You have to go to profile and nickname to do it, and there is no storebought version of nations. make sure it is zero and not O

EDIT:There is also a limit to the maximum amount of characters you can put in your nickname.

I know why it does this.
you can only use color in your nickname, NOT YOUR LOGIN.
The dollar signs show up as _ if you put them in your login.
to change your login, go to Profile, and then type it in there under the "Nickname:" section.

Also, if someone wants to post a request about a color, maybe gradient color, just ask ;)

Have you tjecked that its your nickname or login name that shows??
When looking on the servers - click show all servers, in the right side there is a menu - click on advanced, and choose wether you wantr your login or your nickname to show! remember you have to make your nickname not your profile name back in the offline menu/game/editor! :wink:

sweet smilies by the way :roll:

if you want a gradient from red to blue, you have to decrease the red value, and increase the blue value for each letter.
For red: $f00
For blue: $00f

now to make the gradient, if you start with red, write the tags in this order (with the letters between):

I chose to lower the value by 2 each time.
Of course you can use other colors as gradients, but it's all about increasing and/or decreasing a value. :)

Hm - I too have problems with this formatting

First - the no. of characters are to few?

My name is NitroNumZie

I want the Nitro to be in green #093, italic with a shadow and then NumZie to be straight forward in white (don't know if shadow would look better).

But I have two problems:

1. I cannot get the shadow formatting done.
2. To few characters to put in all the code?
3. When I see the top-10 of my country and my name in the bottom it is all black?

I use this


But that doesn't work/is too long :(

It show Nitro in green italic (no shadow) and Num in white (no more characters)... in the profile

Is there a solution?
