Anyone got any custom color schemes to share?

With Angband's color editor ("=" for Options, then "c"), you can load a custom color scheme for the game, or make your own.

Does anyone have any color schemes they've made to share? = D

~~~~~~

I made a very simple one--it modifies just five colors. Just wanted something with lettering that was a little less glaring than the default color set is in xterm-256color, where it's shifted brighter than in the graphical client's 24-bit palette. I toned down the default bright cyan color (color 14). I couldn't find many darker grays for the dungeon in the 8-bit palette, but I found some kind of nice honey and chocolate tones, so I went with those, and changed the white text color to cream--I call this simple scheme "Brownie." =d





Because of how xterm-256color's color palette adaptation works, I guess, you need separate 8-bit and 24-bit versions of the color schemes to make sure they come out looking like you'd intended in Angband's various front-ends. So I have a brownie8.prf you can load in terminal versions running 256 colors, and a brownie24.prf you can load in the 24-bit graphical front end (ie default Windows version, set to ASCII rather than tiles display). If you're playing in an 8/16 color xterm-style console, like Windows' default cmd.exe, Angband's color editor, and some details colors, like the player's light source highlight on nearby dungeon walls, won't work for you, but you can enter most of the 24-bit colors manually into your terminal emulator's color settings. I'm not sure if the palettes line up across xterm consoles, but I'll specify which colors to map to which color slots for Windows' cmd.exe, at least:

(I picked the colors running Angband's color editor in a xterm-256color terminal, screenshotted them there, found their real RGB color values by loading the screenshot in Photoshop, and punched those values into the brownie24.prf copy of the color scheme. Note that you can't then just load that 24-bit palette back into the 8-bit color client--it will round the colors to something other than their original 24-bit values! At least, my Cygwin console did.

See https://angband.readthedocs.io/en/la...e-to-find-them for working with .prf files. I like to use the color editor's b "Dump colors" option to write them to my user.prf, so they will load automatically for all characters until I change them again. Before doing that, you might want to dump Angband's default colors to defaultcolors.prf or something, just so you can restore those easily if you want to later.)

Windows' cmd.exe terminal (and other xterm consoles?) - enter 24-bit colors manually via the console's Properties - Colors menu, counting the leftmost color there as color 0:

cmd.exe color 0 - set to 0, 0, 0 (Angband color 0: background)
cmd.exe color 1 - set to 0, 215, 215 (Angband color 14: highlight text, town roofs + border walls)
cmd.exe color 7 - set to 175, 135, 95 (Angband color 2: main walls)
cmd.exe color 8 - set to 135, 95, 0 (Angband color 8: wall ore)
cmd.exe color 15 - set to 215, 215, 175 (Angband color 1: main text)

(Angband color 9, the wall torchlight color, does not have an equivalent in cmd.exe.)

Chocolate Chocolate Chip



I got lazy this time, so just have the 8-bit version prepared. Still in the same flavor country, darker and with somewhat more subtle lighting now.
