Where are colours used
In Enemy Territory you can use colours in two specific cases :
- In your nickname
- In everything related with chat messages
How the colours system works
To specify a colour, you have to write the text with a particular "key", that will make the game wait for the colour code. This key is :
The letter or number or symbol that follow this key, is considered by the game engine as the key of the colour you want to use in your messages.
Colours reference table
Updated version of the first colour table. More readable and easier on the eyes. Contains all PunkBuster save variations with color values straight from the game.
If you write:
The text next of it will be drawn in red colour. This is the same if you write, like shown in the table:
Another example is:
^4 or ^T or ^t
all these 3 codes will select the colour blue for the text written after it.

If you want to see the colours of your teammates when you point to them, set this variable in this way: cg_drawcrosshairnames 2
In NQ 1.1.0 this is set "0" as default, so the names are shown in White.
