I'd never understood what you wanted. So you don't want to use ^ to generate colors, you want it to just appear as a normal caret (^)? You might not like what you get.... Too many players and coders expect a ^ to indicate a color change. Anyway, in q_shared.h change the Q_COLOR_ESCAPE constant to something other than '^'.

no he means in names and text. For some reason demo and RtCW default have issues with the black color so if you used say ^8black text it wouldn't be black you'd have to do this say ^^8black text now some mods have fixed this problem (shrub and Wildwest, shrub is ^8 and wild west is ^0 {8-0,a-z are other shades of the rainbow})
