    All Downloads:​

    Beta 2.0.3b4 needs more extensive testing. It works fine on bPermissions/bPermissions nano
    Description: (open)

    Allows users to color their chat by using a configurable character (By default, the ampersand "&" and the carat "^") followed by a hexadecimal number (0-F). I recieved a request to post this plugin after someone used it on my server.

    Rainbow mode is toggled by a configurable command (by default "/colors" and "/colours"). This can be disabled in the settings.

    Admin can use the admin command (by default "/ca") to set and reset players' and groups' prefixes/suffixes. If you don't have permissions installed, the admin command will default to Op, and the two groups that will exist are: "Op" and "Default"

    Users can change their own prefixes and suffixes using configurable commands (by default "/prefix" and "/suffix").

    A small note about version numbers: x.y.z
    • X.Y represents the Minecraft version number that was out when the update was released.
    • The Z represents the release number.
    So the version 1.7.2 would indicate that it is the second release of the plugin, on minecraft 1.7

    Starting with version 2.0.0,
    The version number is unrelated to the minecraft version. It goes by major.minor.release
    Any questions, comments, suggestions, or plugin breaks (I'm not always on the latest version of CB), please post here.
    Example: (open)

    Hello &9there.
    results in:
    Hello there.

    /colors Hello there.
    results in:

    The Admin Command: (open)

    /<colorsadmin> [set/get/remove/reset] [prefix/suffix] [p:/g:] <name> (<prefix/suffix>)

    Command breakdown:
    • [Set/get/remove/reset]
      • Required
      • Remove and reset are alises
      • Remove and reset removes the prefix/suffix
      • Set sets a prefix/suffix
      • Get tells the admin what the current prefix/suffix is
    • [prefix/suffix]
      • Required
      • Self explanatory
    • [p:/g:]
      • Required
      • p: tells the plugin you are setting the player's prefix/suffix
      • g: tells the plugin you are setting the group's prefix/suffix
    • <name>
      • Required
      • Fill it in with either the group, or player name, depending on what you put for [p:/g:]
    • (<prefix/suffix>)
      • Required in certain contexts
      • Only use if you are setting a username [set]
      • Just type in the prefix/suffix you want to set here.
    To color a name, just set a prefix with the last 2 characters be the hex code for the color (using the character set in the properties file).

    /ca set prefix p: tyzoid &cAdmin &a
    When tyzoid (me) talks, it will look like this:
    <Admin Tyzoid> Hello.
    Permissions nodes: (open)

    • colors.rainbow

    This plugin is designed to work with other plugins such as http://dev.bukkit.org/server-mods/dispnamechanger/ if you enable chat formatting.

    Great plugin.... except that I have one problem. People on my server could see my colored prefix, but I cant. So I know its not my config's problem. I'm pretty sure its my texture pack.By any chance, do you have any advice?

    Hey man, I only have WorldEdit and Colours on my server right now, but it still doesn't work. The colours only work in my console, not the game. Could this be a JS error or something, or just my own stupidity?

    What do you type in, and what do you get out? (screenshot please)

    It appears to be a client-side problem. If you don't have any mods, try force-reloading Minecraft.

    When it starts up, click "options" then click "Force Update!" Log into Minecraft as usual, and it will re-download it.

    Can you add some sort of "only-color" option? I already have a plugin to format my prefixes and suffixes but this plugin seems to want to overwrite it. When I turn chat formatting off, I can no longer use the color codes in my chat at all. :(

    Sure. I can do that.

    Hello, I have a problem with permissions. I am using essentials group manager and your permissions wont work.
    I added colors.hex and colors.rainbow for my donator rank, but it seems that everyone can use both color codes and rainbow chat. Is it just me or this is a bug?

    Kevin Forte

    It didn't seem to work for me, I set chat-formatting to false and only-colors to true and was trying "&a green" and "&c red" and the likes but had no luck. I have all of the proper permissions (as an admin and op)

    It goes on a deny basis.

    You deny the permission to the groups you don't to have it.

    With GM, place a minus ("-") sign before colors.hex, colors.prefix, colors.suffix, and colors.rainbow to disallow those permissions to the groups you want.


    so, you are saying that the colors themselves aren't working?
    Can you post a screenshot of this occurring?

    Can you please do an example cause I am confused right now, all GM permissions has "-" like: - colors.hex and so on.
  27. Offline


    so, to negate a permission, you would
    - -colors.hex

    By the way, if I want to change my prefix in game I type /prefix ThePrefix , but would it be possible to make it work with both GM and HeroChat? So you can change your prefix even with those plugins enabled?

    Why would you use herochat?
