    There's a link to the newest dev version on the spout thread. ;)

    For now I have absolutely no idea why this happens but spout seems to change a lot of default bukkit functions. So I tied to ask the devs of spout:

    As I sayed there: I think spout changes something in bukkits threading code which triggers this error. If this is the case it shouldn't be and it's definitely a bug in spout.
    If I don't get a reply the next few days I will write to a spout dev directly.

    I use
    BUKKIT 1000
    lib24time 0.6
    SignClock 1.8.1
    Spout 1.0.1 /Edit: No new results with the current dev-version. (

    Redstone triggered clock:
    • only one line in SignClock.sav
    • clock doesn't work after restart
    • no error on start
    • Line in config after destruction of the sign still present (<world>,-181,73,-135,1,0)
    Self triggered clock:
    • no new config entry on creation
    • after /stop the config contains the following:
        the world of Kepas Beleglorn,-179,73,-129,1,1
        the world of Kepas Beleglorn,-178,73,-130,1,1
        the world of Kepas Beleglorn,-181,73,-135,1,0
    • on server start again this error occurs

    The on-disk save won't get updated every time you create/destroy a clock. It should update every 15 minutes or when the server stops, if it updates at any other time it's a bug!
    To force a save a server /reload should be enough. ;)

    Uhm everyone, I'm pretty sure using spout 1.0.2 (at least, the RB edition) without using bukkit 1060 causes loading problems... or maybe 1060 came out after all these posts?

    Would it be possible to have a server time/milliseconds enabled version? I need to time how long it takes for a cart to travel between 2 points, and linking this to a pressure plate would work perfectly for my needs, if it had that kind of data.

    Sorry for late answer... But no. This is for in-game time.

    Can it work whitout a redstone?

    Are there any errors on the log/console when the plugin enables and/or you create the sign?
    Do you get a message that a SignClock was created?
    Does it work with redstone?

    Did you read

    might be an idea to add that to the main post as well, many of us server admins dont like having to check a second site for details.

    i dont get any errors in the log, simply put nothing happens, i did howerver go and read the bukkit dev site and see that it requires a lib file (an important fact missing from the original post!) i added it before work and will get back to you once i have a chance to test

    Well, you have to go to the dev side to get the newest download so... ;)

    yeah but i didnt see the requirement there before, i litterly went over to dev to just download it (an annoying step in a fair few plugins now that could of just been linked in the first post of the plugins)
    i now need to get in the habbit of knowing i got to read the proper plugin thread and then the bukkit dev site :(

    The clock was frozen, and when i tried setting up a new clock it didn't work at all

    @Svettnes: Are there any other errors in the logs (when the plugin enables, for example)?
    Do you have files in the plugins/V10lator/themes folder?
    Do you use selfmade themes?

    Would it be possible to add a feature to update the clock just every 5 units instead of 1?
    Not that your plugin would drop server performance or anything, just asking.
