    Heres an odd one... I am using CB 1597 (RB), and v. 1.5a. Am getting no errors, and everything working fine in console. Messages are coming out in console just fine. I have a dedicated server (separate from my desktop). I am Admin and Op on my server.

    Here's the deal. In my game window, I do NOT get any of the automessages when the server puts them out. Another Admin, who is Op'ed as well, same as me, (exact same permissions and rank) told me tonite that he was getting the messages just fine on his computer. Other players report they see messages just fine.

    Here is the kicker... I just got done watching it on my computer... two MC client windows open... One with my user online, the other with one of my kids user online. Same computer, two windows... his showed the automessages, mine still DID NOT! Now his user is just a Member, not Admin, not Op. But can't see this makes a difference as stated above, those didn't weem to matter either.

    Any ideas???

    We have used AutoMessage in the past with no issues, and we love the program. We just took it down after MC 1.8, and didn't get around to putting it back in until now.
  7. That's a pretty strange problem you're getting there, from what you say all I can assume is that it's some sort of client issue since other users who are also OP's and/or Admins can receive the messages just fine. The only thing which would prevent such a thing is that if your account is somehow set to appear offline while connected to the server e.g. hiding your presence, as the plugin uses the available online player list to send messages this could prevent you and you alone from getting the messages. Other than than I don't see any other possible cause. If you find out more about the issue just send me a message and I'll investigate further.

    invisible mode ?
    or maybe a user group that is not listen to the messages ?
    sry dont know, works fine for me

    Well its not a big deal, i can see they work in the console... But yeah, its odd! As far as client issue, no. Because I logged out and restarted using my kids account. Worked fine then. Same client. And as far as permissions, a couple others have Admin permissions in PEX all the same as I do, and it works for them. The only thing I can think of that is different, and never seemed to affected it before when I used it in Beta, is that I am only one actually listed in the admin.txt folder of the main directory. It (the plugin) wasn't turned off for some reason for those in that admin.txt folder in order to avoid the extra messages in game window, was it?

    Odd.... oh well...

    Have fun out there!!

    I am new to craftbukkit forums, so if there is anything wrong in this message please let me know.. jsut like asking something while not producing anything ^^

    I would like to know if you could implement a function that would stop the broadcast of messages while there are no players connected, not because indeed it would be "useless" during this time, as there is no one to read them, but because it fullfils quick my server.log file and the simple command box/pail log box, thus making it harding to filter and look for what I need. Otherwise, for the log, maybe is there some way to filter what's written in it and what is not, or simply I could delete all the lines with "[Auto]". But that would not help for the command box/pail log.

    Before posting this, I tried to search this thread with keywords like "connected" or "online", but everytime there has been a error message. So I am sorry in advance his this subjet has already pointed out, I did not feel like reading all the 14 pages of message and though a simple "look there everything explained" would not be to harassing to answer : /

    Also, sry for possible bad english, foreign language..!


    Edit: also, thanks for the plugin..! very appreciated

    Is there anny way to add an /nomsg or something. Cause my users get sick of hearing the same messages all over and over again. So it would be really nice, if a player could dissable the message for him/her self so they don't hear them. If there is another plugin for this, please tell me :)

    i love this plugin but if i might make 2 suggestions. Please please recode the file saving such that it saves in an automessage folder, i hate that its in the main folder with my jars. Secondly can you plase redo the command to reload it, i really dislike it that a simply mistaken space in it will cause a server reload, would much rather have "msg reload"

    The next recommended build is for Minecraft 1.2, R5, and I and everyone who uses this plugin will greatly appreciate it if you can get a head start on the plugin so it's update to support the new revision when Minecraft 1.2 is officially released along with Bukkit R5.

    Is there a way that I can set it to automatically transmit a console command? For example if I wanted it to have the console "save-all" every few hours. Thank you for the help.
