Straight from today's front page of nwvault:

Craig Welburn - Live Team Programmer -

    Coloured Text:

    Quote: Well, primarily I'd like to have my party's chat in one window and module related conversation (i.e. talking to people) in another.
    If you right click on the bar at the top of the text window, there are options for filtering/displaying different types of text. If you open your nwnplayer.ini file (located in your NWN directory). Then look for the following section. You can change the numbers to change the in game chat colors:

    [Chat Colors]
    TalkColor=240,240,240
    ShoutColor=255,239,80
    WhisperColor=128,128,128
    TellColor=32,255,32
    ServerColor=176,176,176
    PartyColor=255,102,1
    DMColor=16,223,255

    The numbers represent a RGB color scheme. First number represents the amount of Red in the text, the second number represents the amount of Green in the text, and the third number represents the amount of Blue in the text.
    Thus
    TalkColor=255,1,1
    Will make the text red. The values can vary between 1 (none of that color) to 255 (the most of that color)


Interesting piece of trivia, anyway. I can see a couple things I might tweak if I ever have time to bother. smile.gif

I notice that it lists a DM color? Is that just for if you are on as a DM, and a player uses the /dm talk command? Sometimes I've wished that it displayed what I said when I talked to a DM, but it doesn't. Is there a way to change this in nwnplayer.ini?

Yes - that's the color the /dm channel uses, I presume. It comes out as a kind of cyan color. (light blue) I'm not sure about echoing back to player characters when they /dm; I think that would definitely be a nice feature.

I didn't find a section in my nwnplayer.iini as they described above, but I'm experimenting with appending one. smile.gif I'd love to have party chat a slightly differnt color from regular chat.

Sweet, thanks Rob.

I added the stuff from my original post to my nwnplayer.ini the other night; it changed party chat to orange and left the rest as-is; I think I might rethink that a bit, but it is nice to have the party chat and local chat color different.

Well atleast with the chart you can get idea of how they will look depending on the numbers you use.

Just remember that colors appear different based upon the background...

I needed to find this the other day as I reinstalled NWN, so I thought I would bump it up for everyone else to see. Ah hell I'll just pin it for now.

Bumpity. I knew this was around here somewhere. I used to use orange for party chat and for whatever reason it bugged me and I decided to try another color. I"m going to try a soft pinky color for now:

PartyColor=223,102,255
