    Inactive. Being replaced by:
    DispNameChanger 3.o - Change anybody's display name!

    Version: 3.0
    DispNameChanger is a plugin that lets you easily change your display name or any other player's display name. I know there are other plugins that do this, but I think this is the only one (aside from /nick in essentials) that allows you to change YOUR name and ANYONE's name and permissions support. It now saves your name after you leave and loads it when you come back! *NEW* With Spout, this plugin also changes the name above the player's head and sends you a fancy notification!

    • Change the display name of a specified player, including yourself
    • Spout: If installed, changes player's names above heads
    • Permissions Support (Default is Permissions 2.7.x or 3.x) if not found, uses SuperPerms
    • PERSISTENCE! (Thanks to @Sammy for that one, he helped me a TON)
    • Supports Colors! (Thanks to @itsatacoshop247)
    • IMPORTANT: This plugin conflicts with Essentials, it doesn't work with this plugin. If you have essentials, you can just use /nick and change the nickname character to '' in the config, so it basically does the same thing :)
    Commands (open)
    Commands (open)

    The permissions default to the Permissions Plugin 2.7.x or 3.x
    If you don't have it installed it uses SuperPerms(PermissionsBukkit, bPermissions)
    • /rename <player> <new> - Changes the specified player to the specified name
    • /rename <player> - Resets the player's name
    • /rename - Reset's your own name
    • /checkname <player> - Checks the player's name (Not really working)

    The source code is included in the .jar (/me/captain/dnc/)

    can I add a feature request?
    Was looking for a plugin which sets a players name to "[AFK] Name" when they are AFK for some time.
    Now there are plugins for AFK, and there are plugins for name changes. But not both together.

    Would you be able to add this as a feature.
    Or at least could tell me if it would be difficult to implement?

    I think this Would be pretty hard to implement, but essentials can do that with its /afk and /nick. You might as well use that because I can't even get colors to work :(

    The problem is, i don't think you can make a player's display name this:
    player.setDisplayName(ChatColor.GREEN + n)
    where n is the player's new name. Obviously that isn't for all colors but I think that you can't make a name with ChatColor and I don't know how else you would do it.
    When I try to replac & with § I get "invalid character constant" no matter what encoding I use :(

    also just bee trying it, when i disconnect server and reload, my name goes back to default any chance to make perm??

    player.setDisplayName(n.replaceAll("(&([a-f0-9]))", "\u00A7$2"));
    Users can then use the color codes when deciding the name. I think works, but im not 100% sure. Add it, and try setting the name to "&eBob".

    wow thank You so much! :)
    re-uploading new version colors work! @itsatacoshop247 (even though that code is probably common thanks for bringing it to my attention)
    If you don't have any chat plugin, and you rename captainawesome7 to &4derp, when chatting it will look like this:
    <derp> hello!
    You can type /rename captainawesome7 &4Derp&f for regular color after chat

    Does this interfere with other plugins?

    Example: I set permissions for group
    - node x
    - node a-d

    I rename "X" and would that mess up the permission's?

    Just curious.

    ? Not really understanding what you are saying here...
    It just changes Display Name, not your actual name. Any command that has to do with a name like tp or give, you need their real name, not display name. It doesn't mess up permissions... I don't really know what you are asking.

    I just installed this plugin for my own server, but the problem is that when I use /rename <player> <player name>,
    it seems to work but nothing change concerning the player display name...
    How can I solve it ?
  18. Offline


    um, can you post anything in the log that will help? or cb build, other plugins?
  19. Offline


    I love you! This is so what I needed! Works perfectly and is simply awesome!

    A question; does it change the name above their head?
  20. Offline


    No :( Sadly it does not, BUT it is useful to see their actual name, I don't think there is a way to change the name above a person's head.
  21. Offline


    Ah, it's fine! Still a VERY helpful plugin :D
  22. Offline


    I don't know why but now it does work... ><

    Thank you a lot !

    Thanks for making a renamer that has permission support!
    One thing I'd like to suggest is, could you add a command to reveal someone's real name? Like maybe a /who command that shows real name - fake name, or some kind of lookup command.
  25. Offline


    I experimented with that, but I gave up for now because I was also developing another plugin. I will take another look at this soon.
  26. Offline


    Can you make so the name doesn't resets when you log out? ;)

    But still an awesome plugin! Thanks!

    Where are these config / name changes stored? Whats the impact on the server? How's the lag? Will I die young?​
  28. Offline


    I can add name saving if you want, but currently it is VERY lightweight, it adds no lag on my server, and hopefully you won't die young. I was going to add a .db saving like Basic Name Changer, and as far as I know they don't have color or permissions support. (thats why I made this)
  29. Offline


    And yes please persistence so the name doesnt reset on log out
