JK2 turned twenty in March! I got a chance to sit down with 5 of the developers of Jedi Outcast over a Zoom call and it's clear that they were truly passionate about this game and consider it their proudest achievement. Watch the video and listen as they reminisce about development and that era of their careers!

Using colour in your text/name

Talon Senatu

In Jedi Academy, it's possible to easily change the color of any text your write. You can do this by typing ^ + the desired color code, followed by whatever you want to write. It will immediately change into that color while typing it.


Colors work like this:

^0This ^1Is ^2A ^3Very ^4Color^5ful ^6Text, ^7Mate

Which will show ingame as:


This Is A Very Colorful Text, Mate

You can not only do this for your name, but also for chat messages. The following color values are available:

^0   =   BLACK

^1   =   RED

^2   =   GREEN

^3   =   YELLOW

^4   =   BLUE

^5   =   CYAN

^6   =   MAGENTA

^7   =   WHITE


^8   =   ORANGE

^9   =   GREY


Black can be odd to work with however. You need an additional ^ for black in names as long as you don't run OpenJK or similar mod that changes that. For example:

^^0Kyle = ^Kyle

The extra ^ is unavoidable in basejka.

8 and 9 are also available but do not provide any new colors in base JKA. It is recommended that you avoid using these two if you are on a pure vanilla or JA+ server. These have since been fixed in OpenJK. 8 is Orange and 9 is Grey.
