Custom team colour

Post by WYRMY »

Hi.
I'm trying to create the custom colour yellow for my campaign. In team-colours.cfg, I have this:

Code: Select all

#define __COLOUR_RANGE _CR_ID _CR_RGB_R _CR_NAME
    [color_range]
        id={_CR_ID}
        rgb={_CR_RGB_R}
        name={_CR_NAME}
    [/color_range]
#enddef

#define COLOUR_YELLOW
    EEE000,FFFFFF,100F00,FFF000#enddef

#define CUSTOM_COLOUR_RANGE
    {__COLOUR_RANGE yellow ({COLOR_YELLOW}) ( _ "Yellow")}
#enddef
And in my scenario code, I have this. (example)

Code: Select all

    [side]
        side=10
        colour={COLOUR_YELLOW}
        no_leader=yes
        team_name=foes
        user_team_name= _ "team_name^Foes"
    [/side]
The actual colour shows up in the units ellipse, but not in the mini-map in the top right corner. Anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

I'm no WML wizard myself, but if you do manage to get a Yellow team colour working, would you mind if I borrowed your code for my campaign? I have a faction for which it seems the most appropriate team colour.

Sure. The colour does actually work, just what I meant was that in the mini-map it shows up as red.

Well, are you actually using that [color_range] as a top-level tag? You never tell whether you use your CUSTOM_COLOUR_RANGE macro anywhere or not.

Uh, I actually had no idea what I was doing. I just copied it from Invasion from the Unknowns team-colour cfg file. What should I actually do?
