    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/)

    Planned Changes

    Hi, you seem to have the same problem as every other plugin for changing chat name. In the newest update 1060 it stops working. I says it has changed my name, but it haven't. My normal user name still shows up -.-

    I get a server error when trying to use a name which contains a &. I assume this is the correct way to use colors.

    for example: &easkreet

    Why does it say i have no permission to change names?
  5. Offline


    Does this require SpoutCraft? (I'm assuming it does)

    Probably because you don't have the permission node to change names.

  8. Offline


    not that i know of, im pretty new to Bukkit,
    normally i just barge plugins in the plugin folder,
    and they work.

    Well if you don't have any type of permissions manager then make yourself an OP and you should be able to use it.

    that's exacly what's not working.

    Is it possible for you to have Permissions optional? My server would very much enjoy this plugin, however permissions is annoying, and confusing. :(

    Player Killing

    I have a bit of request, i want to use your plugin on my server to change display names however, spout is not compatible with modloaderMP so i cant use that (i know for sure they wont make it compatible because they moaned about modloader being a fail) so could you possibly make a client mod to communicate with your plugin, would love if you could get back to me thanks. (oh and sorry if i'm asking too much)

    @captainawesome7 Bug. When using MobDisguise 1.6 if you use the /md p name command. When people change back to them selfs using /md they lose the custom name. Not for sure why but just wondering if you could fix this.

    I have a problem, i typing in Minecraft /rename and my player name and to what I want to change, and when I always have a messae saying "You don't have a permission to change names" I opped myself and I still getting this message, how can I solve that?

    In my experience the problem is that it's case-sensitive. /rename DaleGribble RustyShackleford opposed to Dalegribble or dalegribble.

    Just the same, /rename HerpDerp and you're on your way for resets. Hopefully that was all the problem was and you already discovered it by now :/

    I still get the problem :(

    This doesn't seem to be compatible with PermissionsBukkit.... :/

    It tells me that i dont have permmission for the command ever though i own the server
  29. Offline


    Then why is cb1000 in the title and not 1060. I know it works but it's not technically updated.
  30. Offline


    The title of the thread has no bearing on the "update" at all. I'm really just too lazy to update the title of the 30+ plugins that I've written and released.

    It doesn't matter if you own the server. You need to install SuperPerms or Permissions 2.7.x/3.x

    It's a different plugin. This plugin sets the join message, it doesn't add one.

    Well people are hesitant to download the plugins when they don't appear to be updated.
