How to change font colour

Fri Jan 18, 2019 3:36 pm

Is there a way to change the colour from red to something else for the unit numerical values off the tooltip?

Could you post a screenshot ?
I will look if it is feasible.

Well, for some reason the red is not exactly the same as in the game :mdr:

I believe I have seen this effected in other AGEOD games by altering a line of code somewhere in the Fonts or Graphics directories.

Yes that's it. Very hard for some of us oldtimers to see. A change in size and colour would help.

I figured it out. The Interface file in the Settings folder as a segment dealing with tool tip colors which are set to red.:

// ********************************************************
// Colors
// ********************************************************

colToolTip = 255|255|255|255
colToolTipNb = 255|0|0|255
colFileList = 255|255|255|255
colTurn = 0|0|0|255
colSplashFont_R = 255
colSplashFont_G = 255
colSplashFont_B = 255
colTutorWinTitle = 083|032|015|255

I have altered this to:

// ********************************************************
// Colors
// ********************************************************

colToolTip = 0|255|255|128
colToolTipNb = 0|255|255|128
colFileList = 255|255|255|255
colTurn = 0|0|0|255
colSplashFont_R = 255
colSplashFont_G = 255
colSplashFont_B = 255
colTutorWinTitle = 083|032|015|255

Which gives a far more readable (to my eyes) aqua green. Not able to post a jpeg of it.

I miscopied the original and have changed it above.

Is this what you see?

But you changed the colour of every letter.

Yes that's it. You just change the second line 'Nota Bene' numerals to some other colour as you wish, leave the first line as

colToolTip = 255|255|255|255 (titles)
colToolTipNb = 0|255|255|128 (numerals)

To keep the names and titles white.
