Help changing font color

Post by Motorcharge »

Current desktop in spoiler.

The clock I surrounded in red I'm trying to change the font color to white, but can't figure out what code it's using to determine font color. I searched a bit but couldn't find anything.

In the .ini it shows "FontColor= #FontColor#"

Setting it to "white" turned it a dark blue and trying to use RGB it simply disappeared completely.

...using RGB made it dissappear completely?
You probably did something wrong... sorry to say.

If FontColor=#FontColor# that means there's a variable.
Look under the [Variables] section for FontColor=
Then, change it to something.

If you want JUST that meter to be white, replace FontColor=#FontColor# with FontColor=FFFFFF

White:
RGB - 255,255,255
Hex - FFFFFF


Post the code in

Code: Select all

 tags and we can help you better.

You need to find where #FontColor# is defined in [Variables]. If it isn't directly in the skin, it might be in a @Include file which will be in [Variables] in the skin.

Thanks, I'll try again, I was trying to change the #FontColor# directly by changing that text.
