Chat Channels

Double click a channel to edit it, select a color, then click Apply Color. The chat box will not refresh until a chat message is displayed, or you scroll through the chat history. If you like it, save the changes and they will be restored when you next log in. They are stored in a cookies file within the client's cache folder.

Further Customization

Some messages come across with other information embedded into the channel name. In these cases it is possible to customize colors for specific things.

To utilize these custom colorings, instead of double-clicking a channel in the list, type a new one into the input box, select a color, then click Apply Color. A new channel entry will be added to the list.

ch/test
Custom coloring of all private chat channel messages in the channel named "test". Other channels are not affected.

t/"Some Player"

yt/Some Player
Custom coloring for outgoing /tell messages to the character name "Some Player". In contrast to above, quotation marks are not used. Outgoing /tell messages to other players are not affected.
