How to change GZDoom Startup color theme + Doom map color?

Hey, I was wondering how to change the color of the font that starts up when a mod is launched? Since we are talking about changing the colors of something, I was also wondering if you can change the color of the map and the lindefs it reveals?

I'm not exactly sure what you mean by "color theme" here, but I know you can tweak the startup screen in a few ways (and that includes the colors) via the GAMEINFO lump. And as for the colors on the automap, I don't think they can be customized by a mod. But you can set up your own color scheme in GZDoom itself via the "Automap Options" menu. (you may need to switch to the "Full options menu" for that first, though)

Ahh, Thanks. I have been wondering how to change the color codes forever. Could not find any info about it whats so ever (probably my wording.)
Didn't realize it was so easy.

So create a GAMEINFO lump, then add:
Code: Select allExpand view
STARTUPTITLE = "My Custom Title" <--- Wad Name
STARTUPCOLORS = "E10600", "338331" <--- Startup Colors


And to make it even more convenient, I will add a hex color selecter I used to select the color coodes.

Yeah you can. You just create a MAPINFO/ZMAPINFO with this either included or in the file itself.

Geez, I could've sworn it wasn't there yesterday. (I knew I should've gotten more sleep...) Well, good to know it's possible, then. Thanks for claryfing this!
