Quake is a computer game that is mainly played over the Internet. It is possible to use coloured characters in your name, if you use character-codes 128-255, the special characters that normally represent accents, maths symbols and things. This program makes it easier to make a colourful name.
Why I did it
People were memorising the codes for different characters and I thought that was a bit silly.
It was quite well-used by a few of my friends until a more professional program was released, that did all sorts of other games and patches as well.
