This has probably been discussed before, but I'm wondering how to do this. The basic way for popping up a message in game is to get the EntityPlayerSP and do player.addChatMessage("blah");
But, how would I change the color of the font in that message? Is there a special code I can put in front of "blah" like "CODEblah"? I know there is some way to do this with SMP but I'm not sure how to do this on a modding level.
This thread is two years old man. Those people above you brought it back and they're worse but yeah, it's not a lie calm the heck down, ALT+(numbers) works fine for typing unicode characters on Windows! ALT+21 does the dollar sign thing fine you're just doing it wrong (it only works on numpad, turn on numlock. If you have no numpad, use Character Map accessory and copy/paste the symbol you want).
If you want to use colors, do EnumChatFormatting instead. More info here.
