Colors

In PewPew 1.2 (not yet released), you can colorize you nickname. It uses what I call the "Quake 3 text color convention". Indeed, in Quake 3 you could colorize your nickname by inserting "^X", where X would be a number between 0 and 7. Each number was associated with a certain color.
For instance the nickname "^1Hello" would appear red. "^4World" would appear blue. You could even do combinations, like "^1Hello^4World".
Well the same thing is possible in PewPew 1.2, except that there are more colors to choose from.

The new feature in action

Here is a picture showing each color, with its associated symbol:



I hope this will result in a colorful online score table! (more on that later).
