    Hoping you have found your answer by now, but really not sure. Either way, here's some information.

    [ For the lazy ]
    This topic is at the top of the Plugin Development forum
    And this post is the 7th one down in that topic

    [ For the tl;dr ]
    If you're using Eclipse:
    1. Right click your project in the Package Explorer
    2. Select Build Path -> Configure Build Path
    3. Go to the Libraries tab
      • If you don't have Bukkit added here, add it
    4. Go to the Order and Export tab (top near the right side)
      1. Click on Bukkit (middle)
      2. Click Up (right side) until it's higher than CraftBukkit
    5. All done!
    If you're not using Eclipse, then Google how to do it in whatever IDE you use.

    chasechocolate,

    Do you know if there's a way to have each player appear with a different objective under their name? Such that Player A has the objective "Moderator" under his name, and Player B has the objective "Admin" under his name, and Player C can see both Player A and Player B correctly? I've been unable to do this with the standard API, but not sure if you have any idea on how to fake this data though packets.

    Would be really cool to make an API plugin that can do this easily, as server owners could have group names, titles, or any other text under their name. I'd take the leading 0 in front any day. :)

    Do you know how to separate SIDEBAR teams?, I would like to have titles like:

    PlayersA
    player1 5
    player2 8

    PlayersB
    player3 0
    player4 7

    So there are 2 teams clearly separated, I don't want them to be mixed.

    NemesisMate you could try making a score with no name (Bukkit.getOfflinePlayer("")). Since scoreboard scores get organized by score, you will need to find a way to have it be placed in between two other scores.

    chasechocolate Just that is what I can't find :S, a way to place it between the scores.

    Can't seem to figure out this problem. I want the scoreboards to be set and reset at some events. But when i'm setthing the manager and board outside any methods, i get NPE errors on this line: Scoreboard board = manager.getNewScoreboard();.
    how can i set the manager and board outside evertyhing so i can reach them from different methods?

    Won't show up. I copied the code and edited it to my liking, no errors, no problems but it still wont show up when I run my server. Is it a plugin.yml issue possibly?

    WhaleAnarchy You are probably using wrong getHealth(); or havent defined the actual player as a (Player)

    Yep, i do. My very basic code, that gives an NPE:
    Code:java
    1. ScoreboardManager manager = Bukkit.getScoreboardManager();
    2. Scoreboard board = manager.getNewScoreboard();
    3. Team team = board.registerNewTeam("teamname");
    4. Objective objective = board.registerNewObjective("test", "dummy");

    NPE on Scoreboard line

    mollekake make sure you are importing the Bukkit scoreboard class as opposed to the NMS scoreboard class.

    After 3 day's of hard thinking :)p) i dont have any solution for my problem:
    I wrote 2 plugin's: one of them counting points, and second make guild's.
    First plugin is showing points in scoreboard on the right side and now i want second plugin to show prefixes above players head (teams). And now i dont have a clue: How can i do that? If i'll set new scoreboard for player in second plugin, it will override first scoreboard. I tried to save in first plugin a scoreboard per player in metadata and than adding teams in other plugin but now i see its pointless becouse every player will have their own team (?!). So, is that possible to make individual scoreboard for player AND other scoreboard for teams? Sorry for my bad english, if you dont understand i'll try to explain it more clearly :D

    Yep got the right imports, had to declare the objects outside the onEnable, then declaring them in then onEnable:
    Code:java
    1. ScoreboardManager manager;
    2. Scoreboard board;

    Code:java
    1. manager = Bukkit.getScoreboardManager();
    2. board = manager.getNewScoreboard();

    Hey, trying to make a Kills scoreboard, I can't figure out how to display the scoreboard to one particular player... I even tried it once and whenever I got a kill, it showed up on everyone's board. Here's my code:
    Code:
    package me.Dead_Skeleton.kills;
     
    import org.bukkit.Bukkit;
    import org.bukkit.ChatColor;
    import org.bukkit.entity.Player;
    import org.bukkit.event.EventHandler;
    import org.bukkit.event.Listener;
    import org.bukkit.event.entity.PlayerDeathEvent;
    import org.bukkit.event.player.PlayerJoinEvent;
    import org.bukkit.plugin.java.JavaPlugin;
    import org.bukkit.scoreboard.DisplaySlot;
    import org.bukkit.scoreboard.Objective;
    import org.bukkit.scoreboard.Score;
    import org.bukkit.scoreboard.Scoreboard;
    import org.bukkit.scoreboard.ScoreboardManager;
     
    public class Kills extends JavaPlugin implements Listener {
     
        ScoreboardManager manager = Bukkit.getScoreboardManager();
        Scoreboard board = manager.getNewScoreboard();
        Objective objective  = board.registerNewObjective("Kills", "dummy");
        Score score = objective.getScore(Bukkit.getOfflinePlayer(ChatColor.RED + "Kills: "));
     
        public void onEnable() {
            Bukkit.getServer().getPluginManager().registerEvents(this, this);
            ScoreboardManager manager = Bukkit.getScoreboardManager();
            Scoreboard board = manager.getNewScoreboard();
            Objective objective  = board.registerNewObjective("Kills", "dummy");
            objective.setDisplaySlot(DisplaySlot.SIDEBAR);
            objective.setDisplayName(ChatColor.RED + "Kills");
            Score score = objective.getScore(Bukkit.getOfflinePlayer(ChatColor.RED + "Kills: "));
         
        }
        public void onDisable() {
         
        }
     
        @EventHandler
        public void onPlayerJoin(PlayerJoinEvent e) {
            Player p = e.getPlayer();
            p.setScoreboard(board);
        }
     
        @EventHandler
        public void onPlayerDeath(PlayerDeathEvent e) {
            if (e.getEntity() instanceof Player) {
                Player p = e.getEntity();
                if (p.getKiller() instanceof Player) {
                    Player killer = p.getKiller();
                    int killer_score = score.getScore();
                    score.setScore(killer_score + 1);
                }
            }
        }
    }
    
    That's my only class. Thanks for the help! (Btw, chasechocolate, I love your speed code videos! :D Thanks for the helpful post!)

    chasechocolate

    Create a Team variable, and in the onCommand() method, use team.addPlayer(player).

    Hello peps, I have this test code:
    Code:java
    1.  
    2. @EventHandler
    3. public void onPlayerJoin(PlayerJoinEvent e) {
    4. Player p = e.getPlayer();
    5. ScoreboardManager manager = Bukkit.getScoreboardManager();
    6. Scoreboard board = manager.getNewScoreboard();
    7. Objective objective = board.registerNewObjective("test", "dummy");
    8. objective.setDisplaySlot(DisplaySlot.SIDEBAR);
    9. objective.setDisplayName("§5§lStats");
    10. Score k = objective.getScore(Bukkit.getOfflinePlayer("§eKills§4:"));
    11. k.setScore(235);
    12. Score d = objective.getScore(Bukkit.getOfflinePlayer("§eDeaths§4:"));
    13. d.setScore(456);
    14. Score kdr = objective.getScore(Bukkit.getOfflinePlayer("§eKDR§4:"));
    15. kdr.setScore(235 / 456);
    16. p.setScoreboard(board);
    17. }
    18.  
    but whenever a player joins the scoreboard shows for 1 sec or so, do I need to make a repeating task to rest it every sec or what? I have no idea ... probably cuz I'm tired... :eek:

    I will give a Diamond to anyone who solve this xD [diamond]

    spoljo666 so it removes itself after 1 second? Perhaps another plugin is interfering?

    I think you have Health Bar installed.

    Does this problem occur without any plugins installed?
