    I want to be able to color my servers name and motd in the server.properties by inserting my own color codes. for example...

    When I look at my server in the muliplayer server screen I want it to have a color for the name and motd.

    Server.properties:
    server-name= &eFunkyTown
    motd= &a24/7 Funky Factions!

    I just tested it and it doesn't seem to be possible.

    Why not? Color codes are standard in the game though. :confused:

    Yes, but the motd is not made to work with colors.
    I tried setting the motd to "test ChatColor.RED lol" and this is what it looks like (notice the ping): [​IMG]
    Heres to code:
    Code:java
    1. public void onServerListPing(ServerListPingEvent event) {
    2. event.setMotd("test "+ChatColor.RED+" lol");
    3. }

    Oh well worth a try but if you or anyone does I will still pay that 5 bucks :D

    I suppose that's a good way of hiding the ping. Maybe if the server is down for maintenance. Actually, I might develop that.

    hmm mcsignondoor or msod or something like this does that already.. when the server is really down..

    Have you tried a byte code? Using this?

    Or does that just do that exact same thing as a ChatColor enum?

    EDIT: Wait... the MOTD must support some sort of color, otherwise it wouldn't appear gray.

    I was thinking the exact same thing!

    Nope, it's pretty clearly a client-side fix that limits the message to only normal minecraft characters. Mojang is also clearly evil perfectly normal for not expanding font.png to unicode
