Player colors

I am using Zun Tzu to playtest prototypes of games I am designing, and realized it would be straightforward to match the color of the playing pieces to the colors that Zun Tzu assigns to players as they log in, for ease of play (ie, it's much easier to remember that "Jeff, whose name panel is yellow, controls the yellow pieces"). I am assuming the colors are assigned to players in the order that they log in, and that the colors will always be assigned in that order. Eg, the host is "yellow", the 1st player to connect is "blue", etc. Is this correct?

If so, could someone who knows provide the colors that will be assigned to the players in the order that they will be assigned as players connect?

Thanks,

-Jeff

Yes, Jeff, that's how it works.
Following your suggestion I'll implement the possibility to select a player's color in a future version.

Jerome, ZunTzu developer. Thanks Jerome. Actually, I'm fine with how it works currently, I was just wondering if you or someone could tell me what colors will be assigned as players join (I've never played a game with more than 2 players so far!) That way, I can modify my gamebox so that the player pieces in my gamebox match the colors that Zun Tzu will assign to the players automatically.

I know that...

1st player = Yellow
2nd player = Blue
3rd player = ?
4th player = ?
5th player = ?
6th player = ?

Could you fill in the blanks?

Thanks again,

Ok, had a chance to play a multiplayer game tonight. It appears that it goes like this:

1st player: yellow
2nd: dark blue
3rd: green
4th: teal
5th: white
6th: purple
7th: ?
8th: ?

But I think I have as much info as I needed. Thanks again!

Here is what the colors look like:

-A lot of the colors end up looking the same to the naked eye because the RGB values aren't appreciably different. Kind of a bummer. I ended up making an alphabet terrain sheet so I could label player areas on the table with their names rather than match colors.

-I can also confirm that you can connect up to 23 clients to the host (24 total players). When I tried to connect a 25th player ZunTzu crashed.

-I was only able to see 16 players, the rest got cut off the bottom (I disconnected a bunch of players so I could paste in the second row in the screenshot above...they don't actually appear that way in the app.) My desktop resolution is 1366x768, so you might be able to see more at a higher res.

-Each client see the player list in the same order with the same colors except that their name is always first (so if you were thinking of tucking cards under each players' name it won't work.) :)

-Updated Jerome's list with more detail:

1) FFFF00 yellow (hosting player)
2) 0000FF blue (first player to connect)
3) 00FF00 green (second player to connect)
4) 00FFFF turquoise (third...)
5) EFEFEF grey - APPEARS WHITE
6) EF00EF purple - APPEARS PINK
7) EFFFEF light green - APPEARS WHITE
8) EFEF00 gold - APPEARS YELLOW
9) EFEFFF light blue - APPEARS WHITE
10) FFEFEF pink - APPEARS WHITE
11) 00EFEF dark turquoise - APPEARS TURQUOISE
12) EF0000 dark red - APPEARS RED
13) EFFFFF light turquoise - APPEARS WHITE
14) FFEF00 orange - APPEARS YELLOW
15) 00EFFF - TURQUOISE
16) 00EF00 - GREEN
17) FFEFFF - WHITE
18) 0000EF - BLUE
19) FFFFEF - WHITE
20) FF00EF - PINK
21) 00FFEF - TURQUOISE
