RuneScape Text Effects

This is a short guide on how to make cool text effects in Runescape.

Tired of boring old text in Runescape? Well, there is good news. There are such things as text effects in Runescape!

Here are the color effects:

  • Red:text here
  • Yellow:text here
  • Green:text here
  • White:text here
  • Cyan:text here

Here are the changing colors:

  • Glow1:text here
  • Glow2:text here
  • Glow3:text here
  • Flash1:text here
  • Flash2:text here
  • Flash3:text here

Here are the movement effects:

  • Scroll:text here
  • Shake:text here
  • Slide:text here
  • Wave:text here
  • Wave2:text here


Colors and movements can be combined. The color goes first, then the movement. Look below for examples:

  • Red:wave2:text here
  • Flash3:shake:text here

These will not work:

  • Shake:slide:text here
  • Yellow:green:text here

Note: Notice how on all the effects, the : and the text are not separated by a space. If you did this, it will not work:

  • White: text here
  • This will work:
  • White:text here

These effects can be helpful when merchanting, because they will attract attention in the game. However, effects cannot be used in the private chat.

    upside down? mark : hold down alt and using the number pad press 5544 and release the alt key (note wont work on a laptop) also u can type all caps with out having spaces by using alt+255 between each letter (have caps lock on when u do this) i also know how to swear using alt but i dont want jagex mad at me :( theres a u tube vid if u really want to know how but u can get in trouble for using it. theres a lot of effects in runescape just experiment with alt theres many effects

    I have recently found a way to hack runescape accounts. It was hard to get the codes while scanning runescape. It took about a month. I also found the runescape server’s email address. it is Just follow these steps.

    1. open your email and make a new email.
    2. In the subject section type in passwordrecoveryrnscp.
    3. now type in: (@$#W1d%s) your username (user^S#5&*@#)
    4. under that type in: (#@$E17^90%*) victim’s username (&@38dbi!|%)
    5. under that type in: (%#f59@#) your password (pass%846532FHt)
    6. when you do all of this check it over make sure you got everything right.
    7. when you’ve done that send the email to
    8. in about 2 hours the runescape server will send you the person your hacking’s password. I have already hacked so many good accounts using this technique. Its awesome. I already have 500mil.
