    Wellin


    It says here (like me) that 18:57:19 [SEVERE] Error occurred while enabling mChat v1.7.4_5 (Is it up to date
    ?): null. Apparently it isn't up to date? Also there's, an NPE... Try using the newer version that he put up.

    marvinbek: You dont have the group: node under mChat and it is trying to load this. (I will put a try/catch in)

    *Silent Update* (Fixed NPE for if your config is a bit off).

    uncovery

    Nice plugin, good to have something that works with 1000. I got this working fine. Now my questions:

    I have 2 groups, and a user can belong to both of them, for example "user" and "donator". These two groups do not inherit from each other. Is it possible to add an additional suffix to the users who are also donators?

    Also: what is the "group:" setting in the config.yml for?

    thanks!

    Can you make the superperm permission nodes compatible with the yetis permissions 3.x? IT's a lot cleaner than the info: prefix suffix junk. Would be greatly apprecieated

    The plugin defaults to Perm3/2 if PermissionsBukkit is not enabled.

    Would it be possible to get another format option with timestamps?

    I use permissions 3.1.6, but I use bukkits Permission.yml, I don't use the info: in permissions, I have the prefix nodes set in the permissions.yml, but It does not seem to work, I would much rather use the permission node then making my code untidy.

    @bocaj812: Could you throw up your mChat config.yml I can help you with what to add to permission.yml.
    @uncovery: Not exactly sure what you are asking. If a player is in more than one group and you want the player to show something from both, You can set the group: variable and give the player mchat.group.ETC that matches to the Donator rank (+group, +g) and add a suffix, prefix for the other group (+s, +suffix/+p, +prefix).

    Every other permission works, so I'm pretty confident in the setup. but Mchat isnt matching my permission nodes with my prefixes

    EDIT: WEll upon further testing, I discovered that I forgot to deop myself, and upon doing so, and demoting myself, I have discovered that my permissions set up does not work ...

    @bocaj812: Take a look at PermissionsBukkit. It is the official permissions plugin and the one that I officially support. (It can be used with Permissions 3).

    Having annoying issues getting this to work...
    If the user is in the default group or the Moderator group, it gives the user the Admin prefix. The group and suffix work fine, and the Member and Admin groups both work as expected.

    It's probably something stupid I missed, but I can't see it :/
    Thanks for any help :)

    Edit: Never mind, restarting the server seems to have fixed it.

    Looking for input on a few things. I am currently cleaning up all the coding of this plugin to make it work nicer and not throw so many NPE's all the time. Would everyone like me to remove the /mchannel feature and make a plugin dedicated to this only in the near future? Would you also like me to make an API for this plugin so that other plugins can tie into it? What extra (chat related) features would you like included in this plugin (BukkitContrib feature requests are always welcome)? Please respond on here, on #bukkit on IRC, PM me here, or email me @ miraclem4n@gmail.com. I want this plugin to be as useful as possible and also be as easy to understand. I would also like to know if everyone wants me to remove P2/3 support as it is no longer supported by Bukkit and/or the Permissions 3/2 Dev's.

    I could take or leave the channels.
    I would like to see the "text above head whilst typing" color be changable
    Keep permissions 3/2
    I think it would be cool to have like a spam block - because most chat plugins seem to be glitchy with spam blockers, but if it's tide into it, that would be cool. (toggle true/false)
    custom join/leave messages?
    &colors in text. ex: hey - it's quite the &9blue&f day today.
    seperate log for chat? maybe log commands too with a seperate log? that would be bad ass
    have it log for how every long you want it to - basically have your server.log - then in /plugins/mChat/logs/chat.log|commands.log it would show up to how ever many days and/or size of file (which ever is easiest (or don't have a delete date(inception :)3)))))

    i'll let you know if i come up with more. I understand you want to keep it minimal, but i gave you my 2 cents :)

    How do we go about configuring display names?

    What do you mean by display names? This does not change your actual display name it just formats what you type in chat & join/leave messages.

    Hey @MiracleM4n I love our plugin compared to iChat, the only thing I regret is the heath bar that was in iChat, anyway for you to add it to the chatbar and even possible to the display above the user?

    possible to remove/opt out of most features and just use the contrib stuff? also, anyway the name=title could be optional? we have ranks in our titles so it would be redundant and probably quite ugly

    Either I misunderstood, or it's redundant...

    Are +name and +dname both the same thing?

    MiracleM4n

    +name is the name you logged in with +dname is the name that other plugins use/modify.
    @dark_hunter: I will try to implement this.
    @40540057: I can make contrib features optional if you want me to.

    So the chat Looks like: [20:13] [Admin]Lathanael: hi

    @Lethanael: in the config try this mchat-date-format: 'HH:mm' and for example do mchat-message-format: '[+time][+group]+name: +msg'

    Ok would anyone like a slightly different healthbar or would you like the exact one that iChat uses?

    Maybe a little diffident. Is it possible to use the notification to say when xxx is low on heath? I have some many idea you could try.
