My buddies are new to NWN and are having trouble seeing the map notes because of the color. Is there any way to change their colors?

EDIT: Just to clarify, I ment "for the game", not "while in the game" .

    Sorry it took me so long to look in here.
    </c> // CLOSE tag
    <cþ  > // red
    <c þ >// green
    <c  þ>// blue
    <c þþ>// cyan
    <cþ þ>// magenta
    <cþþ >// yellow
    <c   >// black
    <c¥  >// dark red
    <c ¥ > // dark green
    <c  ¥>// dark blue
    <c ¥¥>// dark cyan
    <c¥ ¥> // dark magenta
    <c¥¥ > // dark yellow
    <c¥¥¥>// grey
    <cŒŒŒ> // dark grey
    <cþ¥ >// orange
    <cþŒ > // dark orange
    <cÚ¥#> // brown
    <c† >// dark brown
    
    Just surround your text with the color opening tag you want and the close tag.
    Example.
    <cþ¥ >Orange Map Note</c>

    Thanks for the response! How/where do I get those characters? I've never seen them before.

    Copy / paste. I found that list years ago and that's how they said to get the symbols into the game too.

    They work all over the game. If you can type them, they'll work in the chat.

    Those symbols are similar to how they change the colors in the builtin script x3_inc_string.
    It has the line:
    string sColorCodes = " fw®°Ìþþþ";
    
    I know you can find a bunch of them in the Windows Character Map, but I don't know what logic makes a symbol more or less impactful on the color.

    Wait... Have you been talking about the little diamond icon this whole time?

    Yes, but that's ok. This was great info. anyways. I'd like to change the color of the little diamond icon on the map though. The "pin" I guess you call it.

    Here's the tga files. If you can figure out how to change the color of the first one. Have your buddies put it in their override folder. That's the best that can be done.
