    Hi guys. Do you want colors in your Map/Film description ? =)
    Yes ? So, this tutorial is for you. Enjoy !

    An example of a result:
    [​IMG]
    It's not really a Green, but a Yellow greened.

    Step 1: Make your file.
    Step 2: Extract the file from your Xbox 360.
    Step 3: Open it with a Hex Editor.
    Step 5: Search and replace your text description by the color code.
    (Offset 0000D060)

    Example: <color argb=#ff76a1d3>Description</color>

    [​IMG]

    Step 6: Save, Rehash, Resign and upload back to Xbox.
    --------------------------------
    (Verified) Colors codes:
    <color argb=#55FFFFFF>Description</color>
    <color argb=#ff76a1d3>Description</color>
    <color argb=#FFe8ea1e>Description</color>
    <color argb=#FFa1b375>Description</color>
    <color argb=#FF8692d4>Description</color>
    <color argb=#FFb139b5>Description</color>

    Ill researched this stuff and found some new symbols that a friend of mines will be making applications out of. Also I found some new variables that show different results. Things like:
    <controller0_gamertag/>
    <lobby-multiplayer-map/>
    <color-armor1/>
    <lobby-campaign-level/>
    <lobby-campaign-difficulty/>
    <party_size/>
    and MANY others. They are found in the halo 3 locales in strings like "<color argb=#ff76a1d3>TOTAL EXP:</color> <xp-value/>" The FF in the beginning is the alpha which defines opacity from what I can infer.
    Here is a long list of locales extracted from the mainmenu.map
    Code:
    WEAPONS <color argb=#55ffffff>(1 of 7)</color>
    VEHICLES <color argb=#55ffffff>(2 of7)</color>
    EQUIPMENT <color argb=#55ffffff>(3 of 7)</color>
    SCENERY <color argb=#55ffffff>(4 of 7)</color>
    TELEPORTERS <color argb=#55ffffff>(5 of 7)</color>
    SPAWNERS <color argb=#55ffffff>(6 of 7)</color>
    GOALS <color argb=#55ffffff>(7 of 7)</color>
    <item _name/>
