    Whenever a player joins, he gets a custom message in the chat.

    The first line will be this:


    &b ▁ ▂ ▃ ▄ ▅ ▆ ▇ ___________ &b


    Now, the ______ is a custom message from the config.

    Now, below this thing is lots of text. You can define all that in the config with supported linebreaks and color codes.

    Example Config:

    Title_Message: "&4Welcome to Servername!"
    Message: "Hello and welcome to &othis server&f.\nDo &4/help &rfor help blabla"

    Would this be broadcasted to the whole server or a message right to him?

    I am finished. Sorry.. But I did not know how to implement a line break so.. Thats the only thing not implemented. Also when using color codes do not use '&' symbol use this symbol: '§' There is a line in the config showing this :)

    Oh Now I actually know what he means :p

    timtower
    I am sorry for the trouble.. But, how might I go about sending a String to a player so such as creating a string in the config.yml so it would be like:
    title_message: 'message'
    messages:
    - 'message'
    - 'message'


    P.S. I am still pretty new to coding :p

    Code:java
    1. List<String> messages = this.getConfig().getStringList("messages");
    2. for(String message:messages){
    3. player.sendMessage(message);
    4. }

    That is all you need

    webbhead As i said in my post - you can not put utf-8 in configs. You have to code it inside the plugin.

    Noticed that yes.
    PotatoTears If you really want this then I suggest that you give webbhead a simple "thank you" first

    Remember, you also have to enable Unicode in the client.
    Options... -> Language... -> Force Unicode Font

    As far as I know, there is no way to force this, or even detect it, on the server side.
