    [WotLK][Release] Change the login screen text color.

    change login screen text color

    Not sure if this was posted before or if it will be useful to anyone but here it is anyway.


    Thought id try the way i use to change npc names and item name colors and it worked. You add the color code in front of the word or sentence and |r at the end in gluestrings.lua. Example "|cFFFF0000Remember Account Name|r" will turn it red.

    Edit: Ill try and be more descriptive, this is for 3.3.5 client. Use ladiks mpq editor and open locale-enUS.MPQ in wowfolder/data/enus. Click on interface then on GlueXML and find GlueStrings.lua right click and extract to where ever you like now close mpq editer. Open GlueStrings.lua in the extracted file with note pad and find for example SAVE_ACCOUNT_NAME = "Remember Account Name"; and add a color code in front of Remember Account Name and |r at the end. example "|c006633AARemember Account Name|r" this will turn it purple. Click file and save and close note pad. Now use ladiks mpq editor to make the edited file a patch and put it in your wow/data folder. here is a link to lots of color codes you must add |c00 before each of these codes for them to work. http://www.pagetutor.com/common/bgcolors1536.png and here is a pic of login screen colors changed http://i.imgur.com/Iqa2UEQ.png
