Usage for sm_coloredname

Creating the code:

-Use https://htmlcolorcodes.com/ to retrieve HTML Color Codes of your choice. You can go there and manually select any color you wish at a precise tuning.

-Always use { } to hold the characters for the code.
Example. - {5E7B3A}
(If the server is running SM 1.10 include the # before the numbers but inside the brackets)

-Always place the code in front of the letters to the right you wish to be that color.
Example. - {5E7B3A}Name

-To make multiple colors, just add more codes in front of the colors to the right of it.
Example. - {689233}Na{5E7B3A}me

This method can be used to create an entire name with colors.

Creating a Matching Tag

Note: Creating a tag that impersonates our admins is strictly against the rules (i.e.  [Admin])

Use the color code {green} to have the same color as the [ ] on your [VIP] tag. Same goes for all levels of Admin. 

Example. - {green}[HG] = [HG]

Use ^3 to make certain characters your team color. 

Example. - {green}[^3HG{green}] = [HG[HG]

For advanced users, you can use the codes beneath for simplified codes. Note that some do not work.

Colors
^0 - Default
^1 - Default
^2 - White
^3 - Team color
^4 - Green
^5 - Olive green
^6 - Item color (usually yellow, black if the client hasn't seen an item found or crafted yet)[TF2]
(this does not work well / is disabled)
^7 - Default
^8 - Team
^9 - Green

Remember: The longer the name, the fewer codes you will be able to use.

-All names under 12 characters can have individual codes (for more detail).
Example. - sm_coloredname {FF0000}[{FF4000}H{FF8000}G{FFBF00}] {FFFF00}A{BFFF00}d{80FF00}m{40FF00}i{00FF00}r{00FF40}a{00FF80}l = [HG] Admiral 
{}[{}H{}G{}] {}A{}d{}m{}i{}r{}a{}l

-For longer names, less codes will have to be used for more overall spacing between codes (To not glitch out and say “LOL MY NAMES TOO LONG”).
Example. - {871212}Im{A41414}pe{B42020}ri{C21818}al {D81C1C}Kni{FF1111}ght = Imperial Knight
{}Im{}pe{}ri{}al {}Kni{}ght

-Once you have your colored name prepared, make sure to have "sm_coloredname" in front of the code when entering it in the developer console.

 

Take Note: Once you have a finalized version of the code, you will want to save it in a text file or Google Doc to not lose it. However, if you have lost it you can type /coloredname_list in chat to get a copy of your finalized colored name.

 

Troubleshooting:

If your name says “LOL MY NAME IS TO LONG”
#1. Check-in /items that your colored name is enabled. Disable it and re-enable it before re-entering the name into the console.
#2. Check to see if your name has too many codes for the number of letters per code. Too many codes in a longer name will make this happen. Remove a few codes and try it again.

UPDATE:

If none of the troubleshooting steps resolve your issue, you might have to check the version of SourceMod the server is running. SM 1.6 - 1.9 use the HTML color codes as seen above. However, SM 1.10 (example of console output) requires you to have # in front of all the codes. 

Example. - sm_coloredname {#FF0000}[{#FF4000}H{#FF8000}G{#FFBF00}] {#FFFF00}A{#BFFF00}d{#80FF00}m{#40FF00}i{#00FF00}r{#00FF40}a{#00FF80}l = [HG] Admiral
