This plugin utilises Hidendra's plugin metrics system, which means that the following information is collected and sent to mcstats.org:

  • A unique identifier
  • The server's version of Java
  • Whether the server is in offline or online mode
  • The plugin's version
  • The server's version
  • The OS version/name and architecture
  • The core count for the CPU
  • The number of players online
  • The Metrics version

If you wish to disable this feature (/me cries), you can do so by opt-ing out, which you can do in the config file under /plugins/PluginMetrics/

    I am getting an error when I try to run the 1.7.1 version. It says It cant find a valid monster.yml file. I tried installing an older version also and it generated the file but then whenever I try to become a class I get an internal error saying that it cant find player invalid interact file because it doesn't exist. Does anyone know ho to fix this?

    Finally uploaded DvZ 1.7.1 and SpellItems 2.0.

    Sorry for the long wait but it took longer than expected. These Versions have been tested but only with the default config. Please report any bugs you encounter. I will release a bugfix version in 2 weeks if there are any gamebreaking issues.

    Right now the files are waiting for approval.

    The next Version will be delayed a bit because I stumbled about a bug in the last testrun. It shouldn't take more than 5 days from now.


    This issue should be fixed in the next version.

    When I try and play the game on my server and when you click a class, when you spawn you have no items.

    Are you meant to spawn with them?

    Edit: also when I am trying to pick a class the gui will not close

    @Darthmineboy: Go

    I will try to use this method, but I'm still experimnting with another Idea.

    I don't know. Did you allready try it? What was the result? I will maybe look into this when I'm done updating the plugin.

    @And_S: Go

    This is no place for advertisements however this is something you could look into. I know that the plugin ProWalls used worldedit to load the maps, it works with schematics. It works fluently as long as it doesn't paste it as 1 big schematic but as multiple schematics ( 1 chunk = 1 schematic ) every few ticks.

    Besides this, is it possible to use this plugin along side HeroChat and still have the ranks like Miner, Alchemist etc showing?

Which Disguise Plugin would you want DvZ to use?
