is there anyway to mod the player colors? using the WRD tools? is the systemcolor.ndfbin the file needed to edit?

is it possible to change the player colors/team colors? say i want to replace the blue one with dark brown and the red one with light gray? i already tried to modify the pc\ndf\nonpatchable\systemcolor.ndfbin from the NDF_WIN.dat but the changes doesnt show in-game....


thanks for any help... I really want to play the campaign with the realism and not the blue color for my units and red for the enemy...

The last time I looked, we can look at the Hex color code in W:RD, but the developers of WMS never put in the code to edit that variable type. Still a great tool though.

the Color(A=200, R=121, G=89, B=40) is light Brown (The hex code is #795928C8) I did tried already to replace it with the gray one in instance number 12 but the changes didnt effect in-game.... please do help me out on this... maybe there are many others like me who wants to play offline skirmish and the campaign with team colors that blend in with the unit textures for immersion with the beautiful graphics of AoA..... :D

Take a look at gdconstantesoriginal.ndfbin. There are a lot of color stuff there, or at least were in W:RD.

i made a thread about this. basically the devs should allow us to freely pick our desired color in matches and not force red vs blue all the time.

feel free to bump it here: viewtopic.php?p=868433#p868433
