    I will post momentarilly.

    /mchat afk (marks you as AFK, you dont receive any damage but also cant move) = mchat.afk
    /mchatwho *PLAYER* (VERY basic whois information on players. Currently shows formatted name, world, location in that world.) = mchat.who

                mchat.group.default: false
                mchat.group.user: true
                - default

    hmmm i searched now a while here and i checked each plugin i think it could make problems with chatnames. but nothing.

    my prefixes worked well, until i installed some new plugins. (annotate, commandsigns, vouchers, bigbrother, bukkitspeak, brokenfinger, mcmmo, iconomychestshop)
    mcmmo doesnt modify names, all other commands are passive or more iconomy related. i checked towny configuration and disabled name modification (but it worked next to towny so i dunno)

    the console gives me this "Could not pass event PLAYER_CHAT to mChat"
    error. But i dont get java error throws. i installed those plugins and it just stopped working and spammed me this message.

    i tryed to disable mchat > start server > stop server > enable mchat
    but now i dont have prefixes and it doesnt spams the could not pass message.

    im using mcmyadmin with latest craftbukkit and bukkitpermissions

    and this is the config file of mchat:
    mchat-date-format: HH:mm:ss
    mchat-name-format: +prefix+dname+suffix&e
    mchat-message-format: <+prefix+dname+suffix&f> +message

    how should i format my config to show this in-game: [Admin] RTRD ?

    using permissions 3

  7. Offline


    put it in the prefix Admin

    then on the config of the mChat

    put it

    mchat-name-format: '[+prefix] +dname&e'
    mchat-message-format: '[+prefix] +dname&e'
    mchat-playerEvent-format: '[+prefix] +dname&e'

    don't forget the apostrophe(')

    what about custom colors for each group? ;)
  9. Offline


    You can use the colour codes from HERE

    example usage:
    '&0[&6+prefix&0] &a+dname&0' would equal '[Admin] RTRD: Hello World'

    In MC it would default to white, so the next example will result in the black font being white.
    '[&6+prefix&f] &a+dname&f' would equal '[Admin] RTRD: Hello World'

    All you would need todo to make it so each group had a different colour is replace the &6 in the above examples with a colour of your choice :D

    Hope this helps
    RTRD likes this.

    Okay thanks, ill try it, the healthbar thing worked :3

    Hmm, this is what my config file looks like and it still doesn't work right. The names get all mixed up and weird when I use factions even though im not using tags, im just simply coloring peoples names:

    mchat-date-format: HH:mm:ss
    mchat-join-message: has joined the game.
    mchat-typingMessage: '*Typing*'
    auto-Changed: 1
    mchat-colouring: dark_red
    mchat-name-format: +p+dn+s&e
    mchat-playerEvent-format: +p+dn+s&e
    mchat-kick-message: has been kicked from the game.
    mchat-message-format: '+p+dn+s&f: +message'
    Admin: '&4'
    Mod: '&b'
    Member: '&f'
    Donator: '&2'
    admin: ''
    jadmin: ''
    member: ''
    sadmin: ''
    admin: ''
    jadmin: ''
    member: ''
    sadmin: ''
    mchat-contrib-enabled: true
    mchat-leave-message: has left the game.
    mchat-notifyHealth-enabled: false

  12. *cough* How can you inherince group default if the is NO default. You should create one even if it is not used, IIRC PermissionsBukkit does need it.
  13. Offline


    im using mcmyadmin so im wondering that i need to do this. because it says no inheritance. can i just leave the inheritance part blank on the default group?

    in the (i think it was permissionsbukkit thread) the developer said that the default group in the config.yml doesnt takes any effect for working. and mchat also worked without the default group for some reason.

    i will try it but would be cool if my questions got checked

    EDIT: tested default group with blank inherit -> nope
    tested with default group with inherit default group -> nope

    :-\ there are no realy good documentations about this permissionsbukkit :-( is someone has a link it would be awesome

    EDIT2: i found a better tutorial on a random website wich made something clear.

    i completely reset everything and tryed it out.
    then it worked good, and i added a group default in the mcmyadmin interface.
    it got broken. i removed this group, it worked again.

    so default group is not needed, it will more likely break your configs. and never edit a .yml config while using mcmyadmin XD (alt least in permissions config cases :-P)

    also mchat works now again, lets see for how long and how good.

    @MiracleM4n any chance you could make AFK work from "/afk" rather than "/mchat afk" or maybe setup as an alias.

    /afk is probably a more commonly known afk command, had to explain to a few people on my server that its /mchat afk now lawl. :)
  15. Offline


    i use aliases.. try bShortcut..
  16. Offline


    When i edit the config, and restart my server. It doesn't save the changed. And always reverts itself to the default. Please help. Shall I re-install or am I editing wrong?
  17. Offline


    short update its broken again but i think its more the permissionsbukkit stuff than mchat

    The best chatting plugin I've used hands down.

    Ok....Back from work now....18 hour day today. Has everyone resolved the issues? If not either PM me or reply to this messsage.
  20. Offline


    -hmm i don't know if it's gonna work but.. can u also add the UP function? like when u type a message and enter and u wanna type it again.. u just press UP Key?

    -one more suggestion.. can u also add just like the AFK that u see over your head, instead, we can configure it.. let say.. we want to stay our msg on top of our head but we can't move/can move.. let say "buying 25 apples for 1$ each" and it stays on top of our head until we remove it and temporary remove it when we're typing?

    and also PMChat doesn't work, when i tried PMing someone with space.. e.g. Hello there.. it will just show up hello..

    but if i try hellothere w/o space.. it will show hellothere

    EDIT: oh wait.. why did u removed the PM Feature?
  21. Offline


    morizuki: I am not yet able to do the UP function. When Spout (New BukkitContrib) comes out I will work on this. I am not quite getting what you mean by your second request. Try the most recent dev links and tell me if it works or not. I removed PM feature from mChat because it was making it extremely difficult to read and update the code. I instead made a seperate pluign for this that relies on mChat.
  22. Offline


    ok then.

    the 2nd one is like staying the message on top of our head, just like when ur AFK, the AFK will show up above ur head until u remove.. but instead of AFK, we can customized it like "selling 1 apple" or "

    i tried the PM plugin but, when we type two words like "hello there" it will only show up the "hello"..

    Have you tried the dev builds? (http://plugins.d3gn.net/dev/)

    perms = Permissions 2.x/3.x
    noPerms = Built-in Permissions

    ok then.. are there any command for PMing? like /pm or something?
  31. Offline


    Oook. A few things I'd like to ask/point out.

    You gotta remove the /mchat pm from the /mchat dialogue. Has the AFK been implemented yet? It's not defined in plugin.yml. I know I'm a pain, but is there any possibility of a custom /me format? Healthbars in chat are fine, but not in /me messages. Colored names are great, but healthbars no. lol
