View Full Version : Messages term colors location

September 11, 2010, 20:10
Today is my first day observing the code, so I'm still a bit lost. I'd appreaciate your help locating where the bright white color is being defined for the term that contains the messages list. I've been looking through z-msg but there's somewhere else upstream of this code that is actually defining that.

I need to slowly start changing the game colors. The liberal use of bright colors in the game has a strong effect on me since I tend to suffer from migraines when exposed to hard contrast (bright white on black is the worse for me).

EDIT: nevermind this request. I can see now they are defined in pref/messages.prf and not in code.

Also, you can edit them via the options.

hmm... I couldn't see where. There's where I first went. I saw an option to change game colors, but that would affect the whole game. I intend to change messages and items (inventory and equipment), but I do want to leave the main window alone.

My bad.
You are right about messages prf file, although I didn't realize it was possible to change the color of generic messages.
