Lua Command msg2



  • id
  • "text"


Sends "text" to a certain player (id) only. It will be displayed in the chat area of the screen of that player (bottom left).
You can start "text" with an RGB color code "©RRRGGGBBB...." to change its color. (use a colorpicker to get the values)

It's also possible to display the text at the center of the screen. Just end "text" with "@C" (read: at center) to do so!

Sample 1: Showing a text to player 1 only
msg2(1,"hello, world")

Sample 2: Showing a green text (note that there is no space behind the color tag) to player 3 only
msg2(3,"©000255000This message is green!")

Sample 3: Showing a text at the center of the screen to player 5 only
msg2(5,"This text is displayed at the center@C")

Note: You can prefix the text with "UTF-8:" to pass encoded UTF-8 strings to this function. Use this tool to encode strings!
