CS:S and TF2 only

As many of you may have noticed, after almost 10 years of people begging VALVe to incorporate more than 5 chat colors into the HL2 engine, they finally did so in an update less than a month ago.
This means, that unlike ever before, we can now display ANY color we want to in the chat. We can even display it at ANY transparency (although due to how annoying this could become, I have not added functionality for this.)
So, we have decided to allow VIPs and Admins to take advantage of this, and allow them to use ANY color they wish in their names. Note: I stress VIP and Admins only. If you have high enough rep to use colored name, you will only be able to use the default colors (team, lightgreen, green, olive).

Aaaand, here is a picture of a sample name using a bunch of colors previously unavailable.

Colors available to each game

These are the colors available to each game, for the people who do not own the advanced colored names (CS:S, TF2)

CS:S
  • ^1 - Default
  • ^3 - Team color
  • ^4 - Green
  • ^5 - Olive

CS:GO
  • ^1 - White
  • ^2 - Red
  • ^3 - Yellow on T, Blue on CT, Purple in Spec
  • ^4 - Dark Green
  • ^5 - Olive
  • ^6 - Another green
  • ^7 - Another red
  • ^8 - Grey

TF2
  • ^1

So an example of how to make your coloredname say Bonbon simply put into console
sm_coloredname "^3Bon^1bon"

And a list of all the colors available to admins


In order to use these colors, just put the name of the color inside braces, {}, so for example

sm_coloredname "{white}I'm {black}a {white}zebra {black}!{salmon}!{steelblue}!"

And in addition to these predefined colors, you can use ANY hexidecimal representation of a color.

So for example, if you had your colored name set to this

sm_coloredname "{0f234fd}Hello {ff}there,{3fa3} how {fad3}are {ffff}you{a2223}?"

In chat, your name would display as

Hello there, how you?

Warning: These new colors are for NAMES ONLY. Currently, colored chat will be restricted to root only, and anyone attempting to exploit this by whatever means will be dealt with accordingly.

Yes, it's for names only.

Also, just a little "for fun" thing. Here's what it looks like with the transparent option VALVe also added.

It's a shame none of you guys found out about it before I disabled it.

What do you do when there is an evil you cannot defeat by just means? Do you stain your hands with evil to destroy evil, or do you remain steadfastly just and righteous even if it means surrendering to evil?

Yo dawg, we heard you like IP bans, so we put IP bans in your IP bans so you can IP ban while you IP ban.

Please enjoy your IP ban shit dicks.

The_Monkey said:

Congratulations! You have won a two week ban. You take care now, you hear?

The_Monkey said:

I will unban you. You need to understand that you are a fucking retard.

Be sure you don't weigh more than 200 lbs. before you go out on the ice, you just might fall through and drown in an icy pool of your sorrow.

Is it me, or is my colored name glitched? Ever since more colors was added to the server it somehow screwed up my colored name I use with the simple 5 colors, since I don't have admin or vip. Not sure if it's just me, but for me the color codes are screwed up.
