Hardwood has some preset binds that you may use. To see a list of the preset binds and any binds you have made type /binds into your hardwood chat screen.

The first step to making binds is understanding that you may use a shortcut - a #, letter, combination of letters, or a word to represent something you want to say on hardwood.

For example:

If you want to so say hello to the room but do not want to type "Hello Everyone" everytime you can make the following bind:

/bind h=Hello Everyone!!!

when you type the above into hardwood chat, all you have to do from then on is type: /h and what will come out is:

Hello everyone!!!

However you must remember that you may not name a bind in CAPS.

SO WHILE THIS WILL WORK: /h ..... THIS WILL NOT: /H

Ok, now you may also add colors and smiles to your binds. We will first start start with colors:

Hardwood uses color codes to represent colors. Below are an example of some of the color codes available:

~[C0] =black, ~[C1]=darkblue,~[C2]=darkgreen, ~[C3]=darkcyan, ~[C4]=darkred, ~[C5]=darkmagenta, ~[C6]=brown, ~[C7]=grey, ~[C8]=darkgrey, ~[C9]=blue, ~[C10]=green, ~[C11]=cyan, ~[C12]=red, ~[C13]=magenta, ~[C14]=yellow, ~[C15]=white, ~[C16]=gold, ~[C17]=brightgold, ~[C18]=orange

For a full list of color codes please click here.

THE FIRST THING YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT USING COLOR CODES, IS THAT IF YOU TYPE THE CODE CORRECTLY INTO HARDWOOD CHAT, THE CODE WILL DISSAPEAR, AND THE VERY NEXT THING YOU TYPE IN WILL BE THE COLOR OF THAT CODE. THE MOST COMMON MISTAKE WHEN TRYING TO ADD COLOR IS FORGETING THE ~ SYMBOL... ALL COLOR CODES USE ~[C] WITH NO SPACES.

ok now lets turn that dull Hello Everyone!!! bind into a spiffy Hello Everyone!!!.

Type this into hardwood chat:

/bind h=~[cff0000]Hello Everyone

then type /h and you should see Hello Everyone!!!

You may also use as many colors as you can fit into a bind

so for something like this: Hello Everyone!!!

you would type the following:

/bind h=~[c11]Hello ~[cff0000]Everyone~[c1]!!!

Then when you type /h you should see Hello Everyone!!!

 

THE MOST COMMON MISTAKE WHEN MAKING A BIND IS TYPO'S. SO IF YOU ARE NOT GETTING YOUR DESIRED RESULTS DOUBLE CHECK WHAT YOU ARE TYPING INTO YOUR BIND.. I SUGGEST COPYING AND PASTING ONE OF THE ABOVE BINDS IF YOU ARE HAVING PROBLEM SO THAT YOU CAN SEE THAT THEY ACTUALLY WORK :)

OK NOW FOR SMILES:

For a list of smiles you can type /smilies in hardwood chat.

To add a smiley to one of your binds all you do is incorporate the smiley code

 :-D Big smile
 8-) Cool
 :-/ Darn
 X-O Dead
 X-P Dead tounge
 >-( Disgusted
 >-D Evil laugh
 :@ Jawdrop
 :-o Oh dear
 :-L Sidemouthdrop
 :) Smile
 :-( Sad
 :-Y Smoking
 [-(   Sorrow
 :-X Taped
 >-@ Urked
 ;) Wink
 :-S Worry
 X-( Xeyesmad
 I-) ZZZ
 :lol Loony
 :bandit Bandit
 :angel Angel
 :devil Devil
 :afk Away from keyboard
 :brb Be right back
 :music Music
 :stars Stars
 :rainbow Rainbow
 :duck Duck
 :gstar Green star
 :rstar Red star
 :bstar Blue star
 :star Star

OK now to make that colorful Hello Everyone!!! a bit more festive like: Hello Everyone!!! type the following:

/bind h= :-D ~[c11]Hello ~[cff0000]Everyone~[c1]!!! :-D

and you should get: Hello Everyone!!!

You will notice that sometimes the smilies cover up letters. if that happens just put in an extra space or 2 after or before the smiley as needed. You may use up to 6 smiles in a bind.

Hopefully you have a general understanding of how to make a bind now. Some times you want to type something in color but do not want to type in the code everytime, here is a quick time saver in that circumstance. Make a bind for each color that you use frequently.

EXAMPLE:

/bind r=~[cff0000]

&

/bind y=~[c14]

now when you type /r anything after it will be Red

and when you type /y anything after will be Yellow.

Ok I hope that has helped any of you that may be having trouble

 

HAPPY EUCHRE-ING EVERYONE
