    I thought bukkit/craftbukkit wasn't finished yet.

    @bradcland You're right. It isn't ready yet, this is just a guide on how to install the latest development version on your server.

    It isn't officially released, this is what some people call a "preview build". I will be making sure this thread has the most up-to-date downloads.

    Oh ok, I've been wondering when the preview build would be released.
  7. MAC SUPPORT PLEASE thank you

    There isn't any need for ALL CAPITAL LETTERS. While I would like to provide Mac support, I am currently unable to. If anyone with a Mac would like to create a tutorial, I will add it in this thread.

    Installing for mac and installing for Linux is basically the same. I've got both, so I could do it.

    Had a Linux tutorial here earlier, but the parent post now has a (GUI based) tutorial for Linux, so I'll just keep my command line tutorial here.

    Last Updated: January 13th, 2010 (1/15/11)
    Most Recent Change: Deleted Linux GUI tutorial as parent post has finally seen the light.

    Command line tutorial:

    cd /home/[username]
    mkdir bukkit_server
    cd bukkit_server
    Paste the following:
    java -Xms1024M -Xmx1024M -jar craftbukkit-0.0.1-SNAPSHOT.jar
    chmod +x
    I still may add a Mac OS X tutorial at a later date, though I'm a bit too busy to do that at the moment.
    nvm. :D

    I've got some shell scripts for you guys that'll install bukkit in Linux and OSX. I'm polishing them up right now.

    Thanks for the tutorial and the compliment, Toasty. I would have added Linux, but I don't personally have it.

    You don't need Bukkit. Just Craftbukkit.

    I followed the guide, and it just starts up a vanilla server.

    Mine sets up fine, but I can't connect, as is the server isn't there.. connection refused:connect.

    Port Forwarded and all.

    you have those backwards "Program Files (x86)" is for 32 bit programs and "Program Files" is for 64 bit programs
  16. Offline


    No it is like that C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin on 32-bit and 64-bit and C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin is only on 64-bit system for programs that are still 32-bit.

    that problem has nothing to do with the mod or mc... connect on localhost.

    has to do with the way your ports are set up and such, just dont ask me how to fix it.
    I cant do it either :p

    Awesome, looks like I can start up the server easy. I do have one question though:

    I try to allocate more ram to Server_Starter.bat and the cmd just opens and closes.

    It works fine with 1024 but if I go any higher it will not stay opened. I have 8gb ram on my pc. Thanks for any help!


    It will now open, but this is the message I get.

    Invalid initial heap size: -Xms6144M
    The specified size exceeds the maximum representable size.
    Could not create the Java virtual machine.
    Press any key to continue . . .

    so this one we have to make our own .sh file where as hMod already had. I get that. But are these .jar files legit? like the first release?

    I seem to be having a similar problem.

    You're quite welcome.

    Of course, why would they not be?

    Man, this ain't working for me. I followed every step in the main post for Windows but when I click Server Starter.bat in the last step nothing happens ;/ I see the bat file opens for like a millisecond and the it shut down immideatley.

    I really have no idea what I did wrong here, but I guess I did something wrong since it ain't working correctly.

    It's the environment paths setting ( or was for me ) I tried to skip that step an had the same error, followed the step and it works.
    If you skipped the step .... Errr don't
    If you didn't then look at the line u added and see if java is in that section

    To diagnose click start then click run ( may be in accessories on some versions of windows) type cmd hit return

    A dos box apears
    Navigate to the folder
    (cd .. To go back a folder cd foldername to go onto a folder dir to list a folder contents ie: cd .. Cd.. Till u see c: then cd bukkit )
    Once in the folder of your bat file type into cmd the same as u placed in the bat file it will display any error and u can go from there:)

    ( sorry for bad wording ..dyslexia plus iPhone auto correct plus lack of sleep equal my post :) )

    Well, I just wanted to try real quick on my computer that I play MC on. But when I tried on the server computer that I use my MC server on, it worked perfect.
