    Inactive. Being replaced by:
    DispNameChanger 3.o - Change anybody's display name!

    Version: 3.0
    DispNameChanger is a plugin that lets you easily change your display name or any other player's display name. I know there are other plugins that do this, but I think this is the only one (aside from /nick in essentials) that allows you to change YOUR name and ANYONE's name and permissions support. It now saves your name after you leave and loads it when you come back! *NEW* With Spout, this plugin also changes the name above the player's head and sends you a fancy notification!

    • Change the display name of a specified player, including yourself
    • Spout: If installed, changes player's names above heads
    • Permissions Support (Default is Permissions 2.7.x or 3.x) if not found, uses SuperPerms
    • PERSISTENCE! (Thanks to @Sammy for that one, he helped me a TON)
    • Supports Colors! (Thanks to @itsatacoshop247)
    • IMPORTANT: This plugin conflicts with Essentials, it doesn't work with this plugin. If you have essentials, you can just use /nick and change the nickname character to '' in the config, so it basically does the same thing :)
    Commands (open)
    Commands (open)

    The permissions default to the Permissions Plugin 2.7.x or 3.x
    If you don't have it installed it uses SuperPerms(PermissionsBukkit, bPermissions)
    • /rename <player> <new> - Changes the specified player to the specified name
    • /rename <player> - Resets the player's name
    • /rename - Reset's your own name
    • /checkname <player> - Checks the player's name (Not really working)

    The source code is included in the .jar (/me/captain/dnc/)

    If you knew anything about craftbukkit you would know that from 1000 to 1060 there were absolutely no changes regarding players and names.

    That's great it doesn't change what I said at all though. Don't get mad.

    I executed rename of version 3.0 (CB 1060) in the console and I got:

    I didn't looked in the source code, but not every CommandSender is a Player (only every Player is a CommandSender).

    I didn't look at this plugin specifically when I was checking for console usage, I just quickly looked over the code and made the changes that amazing community members made. I'll eventually get to it.

    Please made it compatible. Do you set the display name property of a user? I'm using Essentials too, but I want the Spout feature. If I rename somebody it doesn't changes the nick (afaik). I didn't test without Essentials yet, but I disabled nicknames there.

  8. Does this work with pex's (PermissionsEX) name system? Because whenever i try to use the name changer it says my name was changed but my chat name is still the same. I typed /rename <my username> <my desired name>

    I don't know anything about pex
  10. okay disabled chat manager and it works fine

    I installed it but I am not sure why the name above the head doesnt change. Do I just need to put spout in the plugin folder and open up the server? Or do I have to do something?

    You need Spout and SpoutCraft...

    But when I connect with SpoutCraft, I get an Internal exception: java.io.IOExceptopn: Bad packet id

    Could you possibly remove the super permissions? Because I'm sort of a noob when it comes to permissions and i can't get permissions working no matter how hard I try (Not to mention how many bloody hours i have spent researching on youtube). but I would very much appreciate it if you made a version that doesn't automatically Turn on super permissions when a permissions jar is not installed. I have a simple server for me and my friends and it would be good if we actually were able to change our names.

    Kind regards,
    Superch00b :D
  16. Could you add a 'new line' option ?

    Wow.... Thats what I get for posting on the first time on bukkit forums...
  19. Offline


    In fact, because it's a problem of Spout? If you don't use this plugin, it still won't work.

    Could you please set it so that if reverts to OP if no permissions plugin is found?
    Or at least set an option in a Config

    If you can't get a different plugin working on my server how does that concern me at all?

    PLEASE, Add support for heroicDeath, so when you die the plugin shows your changed name :3

    Great plugin! Thanks!
  24. Offline


    Heroic death will have to support this, not the other way around. They use player.getName() instead of player.getDiplayName(), not my fault.

    Quick question. If you look at the plugin mobchange, it changes the name above the players head without spout. any reason you cant do that here?
  26. Offline


    There is no public interface in (Craft)Bukkit to change the name above the players head. So mobchange is most likely modifying the behavior of CraftBukkit. This is more complex and could cause issues with other plugins/CraftBukkit.

    When will it be updated to 1.8?

    It works now...

    Doesn't appear to be changing the persons name above their head.
    Is this broken or am I not doing something correctly? - Sprout is installed and working fine.

    Edit: n/m - Didn't realize you have to had client-mod installed.
