City of Heroes Cheats

Easter Eggs

  • NPCs and what information they give

    There are 7 different types of citizen NPCs in the game that give specific information depending on the letter their names start with:

    E - Official Real Time (based upon where Cryptic is located)
    F - Official Paragon City Time (in-game time)
    G - Number of heroes in the current zone you are in
    H - Lists random names of other heroes in current zone
    M - Gives total time played, for current hero, since hero creation
    N - Number of times you've logged into the game with current hero
    O - How long you've been logged in today with current hero (seems buggy though, resets after every indoor mission)
    J - gives statistics on how many times you've used a power today.
    K - gives statistics on how much damage you have dealt with your powers today.


    Both of these may take several clicks on the NPCs to see the desired results.
    To get this information, you need only stand near the wandering citizen NPC and left-click on them.

Secrets

  • How to change your text color

    Ok to change your text color type
    /bind enter beginchat <color xxxxxx><bgcolor xxxxxx><bordercolor xxxxxx>
    Replace the x's with color names or hex values with a # before the value
    If you are using hex values, putting two extra digits each 0-9 will make that aspect of the text box transparent to that % of transparency.
