    Awesome. I appreciate the help and I agree, if more people were able/willing to help, updates would get out much faster since it means less testing on my part, which is what usually takes up most of the time to do the patch. Also, testing alone isn't very good either.

    i hate that Essentials suck so much ass that it can't even work well with other plugins..

    lol, it's so easy?

    Well im gonna get rid of the Essentials plugin, but first i need some other plugins to take its place.
    Do anyone know where i can find som of them? i need theese (and more i think)

    /motd, /list, /nick, /rules, a give system like Essentials,
    TP system like /tp <name> and /tpa and so, /msg system.
    -------
    EDIT|
    -------
    /sethome and /home, a blacklist for commands regular users can't use,

    EDIT by Moderator: merged posts, please use the edit button instead of double posting.

    Essentials does basically what colorme does at the group level, it was recently patched to support not just coloured names but full group support for prefix and suffix. Previously all the code for displaynames was in the EssentialsChat jar file, but was moved outside because people wanted /nick support in all commands.

    There is an option to disable essentials touching display names in the config file, anyone without these options may need to update their config file.

    PHP:
    # A color code between 0-9 or a-f. Set to 'none' to disable.
    ops-name-color'c'

    # The character(s) to prefix all nicknames, so that you know they are not true usernames.
    nickname-prefix'~'

    # Disable this if you have any other plugin, that modifies the displayname of a user.
    change-displaynametrue

    # Adds the prefix and suffix to the displayname of the player, so it will be displayed in messages and lists.
    # The prefix/suffix can be set using Permissions, Group Manager or PermissionsEx.
    # The value of change-displayname (above) has to be true.
    add-prefix-suffixfalse

    That should already be patched in the last version I put up a few days ago. v2.4.1 addresses that issue.

    Are people not allowed to have competition? I thought this plugin is great at what it does. Not bloated, and it's used as needed! :D

    Exactly! That's why I made it. To be fast, lean, and do exactly as it says it does, no more, no less.

    Is the data being saved to the players.color file in the ColorMe folder?

    Umm, I'm not sure, how do I turn the saving feature on in the folder?

    If the file isn't there, then there aren't correct permissions set up for it to allow saving any data. It should be right there with the config file. If neither are there, fix your permissions.

    Old post is old! And the problem is that new users will download all three, because they think this is absolutely necessary to do it.

    No, no. I mean fix the folder permissions, for the file system. I don't mean for the Permissions plugin. You need to make sure the plugins folder has write permissions and that it's recursive so plugins are allowed to create data folders and write files to them.

    What plugins are you using. Just saying it doesn't work or being overly broad doesn't tell me anything. I need to know what plugins you have installed, the commands used, etc.

    Essentials is probably causing the problem. Essentials likes to screw up any and all plugins that alter a player's displayname.

    I got rid of EssentialsChat and it still didnt. Just let me know if you need more info

    Hmm, odd. The only other one I could think of being an issue is Permissions, but that usually doesn't interfere. Also make sure you have PermissionsBukkit to handle the permissions for ColorMe since it now uses built-in bukkit permissions.

    Oh ok thats why it doesnt work. I have Permissions 3.x not PermissionsBukkit. I hope you add Permissions 3.x support!

    Actually, I removed Permissions support because hooking into it means more resources being used up and it further complicates my code. Without it the code is much leaner and not so confusing for people to look at (including me). A good number of devs are trying to move away from Permissions and use native permissions instead since it means less work and faster plugins. Luckily you should be able to use both Permissions and PermissionsBukkit side-by-side until your plugins migrate over to native permissions.

    Same issue. This only happens when I have ColorMe and SimpleAlias running at the same time. The colours are saved in the players.color file, but I have to set my color again every time I login for it to actually work in chat. These are the only two chat-altering plugins I have. Any chance you could fix this? SimpleAlias hasn't been updated in forever (but still works), soooo yeah. Thank you!

    I'm betting it has to do with changing the event to fire on login when SimpleAlias is probably doing it every chat event or something. I prefer having it do it only on login, but it seems like that isn't working so well anymore

    Can I have a link to a older version of your plugin that supports permissions?

    Otherwise I hate you.

    I don't keep older versions. What's wrong with having PermissionsBukkit along with Permissions? I've always made it quite obvious that I didn't like relying on Permissions and at one point almost decided to not even use Permissions because I was so against it. None of my plugins will support the old Permissions plugin.
