An auto-messaging/auto-announcement/announcer/thing system for your minecraft server.

Bukkit version doesn't matter for this plugin. Please don't ask me to update it for that reason.


Okay, so here's my first plugin which I've actually released that isn't amazingly small-scale. It's a fairly simple plugin which relays messages, at the rate in minutes, set in the configuration. It allows for colours, multi-line messages, message cycling, and message shuffling. I made this because I've seen a few plugins like this, but they're either out-of-date and don't work, or they just don't work, period. From thereabouts comes this plugin, FrogAnnounce. I know the name is lame; I'm not creative with names, sorry.

    @aviswing: Go

    You mean such that "Donate:" and "Vote:" would be on separate lines?

    This feature already exists.

    Try this:

    Hi mate, could you add a feature to have multiple lines? For example:

    Donate: Vote:

    So i can run that ^ example there, could you implement that as soon as possible? Thanks :DD

    There isn't in the current version, but it is planned to be implemented as %player% and released soon.

    Hello, Is there any %player variable support for the announcer?

    Cyrillic support works great, thanks!

    Approval is not completed yet... Could you put new version on some other hosting?..

    @ought: Go

    I just tried it with a Russian message, and it has an issue with the character: 'с'. Let me see if I know what's wrong.

    Edit: it could just be an issue with my console not accepting Russian characters; it shows up as '?' in my console. If you could try it out and let me know if it works, that would be fantastic.
