I am sure that all of us have been somewhere, when all of a sudden someone shouts out something in a different color. This can be very confusing if you do not know how to do it yourself. Well, I am here today to teach you how to make colored words in Runescape.
It really is not that hard. They are very simple and easy commands that are so short you probably will never forget them. Before I get into all of the different commands, let me first tell you how to enter them. It must always go as followed:
If you do it any other way, it will not work. Also, make sure there are no spaces in between your commands. Otherwise, it will not work. Other than that, it is very simple. Since colors come first, lets start with them.
There are six main colors that you can choose from, and they are:
(Default color) Yellow:
Runescape Color Text
If you were to take any of these and put it before your message, they would turn it that color, such as if I was to type -
red: Selling Cut Ruby!
The message would be red, and would say Selling Cut Ruby! There are 6 other color effects as well. They do various color changes in one message. These are:
Flash1: Flashes between red and yellow
Flash2: Flashes between cyan and blue
Flash3: Flashes between light and dark green
Glow1: Message fades from red, to orange, to yellow, to green, to cyan
Glow2: Message fades from red, to magenta, to blue, to dark red, to red
Glow3: Message fades from white, to green, to white, to cyan
Other Runescape Color Words
These effects can be great to catch someones eye when selling an item. Along with these effects, you also have movement commands you can use. They are:
Scroll: Message scrolls from right to left.
Shake: Message shakes bizarrely.
Wave: Message moves up and down.
Wave2: Message waves diagonally.
Slide: Message slides from up to down.
A combination of both the movements and the colors can make a really interesting message, if I was to type glow2:wave2:Hey everyone, look at my cool message!
Then the message would wave diagonally, along with fade colors from red, to magenta, to blue, to dark red, and then to red. These codes can make all the more difference if you are trying to sell things in a very crowded place. Although the Grand Exchange has cleared out a lot of the crowded banks that does not mean that there are still not places where people go to sell things. Therefore, if you are one of those that still stand in crowded areas trying to sell your items, these commands can help you greatly. For the most part, these commands are only used for fun now though. The Grand Exchanges lets buyers have their items a lot faster without having to bank hop, world hop, and haggle with other players. It makes buying and selling much easier and faster.
A lot of times people fishing at Catherby will use these commands to make fish scroll across the screen. They do this by typing flash2:scroll:< < < and this will make a line of fish appear and disappear. It keeps things fun, and as we all know, when you are hording, it can get boring.
