still havnt figured this stuff out yet lol
To use it you first need to download and install the .net framework which you can get from the microsoft website, the direct link to it is http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=085 6EACB-4362-4B0D-8EDD-AAB15C5E04F5&displaylang=en
Once you've installed .net then download the latest version of the colour changer from my website at http://stars.atlantissoftware.co.uk/StarsPlayerColoursChange r.exe and execute it, you should then get a screen as shown in the image at [img]http://stars.atlantissoftware.co.uk/colours.png[/img]
If you get that screen then the app is successfully running, you then need to change the filename in the textbox to point to your stars exe, once you have done so click the load .exe button and the labels should change to the existing colours that are used in the executable.
Double click on the player you want to change and a dialog box will come up allowing you to select a colour to use, once you've selected a colour click ok and the label should change to the new colour you picked, repeat this double click/select colour/OK sequence for each player you want to change and when you've finished click the save .exe button.
Load up a game in stars and you should see the new player colours, if all you see is white text then click the view option and select player colors if it is not already ticked, if you are not seeing any text on the map then click the abc button and the 35 button next to it so they appear pressed down. You will always see white text for your own planets and ship counts and for any unoccupied planet, you will only see colours for enemy planets and ship counts.
If you follow the above and are still having problems then let me know how far you are managing to get and details of any message if any that you are getting. It will only change the 2.6JRC4 english version of stars, if you are using something else instead then you can download it from the autohost website at http://starsautohost.org/files/stars26jrc4.zip
