Making Titles Longer

Discussion in 'Spigot Plugin Development' started by IllegalSloth, Jun 1, 2017.

  1. How do I make my title appear for longer?
     
  2. Edit: Misunderstood. Use fade and stay for this.
     
  3. You can set the fade in, stay and out.

  4. It would be useful if you put some code explaining how
     
  5. It would be good if you could show us your solution and then we can help.

  6. Which version of Minecraft are you using? For recent versions there is a method for that (Player#sendTitle). For lower version, you'll need to use packets since the spigot api method does not include fade in and out

  8. Yep, as these folks have already said, you need to use either the 1.9+ #sendTitle method, or packets, depending on which version you're writing for.
     
  9. Could you show me an example for 1.8?

    It would make your life a whole lot easier if you were to use Spigot 1.11.2. API methods exist for a reason, and you can't get access to those methods without updating. Show us what you've tried and we'll help you from there. We don't often spoonfeed here because it won't ever help teach you how to do it for yourself in the future.

    Tip, take a look at the PacketPlayOutTitle class as well as EntityPlayer's "playerConnection" field which provides a #sendPacket() method. You can find plenty of resources regarding this topic if you take a nice little search through Google
     
  11. Not to mention we don't actually support 1.8 here. /shrug

  12. If you still need help, Rayzr created an API for this, and you set fade out and fade in, also how long it says up.
