  • ScoreboardStats
  • MobArena (set override-other-scoreboard: true)

    I can't help but notice that it appears this plugin hasn't had too much attention as of late from the Dev? Is this plugin still in development or has it been abandoned? Just curious, since I'm not so sure there are other plugins out there that display player's health above their heads.

    Healthbar seems to disappear with no errors after about 3 minutes of the server being online. Using scoreboardstats, not sure if there is an interference

    @Games647: Sure, also I noticed you are the developer of ScoreboardStats. If you add my skype I'm sure we could work out the problem a lot easier. - Asuratheboss38

    @Games647: Talked with big developers ect. I got it to work by editing Healthbar settings also but it only works on my test server. Both of my servers have the same plugins ect. I'll be spending some time working this out :p

    @Asura356: Go

    How did you write compatibilityMode? It starts with a lowercase character.

    Take a look here:

    @Games647: Hmmm you seem correct however there is no option for "CompatibilityMode". It tells me in one of my servers logs, not the others that I should enable it however there is no option for this. I have the latest version of both plugins as well as ProtocolLib, any idea? I even tried adding it in the config.

    @Asura356: Go

    Then check out your server log. You'll see this message:

    You are using plugins that requires to activate compatibilityMode
    Otherwise the plugins won't work
    Please enable it in the ScoreboardStats configuration 'compatibilityMode
    Then this plugin sends raw packets, but will still compatible other plugins

    And if you don't have ProtocolLib:

    You need the plugin for compatibilityMode

    This is also mentioned in the config.

    You state that the plugin works with ScoreboardStats yet it does not. You have fixed it partially, mob health works fine but player health does not.
