CS:S Chat Colours (And improved Chat Filter)!

Discussion in Server Updates started by Kyle, May 28, 2012

    So after Dillinger and a few others were getting mad at me today (They still haven't posted their colours...), I've "released" this.

    You have to be at least a Donor to use Chat Colours. The command is sm_cmenu (or !cmenu in chat).

    They look like this:

    Would you like your badass colour to be added to the list? Sure, post and we'll see how it looks.
    If you find an exploit with my new chat filter, I'll assign you your very own colour.

    Thanks!

    Thanks to Grudge, Harvey, Nena and a few others for making fun of me for having values attached to my name, and breaking chat a number of times.

    EDIT: To clarify, don't donate because of this. While it works at the moment (Carried over from TF2), I can see Valve (Alfred) removing this when they/he finds out.

        Edit:> can we make the colour chosen to save when we leave the server.

        @Kyle did you check the post? I posted like 2000 colors. This is awesome and you are the man!

        EDIT: I'll look through those charts and pull out some colors I'd like to see. As it is now, the colors are too washed out / pastel-ish...most of them look almost the same in chat besides purple. I liked it better the way you had it earlier, where they had a bit more saturation.

        EDIT2: Could you give me the hex values of the current colors so I know a starting point on the chart as far as saturation goes

        Red maybe. Any suggestions? Black would look horrific. I've yet to hear of a "Light Black", besides Gray of course.

          I am pretty sure a noname admin mod used a little while back (when mani was alive, so yeah, a while ago) colours like this were being used. Why would they remove it? Not like you are modding the engine.. (unless you are doing it, whatever i dunno)

          black? last thing we want is chat colors to become annoying as fuck... everyone hates the guy who posts white text on a white bg or black text on a black bg.. let's not grant anyone the ability to be 'that guy' in-game.
          I'm also curious what the chat filter involves.

          @Kyle if I want to pick out some possible colors what format do you need 'em in for easy implementation? just regular ol hex or what? I might be able to get some better ones than the easter theme we got goin' on. Keeping them all visible & easy to read regardless of bg color will be a must.

          Also I think we should ditch the lime color / not use any color that's close to the main admin chat one. I keep finding myself gravitating my eyes toward players using lime thinking its an admin saying something important annnnnd it's not. I'd either remove Lime or make it more yellowish or something... anything that wasn't near what the admin one is.

          Well after experiencing it for a while, it feels quite annoying to see and read the texts. Could we maybe leave it normal but instead have player names in color? That way there's no confusion in the text but players can still have that uniqueness.

              I approve of this idea, although i'd stay away from colors too difficult to see IMO.
              Great update Kyle!

                  @bellabasic those colors are awesome - I dig!

                  My favorite color to type in would be 00FFFF or 00CCFF !

                  As much as Kyle hated my chart I'm gonna post this one on here because I think it's a good reference for people to figure out their fave colors' respective codes :neutral:

                  EDIT: Whatever the color of the current "Yellow" is, I really like. It's like a tan / pearl white and it really stands out but isn't as harsh as pure white. I think it's somewhere between FFFFCC and FFFFFF
