    MessageChanger - Change the server's default messages
    Version: v1.01
    CraftBukkit Build: 953


    This simple plugin allows you to change the server's default messages to whatever you want.

    • Change the server's default messages
    • Use different messages for different worlds, groups and users
    Download MessageChanger v1.01
    Source Code

    MessageChanger 1.00+ works side-by-side with Permissions 3. That means, that you'll have to add some keys to your permissions files.

    Example (groups.yml):
            default: true
                prefix: ''
                suffix: ''
                build: false
                    KICK_KICK_REASON: '&4Pwned by admin'
                    KICK_FULL: '&eThe server is full, sorry.'
    Easy as that. Just add a new node called "messageChanger" as a child of the "info" node of either a group or a player. Then add the following keys as childs of the new node:
    Key			+ You get the message if ...
    KICK_FULL		+ The server is full.
    KICK_WHITELIST		+ you're not white-listed.
    KICK_KICK_LEAVEMSG	+ you get kicked (everybody can see this in the chat).
    KICK_KICK_REASON	+ you get kicked.
    PLAYER_JOIN		+ you join the server (everybody can see this in the chat).
    PLAYER_QUIT		+ you leave the server (everybody can see this in the chat).
    KICK_BANNED		+ you're banned from the server.
    SERVER_STOP		+ the server is shutting down (use '' or '%msg' for the usual error message).
    If you need help, feel free to ask :)

    %pName - the player's name
    %msg - the original message

    If you want to use colors, use the color codes &0 - &f (click me).

    • Add support for multiple colors - Done!
    • Different messages per group - Done!
    • Stop sending an error to the clients when stopping the server (send a custom message instead) - Done and fixed!
    • Add more wildcards (request some :) )
    Version 1.01
    • Fixed an NPE
    Version 1.00
    • MessageChanger is now working side-by-side with Permissions 3
      • You have to reconfigure the plugin, read the "Configuration" part above!

    are you using MY version or the one from the OP?

    if you are using MY version please go to or to the dev.bukkit site and post there..

    if you use the version from the OP I think it is broken with the latest releases..

    btw.. IIRC there was a plugin for that.. for an older version of "minecraft"..

    Sooo you won't get that in this version? It would be nice if you did, I like to have the smallest amount of plugins possible.
    Oh and I have another thing I would hope you could implement: It would be really cool if the joining message could use the display name (nickname), not sure if that is possible, but I use a alias plugin called dispnamechanger and it would be really useful for me :)

    Is it possible to use [Mod] %msg, this worked before 1.8. '
    It was working with PEX, but now only the "server stop" message shows. Not the player groups. (CB1318)

    Aw that's sad, oh well not the most important thing.
    And about using this other message changer, I am sorry, but I won't be using that. The main reason for having the custom messages is to easily see higher ranks joining. For this I need support for groups.
    I will keep this version of message changer until I find a message changer that supports groups or when I have to use another permission system than Permissions 3. I will keep an eye on your plugin at dev, but I am afraid I can't send any tickets when I am not using the plugin.

    Great Plugin FrozenBrain :), But Could you please add an option to change the Saving Msgs like

    Saving world data. Expect lag for a short while.
    CONSOLE: Forcing save..
    Save Complete
    If you could add that it would be awesome :)

    Thanks Dean.

    no he can't because this plugin is inactive since ages, my plugin which is the successor is still active atm but I can't either or better said I probably can't. I don't think that there is a normal way to intercept that message.

    Does this plugin have AutoMessages that broadcast randomly in intervals? IF not that is a suggestion!

    To me, it looks like it configs the chat's leave/join/kick messages, I use CustomJoinMessages plugin that does that, I am scared that these plugins will interfere w/ each other. Maybe if I leave the join/kick/leave messages to "" (blank) it works. Can you also add a option so when your kicked cause the server is full, be able to change it?
