Out of Curiosity: What Colour Are Your Enemies?

Post by Elmir » Thu Mar 13, 2008 1:51 pm

The worst part of "cha col all def" isn't that it's a hard command to find.
It's that all the enemies start out as bright white text!

I've seen some odd colours during my lab days, green on white, black on white and even red on yellow (Zaber used it for a session I think).

I instantly have to change it to yellow, what colour do you use?

I use bold white for enemies, yellow is for communication!
I guess you might have known that already, however.

cha colour enemy bold green! I used to have the default colour, but some client I used didn't show it in bold, so I had to change it.

Until now, the only colour I used was on room names. I'll give enemies a try though, I'll test with them as white and see if this makes playing smoother!

Bold blue for me - the only colour that really stands out in my eyes if needed.
