colors in c#
homelessgames (2)

Console.ForegroundColor = ConsoleColor.DarkBlue;
Console.BackgroundColor = ConsoleColor.Yellow;
Console.Write("Hello ");
Console.ForegroundColor = ConsoleColor.Yellow;
Console.BackgroundColor = ConsoleColor.Red;
Console.Write("les couleurs");
Console.ForegroundColor = ConsoleColor.Black;
Console.BackgroundColor = ConsoleColor.White;
Console.Write(" dans la console\n");

This code in C# is supposed to put some colors on my text, but it always put it in white. why?

The default terminal right now only supports basic ANSI colors (e.g. "\e[32mtext\e[0m" prints out "text" colored green). If you accept the "explorer" role, it will let you use a wip xterm terminal which might work.
