Message animator title

  • To make an animated message, you have to make multiple messages with SHOW set to very little (ex: 5), and INTERVAL set to 0. As these messages will quickly rotate, they will allow you to make amazing custom animations, that no other servers ever had before. However doing that can sometimes take a few minutes, and can become a pretty boring process. Thats why I made a nice tool called BossMessage Animator, that will help you easily serialize your imagination into YML config messages, that you will simply copy-paste in your config ;)

    Download message animator


Message Variables:
%player% - Player's name
%rdm_color% - Random color from the list
%online_players% - Amount of online players
%max_players% - Amount of player slots
%world% - Player's world
%server_name% - Server's name
%econ_dollars% - Player's amount of dollars (Vault support)
%econ_cents% - Player's amount of cents (Vault support)
%rank% - Player's rank (Vault support)
%sec% - Seconds left (Only if percentage is "auto")

BossBar Variables:
online_players - number of players online
max_players - number of max players
health - number of player's health (out of 20)
econ_dollars - Player's amount of dollars (Vault support)
econ_cents - Player's amount of cents (Vault support)

*Set your percentage to 'auto', to make percentage reduce automatically, showing how long will the message stay up*

Celebrating 50,000 downloads, I added BossMessageLive, which allows you to contact me when I am online with a SINGLE IN-GAME command, and chat with me, to report a bug or get help. The advantage of the it is that you no longer have to leave tickets/comments, and wait for hours or even days for me to reply. Instead, you can get help or solve your issue in minutes. This feature does not take ANY extra performance, and is inactive while not in use, so don't worry about it if you are not planning to use it


  • This plugin has an update checker that will automatically notify you about new updates, and allow you to easily download and install them via one command: /bm update, If you wish to disable that, simply set CheckUpdates to 'false' in your config.yml
  • Just like most other bukkit plugins, this plugin uses Metrics to collect some basic anonymous data, such as your bossmessage version, your minecraft version etc. to help me improve the plugin! Here are the stats that are being collected:


Help me please

I put alot of effort and time developing this plugin, and keeping it the BEST bossbar plugin on bukkit dev! Please help me keeping it up, by donating! Thank you.

    I just updated this to 2.0, and it completely messed everything up. Nothing works with BossMessage anymore. I downgraded, and tried everything, and still keep getting errors. At first it was the stupid join messages, but now - no matter what I get this error!

    [20:05:35] [Server thread/INFO]: [BossMessage] Enabling BossMessage v1.9 [20:05:35] [Server thread/ERROR]: Error occurred while enabling BossMessage v1.9 (Is it up to date?) java.lang.NullPointerException at net.pixelizedmc.bossmessage.configuration.CM.readRegionGroups( [?:?] at net.pixelizedmc.bossmessage.configuration.CM.readConfig( [?:?] at net.pixelizedmc.bossmessage.Main.onEnable( [?:?] at [custom.jar:git-Spigot-1434] at [custom.jar:git-Spigot-1434] at org.bukkit.plugin.SimplePluginManager.enablePlugin( [custom.jar:git-Spigot-1434] at org.bukkit.craftbukkit.v1_7_R3.CraftServer.loadPlugin( [custom.jar:git-Spigot-1434] at org.bukkit.craftbukkit.v1_7_R3.CraftServer.enablePlugins( [custom.jar:git-Spigot-1434] at net.minecraft.server.v1_7_R3.MinecraftServer.n( [custom.jar:git-Spigot-1434] at net.minecraft.server.v1_7_R3.MinecraftServer.g( [custom.jar:git-Spigot-1434] at net.minecraft.server.v1_7_R3.MinecraftServer.a( [custom.jar:git-Spigot-1434] at net.minecraft.server.v1_7_R3.DedicatedServer.init( [custom.jar:git-Spigot-1434] at [custom.jar:git-Spigot-1434] at [custom.jar:git-Spigot-1434]

    @doomlordking: Go

    The INTERVAL works for me. make sure that you specify it in TICKS (20 ticks = 1 second) so 5 minutes would be 6000 ticks.

    @natalievdb: Go

    This plugin works with 1.7.9 (I don't know german, sry)

    @Ladistick: Go

    Thx, if you have any suggestions, post it in Tickets ;)

    I am Victor, I am Russian, and I don't give a f*ck about 99% of the things going on around me in this world! Not even guns or vodka!

    hi de plugin wil niet werken is het te gebruiken met 1.7.9?

  • Avatar of doomlordking doomlordking Aug 21, 2014 at 22:59 UTC - 0 likes

    Is there a way to put a break to messages, so i show shows for idk 1 min then the next one isn't for 5 minute? I thought INTERVAL would do it but no it instantly goes to next one. Through some testing I think it because i had 'Percent: auto', "Percent: #" works.

    @ayyss: Go

    Install the barAPI first, start then stop server, then install this plugin, you can play around with the config file for BossMessage then save & do /bm reload in game.

    Found it, thanks! I haven't used the ticket system much so all I saw were open ones.

    @DarmaMoo: Go

    When in "tickets", go in "Filters", and change the "Status" from "All open" to "All"
