ATC window transcript colours

Postby jjaycee » Thu Feb 02, 2017 8:53 am

When i follow the ATC chatter in the ATC window, the ground info/response is in dark blue type, but the aircraft text is in an unreadable burnt orange type. Is the any easy way to change the colour of the aircraft message typed wording to another colour so i can read it?

In the p3d confing look for this:
[ATC]
AutoOpenAirTrafficWindow=1
COMM_MSG_AI_ATC_COLOR=0XFF8C00
COMM_MSG_ATC_AI_COLOR=0X00008B
COMM_MSG_ATC_USER_COLOR=0X006400
COMM_MSG_ATIS_COLOR=00000000
COMM_MSG_USER_ATC_COLOR=0XA52A2A
PilotVoice=0
ShowATCText=1
UsePilotVoice=1

the color values are values that are also used on the internet.
change them and you wil get a different color.
look at wikipedia for the HTML color values you want.
you can fill them in a program such as photoshop and see the results when canged

cheers

I went to a website and found colours and I cut and pasted (ie: one of the lines) but it didn't change colours. Should I be doing something else to get it to work. I opened with notepad but maybe I should be using Notepad ++.
Thanks for any help. I think I want to throw up every time I see that orange and which one is for that one. AI_ATC or what.
