look at a basic tag:
Every tag, no matter color or formatting, has a dollar sign in front of them, all the tags applies to the text right of the dollar sign.
Formatting tags has 8 different functions:
$g: default color
$z: reset all
$t: Changes the text to capitals
$$: Writes a dollarsign
Input: $iTrackmania$$---output: Trackmania$
Input: $wChicken---------output: c h i c k e n
Color codes are not that hard to use
Don't worry, you'll understand
ok, first, you need to know hex (Hexadecimal).
Hex is a value system where you can go over 10 using one number/letter.
Here are the values for all the hex numbers:
Code: Select all
Thats the numerical system.
lets have a look at a normal color code:
As you can see, you have a dollar sign here too.
RGB, red, green and blue.
Its this simple:
Replace the R with the amount of red you want in the color using hex numbers.
Replace the G with the amount of green you want in the color using hex numbers.
Replace the B with the amount of blue you want in the color using hex numbers.
F is the most, and 0 is the least.
The closer to 0, the darker the color gets.
The closer to F, the brighter the color gets.
Input: $f00Trackmania-------output: Trackmania
Input: $d00Trackmania------output: Trackmania
Input: $900Trackmania------output: Trackmania
Input: $600Trackmania------output: Trackmania
Input: $fa0BLaHiTis----------output: BLaHiTis
Input: $0ffNADEO------------output: NADEO
How to code a gradient:
if you want a gradient from red to blue, you have to decrease the red value, and increase the blue value for each letter.
For red: $f00
For blue: $00f
If you start with red, write the tags in this order (with the letters between):
I chose to lower the value by 2 each time.
Of course you can use other colors as gradients, but it's all about increasing and/or decreasing a value.
Input: $0a0H$0b0e$0c0l$0d0l$0e0o-----output: Hello
You can also mix color tags with formatting tags:
Input: $i$d00Trackmania----output: Trackmania
Input: $00fTrack$imania----output: Trackmania
Thats about it!
