There are other color pickers.
http://armagetron.co.uk/colours/colourpicker.php
http://iceman.armagetron.co.uk/

Try looking through the links on the main page for other helpful resources:

Well, you could add a color entry in settings.cfg like so:

Code: Select all

color_r_1   16
color_g_1   0
color_b_1   0

*just an example
...but then you'd have to have to open that file every time you wanted to change colors.

You can type the entries above one at a time in the console. Read about that here: http://wiki.armagetronad.net/index.php?title=Console
...but maybe that's too much typing.

If you get really crazy, you can make a file called "blackredbike.cfg" with the code inside, then type "include blackredbike.cfg" in the console when you want that color combo. You can make as many different files and colors as you want then, and switching between them is easy.

If those links are not on the wiki then we should put them there ?

Is the "color" wiki entry not integrated well enough ? (because 13-itch did not find it)

Who is kind and capable of improving it a bit ? :D

Just so that we make a step in the right direction.

Looks at 13-itch, sinewave and jonathan :D

Ohh... now i get it, you change this in the command prompt, i get it now- i made my cycle blue, my trail white- it's cool.

Blue=15
Red=16
Green=16
Thats just one of the many ways we can go flying high up!

Wanna know something I learned? If you use 16 for a color, your bike will be slightly tinted that color, not black.
So instead, I chose -15... and it worked. Completely black. -16 or -1 will be fullbright, however.

Any pro knows that 15 = near white, brightest possible > -16 > -1 > 0 > -15 > 256 = black, darkest possible.

@Enzo: noone except perhaps jonathan expects you to be a pro. We all learn and I would not have known either, because I've never looked at color rendering code.

@Jonathan: AFAIK you investigates/documented all the color code at sometime. Do you think you can provide a "short" overview with those hints you just provided (for a FAQ)?

I guess other players will really love that info (in a public/permanent place).

@players in this thread: please make some suggestion what terms you'd use to search for color information and where you would expect it in the wiki.

EDIT: ok, I just noticed the problem with FAQ :-)

It's not really a easy read because of long phrased questions, and perhaps missing grouping structuring. Anyone volueentering to improve it ? We might make it more prominent.

I didn't expect anyone to take it seriously. But really, "Short answer: Don't. It's annoying." says all.
