    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/)

    What are you even talking about? I'm not adding this to PermissionsBukkit, use superperms or Permissions 2.7.x/3.x, it isn't my job to add support for every plugin that you want, I really don't care.

    I liked this plugin a lot better when having a permissions plugin wasn't mandatory. As it is now, with having to configure another plugin set just to make this one usable? Unfortunately, it's not worth the trouble. Kudos for the fun this plugin has given my server, but I'll wait for something more accessible.
  11. DispNameChanger isn't changing my name in chat =/

    Right, trying to fire up a server now. Exactly what permissions plugin would you recommend? I can't seem to find it anywhere..
  13. Offline


    I would go with bPermissions

    Ugh, sorry to be bothering you, but I've tried for about an hour to get this working, but can't. Each time I try the /rename command, "Unknown command. Type "help" for help.", pops up even though the admin group has '*' as a node, so it should be working right?

    Errors? Info?

    Ehm I would guess, that not the permissions plugin is the problem. Instead DispNameChanger one isn't running (for some reason). To help the developer you should look in your log and search for the error. Mostly on server start or command execution.

    Is it works without permissions?

    Rename doesnt work. I have spout installed, and the new name doesnt appear in chat nor above player's head.
  23. Offline


    Um am I doing something wrong here? Im a Op but when I try to change my name it says I dont have Permission?
  24. Offline


    I have spout installed, but it still only changes the name in chat. What's up with that?
  25. Offline


    You need to use SpoutCraft to SEE the changes ;) Spout (the plugin) only enables the support, that players using SpoutCraft could see the changes.

    Thanks xZise, but I'm using SpoutCraft. It still doesn't show changes. For some reason I also get an error when I change the name: "An internal error occurred while attempting to perform this command." What is that all about?

    Im using Bukkit 1185 and Permissions Ex and CommandBook. DispNameChanger only seems to work when using the say command.
  28. Offline


    Could you please post the error here to help the dev to locate the problem?

    1. Clarify that you need spoutcraft to see changes made by spout for displayed name

    2. /rename daemitus doctor_dae
    /checkname doctor
    error#1 in the pastie.

    3. In console, "rename daemitus dae"
    error #2 in the pastie

    Excellent otherwise, It was a surprising amount of work to find a setDisplayedName plugin even close to the 1000+ RBs

    edit: almost forgot. Add isOp() in your permissions checking.

    But there's not a command which one the player could change his name himself? How, for example, with permissions for groups "Members": /name [Name you want] and simply /nameback for back your really name.

    And, Does anyone know any plugin that allows to modify /me (color), as well as to add commands to complement the action? A brief example would be: "*Name press the power button on your computer * *[The computer turn on] *
    (Course, to make a Roleplay server in conditions, I would like to help me in this type of command, as well as I added with HeroChat a channel to talk OOC, although I would like a command like/b text that you want, and enough to speak for an OOC channel with the tag [OOC] name: )

    Sorry, my English is bad

    hmmm. When I type /rename <playername> <newname> it says "you do not have permission to change names"
    I'm not using any permissions plugins and usualy that means everyone can use commands, in this case, no one can!
