The QuickText string parameter does NOT have to begin with a Tilde (~) character. You could do 'addQuickText "Dog" "Cat"' and from then on, Echo "Dog" would actually echo "Cat" to all clients. Be careful though as these strings are global in nature and remain in effect even after your script ends. QuickTexts effect strings sent from any running scripts, TWX System/Menus/etc.. and even TWGS/TradeWars game output too. This is kind of an unintended side effect, but if you want "Captain Zyrain" to be "Admiral Zyrain", then you can do it with a QuickText.

I think he is due for a promotion, Don't you?

Hey Cruncher,

You know how you hate those Dark Blue ship numbers you can't read?

addquicktext "1;34m" "1;32m"

Image

... could be dangerous though, it would change all Blue to Green everywhere :/

Can you believe that unreadable color is the "Bright" version of blue. I always thought it was "Dark" blue. I can't read the Lime Green... better make it Yellow:
addquicktext "1;34m" "1;33m"

hehehheee

So if we get all carried away with customizing our colors and then realize that we've screwed something up and can't read anything, is there a command to restore defaults?

Thinking you might make some changes at the beginning of a script and then want to undo all that at the end with one simple command. Otherwise, you have to repeat the opposite of all those changes, probably screw that up too.

Yes, of coarse there is!

# Create a QuickText
addQuickText "~Z" "^[0;31;44m"

# Remove a specific QuickText
clearQuickText "~Z"

# Remove all existing texts
clearQuickText

See the WIKI for more information:
https://github.com/MicroBlaster/TWXProx ... rQuickText

Note: This command is broken in 2.06.05a, but has been fixed in the next release.
