Solved Essentials Chat Format REFUSES to Work.

  1. I have my essentials chat format setup how I wanted it. However, It DOES NOT work. I have removed several plugins I thought were breaking it, but none of them worked :( I am on essentials dev 2.12.4! Here is my plugin list:

    I know it is a lot, but I actually use them all. Here is my essentials chat config:

    Basically, I want it to display something like this:

    "[Faction] Name: MESSAGE"

    It instead displays like this:

    "<Faction Name> Message"

    I have been trying to fix this for ages. I just can't :( it has literally been broken forever. I don't know what is doing it, and I haven't been able to change it forever :( please help!

    P.S. I am using Spigot.

    Did you even once think about looking in Faction's preset config for chat?

    "chatSetFormatTo": "<{factions_relcolor}§l{factions_roleprefix}§r{factions_relcolor}{factions_name|rp}§f%1$s> %2$s",

    Nothing to do with Spigot at all.
  3. I have looked for that FOREVER. I am using an old faction. The one before MCore. Where is that located, and how can I make essential bypass?

    /plugins/factions/config.json I think.

    Don't have a build offhand that still uses only Factions, but I think if you edit this line

    "chatSetFormat": true,

    It should disable it. If not, try adding your Essentials chat into it and see if anything good comes of it?
  5. No, That is not in mine, as previously stated, I am using an older version because I can't use MCore. So, I have the version before that.

    Factions 1.8.2:
    "chatSetFormat": false,
    "chatSetFormatTo": "<{faction_relcolor}§l{faction_roleprefix}§r{faction_relcolor}{faction_tag_pr}§f%s> %s",
    "chatParseTags": true,
    "chatParseTagsColored": false,

    "chatTagEnabled": true,
    "chatTagRelationColored": true,
    "chatTagReplaceString": "[FACTION]",
    "chatTagInsertAfterString": "",
    "chatTagInsertBeforeString": "",
    "chatTagInsertIndex": 1,
    "chatTagPadBefore": false,
    "chatTagPadAfter": true,
    "chatTagFormat": "%s§f",

    Both in conf.json

  9. There you go [FACTION] is the tag not {faction_*}
  10. So, What am I editing here? I am not very plugin savvy(Even though I have been doing this for 5 months).

    "chatTagEnabled": true,

    Change that to false and Essentials should override it.
  12. I did that...did not work. ^.^ Let me do it again!
  13. Factions wont parse the tag then and you will be left with [FACTION].
    Unless essentials handles it as well of course :S

  14. Ok, I what Dmck2b said...it now shows no faction tag, but it is still the "<name>Message" format. Even thought that's not the format I have it set to.

    Do I HAVE to have group formats?
  15. Also this is the format for essentials that you want [FACTION]&r{DISPLAYNAME}: &r {MESSAGE}
  16. I gave it that format, and essentials says it's working, but it isn't :( I don't understand.

    It's like it just goes to default.
  17. I did all you guys said, and it broke my config! Now I am left here trying to figure this out.
  18. Ok, I did this and it broke my config. Now what do I do!??!
  19. Fixed that, but now it just says:

    [FACTION]Lecraeman: Hey Everyone.

    It actually says faction...instead of replacing it.
