I've looked at some of the other subjects but can't seem to find my answer. I don't use a terminal file editor to edit mudtitle.ans and I want to make a ansi title for my mud. How do you make the escape character required to do ansi colors?

It depends on the editor. With (g)vi(m), you press ctrl-v then the escape key.

In some editors you can hold down the <alt> key as you enter 27 then release the <alt> key. Some editors even have the option to directly insert an escape (ascii 27) character. Which editor are you using?

Another option is to download a copy of an ansi drawing program like TheDraw [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TheDraw] or PabloDraw [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PabloDraw] and making it in that.

I was using gedit to do it.

PabloDraw works perfectly fine for making ANSI title screens, Thank you very much for your help.
