    ScheduledAnnouncer [Version 1.8.1]

    Scheduled Announcer is a very simple tool, which only does what's its name told us. It automatically sends a broadcast out of a list controlled by a schedule.


    • Sends Scheduled Broadcast to all Players
    • Easy to configure by 'config.yml' or ingame with the '/announce' command.
    • Supports colors (&1, &2... &9, &a, &b... &f) and newlines with &n.
    • Supports executing commands inside Announcements. (Like "Now it will get day!&n/time day")
    • Supports newest Bukkit permissions system!

    How To Setup (open)

    1. Download the latest Release
    2. Drag&Drop the JAR file to your 'plugin/' directory
    3. Restart or reload your server

    There's a video tutorial on how to setup and configure that plugin on YouTube too. Thanks to BrandonHopkins!

    Configuration (open)
    # ScheduledAnnouncer Configuration File
    # =====================================
    # Don't use tabs in *.yml file!
        # Use this flag to temporary disable the announcements.
        # enabled: false, means that there wouldn't be any announcements.
        enabled: true
        # Set this to true will announce in random order.
        # 'false' will announce in sequential (one after another) order.
        random: false
        # Defines the prefix for the announcement. Use & + hex char 
        # for color codes.
        prefix: '&c[Announcement] '
        # The time of one interval in seconds.
        interval: 100
        # List of messages to announce. You could use color codes by
        # using & + hex chars too. &n will produce a new line.
        - 'This is the first default announcement!'
        - 'Use /announce help to get info how to config this plugin.'
        - 'You can also configure this plugin with its config.yml too!'

    ^^ Strange thing is it worked on 1.8.1 with 1337 with that setup. But as soon as we updated to 1.0.0 and dev builds of bukkit (we're nwo on 1550 or something) the permission-announce function broke. :/
    There are no errors in the server.log. Not sure what it could be, do you get the same problem if you try with PEX and 1.0.0?

    Great plugin! But I have a suggestion :)

    It would be nice if you made tips wrap nicely, ex:

    "Hello there, this is a tip" would wrap like
    Hello there,
    this is a tip
    instead of
    Hello there, thi
    s is a tip

    The interval is not right, please look into it.
    I can set the interval to "5oo" and the messegaes apears every 5 minute.
    I can set the interval to "120" and the messages apears every minute.

    I think something is wrong with the scheduler.
    Using Craftbukkit 1597 & ScheduledAnnouncer 1.7.

    Thank you for the plugin, just a quick question, is there any way to announce more than one message but at certain different times?:confused: I know it can do this, but I do not know how to set this up. Any help? Thanks in advance.

    You should add MultiWorld Support to make this plugin even better!

    When I use the default config it works fine, but with this code, it throws out errors. Any ideas?

    You should use \\ instead of \ (not "tinyurl.com\abc" => "tinyurl.com\\abc")

    Aww, i thought you updated it, not just change the title. Well yeah it works but not all features work. Like the tag colors are glitchy. And maybe add new features?
  15. Offline


    Ah alright It wouldn't work when I copy and pasted so I re-wrote it line for line, and it worked. Without the //, but I will change that.
    I was also messing around with the default example on this first post about using ingame commands. I was thinking i could use it to /save-all.
    I tried "Now it will get day!&n/time day"
    Now it will get day!&n/time day
    and &n/time day
    without any luck.

    Please exactly reread my last post, I never told you to replace /. You have to replace the \ in the url!

    Right, I accidentally wrote / instead of \.
    Either way I was done with that issue. What about:

    I tried "Now it will get day!&n/time day"
    Now it will get day!&n/time day

    // doesn't work for me. any backslash either single or double crashes the plugin when it tries to load the config file.

    Ah, there seems to be a problem with changes in latest bukkit build. Download ScheduledAnnouncer 1.7.1 to fix your problem.

  26. Offline


    Does this work with PermissionsEx anymore?
  27. Offline


    Do you have set 'sendToAll' to true (default) or otherwise you need to have the 'announcer.receiver' permission.

    It works with PermissionsEx, like any other SuperPerms plugin.

    12:19:14 [SEVERE] Config file plugins/ScheduledAnnouncer/config.yml isn't valid! unacceptable character '?' (0xFFFD) special characters are not allowed
    in "<string>", position 0
    12:19:14 [INFO] Configuration reloaded.
    Hi, I took the default config and tried to translate it into UTF-8... Here is the problem, it doesn't work.
    I'm admin of a french server, and messages without é, à, ê... Is a bit unreadable and ugly ^^

    Can you help me ? I don't understand how to fix it.
  29. Offline


    Did you tried to add these special characters in game? The plugin should handle the characters then correct.
  30. Offline


    Hum, weird, but it works better now ^^
    The config file has changed, and now he replace special characters to "?".
    The file is still in ANSI, hope that it doesn't affect the announcements.

    thanks for the help

    Edit : Because the file is encoded (is it english ?) in ANSI, the special characters are replaced by ?, even in the announcements. If I encode the config file in UTF-8, it send me an error message (same as above)
