    1. Download the song.
    2. Convert it to OGG
    3. Host on public place like dropbox.

    I have an idea for the Splash Screens. I hope that this is possible.
    The Picture should be in the Center of the Screen and shouldn't be adjusted in size. Becaus I use a 1920*1080 Screen, but my User maybe not ,so the picture looks good by me but not by my users or by my users it looks well but not by me.

    So 1 Picture for All screen resolutions.

    Srry for my bad english. I hope you understand my Idea.

    Wow, this looks fantastically complex and feature packed - I like that! I have to ask though, does it support HD texture packs? And does the regional texture pack feature really work? How long does it take for a pack to download upon entering a region? Thanks!
  8. Spoutcraft supports HD textures anyway so it's not an issue with SpoutEssentials. It takes the same amount of time it would if you were downloading the link directly. I recommend against hosting or linking against Dropbox for texture packs or audio as it's speed rate is a bit slow. I personally run lighttpd on the same box as the minecraft server to provide this static content. It's much speedier and is easier for you to manage.

    EDIT: Be careful when forcing HD texture packs to your users. I would recommend no higher than 32x packs.

    I'll give lighttpd a go - reducing download times and server spikes is essential for our setup. As for HD resolutions, we refuse to force users to download any resolution higher than 32x anyway, as we realise some people have issues running HD packs anyway.
  10. Lighttpd is lightweight and very simple to set up - for this sort of use it is much more suitable than Apache. The impact is an additional 1MB of RAM being used, up to possibly 8.

    If I have a bukkit server running at, I'd recommend something like or (allowing for moving later on)

    Example links:

    Then again, I have over 12 different tunes and 3 custom texture packs for different worlds and areas, a bit of organisation is necessary :) My favourite being the hell track from PSX Worms playing in any area below block height 40 :p

    Hi im new to bukkit and i was wondering if there was a tutorial on how to install this?

    At last! Version 3.4.2 is working although the version showing in the console is 3.4.

    Finally, are you willing to tell me what do I have to put inside modules.yml to stop that annoying auto-update thing, again there's nothing in there that looks like autoUpdate?
    My modules.yml (I've edited some of the lines):
    #Disable/Enable modules here
    EnablePlayerLeaveNotifications: true
    enableGroupSkin: false
    enableOnJoinMusic: true
    enableWorldGuard: false
    allowSkawkeSupport: true
    disableOnScreenHelpCompletely: true
    enableMusicPlayList: false
    enableBoseEconomySupport: false
    EnablePlayerJoinNotifications: true
    forceTexturePack: false
    enableModDisguiseSupport: true
    enableScreenCommands: true
    enableTownySupport: true
    enableVanishNoPacketSupport: false
    enableiConomySupport: false
    enableSplashScreen: false

    does this require some sort of client-side mod too? or is it just server-side?
  14. Offline


    it requires the Spout plugin and the Spoutcraft client

    Okay, this is probably me being stupod, but texture packs aren't working. Upon startup, I got an error saying that Spoutessentials couldn't start because of the " default: LOOK AT THE THREAD FOR MORE INFO. DO NOT CHANGE THIS" line. For some reason it didn't like it, so I deleted it. Let me say that the plugin wouldn't start at all otherwise, so this was necessary. Under "texturepack:" I have a link to the Johnsmith texture pack from my Dropbox account, yet it isn't working. I looked on Bukkitdev and saw "resetting textures" as a known bug. Is this why?

    Thanks for your help!


    My config looks like this:

    #REMEMBER, Make sure everything is under 26 characters, else your messages will not show
    NotificationServerMessage: Welcome to Ubercraft!
    defaultMoonSize: 100
    pokedNotificationIcon: DIAMOND_ORE
    defaultCloudHeight: 140

    Hello skawke ,
    I really liked the Command GUI that opens when a player presses TAB. Why don't you add a feature to make that GUI configurable? Example, it should create a CommandGUI.yml folder, which will be formatted in such a way:

    It should have a simple API, such as writing "/give player()" would return "/give Funstein" in my case.It should only interpret lets say the first 10 and no more.

    Also I'd like to inform you that there is a serious resolution problem with the GUI. It doesnt look the way its supposed to look on my computer. I could send a screenshot if you want to take a look.

    I'd appreciate if you could implement this feature,
    Thank you,

    Simply run the server, and it'll add the line to modules.yml. Should be enableAutoUpdate:
    There's nothing wrong, except for the fact the splashscreen HAS to be a .png.
    Can you open a ticket with the entire error?

    I understand ^^ I'll see what I can do.
    Look at the Spout thread.

    I've restarted my server 2 or 3 times after v.3.4.2 was downloaded by the Kalman Olah's OKUpdate auto-update.
    Anyway, I manually inserted "enableAutoUpdate: false" and it's working now, I mean, it's not showing:
    17:12:35 [INFO] [SpoutEssentials] Initiating auto-update...
    17:12:36 [INFO] [SpoutEssentials] You already have the latest version of SpoutEssentials.
    in the console anymore ;)
    Thank you for your great plug-in :D

    I can't get the Splash Screen to work. Another thing is that are you supposed to be able to see your own cape, becuase I can not. :p
  24. Offline


    You're suppose to see your own cape and splashscreens have to be in PNG format.
    Errors? Be more specific.

    John McCarthy

    I am unable to see my cape for some reason. haha.
    I figured out the splashscreen but is there anyway to center it? :p
  26. Offline


    For now, the only way to center it is to make the PNG the size of the default MC window.

    Would you care to share the size with me? haha :D
    What image editing program do you use, if you made the logo in the video.
    I hate to go off topic, but I am having a hard time troubleshooting

    can you please add this feature in the next update :)

    A Customizable TAB Menu. Like in the configs, there are options like this 'Button Name:' and 'Command:'

    An example would be like this
    Button Name: 'Heal Me!'
    Command: '/heal'
    Button Name: 'DONT PUSH THIS'
    Command: '/suicide'

    and I keep getting this error:

     [SEVERE] Could not pass event CUSTOM_EVENT to SpoutEssentials
    java.lang.UnsupportedOperationException: All skins must be a PNG image
        at org.getspout.spout.player.SimpleAppearanceManager.checkUrl(

        at me.skawke.spoutessentials.SpoutEssentialsSpoutListener.onSpoutCraftEnable(

        at net.minecraft.server.NetworkListenThread.a(SourceFile:105)
        at net.minecraft.server.MinecraftServer.h(
    This happens when I try to use the New Logo feature. THE PROBLEM IS, My logo and all my skins are in the PNG format. So, why does this error show when my logo is already in the png format?
