EDIT:
nvm, found the source code XD
Except for that small piece of source, no.

If I may ask, why do you want it? :)

Well I dunno, multiline perhaps? The letter offset function?

Fun fact:
The code to print the Doom text is 1223 lines. C:

And the whole project's code is 2310 lines.

None really, this is good enough on it's own anyway. Not that I really care since I use IDE anyway.. Just sayian... Oh god I've caught the pun disease.

I like you more for every post, what I see is an intelligent person with good potential :)

I have a suggestion, though it might have been posted before IDK, but it would be a lot of work:
Instad of using images to display the text you could use a generator that display the images in the right color based on hexadecimal color values.
I do not suggest removing removing support for \c*, but I think using hardcoded hexadecimal references would maybe work nicely to make that happen.

do anyone else like the sound of this idea?

If not, heres another one:
Being able to import font code to make the program able to make text using that, would make us able to make text with fuzzballs colors!

I didn't ask exactly you. And because so far Doomseeker is the program that's automatically installed with the port, (and it makes sense to ask for DS improvements here unlike IDE).

Still don't understand why it would be in Doomseeker. Plus, it's not programmed in the same language as Ds.

I wanted hexadecimal too, but i have no idea how to do it... I'll keep looking into it.
I will make custom charts however, but probably in it's own file format.

I'm thinking of when i fix hexadecimal, I will do \c[#HEXCOLOR].

This is not a zandronum utility, but a private project, and have no direct relation to zandronum whatsoever. There is just no logical reason this should be implemented in the default zandronum package.
Also, do you notice the count of modders who were replying to this ASAP?

I think that sounds like a very good implementation of hexadecimal support :)

What file format will you use for the charts and how will we edit them?

Will you make support for grayscale charts that support hexadecimal support? :P (I think maybe having all the different fonts in each their folder, which you can select on a list in the options?)

I don't know about the format yet, but I will create a chart editor inside DW were there will be some color editing shit.

Grayscale? Huh?

I will make an add option for the charts, that'll then be saved in a list at options.

Ok I've come up with an idea for the format: .DWC - Doom Writer Chart (of course :razz: )
And I've changed my mind... I will either make the chart editor a standalone program, or I'll make it both standalone and implemented in DW.

Here's my question about help with the hexadecimal color:

Tomorrow I can start programming on DW again. If there's anyone that has any idea about programming and feels that you might be able to help with the coloring, please contact me. The application is written in Visual Basic.

Anyone that helps will be put in the credits.

Contact:
Either here, on the forum...
Or here: support@mydoomsite.com

EDIT:
Current recoloring method: ColorMatrix.
