This addon lets you become a flashing ball of color!
Something like hyper.txt but this isn't hyper.txt.

Spoiler: Images (Seizure warning?)
You can do stuff like this

Or this

You can make eye-pleasing transitions

Or be an asshat

Why even use hyper.txt

...when you can do this!

Who even uses hyper.txt lol

Spoiler: Usage
The command, colorblink, takes a variable amount of arguments.
Each argument is built in a specific way.

Colorblink expects that each argument has a color as an index, a minus sign (-), and a duration in tics, and lastly a space to separate each argument.

Let's analyze the example input:
$colorblink 4-10 1-8
If you were to use this command, you would become white for 10 tics, then black for 8 tics.
The first argument (4-10) has a color, a separator and a duration. This tells the script that the first color to change to is going to be white (4) for a duration of 10 tics.
The second argument (1-8) tells the script that the second color to change to must be black (1) for a duration of 8 tics.

That's it.

Spoiler: Commands and Cvars
colorblink <...>
Usage found above. Lets you start flashing colors.
It loops.
Use "clear" as the only argument to stop colorblink on you.

colorblinkvisual <0-3>
0 - Show nothing.
1 - Shows a grid of colors you can use, each color shown as a colored sprite with an index number below it.
2 - Shows a scrolling list at the bottom left with the colors you chose for colorblink. It will show "empty" if you have no set colorblink.
3 - Show both of these.

Probably planned:
  • Team color restrictions
  • Maybe add a spoiler block here with good and cool color choices

Players joining your server will be presented with a tiny epilepsy warning. They just have to open the console and type "agree", nothing special.
If you are playing singleplayer/splitscreen or you are the host, you pretty much automatically agree to it, so the screen won't be shown to you.

EDIT: Psst
I've noticed that some players use "colorblinkv2.wad" on their servers.
v2 is actually the pre-releases version of Colorblink.

That should cover everything.

Welcome to Releases!
Science tells us that nothing can be proven, only rendered more likely to be true. If we do not question what we already know, how can we know, much less admit, when we're wrong? Such things are vital to progress.

A cool idea, good job. It will come in handy when you want super colors, as you can just do this instead of all that confusing lua.
