    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)

    Permissions nodes:
    • colors.hex
      • This is the node that allows people to use (or not use) the "&" or "^" character (or a different one, depending on your configuration) followed by a hexadecimal code.
    • colors.rainbow
      • This is the node that allows people to use (or not use) rainbow mode. (Use with care - can create an eyesore)
    • colors.admin
      • This is the node that allows people to use the admin commands. (Setting/resetting prefixes and suffixes) Use with care.
    • colors.prefix
      • This node allows users to change their own prefix.

    Can you post your colors.properties?

    Check the Original Post. I added a dev build that hopefully fixes the problem.

    I haven't tested this build extensively, so if you find any bugs, don't hesitate to let me know.

    Here is is:

    That is odd. I'll contact the Factions dev in the next day or so.

    The download link seems to no longer be working for either version. May I recommend simply hosting the .jar file on Github instead?

    Also, is this going to be moved over to BukkitDev?

  6. Offline


    Seems to be working fine for me, I'll put it as a wget-friendly link later.

    As for bukkitDev, this project exists on bukkitdev, but I never check it.
    I find it VERY annoying not to have integrated alerts.

    It's workin' now, at the time of my post it seemed to be having some downtime though. Oh well!

    By the way, do you have any issues with the dev build?
  9. Offline


    I didn't encounter any issues... well, except for one, but it might have been a human error on my part. For some reason when I tried to do '/ca set prefix p: Wolfy9247 &4' it put it in the groups file instead. I might have just put g: instead of p:, but that's about the only error that occured.

    I was also going to ask what the reload command is? I tried doing /ca reload and that didn't seem to work.

    2.0.1 is now promoted as stable. I recommend you download this as it contains a few bugfixes.

    2.0.2 is in development, expect bPermissions and permissionsEx support within the next few days.

    how to get a rainbow name? and love this plugin
  13. Offline


    Just set their prefix to &r (or whatever color-char you have set in the config)

    /ca set prefix p: <player> &r

    or, if you are <player>,
    /prefix &r

    Thanks for the compliment :)

    2.0.2 is going to be r5 ready!

    I have the code done, I just need to test it first. Expect a release later today.

    Important information on Next Recommended Build

    Hi LetCraft,

    We're cleaning up our code to help us better prepare for the release of Minecraft 1.2. As a result, a lot of old, inefficient and buggy code is being removed and plugins will need to be updated.

    Please check your plugins, find out if the plugin developers have been keeping everything up to date and kindly let them know that they need to update their plugins to make sure they will be ready for R5.
    Well, that's what bukkit told me. Please update this plugin, really love it and use it. And it doesn't work right now because it have to be updated.

    I am aware of this.
    The Dev. build is of Colors is compatable with the new API.

    BTW, what Permissions plugin are you using?

    Will it be working on PermissionsEx later? :/
  24. Offline


    If you have PermissionsEx, I need your help testing the dev build (it's perfectly stable, just hasn't been tested with PermissionsEx in-game).

    I have programmed in permissionsEx support, but I haven't tested it yet.

    So give it to me :) I can test it on my server, but 2.0.0 wasn't working normal :]
  26. Offline


    If you look up in the OP, there is a "Dev Build:" with a link under it.

    That is what you want to download.

    Thanks for the reply. It seems to be working for bPermissions too, so I will promote it to stable.
