Known problems:

  • Human pets may not render correctly for 1.8 clients


See below for major changes with 1.7.8

  • This release includes the support for all MC versions from 1.6.4 through to 1.7.8
    • This was supposed to be included in the previous versions, but was not. Sorry ;c


Changes in 2.3.1:

  • Fix an important NPE


EchoPet 2.3.0 is known to be compatible with ANY Minecraft version from 1.6.4 through to 1.7.8:

IMPORTANT: Due to Mojang's decision to work towards name changing, UUIDs are now used in 1.7.8 and above to identify players. As a result, usernames are no longer guaranteed to be unique.

What this means if you are running EchoPet on 1.7.8 and after: EchoPet now comes with a built in UUID Migrator to automatically update your data files to the new UUID system instead of names. SQL Database tables will NOT be updated automatically, and as such it is recommended you clear these yourself before updating to EchoPet v2.3.0.

If you are not running 1.7.8, there is no need to worry. EchoPet will save all your data as it always has and will not change to a UUID system. However, this may cause problems upon the release of 1.8.

Change-log for 2.3.0:

  • Add compatibility for 1.7.8, 1.7.5 and 1.6.4, whilst maintaining support for versions in between
  • Complete migration to UUID based saving in preparation for Mojang's latest UUID-based authentication changes
  • Close menus after an item is clicked. Prevents users from taking items out of any inventory menus
  • Reload the lang config with /petadmin reload
  • Improvements to resizing of entity hitboxes
  • Fix colour codes not working for pet selector customisations
  • Redesign the help menu. Commands can now be hovered over for help
  • Adjustments to flying of Ghast and Enderdragon Pets
  • Better dynamic command registration, thanks to @CaptainBern
  • Support for players joining invisible using VanishNoPacket
  • Various other fixes to improve the user experience

API: EchoPet is now packaged as com.dsh105.echopet instead of io.github.dsh105.echopet. This means that both your imports and maven dependencies will have to be updated. This also raises awareness of the major API changes that have occurred outside the EchoPetAPI class.

The EchoPet plugin has been completely redesigned and split into various modules. This allows the support of multiple MC versions in one EchoPet release. It is highly recommended to stay out of the com.dsh105.echopet.compat.nms packages.
