An Infoblock is a game object which is used to provide non-obvious information for the player. It is displayed as a green block with a white exclamation mark. When jumping against the block from below, a message is displayed.


The message is formatted line-wise. The first character of each line determines how the line is formatted. The first character is not printed. The parsing is done in three functions defined in src/supertux/info_box_line.cpp. The colors are defined in src/supertux/colorscheme.cpp.

- (dash) Heading Big Heading color (yellow)
* (asterisk) Reference Normal Reference color (blue)
# (hash) Normal (left) Normal Normal color (white)
