    Minecraft RemoteToolkit
    -Less downtime, more fun for your players, more power to you!

    Are you a Minecraft server administrator? Do you value up-time and stability? Do you fancy the ability to remotely control your server, both in-game and out of game, in a myriad of useful ways from a plethora of different devices?
    If you answered yes to any of the above, then the Minecraft RemoteToolkit is for you!

    What the Minecraft RemoteToolkit Plugin and Wrapper do for you:
    • Provides almost perfect server uptime with no need for action from an owner/administrator!
    • Have your server save and restart at any time period with configurable restart warnings!
    • The Toolkit guarantees a restart within the set restart period, even if your server crashes, becomes unresponsive, or encounters a "SEVERE" exception!
    • Remotely control every function of the Toolkit, even from your smart phone!
    • Full remote console access via telnet with support for multiple terminal types!
    • Telnet daemon conforms to current Telnet related RFCs!
    • Customizable alert messages!
    • Fully extendable though 3rd party modules!
    • Full feature set works with most craftbukkit builds!
    • Most features work with any Minecraft server variation, even vanilla!
    • Telnet can be disabled!

    Okay, first, open either the .bat (if you're on win) or the .sh (mac, linux etc) in a text editor (notepad, textedit). Replace username:pass (wth smiley! It's username*doublepoint*pass) with the username and the pass you set before (EDIT: Sorry, my mistake. You set it by doing that, so just choose something there). Then, on Windows, double click the .bat. On Mac, put the .sh into your home- folder (the one with the home as icon and your username as name). Then, open a terminal and type
    that should do it.

    Ok, is it supposed to be opening a little window, almost the same looking as the run windom, you run the server on?

    component? you mean the other files and that?

    Ok, this is what happend, it all shutted down, then it said something Outofmemory : java heap space, is that important?

    Oh, and btw, i read somewhere, are you supposed to make the rtoolkit.bat your serv starter? and in that case, how?

    Are you somehow able to completely disable any message shown on, for example, a mapsave? Simply erasing the message from messages.txt did not really work out, nor did any combination of quotes I tried out so far.

    Yes, it opens the console, but inside the wrapper.
    That means you give your server not enough RAM. Go into the "toolkit"- Folder and set the RAM- Settings to something higher.
    NEVER choose something higher than you have available, and also don't go until the limit, because the OS needs some RAM, too, especially when you use the computer not only as server. Set both settings with Heap Space in them (I don't remember the exact names now) to the same.
    Yeah. Always start the server by just double clicking the .bat. :)

    Glad I could help, I hope you'll be ready to use this awesome tool soon.

    What are those things?
    Is there craftbukkit.jar in your server directory? Also look in toolkit -> if the server name is correct.

    How I can configure this with
    itemcraft ?
    it's possible ?

    /sorry for english

    @efstajas Thank you for helping with toolkit support, I do appreciate it :)

    Leaving the strings blank is meant to work, as far as I know. This sounds like a bug, i'll try to get a fix up soon.

    You will need to modify the overridden argument property with the command you would usually start the server with itemcraft, but without the wrapper. You also need to remember to add the line that disables jline. I'm sorry I can't give any specific help, I don't have much time on my hands. If you get stuck with this, just ask and I will try to give you more specific help when I can (may be a few days).

    Can you give me a copy of the website script please? It would really help as I need to change the BG colour and text colour(<--- Australian Spelling) so I can Iframe it into my site for all my admins. Thanks

    There's a craftbukkit.jar, yes, and it's like commands you can do, listens some commands.
    So, what should i have typed inside rtoolkit, or should i add something in craftbukkit,jar?

    Ah, good to hear. :)
    For reference's sake, that's the error I get on startup:
    Loading toolkit String index out of range: -1
            at java.lang.String.substring(Unknown Source)
            at java.lang.String.substring(Unknown Source)
            at com.drdanick.McRKit.McRKitLauncher.loadMap(
            at com.drdanick.McRKit.McRKitLauncher.loadProperties(
            at com.drdanick.McRKit.McRKitLauncher.<init>(
            at com.drdanick.McRKit.McRKitLauncher.main(
    It then simply replaces the empty line with the original one.

    This does not work it simply undbinded my server from my port and wrecked my server i am quite amused at what scheme plugins people make just to ruin peoples servers.
  21. Oh this does work perfectly well. It must be a fault on your end, either wrong setup or malfunction...

    You shouldn't have to type anything, just double click the bat. What shows up when you do that?

    No, thank you for making this absolutely awesome tool. :)

    Gah! Has been working fine until 1060.

    Running latest RTK (r10 a10-3), what is this error:
    I couldn't find it in the server logs... It said something about a GC Overhead limit? And it had your name in it everywhere.
    I have a feeling this is because of memory errors? But I am not having any "System time change" errors of any sort before the problem..
    5gig memory server
    40+ plugins
    Someone was spamming /suicide (they kept on being denied access to use it...).

  28. No configuration or logs posted, only a complaint? I promise you this wrapper has been working hard for me for over a month without errors. If you give us more information, we the community may be able to help you get it set up right or point out the error. Personally, I'm going to lean toward you configured the wrapper to listen on the same port as the server.

    Alright, planning to make a video on how to set up a server from scratch with RToolkit. I hope I can start tomorrow, if not, I'll make it in the weekend. :)

    It shows me a list of commands :l and i havent edited anything in the rtoolkit startup script! :l can you tell me what
    it says inside your starup script maybe? =p
    I got it to work =D thank you all for your help! especially you efstajas! <3 you all!
    *EDIT* nvm, i get it to run whit it , but can't get it to auto restart? please, just tell me what says inside your startup script (the rtoolkit) except the pass and user, and i'll be greatfull!
  31. Offline


    No problem. :) The auto startup things are not configured in the script, but in toolkit -> There is something like "restart-delay". If you set it, for example, to 4h, the server will restart every 4 hours. I think it's also possible to set it to times of the day, e.g. 01:10, which will restart the server every day at ten after one. Multiple values are also possible, as far as I remember. Be sure to make a .stopwrapper and then start it again with the bat afterwards, so the wrapper reads the changes in the config file.
