    Factions is absolutely not loading complete config files for me. i've stopped server, loaded Mcore into plugins, then Factions, restart, finally now getting config folders but with very little in them. I've heard on many postings that factions is not working since 1.6.2; is that right? I'm on 1.6.4 now and really need this. I'm running a spigot server networked with bungeecord, essentials, worldguard, mcmmo, but I can't see how that would be a problem. Are others having this problem? I'm not willing to strip out my plugins to reload this one on its own, as some have suggested as a fix.

    I found a semi-fix for that: put this in the config:

    But replace it with:
    #format: '<{DISPLAYNAME}> {MESSAGE}'
      format: '&a[{factions_roleprefix}&r&a{factions_nameforce}&r&a] [{GROUP}]&r{DISPLAYNAME}&r&7:&r {MESSAGE}'

    or if you are not using a prefix with something like GroupManager:  
    #format: '<{DISPLAYNAME}> {MESSAGE}'
      format: '&4[{factions_roleprefix}&r&4{factions_nameforce}&r&4] &r&7[{GROUP}] &r{DISPLAYNAME}&r&7:&r {MESSAGE}'

    with the #format: '<{DISPLAYNAME}> {MESSAGE}' portions, just add the # but don't replace the whole line.

    What's wrong with my config file? All it says inside it is the following:

    { "baseCommandAliases": [ "f" ], "dburi": "default" }

    And also, board.json, factions.json and players.json all have "migrated" in them. What's going on? I really need to config something in Factions, but I can't!
