Color Control

Postby twelvenomads on Thu Feb 16, 2012 10:19 am

Hey Guys - I have a question

I set up private games for a group of 6 friends and I use the same player order so that we're always the same color for each map. Makes it much easier when playing so many games.

HOWEVER - when we play team games, it's either always the same teams, or we ditch our traditional color.

Is there any way I can assign who's on what team WITHOUT having to change the player order/army color?

Thanks - love CC!!

This sounds like it should be in Q&A. Maybe you're asking for a script to be written?

And the answer is that the colors are determined by the spot you enter the game. The first player is always red. Second is green and so on. There is no way to change that. And there is currently no script.

Chapcrap is right, it's not possible currently. I could write a script that does allow you to change colors for players (kinda hard though), but then again it would be confusing if someone else uses different colours and names the colours in chat.

If people would use names (or even player numbers) in chat, then it would not matter what colours anyone saw.
