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.

|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)

yea you do the |CFF000000 They always have the FF in it...i think it is transparency also
I don't think that it is fully supported either....since I have tried it once and it really didn't work as intended.
 
just use a programm for it ... its the easy way :fwink

and with the programms u can make many colors in one word ... or rainbow colors... u would need hours to make this by ur own :/

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
