  1. Hi there, I was wondering how I would get a server MOTD? I want it so that the MOTD is displayed on a item in a GUI but on the lore. How would I do this?
  2. There isn't an API or anything for it unless you use another plugin.

  3. Found this, do you think it'll work?
    Code (Text):
    try {
    Socket sock = new Socket("skorcraft.net", 25565);
    DataOutputStream out = new DataOutputStream(sock.getOutputStream());
    DataInputStream in = new DataInputStream(sock.getInputStream());
    int b;
    StringBuffer str = new StringBuffer();
    while ((b = in.read()) != -1) {
    if (b != 0 && b > 16 && b != 255 && b != 23 && b != 24) {
    // Not sure what use the two characters are so I omit them
    str.append((char) b);
    System.out.println(b + ":" + ((char) b));
    String[] data = str.toString().split("§");
    String serverMotd = data[0];
    int onlinePlayers = Integer.parseInt(data[1]);
    int maxPlayers = Integer.parseInt(data[2]);
    "MOTD: \"%s\"\nOnline Players: %d/%d", serverMotd,
    onlinePlayers, maxPlayers));
    } catch (UnknownHostException e) {
    // TODO Auto-generated catch block
    } catch (IOException e) {
    // TODO Auto-generated catch block
  4. Have you tried it?
  5. I'm using that as well.. I have not tested it, but the guy who made it said it works.
  6. I'll go and try it now ;)
  7. Okay, it works.

    I'm gonna add it to the GUI in a minute but how could I change the item in the GUI? For example if the MOTD was to say 'Lobby' the item in the GUI would be a emerald block and if it the MOTD was to say 'InGame' it would change to a redstone block. How would I be able to do this?
  8. if (servermotd.equalIgnoreCase("onLobby") {}
  9. Also, while it is working for you. I just found this (I remembered .getServer() exists):

    How are you setting servermotd?
  10. Ow ok, that was stupid of me to not know. #FACEPALM
  11. Ok, just done this and it works :D
    The online lore is the MOTD of another server I have.
  12. SOLVED
