    i can't seem to get the send and recv to work do you power the send sign? could you post a screenshot maybe
  3. Offline


    Um, easiest way tonight would be for you to give my your IP. I'll work on screenshots for the signs eventually.
  4. Offline


    I as well am unable to get the send and recv to work at all, could you possibly give any debugging tips?

    I have a sign

    it has power (GOING TO THE FRONT)

    Have another sign about 5 blocks away for testing

    with redstone attached to it (front and back for testing)

    nothing every happens when input changes. Also cant get proximity to work
    [to note: Addon does show as loaded and enabled when server starts up, and im an admin with * permissions.

    Oh, put a lever on the back of the :recv sign. [#/ The sign toggles the lever. I think I fucked up my help files. :p

    [ = sign, # = block, / = lever

    haha, well I gave that a try... still no go, I wonder if I have some kind of conflict or something... heres some pics

    For the hourly chime? I can live with that, especially if providing a high to the sign will reset it's time period. This would let me use a :ctime in conjunction with the timer sign to reset at least once a day to resolve any potential drift!

    Perhaps it could reset itself on any kind of redstone change, high or low? That would allow me to use a single :ctime to reset the clock twice a day.

    Holy cow, a timer sign, how fine grained could the timer be? I could see this supplanting all forms of three dimensional timers!
  8. Offline


    I could have a timer sign accurate down to a 20th of a second, a second as the server sees it at least. Lag would distort that, but it would stay relative to the length of the day. As long as 24000 is divisible by the timer interval you set, it would always line up with the day.

    Ok molster. First, are you sure you have 2.0 installed? If the sign's arguments don't turn orange when you put the sign down, the plugin didn't recognize it. Second, all PailStone ICs have to be wall signs. Third, the output from the :recv sign IS the lever. It will turn the lever on, and the lever provides the redstone power.

    ok Ive tried it as a wall sign... no go, but as you said, nothing had turned orange as you said it should.

    When the sever starts up, I get
    "22:38:11 [INFO] [PailStone] Loading Sign
    22:38:11 [INFO] [PailStone] Enabled"

    I just installed it. (download right from your site no more than 30 mins ago)

    im going to start tunring other plugins off.

    What CraftBukkit version are you running?

    bah how could I be so silly, im not using 493, I just installed Bukkit today, so im using a later version.
  12. Offline


    Ok, I've updated for the newest version. I missed the fact that we switched recommended builds. :p

    They dropped a method that I used. >.>

    i shall test now :)
  14. Offline


    well good news is everything is working =D im having one issue (but its due to me being a noob. When it gets, or loses power, (on the send) it does make the recv level switch (on or off) however, it seems to not be powering any of the redstone... (if I flip the switch myself on or off, it will power and unpower the redstone, but if I let the send/recv flip it on and off, itdoes not) what dumb thing am I doing? =P
  15. Offline


    That sounds REALLY odd.

    Oh damn.

    I broke it.

    Ok, give me 15 minutes to figure this out.
  16. Offline


    :( It kinda works now . Text goes orange n all but when i hit the lever and it powers the recv lever switches but when i unpower the send lever it the recv lever doesn't do anything , so i break the redstone for the send to the lever and it switches the recv lever... And when i put the send lever on back of block it also doesn't work.
  17. Offline


    thats what hes working on right now =D

    Done. I just re-uploaded as 2.01. Changing the version number gets tedious.

    They really need to give us a recommended build changelog, and a bit of advanced warning when they change the function of methods. They expect US to supply our users with these concise changelogs. Why they didn't just '@deprecated' Block.getRawData() is beyond me.

    They changed the way block data was retrieved. My sign didn't know which was it was facing, so it couldn't update the lever.

    Just tried new version still not working... maybe im doing it wrong but i don't think so
  20. Offline


    I thought the same thing. you have to put the redstone "behind" the lever it seems.
  21. Offline


    hahaha just tried it thanks
    side works to , seems like as long as the redstone isnt just a straight path to the lever
  22. Offline


    oh odd, if I have any redstone on the side of the :recv block, it wont work, the only place I can have redstone for it to work is behind the lever (if I have it behind the lever and on the side of the block, whole thing dosnt work.

    actully, it dosnt seem to work at all now... the proximity one is working perfect...gonna test some more.
  23. Offline


    I mean on the side of the redstone , such as 2 redstone to the lever ,and i just have 1 redstone off to the side
  24. Offline


    EDIT: ok problem only fond on the send/recv it will send a "power on" ... but it wont send a" power off" (it sends it, but it doses not update.

    edit 2: its working perfectly now... im not sure whats going on, im going to shut down the server fully and take a look then.
  25. Offline


    Ok, now you guys just have me confused. I'll come on your server and help out if you want, but a lever is a lever is a lever. If it powers redstone at all, it powers redstone in every way a lever should.
  26. Offline


    it dosnt power the side of the block, here my dev server -------
  27. Offline


    molster and I figured out what was wrong and its fixed in 2.01. The lever wasn't changing the powered state of the block it was on properly.
  28. Offline


    I setup three blocks in a row, one block with a sign ( :logic, AND) then the other two blocks away (three or so spaces away from the sign block) and attached levers to all three blocks. in any possible option and cant get any output to redstone from the sign block. same thing goes for the send recv commands as well.

    current setup:

    craftbukkit 527 (also tried 493)
    pailstone 2.01 (no permissions installed)
    tried with and without essentials (both times without groupmanager and groupbridge)

    I have high hopes for this but im having no luck at all. could you show me a pic of a basic AND gate setup? thanks!
