Okay...messing around with color v3 there seems to be a decent amount of problems with background colors working properly in the code...on the machine I installed it on...to make sure it wasnt just me I tried out AFKmud 1.75 and had the same kinds of problems....at first couldn't even get the background colors to show up....but when I moved the check of if it were == '^' above the if == '&' I got them to kinda work.....now the major problem is they dont work together in the fact that you cant set a background color then its forground color.....it seems as soon as you set a foreground color the background color gets stopped....


I don't have any good ideas abou it as of yet....hoping for some help or helpful incite...

Later,
KeB

okay dont know why it didnt work right but after some more tinkering i realized that the previous fix works but if you want to use dark colors inside of a background color you always have to put the dark color code first and then the background color....not sure if it was always like this....

The code looks correct for it all
if using the following though you should use the background color after the foreground color, otherwise these will make the background back to default (black normaly i guess). For example ^w&RHmm&D will display it correctly background and all, while to use &r you should do &r^wHmm&D instead to get it to display correctly.
&r
&b
&c
&p
&x
&g
&w
&O

Could be wrong, but im assuming its an ANSI standard deal or maybe it just depends on the client you use lol go fiqure. Maybe someone else can offer more info on this :)

Yes, the order of use is goverend by the ANSI standards. It's kind of tricky sometimes but you get the hang of it soon enough.
