    Beta 2.0.3b4 needs more extensive testing. It works fine on bPermissions/bPermissions nano
    Description: (open)

    Allows users to color their chat by using a configurable character (By default, the ampersand "&" and the carat "^") followed by a hexadecimal number (0-F). I recieved a request to post this plugin after someone used it on my server.

    Rainbow mode is toggled by a configurable command (by default "/colors" and "/colours"). This can be disabled in the settings.

    Admin can use the admin command (by default "/ca") to set and reset players' and groups' prefixes/suffixes. If you don't have permissions installed, the admin command will default to Op, and the two groups that will exist are: "Op" and "Default"

    Users can change their own prefixes and suffixes using configurable commands (by default "/prefix" and "/suffix").

    A small note about version numbers: x.y.z
    • X.Y represents the Minecraft version number that was out when the update was released.
    • The Z represents the release number.
    So the version 1.7.2 would indicate that it is the second release of the plugin, on minecraft 1.7

    Starting with version 2.0.0,
    The version number is unrelated to the minecraft version. It goes by major.minor.release
    Any questions, comments, suggestions, or plugin breaks (I'm not always on the latest version of CB), please post here.
    Example: (open)

    Hello &9there.
    results in:
    Hello there.

    /colors Hello there.
    results in:

    The Admin Command: (open)

    /<colorsadmin> [set/get/remove/reset] [prefix/suffix] [p:/g:] <name> (<prefix/suffix>)

    Command breakdown:
    • [Set/get/remove/reset]
      • Required
      • Remove and reset are alises
      • Remove and reset removes the prefix/suffix
      • Set sets a prefix/suffix
      • Get tells the admin what the current prefix/suffix is
    • [prefix/suffix]
      • Required
      • Self explanatory
    • [p:/g:]
      • Required
      • p: tells the plugin you are setting the player's prefix/suffix
      • g: tells the plugin you are setting the group's prefix/suffix
    • <name>
      • Required
      • Fill it in with either the group, or player name, depending on what you put for [p:/g:]
    • (<prefix/suffix>)
      • Required in certain contexts
      • Only use if you are setting a username [set]
      • Just type in the prefix/suffix you want to set here.
    To color a name, just set a prefix with the last 2 characters be the hex code for the color (using the character set in the properties file).

    /ca set prefix p: tyzoid &cAdmin &a
    When tyzoid (me) talks, it will look like this:
    <Admin Tyzoid> Hello.
    Permissions nodes: (open)

    • colors.rainbow

    I have the same problem. Any suggestions how to fix this?

    dude are you going to update this to 1.3.2 or did you do it already?[pig]

    This is a result of the new(ish) chat feature in bukkit, which is multi-threaded chat. This allows chat messages to still go through even if worldedit/tnt is going on.

    Unfortunately, due to how bukkit is set up, no permissions checks work, and many bukkit features are unavailable when handling chat messages in the new thread. This plugin uses the old, single threaded method, while some newer plugins (which don't need permissions checks/get around them using other means) use the multi-threaded chat. Hence, two chat messages (one from the main thread, and one from the new thread).

    If this is confusing, don't worry, I have a fix in mind, however it isn't an easy one, and I haven't found much time recently to code, and as such (as you have probably noticed) I haven't been very active recently.

    It should work with 1.3.2, (as it is working fine on my server)

    If you have an issue, please let me know.

    My above post explains the problem:
    This means you have another chat plugin interfering with what colors is doing.
    If you have essentials, you can try and disable the chat functions.

    In the meantime, I do have plans for updating colors, but I often cannot find the time as I am usually buried in work.

    Did you download 2.0.3 beta 2?
  14. Offline


    It's thanksgiving break and I'm finally getting around to updating the plugin.
    Features coded:
    • Support for a vast number of permissions systems by default (without vault)
    • Vault support (if you are using a permissions system that colors doesn't support by default)
    Features partially coded:
    • Prefixes/suffixes from other plugins (i.e. permissions plugins)
    • Support for Async Chat
    Features still to code:
    • Tags (personal and group)
    Edit: And obviously, I need to test this as well. If anyone wants to get an early beta, let me know and I'll get one out for you to help me test.

    how do i remove my prefix?
  16. Offline


    just type /prefix
    It will clear any user prefix you may have.

    Is there a way to set a group's prefix via permissions nodes? For example, if I wanted to set the prefix "Admin" for the admin group in my permissions.
  19. Offline


    Unfortunately, not. I'm going to work on a rewrite when I have time, but not currently. Sorry.
  20. Offline


    Is the current build (2.0.2) or the beta (2.0.3b2) compatible with bPermissions? I've been messing with it and have some prefixes set in the bPermissions settings, but nothing is showing up? Sorry if this question is extremely "Noobish" haha
  21. Offline


    Yes, and in fact, I have another beta build I am going to release.

    Download beta 2.0.3b4.

    I still can't get it to work for some reason, I filed a ticket for it.

    Thanks. Looking back at the code, I had only half implemented it. Hopefully I can finish that up soon, but I'm also trying to do a code refactor, as I wrote the base of the plugin over two years ago when I was fourteen and still learning. (Hint: it's terribly, terribly written and hard to maintain).

    Does that apply to the GroupManager permission method too?

    Hi all! Sorry for the lack of activity here. I haven't pushed out any updates in a while because the plugin still works on current versions of bukkit.

    Due to the recent changes in the bukkit/craftbukkit project, this plugin may not work after the 1.7 update. In light of this situation, I have resumed active development of the project to attempt to get a working chat plugin out when bukkit has an update available.

    Some features include:
    • Metrics tracking
    • Better support for other permissions plugins (and built-in prefixes)
    • Vault support
    • Improved handling of multithreaded chat. (may not be ready in time for the update)
    • Reliability/Speed fixes
    • and many other improvements I'm forgetting off the top of my head.

    This is one of the plugins I've been looking for. Thanks

    Also the updated features look really great, great plugin you've developed here.

    Only the alpha version can. I'll pm you with it, but be forewarned: I haven't tested it with pex.
  31. Offline


    Will you build in support for PermissionsBukkit? (or just add default support using vault?)

    And it seems this plugin blocks the [player issued server command: <command>] in the console window, any fix for that?

    I also noticed that commands don't work from the console
