    Permissions 3.0
    Rcjrrcjr has been working quite hard on this upgrade to Permissions. However, it currently still suffers from a number of bugs. The most important of these which directly affects HeroChat is the non-functioning of prefixes and suffixes. There are less-than-pretty workarounds, but I'm refraining from fully supporting an update until Permissions 3.1 is released which should include a number of significant bug fixes. When this does occur, however, I have a build ready for you guys that should work. You can download it here. Again, I highly suggest not using this until Permissions 3.1 is released unless you really don't care about prefixes and such.

    See you when I get back!

    Is your config resetting when you make changes?
    If you make changes to the config while the server is running, you need to use the /ch reload command to make the changes stick. I wish this message wasn't necessary, but people only seem to read things in big, bold, red text (if at all).

    Have a problem? a feature request? Go here.
    HeroChat now has its very own redmine found here. If you have an issue or would like to suggest a new feature, I urge you to file it via redmine. I will be checking this much more often than this thread from here on out.

    Show your thanks! Maintaining plugins like HeroChat is very nearly a full time job. If you enjoy my plugins and appreciate the support I provide, then please consider providing some support of your own. Donating even a tiny amount keeps me motivated and makes me feel loved so go ahead and donate!

    hey ya!
    before hero chat i used "iChat" plugin. and when i was using "/who" command, in the player list all nicknames was colored (with his groups' color). now, im using HeroChat, and when i use "/who" all players' nicknames are white (except op's, they are red). is it possible to make nicknames colored?

    /who isn't a part of HeroChat. The command you're using is probably a part of Essentials or some other "general" plugin.

    I deleted the channel with help, turns out there was one. Unfortunately however the problem is still persisting whenever the command /help is executed this UI shows.... Command: Quick Message
    description: Sends a message without changing focus
    usage: /qm <channel> <msg> OR /<channel> <msg>

    Post the first few seconds of your server log after start-up and your HeroChat config.

    I am running into the same issues with having the name of the group show up in the suffix in HeroChat. I don't have a screenshot currently, but if you can visualize it, it looks like this (the color codes obviously aren't there, just so you have an idea of what I'm talking about): [&fMember] &fMemberelitestryker: <message>

    I'm getting no errors in the logs, so it's something having to do with configuration I think. I've tried having '&f' in both the Prefix and Suffix and the problem persisted. I'm running HeroChat 4.7.6, Permissions 2.5.5, and Craftbukkit 556.

    Here are my configs:



    P.S. I'll try to get a screenshot when I get the chance.

    Could I get a full list of plugins you're running? A screenshot of your plugins folder would be lovely.

    Interesting.. no essentials chat. If you disable HeroChat, do players still have prefixes of any kind?

    Re-installing HeroChat fixed it, but now I can't change the config file without breaking it. All I did was changed GREEN to AQUA and then it broke. Anything I change breaks it.

    I was wondering if it is possible to auto change focus to a channel/and leaving when entering or exiting a world since I would like to have a seperate channel for each world.

    I was just about to set this up and try it out until I noticed users.yml. You need to make it a users folder with a yml for each person and only load them when needed. Loading a yml of every person that has ever been on is plain silly and would be the death of my server as I have almost 1000 unique people a week visiting.

    AQUA isn't a valid color: see the list of available colors in the setup wiki. If other things break it, I'll need the full error to debug as mentioned before.

    This isn't planned, but if you read back a page to my discussion with uncovery, you'll see my proposed alternative.

    I'll consider adding an option for this behavior, but for what it's worth, we run this on a very populated server with no issues - I seriously doubt it would impair your server in any way. The decision comes down to a trade-off between memory and speed, although the contribution towards either is minimal.

    @Malchus, could you confirm that there is no channel with 'help' as a nick or name in your in-game /ch list? I realize your config basically answers this question for me, but the only way this should be possible at all is by having a channel with that name. If you're positive nothing has that name, I'll have to contact you privately to dig a little deeper.

    I switched back to iChat and it all works...sorry I had to abandon such an awesome plugin...just wasn't cutting it. :'(

    so just to clarify, can is set a chat range of lets say like after 60 blocks people cannot see what you are saying?

    What do you mean a trade off? Each user having its own yml would be faster loading AND use less memory.

    inefficient: parse a file with a list of every user that has ever been on the server at startup and keep it all in memory.
    efficient: do nothing at startup and as people talk load only their info. This way there is no wasted CPU or RAM.

    It may not impair my server but that doesn't mean its simply a waste of resources to keep everyone in one file. Essentials used to do this too and it actually did lead to very slow startups when the file had 5000 people in it.

    The trade-off exists in having everything in memory to begin with (faster, more memory) versus performing I/O on every login/logout (slower, less memory). Like I said, I'll consider adding an option to change the behavior.

    Yes, that's what local channels do.

    Whenever I change any of the settings in the config.yml and save it, restart my server and test it, it just reverts back to what it was. Why is this happening.

    Out of curiousity, is there any way to do something along the lines of '/tell (player) {message}' to just send a one time private tell to the person instead of entering into a locked conversation?
    Like basically saying:

    /tell Bob Hello

    Instead of:

    /tell Bob

    Overall it would be nicer for the quick random private message, but also, I'm using McMyAdmin, and it does the motd as a /tell (player) {message} so no one can see the motd.... plus there's been a few different server commands that I cannot actually see the response from because the server seems to echo some private commands as a /tell (player) {message} also.

    If you make changes to the config while the server is running, you need to do a /ch reload either from the console or in-game to apply the changes.

    I've been meaning to add the one time messages to /tell, I just haven't gotten around to it yet.

    Can you explain this more? I don't understand what you mean. The way plugins send messages to users has nothing to do with /tell.

    *thinks* Let's see... the server wrapper (mcmyadmin) seems to use '/tell (player) {message}' when someone logs in for the motd... so they see nothing, and I get on the actual server log:
    [INFO] Command: Tell
    [INFO] Description: Starts or ends a private conversation
    [INFO] Usage: /ch tell <player> OR /tell <player>

    I know, just the same as /tell help, but wanted to let you know that that goes to the server log, but doesn't output anything on the client in that situation.

    The few other commands that I've noticed that also do that when I try to use them in game....
    /whitelist list

    I know there were others, I just truthfully cannot remember what right now. Essentially it seems like the server is still able to issue GLOBAL messages to all, but it can no longer echo personal/private messages to only one person.

    Post a server log from start-up until this happens.

    That's better, but is there any more? Still missing the heart of the problem.

    I really don't know, all i did was drop herochat.jar in my plugins folder, and that's what i got. I'm guessing that's because it's missing something. Like the config file, but you get that by running herochat, right? I'll check again for things i missed.

    Try to post more of the log surrounding the error. What version of CraftBukkit are you running?

    Minor update.
