execute @e[type=armor_stand,name:"Luis Fonsi"] ~ ~ ~ /particle witchMagic ~ ~ ~ 0 0 0 1 1

I'm trying to make a meme armor stand and add particle effects but I can't seem to get the execute command working because it doesn't see the name properly cause it has 2 words. I know I'm doing something wrong but no idea what

I'm playing in 1.12 on a server. If that helps Entity '@e[type=armor_stand,name:"Luis' cannot be found Error Message ^

  • Which version are you using? since 1.13, the command format has drastically changed and your format looks very much like before 1.13. and what error did you get? – D-Inventor Sep 7 '18 at 18:41

    Entity '@e[type=armor_stand,name:"Luis' cannot be found Is the error message and im playing on 1.12 – Chaotic Sep 7 '18 at 18:51
  • It looks like the name selector argument doesn't support spaces in 1.12 (but does in 1.13 according to the wiki). A score_is_luis_fonsi selector argument might work as a workaround though. – Unionhawk Sep 7 '18 at 19:04

I managed to accomplish the same thing just by using this command:

execute @e[type=armor_stand,c=1] ~ ~ ~ /particle witchMagic ~ ~2 ~ 0 0 0 0 50

Basically it looks for the closest armor stand which is the one i want to edit. Its not really helpful if you want to do it by name but its an easy solution.



I think you should replace the name: with name= So your command becomes:

execute @e[type=armor_stand,name="Luis Fonsi"] ~ ~ ~ /particle witchMagic ~ ~ ~ 0 0 0 1 1

I am not completely sure of this but I think it should work.
