Ok... here is something, Been wanting to add more colors to the stock base of what I have... it is a Dystopia Code Base, which is Godwars, and which is Merc etc...

Anyways, been trying to look on the web, and other places for snippets, or such, to try and add MORE colors to my codebase, and the stock Pink, Cyan, Blue Red etc...
Yes I know you can add pictures in here as a post thingy so here are the links of what I am talking about.
My Stock Colors:
http://oi63.tinypic.com/wl62yt.jpg

Colors I want:
http://oi67.tinypic.com/k6qyq.jpg

I also want BLACK as well... Both background and foreground. Not all people use the Background as black I am finding out yes it is standard as a norm, but I have found some dont use it.

I just dont know where to actually find where to get a simple list of all of them that I can add.

If anyone needs the Dystopia codebase please give me a holler, as I see it is not available anywhere anymore.
I do have all the stock of all of them. If anyone wants to see/use them anyways.

If there are any questions, by all means ask away.

On about page 3 are some colour swatches.

Great on the color swatches... that does help for the colors problem is where to implement them, and how to get them to show via the color codes and the characters that need to show them IE: The #'s I just need to know where in my code where I set each color and such...
I am sorry about that, I am an idiot, Please forgive me, I didn't make myself clear.
Although the Swatches did help in narrowing down the color I needed and wanted... just don't know how to implement them to get them working.
Got the defines in, but cant figure out how to get the # tied to the Color I want....And actually putting the colors in them self. Cause I know I need to add the RGB Values but I cannot seem to find them at all in the code I looked in all my .h and .c files (though they should only be in .h I would figure than a .c's)
That is why I was hoping for a snippet or something somewhere to see how they did it even it if it for 1 color or 3 colors to see how they implemented it
I just blatantly cannot find it... unless I am totally over looking something that I am just missing out of left field....Yeh I used all the references that I could to make myself look odd and totally stupid.

But Thank you still for the dang swatches period... I still needed those Cause I wouldn't be able to even think of colors to use, and the subtle differences between them... you did an awesome job.

Oh...Here is something which I didn't know.
They already had black... lol... it is #8 as the Color number Right after Grey the 'dark' version is black... found that out by accident actually as I went #1-9 to see all the color codes... but it cant show cause it matched the background heh... funny.

I'm not sure what you are asking. To show the colours just embed the ANSI codes in the output. For example:


ESC[38;5;Nm


Where N is the colour in the range 0 to 255. ESC is hex 0x1B.

*/



Which Went in fine for the mud in general... didnt crash...no errors no warnings...

But even so...From what I understand from what you did give me This is How the background would go anyways, unless I am misunderstanding that. But.

Even so, How does one access the colors in general? Cause the !@#$%^&*() keys barring # for the top ones... and #A-#Z other than the Normal ones from the pic, dont work either.

Lets say ^G Should should Background of Green Right? But Where if anything is in the code, that assigns the ^ to be a color code start I know there is word for it i just cant remember brain fart there. Like the # is for the First ones?

Dont mind in that 2nd part of the colors for the Azure, and Jade etc... I just didn't add the colors to the end They arent in yet as you can see they are commented out....but the BackGround colors are anyways. Or Should be according to what you did give me before... unless Iam looking at it all wrong.

I did get what you were saying, about the Where N is the color in the range 0 to 255. ESC is hex 0x1B. But i dont think mine handles it like that.... Well Not totally official anyways not like this... I wish it did! Unless I really am Missing something somewhere else, but I did look for anything even similar or remotely close to what the merc.h has period in anyway and I just cant seem to find it.


ESC[38;5;Nm


Sadly The Hex or even the RGB value anywhere I cannot find period, if it is even in there anyways.... I know something has to be somewhere... more thank likely called something else that I have no clue what, knowing my luck anyways.... but something has to be to even be read somehow buy clients of all sorts, yours, zmud, gmud cmud(what ever they want to call themselves nowadays *rolls eyes*).

I am just at a loss period.

(Hopefully I did all the formatting correctly)

I'm missing something here. For example:


#define BGBLACK		"ESC[0;0;40m"	/* Black Background by Cyrus */


You don't literally send ESC you send 0x1B which would look like:


#define BGBLACK		"\x1B[0;0;40m"	/* Black Background by Cyrus */


You also don't seem to be using the 256-ANSI colours at all.

Colour 125 from the table on the other page would be:


#define WHATEVER "\x1B[38;5;125m"

The Little backspace arrows are just what was copied and pasted as is... \x1B is converted to ESC automatically just by the Editor is all. :)
i put in the ESC before cause oddly it actually does show ESC in the editor.
As you can see...
This shows, the ESC as it is seen in NotePad++
http://oi65.tinypic.com/21otw8x.jpg

Well this From what I can see is the whole code for the color anywhere in the whole codebase.
255 from what I can see as well, is the temp colors to temp be put into the buffer for them to be altered for the screen... meaning to set them light dark etc how ever the above sees them to be added per structure of what is being used at that given time.

Although I did use

#define L_CYAN		""	/* Cyan #6 */

Just to see ... and it turned it into a Magenta.... or a DARK Purple almost like the #p does for the ones above in those picutre.

Did 210m
Got somewhere in between gold and magenta? Almost Pinky... LIke well just like the 210 is on your color charts oddly enough... Using the #6 or #C for the Cyan color code..(for testing purposes)
I just Need to or would like to figure out the # is in the code... So I can assign the # to what I need so which #'s so I can use them as new colors.
I think the 210 kinda well says I do have 256 right ;)

First, your ansi codes are longer than necessary.
0;0;
is equivalent to just
0;

Second, your desired light and dark yellows are reversed.

To use a phrase from a wise 'ol master...
"it isn't my code, that's how I found it"

Lets put it into context.
I understand Nick's explanation on the color handling. How the color code works, how it is seen/called, now that I have used his color codes... which was awesome Nick btw... so thank you...that did help out alot actually.

Now the problem is....
The Mud uses # hastags for the younger people, or Pound signs for little older generation , or really old like me number sign.
So the #P Will Put up a bright Pink Color(or what they consider pink anyways form the first picture) its Called magenta really by them in the help file but Pink in the code go figure
Now what I am asking is where is the # located in the code? I looked for the character set, or the hex, or the ascii portion of the numbers throughout the code and I couldn't find the # to reference the # to have it be the trigger to color anything.
How is the #P know it is going to be Magenta at all?
Where does the link between, # to call the start of a new color, and P(or any color Letter or Number) reside?
Cause I just cant add the color like I did above as you saw, and just make it work it has to be able to be called somehow so it can be called by a person in the game.
I looked at or searched for Example PINK anywhere in the Code yes it found referenced to color things that are there like Items and what not but nothing that references how.
SO in Adding
Lets say:
(Keep in Mind the '' is an 'ESC' as you see in the Picture it just copies/pastes differently.)

#define AZURE   "" 

Now it wouldn't be a #A cause #A isn't referenced to
Azure where would it be to turn on?


#define D_AZURE "" 

If this is the Dark Azure, I cant do #D or #DA cause it doesn't work like that...
Where is the reference in the code cause I couldn't find it... where it would say
Something like

#define D_AZURE  a
or Not being exact here at all or even accurate...
if (IS_COLOR_AZURE == "") colorletter = "A";

Something that tells the Color Azure that tells the game or person to use the Cap Letter A in using the Color azure, and small a later on for Dark Azure.

Was trying to find the # reference to start calling the colors, but I couldn't even find that in the code.
So I can start possibly adding background colors as well... which is also what I wanted to do too.
But Since I cannot find the initial # to add a ^ which is a good point to use for the call sign of the BG colors, both were a non start from that point on.

Here is the Stock Codebase that I am using Nick....
Dont know if it will help you at all. I know you dont code or anything like that, I remember way back when you said that... but maybe it will help you in understanding what I see and what I am asking.
http://www.mediafire.com/file/02atmfxa2ivcn1j/dystopia-gold.tar.gz

Hope this Helps Nick.

Not necessary. I've already read the thread and I understand your question, because you've already asked your question. You just didn't provide the codebase until now.

Quote:

Start at line 1914 in src/comm.c

Quote:

Those #defines are never used, which is why you aren't finding them. See the code I mention above and you'll find how to actually do it.

It's actually a lot easier to answer questions that are concise instead of rambling. It was paragraphs and paragraphs of me going "Yes, I know. Yes, I KNOW. YES, I KNOW. I KNOW THAT ALREADY! YOU ALREADY SAID THAT! SHUT UP AND GET TO THE PART WHERE YOU LINK THE SOURCE CODE! AHHHHHHH"
