    Great plugin. Im wondering if there is anyway to exempt certain groups from getting these messages? I only want them to goto certain groups but not all. Any help would be great. Thanks :)

    Is there anyway to change "$" to "&"?
  8. Not currently, the next release will feature a escape character combination to allow the use of $ and & in all messages.
  9. Offline


    anyway to set permissions nodes so you can set the groups to receive the broadcast?
  10. Not in the current release, permissions may be added to the next release of the plugin.

  12. Hi, It appears that you have a malformed config file, try redownloading the plugin and editing the config file once again with a better text editor such as Notepad++.
  13. Offline


    Don't worry I using Notepad ++ for a while.
    I figure it out by myself by just putting a space after "prefix=" I unfortunately deleted it.

    Also thanks for your replies and for this awesome plugin.

    Colour codes do work but you need to use "$" insted of "&"

    (letters like "$f" may not work)

    it does but you have to put a $ instead of &

    Hey when I try to type /reloadmsg in game, or in the console, I get an internal error. Here's what the server log has to say:

    I got it working. How do you make it where it doesn't have a prefix before the message?
  18. Offline


    still working in bukit 1000

    just erase the suffix line.
    # time - Set the time between messages in Seconds
    # prefix - The text in the tag before an Auto Message (Now Supports Colour Codes) Remove the tag for No Message Prefix
    # random - Choose if the message list should be shown in order or shuffled (true or false)
    # Message List
    # -----------------------------------------------------
    # All Messages Should Start With msg=

    and so on.....

    Ok thanks!

    @RedFalKon would you consider spout support and use the achievement boxes to send the auto-messages to players?
  21. I've been looking into Spout as a possible option to allow server-admins to add/remove/organise messages on their servers, changing how they're broadcast may be something I'll look into as well.

    Thanks for your Suggestion !

    I run on bukkit 1000, but automessage does not work:

    [SEVERE] Error occurred while enabling AutoMessage v1.5 (Is it up to date?): 1

    How about a command for individual users to prevent these messages from being sent to them.
  25. This is planned for the next release of the plugin.

    Try using a new .properties file from the zip, you appear to have a error in the configuration file, if you've set the plugin prefix to nothing or deleted it, re-add it and just put a space as the value, this will be fixed in the next release.

    how do you use a $ symbol in this
    I want to say like for $5 you can get bla bla it will just turn colors, wont it?
  28. Yes, currently $ is reserved for colour code use, this has been changed for the next release, the only way to use the $ symbol is if it is followed by a space.

    Lol this is beautiful. My members will never forget to vote again >:]

    Neither will Mine!

    Tip for the plugin though:
    Can you add permissions support?
    Eg. to receive the messages, you would need the AutoMessage.receiver node :D.
    And other perm nodes, so it's not just OP

    Maybe permissions like:

    - AutoMessage.nodename

    and in the config file
    Message: "message here "
    Node: nodename

    and the message is sent to only people with the node.

    edit: Then you can have different broadcasts for different groups.

    e.g. Donators don't receive the "Donate to help our server!" message
