    @MiracleM4n Hm, I'm on Bukkit 1000 and have version 1.7.5_1 of mChat (downloaded today) and still get severe errors after doing a reload whenever somebody types into the chat. That is very sad because I really like your plugin because of it's cool features but I can not use it because of having to reload our server very often. I hope you can fix this issue soon! ;)

    Okay, one more thing: Is it possible to add a place holder for newlines? So one could use e.g. "\n" to make a newline? Because I would like to have the chat like that:

    13:37:42 <Admin Kiwi>
    Here goes the Message
    It's simply because it is hard to read if you have a time stamp, a rank name, possible a world name and the user's display name in one line with the actual message.

    Kiwii: Im not sure how this will work as I am just formatting the message than sending it to Bukkit to send it to the players, Console. I will ask around if this is even possible.

    Is there any way to view more than just the chat channel you're in? I wanted to set up an Admin only channel, but apparently joining that channel blocks whatever other users are saying in the "public" channel. :I

    IncendiaDrakon: I have removed channels as of 1.7.5. I will be making a seperate channel only plugin that will tie into this ones API once all the features I would like in mChat are complete.

    Wooow ! It's a litle more long for me ! :p
    @MiracleM4n Your plugin is just PERFECT !!
    No realy, It just what I need ! Particulary the message above the head who said then we are chat !
    Congratulation and continue !! :D
  16. Offline


    @MiracleM4n Do you need some new ideas/bug reports? :p
    At first, the bug: in login and logout messages color codes of prefixes do not work properly.
    Relevant configuration: (btw, what exactly does the 'group:' thing?)
    mchat-join-message: '&8joined the game.'
    mchat-kick-message: '&8has been kicked.'
            Guest: '&8Guest &e'
            Member: '&b'
            Moderator: '&8Mod &9'
            Operator: '&8Op &2'
            Admin: '&8Admin &4'
            Guest: Guest
            Member: Member
            Moderator: Mod
            Operator: Op
            Admin: Admin
            member: ''
            sadmin: ''
            jadmin: ''
            admin: ''
    mchat-leave-message: '&8left the game.'
    In the chat, the names are properly colored but in login and logout messages the names are just white but the rank name is displayed so I think this is just some weird bug.
    Now, the feature request: Would you mind making a /who (/online) command that sorts players by prefixes? And then a new configurable option for that to give the player names in the /who list different colors, like that:

            Guest: '&e'
            Member: '&b'
            Moderator: '&9'
            Operator: '&2'
            Admin: '&4'
    So you have an online list with colored names, sorted by ranks.
    Again, thank you very much for this plugin!

    Kiwii: I will need the whole config to help with the login/logout bug, I will also try to add this command for 1.7.8.
    dark_hunter: Almost done PM :p 1.7.7 here we come. (Thanks for the photo's)

    dark_hunter: 1.7.7 released. Enjoy!! (Ill be in the server to test in a second).

    Is it possible to change the format of the PM ?
    Like : "&4[MP ==> +sendername] &1+PM" ?
    ( My "&4[MP ==> +sendername] &1+PM" is quickly ! :p)

    And for the *Typing* above the head too ? ( yes i'm not english, and i want to change that ! :'( )
    Please !
    And if you're not OK, thank's !

    @MiracleM4n Okay, sorry here is the complete config file:

    # mChat configuration file
    #           **IMPORTANT**
    #   usage of mchat-message-format is restricted to:
    #       +suffix,+s, +prefix,+p, +group,+g, +world,+w, +time,+t, +name,+n, +dname,+dn, +health,+h +healthbar,+hb, +message,+msg,+m
    #   usage of mchat-name-format is restricted to:
    #       +suffix,+s, +prefix,+p, +group,+g, +world,+w, +time,+t, +name,+n, +dname,+dn, +health,+h +healthbar,+hb
    #           **************
    # Use of mchat: is only if your using PermissionsBukkit (superperms)
    # ignore it if you don't know what that is.
    mchat-join-message: '&8joined the game.'
    mchat-date-format: HH:mm:ss
    auto-Changed: 1
    mchat-name-format: '&8+p&f+dn&8+s&f'
    mchat-kick-message: '&8has been kicked.'
    mchat-message-format: '&8+time <+p+dn+s&8>&f +message'
    mchat-colouring: dark_red
            Guest: '&8Guest &e'
            Member: '&b'
            Moderator: '&8Mod &9'
            Operator: '&8Op &2'
            Admin: '&8Admin &4'
            Guest: Guest
            Member: Member
            Moderator: Mod
            Operator: Op
            Admin: Admin
            member: ''
            sadmin: ''
            jadmin: ''
            admin: ''
    mchat-leave-message: '&8left the game.'
    mchat-contrib-enabled: true
    mchat-notifyHealth-enabled: false
    By the way, I do not have Bukkit Contrib on my server... I guess I should turn 'mchat-contrib-enabled' to false but it does not seem to make any problems.
    Do you need any other config files? Everything including chat is working fine except the color codes in the prefix in login and logout events.
  21. Offline


    mchat-name-format: '&8+p&f+dn&8+s&f' <-- That is used for login and logout as well as BukkitContrib features.

    I will make *Typing* configurable in next release. Also I might MIGHT add a feature for changing PM format.

    thanks for the great "this is how u instal it" ! :-(

    Well, you download the mChat.jar and move it to your "plugins" folder inside of the folder containing your "craftbukkit-0.0.1-SNAPSHOT.jar" (if there is no folder named "plugins" just create it!). After you start your server once the plugin should auto create it's default configuration in /your-server-path/plugins/mChat/config.yml. Stop your server and edit that file to fit your needs. Make sure to only use spaces; no tabs!
    I hope that helped.

    Could you tell me if Mchat is much better ?

    Anymore feature requests, Bug reports, Feature malfunctions?

    Would anyone like me to split this plugin up into multiple ones? Like one for PM one for Channels(In the future) and one for Contrib features?
