    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!'

    Are you using 1.7.0 and miss the latest permissions?
  4. Offline


    I'm always up to date on Craftbukkit and I'm using the latest scheduled announcer..
  5. Offline


    and are you using latest bukkit permissions too? Otherwise it will not work, as you can read in first post.
  6. Offline

    Thanks miho and fizz. That will solve my problem. For permissions, I am currently using groupmanager/essentialspermissions. But miho, you said that we should be using the new internal permissions? Your plugin doesn't work on my server anymore, I assume because it is using the new internal permissions, which I haven't setup. Can you link me to a guide on the new permissions system?

    Thanks :) Is there a way to redirect the plugin to my current setup?
  14. Offline


    Unfortunately, not. But it would be possible and I hope the developers of Permissions 3 and GroupManager will provide support for the bukkit permissions interface soon, so no change would be needed for most people. (Only plugin developers to change their plugins, but on a well designed plugin, this is a job of 5 minutes or less.)

    MiHo, did you consider my and fffizzz's feature request (send different messages to different user groups) or shall we look somewhere else?
  16. Offline


    There will be such a feature sometime, but this will take some time until I get time for that...
  17. even bukkit say you should still have perms aswell as bukitperms, can u atleast make 1.6.3_01 for announce now for perms 3.1.6

    I cant use any commands. I get this when I use any "Invalid arguments! Use '/announce help' to get a list of valid commands." but after I use /announce help I only get this "=== ScheduledAnnouncer [Version 1.7.0] ===" but no commands
    Aina likes this.

    Missing version number in title, and also you're not allowed to use open ended RB numbers ("+") as you cannot guarentee this.
  21. Offline


    Changed title

    Please read the first post carefully! Version 1.7.0 only supports the new bukkit superperms! Not Permissions 3.X, 2.X or GroupManager. (Use the 1.6.3 if you want to use them)

    Could you possibly add a setting to prevent the scheduled announce broadcasting when no players are on?
  23. Offline


    Why? What's the usage?
  24. Offline


    It just seams a good idea to add I mean its not like its using much but it would be nice to keep things otimized
  25. Offline


    What are the colors that are supported by this? Not sure what they are, have continuously test each color. It would help if you could have a spoiler of all the colors. Thanks!

    Hello MiHo
    is there a way to add an function to announce a message at an defined time like 1:00:00 ?
  28. Offline


    No sorry, currently not possible.
  29. Offline


    I cannot use ANY in-game commands. I do not know if it another plugin overlapping or what, but anytime I use /announce it comes up with use /announce help, so I do.

    When I use that I get 'Scheduled Announcer [Version 1.7.0]

    Any other ingame command errors with: Invalid arguments! Use /announce help to get a list of valid commands!

    Help please?
  30. Offline


    Enter /announce help, if you do not get any commands, you miss permissions. Are you sure you read the bold, red line in first post?

    Man, I have used this plugin for over a month now. I am OP on my server with the * permission node. I am not stupid.

    I have run my server for a looong time and I know when I am doing something wrong, versus a plugin doing something wrong. Thanks for trying to attack me :3
