    @KUJO_ What version of mChat are you using if its anything but 1.7.11 please update and to remove those lines remove any +hb or +h from the config.

    ^ exactly what I needed, thank you sir.

    I was just wondering (or suggesting) if you were working on individual player settings.
    This would be useful if one User/VIP/Mod/Admin was more 'special' than others but had no permissions group difference. Is this something you've ever thought of?
    Thanks for your time.
    And btw, this plugin is AWESOME! ;)

    I thought I saw it my first time downloading the plugin.. Then I went through and looked again when I actually needed it and I swear I could not find it -.-'

    Ty :D

    I'm using the latest version. Anyway, it done the trick. Thanks for the help :)

    I have the same, I figured out it shows your connection to the server but I don't want it to see :/
    I tried deleting al of the +h and +hb in the config file like MiracleM4n said but it wont help...
    My config code:
    # mChat configuration file
    #           **IMPORTANT**
    #   usage of mchat-message-format is restricted to:
    #       +suffix,+s, +prefix,+p, +group,+g, +world,+w, +time,+t, +name,+n, +dname,+dn, +health,+h +healthbar,+hb, +message,+msg,+m
    #   usage of mchat-name-format, mchat-playerEvent-format are restricted to:
    #       +suffix,+s, +prefix,+p, +group,+g, +world,+w, +time,+t, +name,+n, +dname,+dn, +health,+h +healthbar,+hb
    #           **************
    mchat-date-format: HH:mm:ss
    mchat-name-format: +prefix+name+suffix
    mchat-message-format: '&e[+world]+prefix+name:&f +message'
    auto-Changed: 1
    mchat-playerEvent-format: +group+prefix
    mchat-join-message: has joined the game.
    mchat-leave-message: has left the game.
    mchat-kick-message: has been kicked from the game.
    mchat-API-only: false
  8. It is not the connection it is your current Health ;)

    Your config seems fine, you could try to surround the messages with SingleQuotes (') like in the config spoiler in the OP, but i doubt that it is the error. I assume you did reload/restart the server to test it.

    Sorry if this has been answered before, but does this show when players are typing in the chat? Like, will a box appear above their head when typing?

    *Updated* (Added +reason, +r for kick message to show reason, This is untested as I am really tired.)

  12. Honestly i do not have any idea atm, you already got most things:
    • channels
    • naming format
    • custom messages
    • colouring chat
    • /msg and /me
    But if i find anything i need and ít is not included i'll let you know it!

  13. ^^ please answer this :)

    could you pls explain all options from your info.yml ?
    what is groupnames and how do i set up the worldnames?
    when i enter this in the info.yml
    world: '&7[W]'
    raktos: '&8[R]'
    and write +w in the mchat-massage-format the whole worldname is displayed instead of the shortcut
  15. +w takes the name of the world the way you created it and bukkit does refer to it.
  16. Offline


    and how do i display what i use unter worldnames?
  17. Offline


    +W +G are used for world and group aliases respectively.

    Having this same issue too. Saw this response:
    Any luck fixing? Can't remove spout because it's required for logblock chest logging... Will have to use a different chat plugin which is too bad, i like how your config is setup.

    Also, adding SuperPermsBridge to my server stops the +group tag from working in the config. Startup sequence, before and after adding SPB, only lines that include mchat:
        Line 4178: 2011-09-02 20:32:04 [INFO] [mChat] Permissions not found, Checking for GroupManager.
        Line 4179: 2011-09-02 20:32:04 [INFO] [mChat] GroupManager not found, Checking for PermissionsBukkit.
        Line 4180: 2011-09-02 20:32:04 [INFO] [mChat] PermissionsBukkit 1.2 found hooking in.
        Line 4181: 2011-09-02 20:32:04 [INFO] [mChat] mChat version is enabled!
    ^before spb
        Line 6758: 2011-09-02 20:42:59 [INFO] [mChat] Permissions not found, Checking for GroupManager.
        Line 6759: 2011-09-02 20:42:59 [INFO] [mChat] mChat version is enabled!
    ^after spb
    If im reading it right, it's thinking i've got GroupManager? Is it possible to have it check PermissionsBukkit first, instead of third?

    I'm not sure if anyone's noticed yet, but you wrote "Him/ his" in the credits. :p
    (I'm too lazy to read through all 24 pages to see if anyone wrote that already.)

    Oh, and a friend recommended this to me, downloading now, doubt it will be dissapointing. ^^

    I really like the healthbar, but it makes chats in my server.log quite painful to read (like this):
    2011-09-03 03:58:05 [INFO] |||||||||| SomeGuy Yesh
    Is there a way to remove the healthbar from logged messages or maybe event completely log chat into a different file?
  22. Offline


    @p3king Atm there is no way to fix that besides moving the server to linux. This happens because of unicode/colour characters not being supported in Windows OS's.

    Also Spout bug is fixed with 1.7.11 +.

    Is there a permission that only allows a specific group to use colours in chat? If not, interesting feature?

    I might be stupid for asking, but after reading through the first post a couple if times. I'm still unable to add a prefix to the people of the "Regulars" (McMyAdmin).

    I've successfully managed to set the color for the "Administrator" group. But not he rest. I've made sure they have the correct "mchat.prefix.#GROUP#" in the permissions file. (PermissionsBukkit)

    Here are my config files: https://gist.github.com/1193026

    Any help would be greatly helpful! Thank you.
