Yellow Crits

Post by BearFather » Mon Sep 04, 2017 9:20 pm

So my old nostalgia getting me again. I miss yellow crits! So does any of the dll guys out there know how to change crits back to yellow? Is it possible?

I'm sure it's very possible. Just a matter of finding the preceding ansi code before the message text and changing it.

It's been years since when I first looked into turning crits back into yellow. I liked it when they were yellow, but that changed a few versions after I started playing Majormud. Now as far as turning crits back into yellow it's possible for the most part. I've got the message for crits yellow, but seems to be a 2 part message.
You critically cut nasty wyvern for 82 damage!
The first part is "You". Followed by "critically cut nasty wyvern for 82 damage!"
These are colored coded separately. Results looks like this.
You critically cut nasty wyvern for 82 damage!
You can change both color codes, but "You" is also used for normal attacks too and thus would be the extact opposite of the colors above, but for normal rounds.

I have an idea actually that just might work that I've already used. A few years back I successfully changed title colors use the title text blocks and modifying the dll which was a little tricky. I've used a color scheme using lights colors to darker colors with shades from lighter to darker. I'll have to dig my portable hard drive out with my archive of files so I can post how I did it.

I think yellow crits made the game as a whole better looking. Always seeing just the same 5 colors all the time without any player interaction is kinda dull.
