    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/)

    Can you add an option so that it doesn't broadcast changed names?
  15. Offline


    It doesn't broadcast it, it just sends you a message..

    can you fix the space thing again or at least give me the 1.4 download cuz for the godmode plugin it does the same thing as the one with jobs someone had problems with before.

    Never mind, we're getting this error with similar plug-ins as well. My apologies for posting in the wrong thread.

    all users in my server who are using the BukkitContrib client mod randomly get a dirt screen and the following terminal output if DispNameChanger is enabled:
    java.lang.StringIndexOutOfBoundsException: String index out of range: -1[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgb(192, 192, 192)]	at java.lang.String.substring(String.java:1949)[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgb(192, 192, 192)]	at java.lang.String.substring(String.java:1916)[/COLOR]

    [COLOR=rgb(192, 192, 192)]	at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:636)

    It seems to happen more often while typing a chat message, and happens asynchronously to random users. We are using colored and changed names in our server. The Bukkit version is 953, DispNameChanger is 2.0 and BukkitContrib is alpha 0.1.1, although the problem has been present since we started using it.
    I don't know if BukkitContrib itself causes it, but I highly doubt it as no one has gotten the problem when I disabled DispNameChanger.[/CODE][/COLOR]

    I used the source and made my own custom fork of the plugin. It may be useful to some of you.
    Typing /rename with only one argument now defaults to changing your own name.

    So you can type /rename Foobar and your nick would be changed to Foobar.
    To change other people's display names, /rename LOGINNAME DISPLAYNAME still works just as before.

    The permission nodes are different for this. For changing anyone's name, give the permission dispname.change.anyone; but if you want the user to just be able to change their own name and not anyone else on the server, give them the permission dispname.change.self.


    Thanks CaptainAwesome7 for the plugin!

    This isnt working for me, it says that it has changed my name on the screen but it stays the same, what am I doing wrong, also I am just using OP, do I NEED permissions to use this?

    What chat plugin are you using?
  22. Offline


    What do you mean? Like something that edits chat with colours or your whole chat system?
  23. Offline


    Either one
  24. Offline


    Well I haven't changed the whole system in any way but I have quite alot of chat related plugins like ColorMe, Prefixer, FakeMessage, Regex Filter, IPGet, LoginMessage, EasyRules, DeathMessage and Colour's. But the whole system itself is just default.
  25. Offline


    I would guess it's Prefixer or ColorMe

    What that I would have to remove to get your plugin to work?

    I don't know, I don't use those plugins. It works fine for me.

    I can't get this to work atm (#953) - no errors in console and it says name changed but does not show in chat messages

    my plugins are:
    AutoSave.jar BigBrother.jar CommandBook.jar DispNameChanger.jar LCCombat.jar LCExcavation.jar LCMining.jar LCWoodCutting.jar LevelCraft.jar MyWarp.jar Seasons.jar WorldEdit.jar iAuction.jar mcbans.jar BedRespawn.jar BorderGuard.jar CraftIRC.jar HeroChat.jar LCDexterity.jar LCExplosives.jar LCScavenger.jar LWC.jar Minequery.jar Permissions.jar Towny.jar WorldGuard.jar iConomy.jar npcx.jar

    To fix this - in towny change modify_chat_names to false

    NM Figured out my issue.

    Make sure iChat is set to the display name, not player name.
    BukkitContrib is recommended.
    Other than that, I don't know. Works perfectly for me on 953.
