In CoDUO, one has the ability to add colors to his/her name ingame.
Many however still don't know the little secrets behind them.
For this, I will explain:
How to add a color:
For example your name is "Eddie".
With nothing added, it will appear in your teamcolor in the chatbox,
kill-log and the kill-message. It will appear in white while
watching the scoreboard.
To add color, you type "^" followed by a number ranging from 1 to 9.
Each number will give you a different color.
^1 = red
^2 = green
^3 = yellow
^4 = blue
^5 = light blue
^6 = purple
^7 = no effect
^8 is a color that changes depending what level you are on.
American maps = Dark Green
Russian maps =Dark red/marroon
British maps = Dark Blue
^9 = grey
^0 = black (only works as special effect)
So back to our example, if you should type "^1Eddie", your name will
become red. However this will only affect your name in the
scoreboard and kill-message. It is possible to add multiple colors
to your name! So for example: "^1E^2dd^1ie". This will make the
"E" red, the "dd" green", and the "ie" will turn red again. Again, this
will only affect your name in the scoreboard and kill-message.
NOTE: This also works in Binds and gamechat.
You have to follow the same steps to add colors.
How to add special effects:
As described above, the effect only appears in the scoreboard
and the kill-message an other player receives on his bottom-screen
when he kills you. However there is a way to also make it appear in
the kill-log and the gamechat. One must note that it will your name
in the scoreboard and kill-message will have an other appearance.
So back to Eddie, typing the following: "^^11Eddie". This will result
showing "Eddie" in red in the gamechat and kill-log. However in
the scoreboard and kill-message,
it will show your name as "^1Eddie". One cannot remove the
"^1" as it will remove your effect in the gamechat and kill-log.
Yet in all these mentioned, your name will appear in red.
Again the same numers apply to the same color as stated above.
NOTE: you can only add the color black to your name using this
Now there is one more little effect that few people know of.
Let's go back to Eddie.
If I should type "^^12Eddie", it would give the following result:
In the scoreboard and kill-message, it will show "^^2Eddie" in red.
However in gamechat and kill-log, it will say "Eddie" in green!
So the first color will affect your scoreboard and kill message.
However the "^2" will remain. But in gamechat and kill log,
it will show the second color which is green.
