I own a minecraft server and I am making a TnT run minigame all from command blocks for good experience working with CMD blocks.

So I wanted to basically display a title to the players in the minigame. So I decided to do this via a scoreboard. So when they get teleported to the arena, they have a value set to 1 on a scoreboard objective, I then want to display this title to the players with a value of 1.

How is this done?

  • You may have better luck over at gamedev.stackexchange.com. As this is almost out of the scope of this site as the question pertains to programming, then again since its mod development it may fall under this site.

  • @ColeBusby this seems to be a question on using Command Blocks which is on-topic here

  • I don't think you can set per-player scoreboard displays using command blocks. In vanilla, scoreboards set to display is displayed to ALL players on the server, unless you use the org.bukkit.scoreboard library of methonds in a Bukkit plugin to manipulate it. As for scoreboards, try using /scoreboard objectives display [location] [objective name].

Create scoreboard objective:

/scoreboard objectives add inArena dummy

Run on clock to give people in the arena an inArena score of 1:

/scoreboard players set @a inArena 0
/scoreboard players set @a[x=<X>, y=<y>, z=<z>, dx=<X length>, dy=<Y length>, dz=<Z length>] inArena 1

To display the title to people with inArena of 1:

/title @a[score_inArena_min = 1] <Title>

A simple Specification tag may be used.

/title @a[score_(ObjectiveName)_(min/max)] title {"text":"Insert Message Here"}

[score_(ObjectiveName)_(min/max)] is your Specification Tag, this can be used in many ways like specifying for a certain gamemode (m=[0-3]), being at coordinates (x=[Insert X Coord.] y=[Insert Y Coord.] z=[Insert Z Coord.]) to being in a certain range of a certain axis of those coordinates (... dx=[Difference] dy=[Difference] dz=[Difference]).
