    This is where you will be told how to make colors in your wc3 maps.

    |c is the common start for all colors. YOU MUST HAVE IT!!!!
    |r is the closing for all color fonts, this is used to go like this
    HELLO

    |c##%%$$text|r This is how you create a color text.
    ## stands for Red
    %% stands for Green
    $$ stands for Blue
    U can replace ##, %%, or $$ to a-f or 5-9
    ff stands for full. the lower the letter is in the alphabit it is darker, same with numbers.

    so therefor |cff0000 is red
    |c00ff00 is Green
    |c0000ff is Blue.
    |c000000 is black and so on. you can replace all of the number for any f-a 5-9.

    So if you ever wondered how they made the colors in the custom games, here you go :D If you havwe any questions pm me :rollie

    Thanks for that, I'll link that up in the Tutorial section, and you can get numerous color programs, but you could always use your own and open a browser and get a list of hexadecimal color codes, but the programs have a neat feature of fading.

    Thanks again.

    I wrote this a while ago.. But it still has some good information:
    http://war3forum.worldofwar.net/showthread.php?t=18890

    Was it changed recently?
    It used to be:
    |cff0055ffcolor|r
    c for color start, r for color end
    ff to define something (I cannot remember)
    then the hex for each color mix...

    |c000000 is black
    |c00000000 is black too but with 0 transparency. The first two hexidecimal digits represent transparency. Usually you want those to either be left out or to be blank altogether.

    I think |cff000000 is transparent? or is it the other way around... :p

    Last two digits represent transparency.

    At least that's what my old dusty RoC for Dummies says.

    I have always left the first 2 as ff, which is what Blizzard does... That probably means that the first 2 represent Opacity (Transparency)

    I don't think that it is fully supported either....since I have tried it once and it really didn't work as intended.

    Thanks for this....Is there any program that automatically executes this code for faster usage?

    Edit: Does this work also in you Alias at Lan games? Just like what Garena do to the premium players Alias
