Fakename adds a simple way to change your Display name ingame.

The name does display in Chat, Death Messages and over the Head of the Player.
It does not affect your skin.

The name is world/server specific, meaning that it doesn't change your name permanently.
Note that this mod is NOT client side only. If you're playing on a server, the server needs to have the mod installed as well.

To set your fake name, type

/fakename set [player] <fakename>

This will set the player's fake name to the provided fakename. If no player
is specified, the sender's fake name will be changed. You can also use color codes, preceded with a &

Example: "&6Notch" would display as "Notch"
"&4Best&lPlayer" would display as "BestPlayer"

You can also use white spaces by typing /-

Example: "My/-Name/-Is/-Tschipp" would display as "My Name Is Tschipp"
You can of course also combine color codes and white spaces.

To clear a fake name, type

/fakename clear [player]

This will remove the provided player's fake name. If no player is specified, the sender's fake name will be removed.
Aliases for the command are /fn and /fname.
You need to be OP on the Server / have Cheats enabled in your world if you want to execute the command.

To get the real name of a player, type

/realname <fakename>

If the fake name has any color codes or white spaces, ignore them.
Example: "&4Herobrine/-the/-Boss" would become "HerobrinetheBoss"
You can hit tab for auto completion.
This will return the the real name of the player with the provided fake name.
Aliases for the command are /rn and /rname
You do not need to be OP / have Cheats enabled to execute this command.

Hi Tschipp, Is there any config changes I can make to make this work with Chat Bubbles Mod? (I'm asking the same question of the Chat Bubbles author too.)

Hello I just made a mod review over your mod. Here it is. It would be awesome if you can put it up on your mod page.
