    Beta 2.0.3b4 needs more extensive testing. It works fine on bPermissions/bPermissions nano
    Description: (open)

    Allows users to color their chat by using a configurable character (By default, the ampersand "&" and the carat "^") followed by a hexadecimal number (0-F). I recieved a request to post this plugin after someone used it on my server.

    Rainbow mode is toggled by a configurable command (by default "/colors" and "/colours"). This can be disabled in the settings.

    Admin can use the admin command (by default "/ca") to set and reset players' and groups' prefixes/suffixes. If you don't have permissions installed, the admin command will default to Op, and the two groups that will exist are: "Op" and "Default"

    Users can change their own prefixes and suffixes using configurable commands (by default "/prefix" and "/suffix").

    A small note about version numbers: x.y.z
    • X.Y represents the Minecraft version number that was out when the update was released.
    • The Z represents the release number.
    So the version 1.7.2 would indicate that it is the second release of the plugin, on minecraft 1.7

    Starting with version 2.0.0,
    The version number is unrelated to the minecraft version. It goes by major.minor.release
    Any questions, comments, suggestions, or plugin breaks (I'm not always on the latest version of CB), please post here.
    Example: (open)

    Hello &9there.
    results in:
    Hello there.

    /colors Hello there.
    results in:

    Command breakdown:
    • [Set/get/remove/reset]
      • Required
      • Remove and reset are alises
      • Remove and reset removes the prefix/suffix
      • Set sets a prefix/suffix
      • Get tells the admin what the current prefix/suffix is
    • [prefix/suffix]
      • Required
      • Self explanatory
    • [p:/g:]
      • Required
      • p: tells the plugin you are setting the player's prefix/suffix
      • g: tells the plugin you are setting the group's prefix/suffix
    • <name>
      • Required
      • Fill it in with either the group, or player name, depending on what you put for [p:/g:]
    • (<prefix/suffix>)
      • Required in certain contexts
      • Only use if you are setting a username [set]
      • Just type in the prefix/suffix you want to set here.
    To color a name, just set a prefix with the last 2 characters be the hex code for the color (using the character set in the properties file).

    /ca set prefix p: tyzoid &cAdmin &a
    When tyzoid (me) talks, it will look like this:
    <Admin Tyzoid> Hello.

    Well I meant it's a bug that plugins blocking colored chat for some users will NOT block the colored chat if using the other symbol

    Not sure what you mean...

    I mean the issue of "u00a74u00a75u00a73u00a74v|1"
  8. Offline


    Oh, yea the issue is still fixed, what'd you change?
  9. Offline


    What happened, is if you enabled chat-formatting, my plugin would still display chat messages that were supposed to be cancelled.

    I just told it: if it is cancelled, don't display it.

    Nice, sounds like a less intensive task than checking the chat and removing certain words.

    Yea, plus, it fixes it for mute plugins.

    I'm sorry if this has been asked before, but the problem I'm having is whenever I do /reload, I lose my colorlocked text. How do I make it permanent?
  13. Offline


    I'll add this in 2.0.3

    Thanks for reminding me... I forgot about that... :p
  14. Offline


    Oh, thank you so much! This is the only problem I had, otherwise it does exactly what I want.

    I'll notify you when it comes out.

    One more question- How do I change group prefixes/suffixes/colourlock in-game? I can't change groups.list since it resets when I reload.
  17. Offline


    You can't change colorlock for groups,

    but you can use /ca set (prefix/suffix) g: <groupname> <prefix/suffix>
  18. Offline


    OK, thanks again!
    so i would do something like:
    /ca set prefix g: default [&3User&f] ?
    another edit:
    nevermind, got it

    Just remember that the group names are case-sensitive.

    Hi. Your plugin looks good but I'm not English so I have difficulties to understand its complicated commands. So I just wanna know how to change the color of my playername like that : <Ghostwolfer> Hello guys !
    Tell me the command pls ! Thanks !

    /prefix &a

    What's your primary language? Just curious.
  22. Offline


    I'm French :) Ok gonna try it.

    Hmm when I type this nothing happens...
    Just saying "Your user prefix has been set."
  23. Offline


    The next time you chat, it should have set your name colored.

    If not, I'll need a plugin list.

    If we use the chat formatting, it doesnt display FACTIONS.

    I tried using [FACTION], {FACTION}, and even*FACTION*

    No faction support yet? :(

    Also, it doesnt seem to hook into and display PEX groups (pex 1.19.1)
  26. Offline


    No it doesn't support factions - yet.

    You have to manually declare groups for now. Colors doesn't read the prefix and suffix set with PEX, or any other permissions plugin.

    How to set a group prefix: /ca set prefix g: <groupname> <group_prefix>
  27. Offline


    I see thanks.

    Can't seem to find the command for group addition
    How do you add a player to a group?

    Lets say:
    My player is in group test (pex group)
    i do:
    /ca set prefix g: test &cqwerty

    Still doesnt display prefix.
    What do i do? :)

    Also i saw your code,
    does it have to be: "§"
    cant you just use: "§"
    So that when people see the <tab> list they dont see Â's before player names

    I really think this is a great plugin for colors. Its lightweight and very configurable.

    I'll go ahead and suggest this:
    I just noticed however, color LOCKS dont work if you don't have "chat-formatting" option set to true, or if u use another chat formatting plugin. Any ideas on fixing that?

    Also, why not make RAINBOW look like a real rainbow instead of just &1,2,3,4,5,6
    Try &4,c,6,e,a,2,b,9
  28. Offline


    That's odd... I have bPermissions, so I'll have to test this later.

    That should not be happening... I do, in fact just use "§"

    Why thank you :D

    Odd... Again, I'll have to test this... but I think I know what is going wrong...

    I'll probably add a configuration option for this :p
  29. Offline


    use essentialschat, that way you can customize the entire message, not just prefixes and/or suffixes

    edit: downside is that essentialschat does not support individual user prefixes/suffixes. also, this plugin is a lot more lightweight, especially if you just want colors
  30. Offline


    This plugin does allow you to do that...

    In the configs, change
    to true, and
    chat-formatting=<*prefix**displayname**suffix*&f> *message*
    chat-formatting=[*prefix**displayname**suffix*&f] *message*
