Chat color codes formatting issue


Recommended Posts

Hello, if I wanted to send a colored chat message to a user, including § in that string (for example §4Hello), the text is still white and some random characters are shown in the place of §. Is there anything regarding to chat colors that I missed? Please let me know, thank you!

Screenshot: http://prntscr.com/uk9apt (supposed to be §4§l | §c Thank you for ...)

  1. Your character encoding is set incorrectly. Use UTF-8 everywhere. Yes, you need to tell javac about it explicitly.
  2. Those formatting codes are ancient legacy crap. Do not use them. Use the ITextComponent API which provides you with ways to set formatting.

Thank you. Can you please link some documentation to ITextComponent?
