    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!'

    Nope, please read exactly the first post. Version 1.7.0 ONLY support the newest bukkit permissions system. Not the old GroupManager or Permission 2.X, 3.X. (And in permission bukkit system does not exists a * permissions node, so I believe you miss unterstand the red line and use Permission 3.X, so please read the line again and I say that not because I want to attack you!)

    I switched over to that to see if it worked. I got the same exact thing... I believe something may be interfering with the plugin though. Just a little while ago I got an error from a different plugin, routed to SA. Looking more into that atm though...

    (I would however suggest adding support for permissions as well as bukkitperm, just because a lot of plugins/people still use that)

    version 1.6.3 is completly the same like 1.7.0 but without bukkit permissions.
  5. Offline


    Yeah I already went back to that :p

    And its working fine now. Dunno if it was something with bukkitperms or what, but I will continue using good old fashioned permissions. Just like almost every other plugin -.-

    Maybe a stupid question but can it be used with 1060? And if not when will it get updated for it =)?
  7. Offline

    Are you using the bukkit internal permissions system? (The permissions system which is new since RB1000, not the Permissions plugin 2.X or 3.X) Since version 1.7.0 only the bukkit internal permissions system is supported, if you want to stay on GroupManager or Permission 2.X/3.X you have to stay on version 1.6.3 of the plugin too. (But currently this does not care, 1.7 does not have new features which are not available in 1.6.3, except the support for bukkit internal permissions)

    Well i dont use any form of permission system, and i would really REALLY like this plugin to work again, so all i have todo is to instal v 1.6.3 of the plugin then instead?

    Where can i download this version? ANDDD.... Please make the new versions support the old gruop thing system :)?

    Suggestion: add support for a manual broadcast.
    Usage example: admin want to announce a message that contains vital information for the moment alone.
    /announce say <message>
    permission node announcer.broadcast

    Hello MiHo. I tried to add at least 20 messages and the plugin broke. Is there a message limit?
  14. Offline


    Doesn't work with permissions plugin. Downloaded bukkit 1060 and version 1.7.0 of this.
    He doesn't do some commands and doesn't work ingame.

    I have noticed that when I edit the Config file, the jar file will not load... Do you know the reason for this? I will post the error if you don't know what I mean. Thanks! -Jake

    Love the plugin but with the command use. I want to have a lol broadcast that kicks my friend from the game when it happens. I understand useing &n for commands but how does the plugin know when to stop using the command. Can you put text after a command or does the command have to come last?

    I have no config.xml showing on my files, and not having the /announce help showing me the options i have, it only show the version and not options.
  24. Offline


    i have installed the plugin but it does not give me the config file?
  25. Offline


    It's because:
    ... you are using an outdated Permissions plugin. Permissions 3.X, 2.X and GroupManager are not supported in version 1.7.0 since they are outdated.
    Please switch to PermissionsEx, PermissionsBukkit, bPermissions or any update permissions system.[/quote]

    when i downloaded the plugin the .yml is blank. can i copy the code in?
  27. Offline


    do you downloaded the full zip?
    YDu can copy the code into too, but it should be included in the ZIP file anyway.
  28. Offline


    Where can I find a download for 1.6.3?
  29. Offline


    when i put the coding in it crashes the server... also when i type /announce help it doesnt say any commands

    I can't think it's because of ScheduledAnnouncer. The plugin is in use on a variety of servers since multiple months without such a problem.

    Would permissions have something to do with it?
