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 :-/

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 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.
