    Show Spoiler

    The Config thats generated looks like this:​
            text: This is a demo text
                red: 1
                blue: 1
                green: 1
            posy: 100
            posx: 100
            size: 2
    text1 - text1 is the name of that text, 2 texts cant have the same name
    text - This is the text that will be displayed
    Color red, blue, green - This is the color of the tex, in RGB format, maximum number for the is 255, if you go past that the color will just be black
    posy - Y position of the text
    posx - X position of the text
    size - The size of the text, you cannot make decimals at the moment. You can in 1.2!
    like this: 1.13 is one size.
    Multiple texts:

    you can add more texts easily, just simply do like this:
            text: This is text 1
                red: 1
                blue: 1
                green: 1
            posy: 100
            posx: 100
            size: 2
            text: this is text 2, both of us will be displayed!
                red: 1
                blue: 1
                green: 1
            posy: 100
            posx: 100
            size: 2
    Just remember that 2 texts cant have the same name, then only one text will be displayed :)
    i have no idea what the maximum number is but i guess you could go over 1000's of texts if you want.

    introduced in 1.4 is images!
    Image formats: png or jpg only!
    Image height cant be bigger than 239! If it is, your image wont be displayed :(
    its very simple how to add them just add this to your config:
            url: http://forums.bukkit.org/data/avatars/l/3/3659.jpg?1316978098
            posx: 100
            posy: 10
    Heres a example with a text that wont be displayed:
            text: ignorethisword
                red: 100
                blue: 1
                green: 1
            posy: 150
            posx: 150
            size: 1.5
            url: http://forums.bukkit.org/data/avatars/l/3/3659.jpg?1316978098
            posx: 100
            posy: 10
    Very easy!

    Hey there; Sorry at the time of posting the error had just occured, and I really was hoping it was something on one of your guy's ends regarding an automatic update. This wasn't the case.

    For some reason; in all versions of towny that I've been able to locate/had on my HD:
    if I enable some settings, an example of one would be enabled town spawning (upon death). If this is set to true, certain spout features will not run as anticipated.

    Your plugin is one of the ones mentioned above. It does not appear, nor does U or /Smotd . Also other spout related features such as mmoTarget, and mmoParty are also disabled when this towny setting is changed. Aswell, the press P to continue looking around, or J to join screen does not appear also. When that mentioned setting is disabled once more, everything works as they should.

    I can live with having that feature disabled, but I am sure you wouldn't mind knowing that the conflict exists.
    Really appreciate the use of your plugin; and I do really hope you get some headway in regards to the multiple tabs. That would really be phenomal.

    Keep up the good work buddy,
  5. You should add simple color settings with &1 &2 &3 ...etc.

    Personally disagree with that.

    The ability to have many variations is great...
    Any information regarding when the tabs may be available? Cannot overrate how amazing those would be.

    Just got home from a short vecation, working on tabs now! not all tab features will be aviable at the start tough
    and i wont make simple colorcoding, its simple enough if you ask me, you want hex codes instead? :p
  8. I didn't said "change to" I said "add".
    I like choices you have with RGB, but sometimes I want to change MOTD fast and I easily remember classic minecraft color codes.

    Okay, Releasing 1.6 tomorrow, the changes will be:
    • Tabs/Pages: you have difeerent tabs/pages with different things on!(note that there is still many features to this tahts going to be adde)
    • Economy variables
    • Updated to latest RB
    • Updated to latest Spout RB
    • *maybe* color codes, just maybe.
    And yeah! (would be nice to have some bugtesters, PM me!)
    Im feeling for making a GUI editor, that will later convert it into a config file, or something like that. I dont realy know the performance of the config file yet, so i dont realy know how fast lets say 50 texts and some images will load on 20 players at the same time... might change the format when im doing a complete rewrite in 2.0
    Anyways, thanks for the feedback!

    now off to watch MLG soon :p
