Bug: It is not possible to send colorized login screens
Danger: Trivial - Not fixing this won't break a thing
Found by: Samson
Fixed by: Samson

---

comm.c, new_descriptor

Locate:
   /*
    * Send the greeting.
    */
   {
      extern char *help_greeting;
      if( help_greeting[0] == '.' )
         write_to_buffer( dnew, help_greeting + 1, 0 );
      else
         write_to_buffer( dnew, help_greeting, 0 );
   }


Change to:
   /*
    * Send the greeting.
    */
   {
      extern char *help_greeting;
      if( help_greeting[0] == '.' )
         send_to_desc_color( help_greeting + 1, dnew );
      else
         send_to_desc_color( help_greeting, dnew );
   }


mud.h

Locate:
void send_to_char_color args( ( const char *txt, CHAR_DATA * ch ) );


Add below:
void send_to_desc_color( const char *txt, DESCRIPTOR_DATA *d );


Part of the goal of the upgraded color system was to allow colorized login screens for those who might want them. The code however is not currently setup to actually allow this, so this change is needed to fix that. Once this fix is done it is a simple matter of adding color tags to your greeting screen to get a colorized login.
