  1. Does it also modifies the TAB list or only the floating text boxes above players?

    It is only for the name tag. Nothing else :)
  3. Does name tag mean the text box above the player?

    Just need to be clear about this. In PlayerDeathEvent I want to make the killer take the name of the victim, do I use TagAPI.refreshPlayer(killer, victim.getName);?

    No. The refresh method will cause events to fire as appropriate. You need to store internally what the player's name should be now, and when the event fires you can change it as appropriate.

    Every time a player moves it makes them glitch and twirl as the player steve and then turns their skin back to normal when they stay still. :/ Any help would be appreciated.

    Stop calling the refresh method on player move.

    Wow I'm a moron. I didn't realize I left the refresh there. Ok but now I am having another problem: when a player joins the server the second player that joins is seen as the color wanted but the first player is seen as regular having just a white name tag above his head instead of colored. I was wondering if you knew how to fix this. Any suggestions?

    you're handling the events wrong? Can't help with limited info.

    Oh sorry,
    This is what I have written for the event:
    public void onPlayerReceiveNameTagEvent(PlayerReceiveNameTagEvent event){
    Player player = event.getNamedPlayer();
    String playerTag = event.getNamedPlayer().getDisplayName();

    if(player instanceof Player){

    Any ideas on what I am doing wrong?

    You aren't setting the displayname earlier than the event fires.

    Hey! I'm a developer, and I am using nocheat for anti-hacking, and would it be possible if a player is suspected of hacking, the plugin makes there name tag black?

    Yes, it is most defiantly possible.
  17. Offline


    Would you happen to know how to do so? Would I have to use Nocheats code?
  18. Offline


    Yes, you would have to hook into the Nocheat API.

    Hello, I would like to edit a plugin I use (Simple Prefix) to support TagAPI and display the prefix in front of the username, above the players head.
    However, I have about no know knowledge in coding with java, so I was wondering if anybody could possibly help me? :)
