    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/)

    Does the latest version save the name changes? Also, is there a way to find out what a players real name is?

    A command like /whoisnick [nickname]
    that echoed back the person actual name would make this great.

    @crohakon It doesn't save the names, I am having a bit of trouble with that, and the problem with checking the name is that you can't return a players real name by identifying the display name, because any player can use any display name. (I think anyways)

    Hey so I was on my server and noticed these:

    Name above head doesn't change
    Name resets when reloging

    I was wondering if you could fix the resetting and since you don't know how to change the name above the head could you make a toggle option to not show the name? Thank you!

    The name above is impossible to change, that is your minecraft name, you can't change it with craftbukkit. It isn't me IT IS IMPOSSIBLE. Also, I am working in persistence now :p

    Agreed. The only problem with this plugin. Keep up the good work! :D

    EDIT: Oops, just saw! That's great. Thanks a lot!

    ummm am i missing something? were can i see the color id's? o:
  11. Offline


    Yes, you clearly are missing something. Colors work by typing an ampersand (&) and either a-f or 1-9. Example
    /rename captainawesome7 &4Derp&6Face
    would rename me to:

    This is the funniest plugin ever! Only few things I'd ask for:
    1. A way to save the changed name on logout. (I'm guessing this might be the persistence support.)
    2. A way to use * "/rename * Notch" or "/rename *" To make every character get a certain name or take everyone's nickname away.
    3. A way to use this on console.
  15. Offline


    I can add /renameall if you want. Yes, the logout thing is persistence support. I got pretty far with persistence but i keep getting the same error. I will eventually add console support as well.

    Works for me :/

    Can we get some way to find the real name of the player? As an admin, it's frustrating trying to remember all the names.
  19. Offline


    Unfortunately this is hard to implement. Because the names aren't stored (no persistence) there is no way to identify The player based on his display name (there could be, but as far as i can tell there is not.

    uuum is it safe to update yet? :) it say not safe up there at download:p
  22. Offline


    Sorry go ahead!

    1.4 Will be released tomorrow with /checkname <displayname> and it will return <displayname> is really <realname> BUT when typing a name that is colored like dark red, say Derpina has display name Derpison You would need to write /checkname &4Derpison
    and it would return &4Derpison is really Derpina

    I know, it is because they player had no entry in the database. I would fix now, but I deleted all of my Eclipse workspace (by accident, I'm retarded) so I can have a fix out by later today.

    I have a problem with conflicting plugins. There's no error though. The confliction is with the Jobs plugin:

    When players have Jobs, they get their name changed to the job, eg Novice Builder Bob. This can change when they level up, eg Master Builder Bob etc.

    Well when Bob leaves the server, DispNameChanger saves Bob's name as "Novice Builder Bob". When he joins again, DispNameChanger makes his name "Novice Builder Bob", as that was what was saved. Then the Jobs plugin picks up and adds Bob's Title to his name again, becoming "Novice Builder Novice Builder Bob". This goes in a loop as well, every time Bob leaves and joins again. We had one player have over 5 job titles in his name at one point.

    The server is running the latest version of Bukkit (740) and the latest MinecraftServer (1.5_02)

    We used the SimpleAlias plugin for a while and that didn't have the problem. I just wanted to have control over other's names so we switched.

    Here's an actual screenshot of it happening:
