Available for 1.7.10 and 1.8.0 at the download link.  Older versions linked at the bottom of the description

This mod displays what people say above their head. Useful for crowded servers where the chat lines fly by. This way you can hold a conversation with people near you.

This is similar to VoxelChat, but VoxelChat functions best with a server plugin. This has a lot of work on the client side done so that it has a lot better chance of working on servers that don't use the server plugin. That said, this has used the server plugin too in the past, and may again, and VoxelChat now includes the better client side parsing from this mod.  So not much separates them now aside from looks :-/


Modpacks:
This mod may be included in modpacks, if

  1. I am credited (please include a link to this page)
  2. you do not make money from the modpack.  No charging for it or putting it behind an ad link (like (Ad link removed))

Install
: Install Liteloader, then put the ChatBubbles .litemod file in your .minecraft/mods folder.
also, Liteloader works fine with Forge (or without it)



Known Issues:

  1. nicknames will not work. If the name attached to the chat message is different than the name above someone's head, there is no way to match that. Wouldn't mind redoing this so there's a server component that communicates better with the client re: who sent a message
**Chatline formats currently handled properly (not exhaustive):
pretty much anything with a : or a > after the name
almost anything with name in a < > block


The general case regular expressions are pushed about as far as I can go. The mod now has the ability to use custom regex lines per server. There are a few examples in

/.modloader/mods/chatbubbles/customRegexes.txt (after you run minecraft with the mod once). Each line is four parts.

  1. server address (with port if necessary).
  2. regex to match that server's chat format(s).
  3. which ( ) group corresponds with the playername. Can be multiple comma separated values in the case of an OR in the regex (for multiple wildly different styles on a server).
  4. ( ) group corresponding to the message.
Add more lines to that file and they will be used. If you can't work it out, as usual send me your server's chat format and I can help you put together a new custom line.

Note: Showing last 25 of 27 logs.

Update #27 : 10/29/2015 8:00:04 am10/29/15

version for 1.8 has existed for a long time.  Made public because why not

Update #26 : 07/05/2014 7:06:25 pm7/05/14

fix import error (could have caused crash if running this and not voxelmap)

Update #25 : 07/03/2014 4:41:48 pm7/03/14

updated to 1.7.10
Switched to Liteloader

Update #24 : 02/02/2014 12:06:26 am2/02/14

1.7.2 update. now requires Forge. Much more compatible with other mods that change the player renderer

VoxelModpack functionality temporarily out until I can code it back in. The VoxelModpack was the only way for this to function with nicknames. Will bring it back, though in the meantime one could just use VoxelChat

Update #23 : 09/23/2013 5:00:28 pm9/23/13

1.6.4 update

Update #22 : 07/29/2013 9:59:59 pm7/29/13

fixed possible hang with 2 repeating characters (ie "<><><><><><><><><><><><><><")

redid play.mc-sg.org's custom regex (functions there again)

note: realmc is currently broken with probably no possibility of functioning again unless they switch their chat format to be less retarded

Update #20 : 07/09/2013 2:42:36 am7/09/13

updated to 1.6.2. Will work with Forge now, and modloader when it updates

Update #21 : 07/09/2013 2:17:33 am7/09/13

update to work around retarded Modloader bug where the mod wouldn't work until you loaded a singleplayer world (details here). Forge is unaffected, is unique to (1.6 and up) of Modloader. Anyway, this fixes Modloader's bug

Update #19 : 07/07/2013 5:45:00 pm7/07/13

disabled debugging output to not spam everyone's log files

Update #18 : 07/05/2013 2:04:17 am7/05/13

update to 1.6.1

Update #17 : 05/24/2013 9:30:46 pm5/24/13

store settings in local minecraft dir (wherever that may be) instead of always in home

Update #16 : 04/08/2013 5:33:05 am4/08/13

fix for possible null pointer issue when changing servers

Update #15 : 03/22/2013 1:26:29 pm3/22/13

update for 1.5.1

Update #14 : 03/14/2013 12:57:06 pm3/14/13

1.5 update

moved some classes around for maintainability while I was at it

Update #13 : 12/30/2012 6:37:09 pm12/30/12

fix for hang bug on lines with the same character many (12+) times in a row

Update #12 : 12/21/2012 5:30:59 am12/21/12

update for 1.4.6

Update #11 : 12/10/2012 10:32:33 pm12/10/12

catch a few more servers (this should be easily more than 90 percent of servers out there)

Also will integrate with VoxelChat on servers that have that plugin installed, so even nicknames will work (only on those servers)

Update #10 : 12/08/2012 4:22:58 am12/08/12

more regex fix. nothing sexy, but needed for proper functioning. should about do it for general case.

Future updates will probably add more custom regex lines (added one more for this while at it)

Update #9 : 12/07/2012 12:20:17 am12/07/12

cleaned up regexs some, should work better with factions

added in custom regex lines. /.modloader/mods/chatbubbles/customRegexes.txt contains some examples. Add more there if you want to try your own. Good luck.

Update #8 : 12/02/2012 4:38:08 pm12/02/12

experimental support for Factions.

stuff like
title [rank] name: text
**title [rank] name: text
c*title c[rank] name: text
ctitle c[rank] name: next

now supported. Things like
<faction name> text
is already fine. I've also seen stuff like
<faction name rank> text
this will not work. Name has to be last in the < > block. Will be fixable on a per-server basis when custom regexs are implemented

Update #7 : 12/02/2012 3:07:02 pm12/02/12

aesthetic fix: text wasn't faded when behind a wall or something. Broke it when implementing fade out for old bubbles.

No custom chat lines yet, no one has sent me a clear precise desired custom format yet

Update #6 : 11/29/2012 3:42:18 pm11/29/12

redid image placement so bubble and bubble tail no longer overlap, so they don't look goofy with transparency applied, like when fading out (new feature) or behind something. Previously I just didn't draw the tail when it was behind something. Had to do this for fading out though!

Anyway, texture packs can include their own images, or players can add their own (like the ones from VoxelChat, which do look rather nice - Personal use only of course, I would never distribute those without their permission!)

Would be happy to distribute any custom ones people make, assuming they have the rights to the art, and allow me to

Update #5 : 11/27/2012 4:16:39 am11/27/12

added support for (staff) or (whatever) after playername. Allows for things like
[world] playername (staff): text
or
[world <rank] playername (staff)> text

Update #4 : 11/24/2012 11:34:20 pm11/24/12

angle brackets < > in text was borking parsing. Servers with username inside < > can have people say stuff with < and > in it and still have chat bubble work now. (changed one instance of .* to [^>]* for you regex mens)

Also fix for the issue some people were having with items turning grey in their inventory after saying something.

Update #3 : 11/24/2012 12:11:12 pm11/24/12

fixed visual bug where chatbubbles could cause visible lines between snow blocks (and probably other stuff).

Added some new server compatibility. <rank name> should work now as well as <[rank] name>

well hopefully it's a .litemod file then.  That's intended.  You install Liteloader, and put the .litemod file in your /mods folder.  Like it says in the Install section :)

download the installer and run it.  should be all you need to do to install liteloader.  To find the minecraft folder, if you are on Windows, press start button, select run and paste this in and press enter: explorer %appdata%\.minecraft

chat bar on the side?  Not sure what you mean by that.  If you mean the regular chat interface near the bottom of the screen, I didn't want to disable that since then you'd miss anything someone who was far away said, and it could be important! 

But are you not seeing the bubbles?  Several possibilities (problem with the install, or server using a really weird format, etc)

colors should make no difference (alll color codes are stripped out before I parse anyway).  I mean stuff like "<rank> [helper] **faction** name says: blah blah" if all the name and rank and faction and whatever else stuff that appears on a chat line is too different from anything else chatbubbles handles, it can't parse it

this is kinda weird but it is really bugging me and i couldn't find a way to fix it or if it's supposed to be like this, but, when i'm using the mod and i go on a server, instead of the pink color or blue color in the bubble, a black ish color fills in the bubble, and makes it fairly hard to see what the player has said, is there any way to fix this? or if i could possibly change the color? thanks~

is that for everyone?  The color of the bubble is randomized, but is set to never go too dark (or you couldn't read it).  If it's just black, that's porobably a bug.  Are you using BetterPVP by any chance?  Sounds like a bug that mod caused with my minimap (that I was able to fix - might have to do it for the bubbles mod too)

do you mean the artwork, or the way the ones up top don't have a tail?  If the former, it's just a matter of swapping the images around.  If the latter, well I'd have to program them that way (like I did with the voxel box bubbles)

I'm just wondering if I did something wrong, but when ever someone talks, even if they arent near me, speech bubbles of what that person said appear randomly in multiple places in the sky, underground, and just anywhere around me. it got so annoying i had to disable the mod.

Please make a version that does not require forge modloader, I dont really like using forge unless its with modpacks like ftb or tekkit. I used to use chat bubbles, zans minimap and optifine at the same time without using forge, I loved it, plz make it

btw, you should set up a donation link, I love your mods and would like to support them/you somehow, thanks :)

I could create a liteloader version.  One nice thing about forge though is the hook to draw something when an entity is rendered.  I can hook into that and have it draw something extra (the bubbles) without affecting the rest of what is rendered.  The old version of chat bubbles (modloader) replaced the player renderer entirely, and had to control rendering the regular stuff (by calling the old renderer) and then drawing the bubbles.  This worked fine, unless someone had another mod installed that affected player rendering, like player animations or something.

For this reason, chat bubbles is the only mod of mine that really needs Forge for its full functionality.  A liteloader version would be an alternative, but one that, in certain cases, just wouldn't work as well

Hi, 

Thanks for a collaboration of awesome mods. I was having difficulty matching Regex for my 1.6.4 server. It is using Herochat and spitting out the following (not including color codes) 

[G] prefix name: message 

Typically the prefix is the permissiongroup public name surrounded in <>, the name is just the name with color, the : is colored different than the name. 

[G] <Mod> Jilael: test 

The herochat uses the following to display: (only oddity is the : after name is a different color) 

default: '{color}[{nick}] &f{prefix} {sender} {suffix}{color}: {msg} 

the nick in this example is the channel nickname, in my case G (note the color before the nick and after the suffix. 

We currently do not use suffixes.

put that in the customRegexes.txt file.  You can include that file in a modpack if there is one
