How to Short names in List without affecting Scoreboard

  1. Hey, i was wondering if you guys could help me figure out a way to short names in tablist to make the tablist look less messy without breaking the scoreboard functionality of the health, i know the screenshot is 1.7 but it should essentially be the same as all the other versions.

    P.S: What i mean by breaking the scoreboard func of Health is that whenever i try to short a players name by using setPlayerListName for some reason the health stops to update in scoreboard

  2. Is the scoreboard custom too? If so you have to change the scoreboard entries to the shortened names by using offline players.
     
  3. What i meant by scoreboard is the Scoreboard Objective Health, i'm not using a custom one
     
  4. Well then you'll need to use a plugin to create a custom one.
     
  5. Yea. i figured a way of doing that but it consumes a lot of resources since it runs two for loops every second
