IGN color glitch

  1. This is very low priority, but I have noticed that sometimes, Certain names when you press the TAB key don't appear with the correct color. Usually it is just a supporter with regular white text. I have noticed it for two separate people but I haven't mentioned it to anyone else. Coincidentally they were both Gold supporters. Has anyone else noticed this, or am I just going crazy?

    I am not going to make a poll about that lol
    PenguinDJ, Equinox_Boss and Kells18 like this.
  2. This is simply the player names being too long for the code to show up on the tab list. It has a limited amount of characters that it can show, so it just shows the player name, instead of the color code, and part of the player name. Skilled_Creeper is a good example, he's a gold supporter, I believe.. But he always shows up as white named, hah.

    ...Or maybe, we're just trying to confuse the general public. ;)

  3. Thanks for the explanation Maxarias, I've often wondered this as well.
    What causes some peoples names to show up in black in the TAB menu?
  4. That is simply a new player who hasn't joined the Empire yet! Keep an eye on them, because soon, it'll say NAME has joined the Empire! :)
  5. Ok, this makes sense- I just realized at least one of the people I noticed had really long names
  6. Well despite my best efforts, I learned something today :)
