==General Format==
+
The '''colors.tbl''' allows editing of the default color values used for text in various game locations, as well as being used for team color declarations, redefining interface colors, and modifying or adding new color tags.
  
*Colors.tbl simply starts with "#Start Color" (without the quotes)
 
*All following entries are of the form "$Color name: (R G B A)" (without the quotes, but with the brackets), where R, G, B, and A are red, green, blue and alpha values (between 0 and 255 inclusive).
 
*Colors.tbl must end with "#End" (without the quotes).
 
  
==Possible Colors==
+
This table is one of the [[Modular Tables]] and can be extended with xxx-clr.tbm
  
*Blue

*Bright Blue

==#Start Colors==

This section currently defines a set of color overrides for the built-in colors. Before r10926, was required to be present for [[Colors.tbl##Team Colors|#Team Colors]].

The colors.tbl allows editing of the default color values used for text in various game locations, as well as being used for team color declarations, redefining interface colors, and modifying or adding new color tags.


This table is one of the Modular Tables and can be extended with xxx-clr.tbm
