    Colored Game Names....

    So yesterday (or the day before, who knows) I'm sitting in our channel scanning the games, and I see "drop game" in green text. Since I have no desire to get scammed, I ignored it and kept looking. A few minutes later I see another one, not sure if it was the same game or not, but now the name is red. How do you get the name to showup in color? I was guessing that it is a hack of some type, because I have seen them before and it is always "drop game" or "I dupe 4 U" or some garbage like that. Sorry for the long winded-ness, just a little curious about this.

    It is a kind of hack and we are not allowed to talk in here.

    I figured that was it, just had to check. Is there any danger in entering the games and PKing them? I love squashing some Haxx0rs.

    Of course not, it's just a special color changing character.

    I personally don't find any problems that will rip you off unless you drop your items yourself :rolleyes:

    I appreciate your attempt at sarcasm, but it isn't really pertinent to this topic.
    OT: I wondered at first if it was a Blizz rep - kinda like how the mods names are a different color here. The only use I could think of would be to catch haxxors (entrapment) by luring them in to dubiously titled games. However, Blizz would have to care for something like this to happen so I dismissed the idea. It would catch more newbs than scammers. Oh well, not exactly critical info - like I said I was just curious about it.
    I thought that it would be OK, but you never know these days. Who would have thought you could base an entire economy on manipulating the servers?:evil:

    What part of my post was sarcastic?

    Are you serious?

    Just in case, I'll refresh your memory:

    It was that part ^^^

    Um, I wasn't being sarcastic. There's a special color changing character. That's how they do it Starcraft too. And in people's profiles. Every player-made map on Starcraft uses them. Perhaps you thought I meant character as in something you use to play the game as opposed to a typographical symbol?

    My apologies then, I thought you meant character as in "a Paladin". I've never played any other online games so these things are unfamiliar to me. Is that a "hack" or are you allowed to explain it within the forum's rules?

    Merick is right. It's not a hack. It's actually pretty easy to do. And to my knowing, people on Battle.net don't get any problems with it (like banning or muting...)

    People just qualify something as a hack when they don't know how it's done.

    Still, I prefer not explaining it, as I don't know if it's forbidden on these forums.
