Is there a way to change the colors of the text? If so, how?

\c[x] Where x is a number. On your windowskin, bottom right corner, you'll see a bunch of colored squares. The first one, which should be white, is 0. It goes left to right, up to down. The engine defaults to \c[0] when nothing is input.

In message windows, use

\c[1]Hello!\c[0] This is text.

To get a blue "Hello!" and white "This is text". To my knowledge, this is only available in message windows, and won't work anywhere else. (There is one more place where it works, but I don't remember what. It won't work in menus though)

Not without either a script or doing it yourself. You'd literally be doing something like:

\c[x]H\c[y]e\c[z]l\c[a]l\c[b]o\c[c]!

If you wanted to do it without a script. And also have the colored squares in your windowskin.

@Zatch
Don't worry, we all start by having a lot of questions and little answers ;)
You can't find it because it's not in the installation directory but in the:
[Drive letter]:\Program files[ or program files(x86) depending on your operating system]\Common Files\Enterbrain\RGSS3\RPGVXAce\Graphics\System\Window.png

Thank you, Risewild! :D I too, am somewhat a noob. I really didn't understand that windowskin thing at first, lol until I found the skin.

What I'm gonna do now is play with my game, here, until I get a color down. I have four characters in my game and i want each of their names to have their own unique color. I'm gonna grab a sticky note, and write down the number of each characters color.

Like this, and stick it on my monitor when I'm typing dialogue:
Character 1 = \c[10]
Character 2 = \c[11]
Character 3 = \c[1]
Character 4 = \c[14]
Non Player Character (NPC) = \c[7]

And this is how you type the stuff in the dialogue box:
\c[3](insert dude's name)\c[0]: Holy cow! A man eating vegetable!
\c[1]insert other dude's name)\c[0]: Wowee! Since I had my appendix
out in a surgery, eating him would give my bowels problems for
weeks! What do we do!?

The \c[0] thing sets the text back to a default white color. I've put a picture file of the colors here, to show what each number means in the color code. And yeah, I made it myself... I hope it helps. It's a color reference so you don't have to experiment and play around so much when you're finding different colors. Also brings up another point, that if you wanna do custom colors, take the windowskin file there in the graphics folder and alter it in an image editor. Like, paint or something. you can also make your own text windows and stuff! It's cooool.
