How to Color Separator Text

Question

Hello there, I've been trying to find a way to color the text for separators. The text color is either black and white, but sometimes it's black on a separator that shares the same color of others that have white text. I would really like to be able to control the color of both the separator bar and it's text.

I'm not aware of any way to control the font color Mod Organizer uses. It looks as if it is using an internal algorithm to determine whether the text should be black or white based on the color selected for the separator. If you open the meta.ini file for the separator (the separators are stored in the mods folder as a directory ending with _separator), you'll see the selected color in the color setting:

color=@Variant(\0\0\0\x43\0\xff\xff\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0)

I was initially hoping this was split into 7 bytes for the foreground color and 7 bytes for the background color, but this does not seem to be the case. I played around for a while and it looks as if these control only the background color.

Realized I had chosen a slightly different shade to cause the text to be black instead of white for one of them. Still, is there a way to choose text color in general?

Easy. Right-click the separator and choose "Select Color..." Text color will be chosen automatically to ensure visibility.

Vidistis wants to choose a text color, I assume. So sounds like it's not supported. Only background (which is supported, and I can attest to that with my many-colored separators).

Darn, thank you for the confirmation and insight. There's some colors that I'd prefer to be white instead of black, mostly for uniformity. I've recently switched from Vortex to Mo2 so I'm still ignorant to all it's features. I was hoping I had missed something; hopefully being able to choose the text color becomes a feature one day.

      Hi everyone,

      I have a portable installation of MO2 on a different drive than the OS, same drive where Skyrim is installed, and since I updated to Windows 11 I can't start Skyrim through MO2 either with or without all mods, SKSE. If I start it from outside of MO2 in any way, it works fine (with SKSE too). What could be the issue?

      Hey everybody, i ran into an issue that i was hoping someone would help me with.
      last night when i was installing my mods from STEP 2.0.0 Guide, my PC accidentally turned off and on again, after it turned back on and i went to open MO2 i found all my mods rearranged alphabetically into the last separator, and all of them were unticked. as seen in the screenshots.
      Is there a way to revert this and not go through the menace of rearranging all of the 310 mods into their separators? 
      Thanks.

      I'm having some troubles with Mod Organizer not detecting Fallout 3. I installed the game on my SSD and it doesn't detect the game and the game/launcher files aren't visible when manually searching for them. I've tried finding a fix here on the forums but couldn't find a fix. It's a fresh install on my SSD, the Mod organizer is also installed on said SSD. It's just odd that the files aren't showing up when I search for them through MO but I have no trouble finding them when I just search through the file explorer
