But I did try every colour I know! Blue and red! Both in white!!!

Ok back, I mean...
I made black with shadow, white.
I made white with shadow, white.

Should I see difference in there?
Well, I dont...

Oh and I did try dark red and light red... Both white...

Maybe the thread The use of ASCII code in nickname has the information you want.

How to change the format of your name

Tutorial:
-----------
User's guide for text formatting

Use the following strings to give a particular style to your nicknames/Game names:
$000 to $fff: color
$i: italic
$s: shadowed
$w: wide spacing
$n: narrow spacing
$m: normal setting
$g: default color
$z: reset all
$$: ta write a "$"

For the colour: the 3 characters after the $ are 16 values going from 0 to f (0123456789abcdef). The first character represents the red color, the second green and the third blue.
Here are some colour examples:
$000: black
$f00: red
$0f0: green
$00f: blue
$ff0: yellow
$f80: orange
$f0f: pink
$0ff: light blue
$888: grey
$fff: white

For example, to write "The Boss " with "The" in italic and "Boss" in large red, you should type:
$iThe $z$w$f00Boss

I don't like the next thing:
I'm SKID, not skid....but when I tried to create login SKID in TMU, TMU created login skid.
Yes, I have coloured nickname ($s$fff$wSK$ff0I$fffD) but as author of the tracks I am only skid, not SKID, not $s$fff$wSK$ff0I$fffD.

:(
