If you used this prior to October 12th 2016 then you need to update your existing bookmark.

 

I've written a little application to help you edit your crew colour.  You can either enter a hex value, use the colour picker, or load an image from a URL and pick a colour directly from it.  Rather than have some massive piece of code in a bookmark I've simplified the whole thing into one line.  Simply copy and paste the following code...

javascript:(function(){var script=document.createElement('script');script.src="//www.furrymonkey.co.uk/_external/gta/edit-crew-colour.js";document.getElementsByTagName('head')[0].appendChild(script);})()

Then create a new bookmark in your browser and call it something like "Edit crew colour", and paste the code you just copied as the address or URL.

 

When you go to your crew page and you're in the edit tab (where the crew colour can be set), just click the bookmark when you want to edit the colour and it will pop up the dialog as shown here...

 

custom-crew-colour-editor-1.png

 

 

Use that dialog to set your crew colour to anything you like, and then click "ok" to set it.  You must also save your changes with the save button at the bottom of the page, as before.  If it tells you that it couldn't save for some reason then it will tell you it was attempt 1 of 32 (currently - that may change).  Click save again and it will try a different combination that may save your colour.  It's rare that you'll have to do this more than a few times and unlikely you'll ever find a colour that won't save with any of the 32 tries.

 

If you want to change the colour again you can either click the bookmark or just click the colour button on the page.  Once the script is loaded it will stay available until you leave the page.

 

To use an image to choose a colour, either type or paste the image URL into the text box in the dialog and press enter to load the image...

 

custom-crew-colour-editor-2.png

 

 

You can then click anywhere in the image to select the colour under the mouse.  This is helpful for when you have photos of vehicles and you're trying to match the colour.  It will never be exact as the colours in the game are slightly different from what you see in real life, but you can get close enough and then make minor adjustments from there, should you need to.

 

 

If you have any requests for help with finding the right colour then please don't ask for them here.  There's already a very good thread where there are lots of people helping out with that...

Update notes

 

15th June, 2016

Added a "recently used colours" box where any colours you recently saved are shown, up to a maximum of 24.  (It only shows colours saved from now on.)

 

9th June, 2016

Fixed issue where the colour picker was picking the wrong colour if the browser page had been scrolled at all.

 

8th June, 2016

Updated website to use https protocol, in order to work with the recently updated Social Club.

You'll need to direct questions about colours at the thread I linked above.

Does this work on windows 10 and on Firefox? I tried and the screen goes white and in the top left corner it says

 

[object object]

 

 

 

I hope you can figure it out.

I did, yes.  It's something I *always* forget about when making bookmarklets, that's specific to Firefox.  I never use it so it always slips my mind.  It should be good now :)

Okay - there's obviously some teething problems.  That I need to iron out.

Furry_Monkey, sometimes you are an angel, despite crew emblem problems I am just about to start using the

crew colour editor to design some wacky colour cars so this will come in very useful!

I've tested it in Firefox and it works perfectly for me, so I don't know what your problem could be.  Does the colour not change at all when you're hovering over the image?

You're welcome mate, but let's get it working for you first ;)

 

When you say "nothing changes" can you explain a bit more?  I guess the dialog shows and you pick a colour and then click "ok", but are you saying it doesn't change the colour on that page when the dialog closes?

Is this mobile optimized? And I can't find the feature to upload crew emblem. Could you help point it out for me?

No - this is desktop only.  It will function on a mobile device, but (depending on what it is) you probably won't be able to see the whole thing.  I have no plans to make this mobile friendly.

 

Not sure what you're asking about the crew emblem, as this is just for editing crew colours.

Oh sorry, thanks for the info. I re-read the person who replied about an emblem tool and realized that he/she/shim was talking about a separate tool you made which no longer works. But I will try this color tool tonight.

Using Firefox and tried changing the color to pure black, gave an error about being "unable to save it and trying next combination", then it saved. I left the page and returned, the crew color is like transparent or something now.

I'm not sure what that means and I can't get in the game right now to see what color it gives me :p

Also I tried other colors prior, and it still gave me the error about not being able to save them.

 

Update: just went on quickly to see and it did work (crew paint is pure black, or at least looks like it), however it's confusing why/that it would look like that on SC

Will try other colors tomorrow

 

Update2: Read thread on custom crew colors and realized it's supposed to be displayed like that. Guess I have no more problems. Thanks for the amazing app :D

Yeah, when you go back to the SC just run the bookmark again and it will show you what colour you chose.  Stupid Rockstar, with their stupid restricted colours :p

I'm on Windows 10 and it worked fine for me, with Firefox and the image you linked here.

Nevermind, it's working now.

 

I like this! Makes it so much easier for dumb people like me so I don't have to mess around with the code and stuff myself.

Can you do me a favour?  Can you get a screenshot of it, but when you're hovering over the image and it's going to select green, so as you described?  I want to see if I can fix that.

Just press "print screen" and that copies your screen into the clipboard.  Then open MS Paint and paste your clipboard.  Save it as a jpg file and then upload it to something like imgur.com - it's free and straight forward enough.

 

Don't worry if you don't want to do it - it's no biggie.
