The cancel event and send message is omitted from the table

Pseudocode​

Player Event Chat Message
{
‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ Game Action Cancel Event;

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ // In set variable block, go to General>>Set Variable
‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ Dynamic Variable World_ToReplace = "&";
‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ // Replace "&" above with any character you want

‎ ‎ ‎ // In set variable block, go to Text>>Replace Characters In Text
‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ Set Variable Replace Chars
‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ (
‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ Dynamic Variable %player%msg_color,
‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ Game Value Player Message,
‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ Dynamic Variable World_ToReplace,
‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ Text "&"
‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ );

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ // In set variable block, go to Text>>Combine Text
‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ Set Variable Combine Text
‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ (
‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ Dynamic Variable %player%msg_out,
‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ Switch Text Separation = No seperation,
‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ Text "%player &8» &f",
‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ Dynamic Variable %player%msg_color
‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ );
‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ // In player action block, go to Communication>>Send Message
‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ Player Action Send Message ALL (%player%msg_color);

}
You may also customize the color code tag as shown in the code above. For example, you can have "\" as a color code tag.
&bblue hair = blue hair
\bblue hair = blue hair

How it works​

When a player sends a message with color codes, the message content is accessible through Game Value Player's
Message. The content of the message in the game value is raw text (meaning, no color, strikethrough, etc). This also
means the color code tag '&' in the message is in the game value

The Set Variable functions however, does take into account the color code formatting. By replacing color code tag
"&" (or anything else you would like, example "\") with "&", it will properly parse the color code and show the color
Happy coding!

Been almost two years since I last did a guide (quality a bit bad), hi again
