I'm making my own texture pack in Minecraft and was playing around with the lang.eng file to change the text color for items/menu and so on.

I came up with a problem I am having: let’s say I want to change color for the render distance setting for chunks, I can change the title names color but the number for the chunks I select doesn't change.

How do I change the color of %s tho I assume that is the string after the name for the numbers?

The symbol for changing colors is: §

For a list of the compatible color codes, check out this website: https://www.digminecraft.com/lists/color_list_pc.php

For example, in the lang file, you would have something to the effect of:

"subtitles.entity.creeper.primed": "§c§lCreeper hisses"

In this example, "l" makes it bold, and "c" makes it red.
