Text formatting

From Mania Tech Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Text formatting and colour codes in TrackMania and ManiaPlanet can be used for players' nicknames, track names and comments, music file comments, server names and comments, and in-game online chats.

Nicknames are limited to 20 characters in TM Original, Sunrise and Nations. Since United, this limitation doesn't exist anymore.

You can also add special Unicode (UTF-8) characters to a name (see TM forum topic).

Colour codes

To add a colour to a name simply input a $ followed by three hexadecimal digits from 0 to f (0123456789abcdef), which represent red, green and blue values ($RGB)

A small selection can be seen below:

$FFF $CCC $999 $666 $333 $000 $FC0 $F90 $F60 $F30

These codes are available in all TrackMania games:

$t Capitals
$i Italic
$s Shadowed
$w Wide spacing
$n Narrow spacing
$m Normal setting
$g Default color
$z Reset all
$$ Write a "$"

In TrackMania United, several new codes have been added:

$o Bold with semi-wide spacing
$h Internal link to a ManiaLink
$l External link to a website

The syntax of the links is the same as in ManiaLinks.

To link internally to another ManiaLink page, use $h. This will open the page in-game.

$h[maniaplanet://#menutitle=@TMStadium@nadeo]Trackmania² Stadium$h

To link externally, use $l. This will open the page in your standard web browser.

$l[https://wiki.xaseco.org/wiki/Main_Page]Mania Tech Wiki: Main Page$l

In TrackMania Forever, another new code has been added:

$p Link with player parameters to a script that should return a ManiaLink

The parameters are: ?playerlogin=<login>&lang=<language>&nickname=<nickname>&path=<location> (see TM forum topic for more info).
