Chat Formatting // Colors, Bold, Underline

Chat Formatting

By Jelly


Today I’m bringing you a small and short guide/informational post.

There are some posts that exist about typing in color in the chat. Although they aren’t the best, and there are some things left out. Recently I was digging through the code in the chat resource and I found some things that I didn’t know existed, and AFAIK aren’t well known.


Colors:

^1 // Red Orange

image

^2 // Light Green

^3 // Light Yellow

^4 // Dark Blue

^5 // Light Blue

^6 // Violet

^7 // White

^8 // Blood Red

^9 // Fuchsia


Other Formatting:

^* // Bold

^_ // Underline

^~ // Strikethrough

^= // Underline + Strikethrough

^*^= // Bold + Underline + Strikethrough

^r // Cancel Formatting


And that’s it!

Update: Colors fixed, thanks to @Vespura for catching my error. :smile:

Update +1: Adjustments to formatting to make it easier to see the actual codes. Also a new picture was added for the red orange.

Update +2: Fixed the first picture.

Nice formatting on the forums lol.

A tutorial isn’t a spot to advertise your server… so, I removed that.

You must be using either an outdated or custom chat resource…
Because the latest version of the official chat resource uses different color codes:

Hmm, I might have switched something up by accident. I’ll fix it.

Whoops. Sorry about that.

Hey man, Do you know the RGBA color codes for these?

Sorry, I have no idea, you can use a color picker with a browser plugin though. :stuck_out_tongue:

Or just open the chat resource files and check the hex color codes and convert them.

Or yeah I was gunna say you can just look in the chat files, pretty much what I did here for this post.

So if i wanted to make it colored and bold would i do ^*^2 or ^2^8

^*^2 would be the one you would use

My zaphost settings says its illegal character When i use *

In that case create a support ticket with zap, they’ll be able to help you with zap specific configurations.
