    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:

    /<colorsadmin> [set/get/remove/reset] [prefix/suffix] [p:/g:] <name> (<prefix/suffix>)

    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.

  9. do you mean mods like toomanyitems and modloader?
    if so then yes
    and my consol gets the colors

    Mods often screw up the colors, although those two shouldn't be causing any issues. Try and see if it works without mods (back up your .minecraft first)
  11. did not work

    The Plug-In works fine for my server, but you should add something so you can 'broadcast' a message to all players (like the /say command) but with all the colors you have in you're plug-in already! Also you should add a 'Bold' Style...

    Please Answer My question soon as possible T_T
    I want you to adjust that to type command on the console and remove the special character, " : ", on command.
    If you fix those both then I can use this one for my server wonderfully :D !!! Please fix and adjust what I want Thank You

    Its no problem its a great plugin
  21. Offline


    I can remove the ":" from the command, but it will take longer to be able to allow it from the console.

    Thanks for understanding :)
  22. Offline


    if so, please remove *:* , still it's necessary to have the console command input, it is our goal that give players quest reward 'suffix'. and will be great to have this problem solved in following update, thank you.

    Retarded thing about setting option to false is that it blocks command "/nick" which is used on our server a lot. Other than that it works fine.
  24. Offline


    If you don't want to disable that, is chat-formatting enabled in your config?
  25. Offline


    What config? The Colors plugin config? Then no because I need the essentials chat format I have right now. Only down side is that I can't use "/nick" if I disable "Change-displayname" .

    There are two chat modes, and they each handle the chat differently. "use-chat-formatting=true", and "use-chat-formatting=false".

    "use-chat-formatting=true" will take the chat message, and broadcast it to a different format.
    "use-chat-formatting=false" will ignore chat formatting rules, and change the displayname for prefixes/suffixes.

    For essentials compatibility, you can usually keep the change displayname feature enabled if you set "use-chat-formatting=true".

    No. Colors does not currently support factions, however it is on my todo list.

    Okay. Some bugs:
    • User can use, colored text without permissions. "&4text" in chat like "text"
    • I use PermissionEx (PEX), but if i set perm for group VIP: colors.prefix, and nothing for group Users, users also can use prefix and suffix.
