Editing system messages colors

Recommended Posts

Hello!

Everyone knows that changed, personalized chat message colors can improve game experience, but tools which was working before server update now have some problems with compatibility. But here I am! After finding working tools I decided to add some simple GUI for easier file editing.

Now it's only basic alpha version so remember about making backups. In near days I will do improvements to it to be more casual friendly. I have spent my today energy for make it working, so I will add some advice how to use it later, but I think that it's enough intitive to understand how it works.

It's late so I hope that didn't fuc*ed up something and will be working on other computer than my :D

Info for advanced editor:

Maybe someone have knowledge to help me:

I wanted to add easy menu to choose sounds for messages, but systemmsg contains now only id of sound instead of name like in old chronicles and I have problems with matching id to proper soundfile and soundname. If someone know if list of sounds names for Id is hardcoded in exe or maybe stored in some file, this information would really help me. In other case finding all sounds (still 6 missing) used in default systemmsg will probably requiring too much effort and time for me and I will give up with this option.

It's system msg editor... What u wanna check by admins?  

You know, generally every .exe in internet can contain virus no matter what main program do :P Especially .exe for non-official client for some MMO :D

First of all, thanks for you effort delivering this tool.

Second, I need help because I can't see the changes in-game.

I updated some text colors:

Saved the changes:

I go in-game, try to hit something and text colors didn't change:

Look closely.. you changed the text you got hit for.

But ingame it says has inflicted.

 

Change the inflicted color. That will do.

Some event messages arę duplicated from older chronicles. You have to find one with proper text. As Temudjin said, you have to find "inflicted" messages.
