Forged Alliance Forever

The community-driven lobby for Supreme Commander : Forged Alliance.

Lobby 0.8.60

This version include some improvements for the chat :

  • When an user disconnects, it doesn’t blink private messages anymore.
  • Join/Quit messages are now displayed in black for more readability.
  • Custom colors for users is now supported.
  • Not directly related to the lobby, but some units in Blackops and Xtreme Wars (Tempest, Czar, Ticklord, teleportation…) are fixed.

Also, an old feature that may be unknown by many users : Ctrl + mouse wheel in the chat window allows you to increase/decrease the chat font. Shift allow you to scroll faster.

There is currently no interface for tweaking the colors.

Special colors can be customized in a theme, using “_res\chat\formatters\special_colors.json”

User colors¬†can be customized in a theme, using “_res\client\colors.json”

They are simple json strings. For custom users colors, it’s the colors.json file.

By default :

{"foe" : "crimson", "friend" : "lightskyblue", "player" : "silver", "server" : "black", "default" : "grey", "self" : "orange", "url" : "cornflowerblue"}

You can do for example do :

{"Gyle" : "Gold", "foe" : "crimson", "friend" : "lightskyblue", "player" : "silver", "server" : "black", "default" : "grey", "self" : "orange", "url" : "cornflowerblue"}

Now, Gyle has a magnificent gold color when talking!

The colors are standard HTML color tags:
