Well, when I made a new profile. I added all my font changes, and clicked "OK" and it looked just right. Then when I clicked internet, I had to make a new account. I get in game, but my name looks like this for some reason, anyone know why? See image below.

Nobody has mentioned the 'h' tag!

Used for creating links to manialink pages.

for example:
$hGenerator$z would link my name to my manialink page 'generator'.

(and no, Im not spamming my pages coz theres nowt on them as yet!)

Hope this helps.

hi everyone,

im new to this forum, thanks to this thread i got a nice yellow fading to white name tag, but i cant get the shadow to work. id really like to get it working so it would be the same colours as my car yellow-black-white.

this is what im trying = $s$i$fe0Z$ff3e$ff6@$ff9l$ffCo$ffft
works fine except the shadows, i even left out the italic but that still not worked.

I would also like to say thanks to the OP for this thread. As i'm pretty new to the game and have seen all these cool NICKS in Game i wanted to do it my self and hopefully with all the posts i can get what i am after.

At first i want my nick "MrSTi" in blue MR then pink for STi but then decide i wanted to fade from Blue to Pink. So the "M" in Mr is Blue to Pink for the "i" in STi is Pink. To be honest i am struggling a bit on the coding for it. Also to be a pain if it fits i wanted "Mr" in Bold and "STi" in Italics, bold also if that fits.

With out fading colors i think its

$o$00fMr$i$f0bSTi (dont need to use the $z reset as Sti is to be bold also).

So if someone could do the MrSTi with the "Mr" in bold and "STi" in Bold/Italics, fading from Blue->Pink that would be great.

Thanks Again for the thread,

Scott
