GAMEINFO background title color!?

Postby Logan MTM » Sat Nov 20, 2021 4:02 pm

Hi everyone!

Is there any chance to set the background color of the area behind the title?

In this case, change the Grey to BLACK! :mrgreen:

Spoiler:


Something like:

STARTUPCOLORS = "<foreground color>", "<background color>", "<background title color>"

Unless I am mistaken that is precisely what the second parameter does. Only caveat is if it's set to black it defaults to IWADINFO's color, so you have to set it a single tint off black.

Have you tried STARTUPCOLORS="#ff0000","#000001" ?

This sets it to a blue that is so dark it might as well be black, anyway.

Ooops, sorry - my bad.

STARTUPCOLORS="ff 00 00","00 00 01"

I (think) GZDoom will accept this format?

Interesting... Doesn't work with Black!

STARTUPCOLORS = "00 00 00", "00 00 00"

Yeah, that is because of the way it is coded.

There are a few lines of code that, when GAMEINFO startup colors are set to black, it retrieves the IWADINFO colors instead. That is by design, but I do not know if that is actually desirable.

Yes the suggestion already exists but it doesn't work with the color I tried. That's why I thought it wasn't possible.

Anyway, STARTUPCOLORS = "00 00 01", "00 00 01" deal the thing!

Thank you!

You're welcome.

I'm leaving this open mainly to see if Graf wants to change the behavior of this or not, since it is clearly not expected behavior - but it's also been a part of ZDoom so long now that it might be unchangeable anyhow. He's going to have to make the call on that one.

Wish me luck because i really liked that. :mrgreen:
The STARTUP looks so damn BEAUTIFUL even though it's not totally black "00 00 01". :wub:
Besides, it's just a detail from a mod that wouldn't do anything to anyone's gameplay. I suppose!

Sharing what has worked for me in hopes of that being useful:

STARTUPTITLE = " "
STARTUPCOLORS = "d000000", "000000"

This was actually black. I was aiming for empty black space, hence spaces in the title.
If I were to include a printable character it would output as red :)
