This article needs to be cleaned up to a higher standard of quality.

The specific problem is: A change in 4.2.022 disables non-numeric color codes. Page should be updated to reflect this change. You can help Urban Terror Wiki by improving this article if you can. Generally, this may mean re-organizing parts of the article, checking grammar & spelling, or correcting formatting.

Color codes will work in say_team, ut_radio # #, and ut_echo (among other uses). They are ignored in public chat/say commands. Moderators can use colors in public rcon say commands.

Use of Color Codes

To apply colors, simply type the code or add it to text in a bind or config file. Everything after that will have the color applied until a new color code is typed or the line breaks.

^1Hello, ^2this is ^4blue.

Result: Hello, this is blue.

The default color for chat is ^3, pale yellow. The default color for console messages is ^7, white.

NOTE: Only 0-7 are officially supported colors. The others work, but are not officially supported.
