Font Guide


Different commands can be used in RuneScape to make your text show up in another color, or with another effect. This guide will tell you about all the different commands, and how to use them.

After ALL commands, you must include a colon ( : ), or it will not work. Also, commands must be put in the beggining in your message, so it is not possible to write half of the message in white, and the other half in red.

Basic colors

Command Color
No command Makes the font yellow
white: Makes the font white
cyan: Makes the font cyan / light blue

green: Makes the font green

Flashing and glowing text

In additions to the basic colors, you can use commands to make your text flash or glow.

flash2: Text flashes from dark blue to cyan to dark blue.
flash3: Text flashes from light green to dark green to light green.

glow2: Text color changes: red-pink-purple-blue-purple-red.
glow3: Text color changes: white-light green-dark green-light green-white-cyan


In addition to the colors, you can add effects such as shaking or waving text.

Command Efffect

slide: Text slides down from the top, stops in the middle, then slides down and disappears
wave: Your text moves up and down like a wave.
wave2: Text moves in a wave left to right
shake: Text moves like a wave, but the wave gets smaller until the letters stop moving


  • Never combine 2 or more colors or 2 or more effects.
  • Color always before effect.
  • Never CAPITALIZE anything (it will automatically capitalize the first word of your text).
  • Always place a colon after the effect name or color.
