    <font color="#000000">A Message to all Launchpad Users.</font>
    Thank you to all who have used Bukkit Launchpad, and liked using it. We here at Tectrik hope that this tool has made your Minecraft Server hosting experience easier, and more fun. Unfortunately, all things come to an end.

    One of those things, is actually Bukkit Launchpad. There is actually an untold truth about Launchpad though. It's that we've planned to discontinue it ever since we've released it back in April. Oh, here's something funny. We created the thread before we actually started with the program itself. The only existing snapshot of the [WIP] A 'Launchpad' for Bukkit thread, is here.

    The 'new program' is currently in the works. This thread will have a link to it when it eventually comes out, and this thread will remain UN-DELETED. Oh, and I'd like to ask a Forum Moderator to kindly set this thread to an 'inactive' state.

    Once again, I'd like to thank everyone. Everyone who has allowed me to use their programs as content in mine, that goes the same for plugins Essentials, Pail, PailPlus, PTweaks, all of you guys. And a major shoutout to LogMeIn Inc. who allowed me to add in Hamachi.

    The one person I'd like to thank more specifically, would be Bertware. He gave me coding advice, helped me when I had issues, and also for allowing me to implement the BukkitGUI project.

    There's always more to come.

    The .jar file is not in there by default. You need to open the Bukkit Launchpad to download the jar. Ill post a tutorial tomorrow, dont worry

    Things to look to:
    -Build in release configuration instead of publishing your project, it's a lot more user friendly (it will give you just a working .exe)
    -I got FileNotFound exceptions when I tried to run a program from the launchpad (I changed launchpad.exe.deploy to launchpad.exe, as I didn't want to install). Catch those errors.
    -Generate the .bat file dynamic, or replace

    Okay, When Beta 1.6 comes out I'll build in release configuration and fix those batch errors. I'll post it up today, whenever Black_Katana gets around fixing our version of the Minecraft Server Tool. Remeber, it's still in beta and there IS quite alot to fix.

    Version 6.0b, woo hoo!

    Metro, question. I'm changing the server settings. You know by double clicking and changing the text. But let's say I'm trying to change the "Online Mode" from true to false. What am I doing wrong for it not to correctly work on the server? I'm doing a cracked server and cracked players are still getting the "Not premium" Message. Am I doing this wrong or is there a manual way to do it? Maybe there's some kind of "Ok" button I'm not seeing after I change all the settings... e-o and yes, I've restarted the server several times with no change.

    EDIT: Wait .-. I think I figured it out. I'm dumb.

    EchoHayashi It is pretty easy if you just look. Congrats on finding it, btw

    Still filenotfound exception when I try to run something from the launchpad.
    Note: not installed in C:\, because I have an SSD and I wanted this test to be on my HDD in another folder. You need to handle this, just use relative paths.
  14. Offline


    Okay, but can you tell me how to do that? I've heard of a line of code, is it instead of C:\Tectrik_Bukkit will it be something like &folder;\Tectrik_Bukkit? PM me if that's correct, I haven't done relative paths in a while

    for example, in case your laucnhpad is in the same folder as the tools.
    Else you could do something with

    if your launchpad is one level higher.
    take a look at directoryinfo for more info about what it can

    Bertware Okay, I'm updating the code as fast as I can...

    .-. I really really like this. It's a lot easier to work than the other Auto Installer I was using. One thing that's frustrating though (I'm using the GUI at the moment) is that it doesn't have Essentials installed already, and because it's a zip file on GUI when you search for it. It says it doesn't support zip files yet D: Is it going to sometime soon? Oh and when I download the .jar file of essentials and then put it in plugins myself.. when I run the GUI it says that it doesn't have the information or blah blah whatever, and just doesn't allow me to use the plug-in.
  18. Offline


    You do not drag the essentials zip file into your plugins folder. The thing you do is, you have to unzip the zip archive then drag and drop the 3 or 4 .jar files that are in there. But if it bothers you that much, then I'll talk to the Essentials team about having that plugin in here with Launchpad.

    OMG THIS IS EPIC i am trying to make a server for the first time and this is SOOOOOOO easy no bugs lol so epic dude good job luvyah lol
  20. Offline


    Everytime someone joins the server it automatically says that the qui has stopped working... how to do i fix this?
  21. Offline


    Hmm, perhaps the computer you are running this on isn't good enough to run a CraftBukkit server. Either that, or try running the server normally instead of using a GUI. When Launchpad 1.2.0 comes out we'll have PTweaks and Essentials. Also, I'll post some minimum system requirements on 1.2 release date.
  22. Offline


    It doesn't really bother me to do it manually like that, but sometimes I can get rather lazy ._. So would I let's say download Essentials from the normal place. Get it unzipped by WinRar or whatever AND THEN drag and drop the I believe 4 .jar files into the plug-ins folder? :3 Thank you so much for making this x.x It's so much more easier than dealing with just bukkit by itself. When do you think 1.2 will be released?

    What is Pail? I've seen many server owners use it, but I have no clue what it is :3.
  24. Offline


    1.2 is already out, I actually meant 1.3 :3 and It'll be coming out as soon as essentials accepts my request.

    Pail is a plugin that adds a GUI to bukkit. and is also cross-platform.
