I'm making a map, and I'm using the scoreboard, but I want it to show to first name/score to be maybe green and then the last ones to be a player name. Can anyone help me?


Text in Minecraft can be formatted with the section sign (§). In normal gameplay, the section sign can only be entered into Book and Quills. However, external programs can be used to insert it in other locations.

Messages sent from the server to the client can contain color codes, which allow coloring of text for various purposes.

A section sign (§) followed by a hex digit in the message tells the client to switch colors while displaying text.
