    Important Crap

    I'm done, but BB isn't.
    I've got 10 developers on the contributors' list who supposedly want to help, but I haven't heard a word from them since the day I added them. BigBrother's so full of bugs now that I don't know where to start, and I simply don't have the time or patience to work on it anymore. If you want something that works, pick up LogBlock. I'm fucking done. I updated it to "run" on 1060, but that's as far as I'm taking this. If you still want to help, email me at [email protected] and give me a rundown of your experience in coding plugins so I know you'll do something.​
    UPDATE: 3 developers have been added to the repo, but I'm waiting for them to get familiarized and start committing before I declare this crisis over. I appreciate the support and help that has been thrown this way. If you'd still like to help, but don't know how to code, there are many other ways to contribute. See the Contributors section for more info.​

    BigBrother is a powerful plugin that enables you to investigate roll back griefing via a large and all-knowing database. You have a choice between using immensely powerful commands to search an area for changes, or you can whack a block with a stick or place a log to see changes within a single block.

    • /bb log - Gives you the BigBrother Multipurpose Tool, or a simple log. Hit something with it to see changes in that spot, and place it if the block you're check is non-solid, like water, lava or air.
    • /bb done - Removes the log from your inventory, and gives you back any items it replaced.
    • Want to check an entire area? Use /bb here to list who changed what!
    • Need to roll back EvilGuy and DoucheBug's edits? Use /bb rollback EvilGuy DoucheBug!
      • Have to roll back edits up to 5 minutes ago? Simple! /bb rollback t:5m
      • Need to only roll back within a certain radius? /bb rollback r:<radius-in-blocks>
      • Roll back specific actions with /bb rollback a:10,BLOCK_PLACE
    • If you screw up, /bb undo
    • (NEW) /bb history "Suspicious Guy" to see that player's recent history! (add pg:# to go to page #)
    • Mow your lawn with /bb mowlawn!
    See the full list of commands and Permissions nodes here.


    [​IMG](Yes, stationary_* and regular blocks got reversed, this is fixed.)​

    Need Help?

    • What version of CraftBukkit and BigBrother? If you don't know, type /version and /bb version.
    • What database engine are you using? Look at the value for database.type in BigBrother.yml. I use MySQL on my server and test on H2.
    • Do you get any errors? If so, please link to a pastebin with your server.log
    • What steps do I have to take to reproduce this behavior?
    • What other plugins are you using?
    Known Issues
    • Everything listed here
    • ItemCraft is not supported due to it sending unexpected NULLs via Block.getType(). Can be fixed by adding a new enum value for unknown blocks.
    • Bugs everywhere, stopped counting.
    Coming Soon
    • /bb history - Gets the history of a player
    • Fixed /bb update
    • Updated API
    • Externally accessible API
    • Custom Action IDs (for WorldEdit support, etc.)

    Can you give us a player history command?

    We are testing this now. First reaction: "Awesome." It looks like a lot of the bugs in the old version have been fixed.

    That's one thing I'd really appreciate the developers concentrating on. If Big Brother goes down (stops logging), then griefers can have a field day. Making sure Big Brother never goes down is really important. Top on my list for the plugin.

    Great job!

    I tried to make it autoreconnect, but the entire database backend needs an overhaul again, and this time, I want to do some UML diagrams before I start breaking stuff.

    Make a feature request. Right now, I'm focusing on bugs (and sleep x_x), but if you make a feature request on the bug tracker, I'll get around to it.

    Thanks, Juze.

    FYI, H2 errors on start-up have been fixed (maybe). If you see them still, report them!

    Heya.. just to let you know i think theres an error in the /bb here since when i use it it throws back the wrong amount of people having modified an area.. e.g only I have modified this area below yet see what it says...


    I also get this on start-up
    and this after rolling back and then '/bb here' on that same location

    Great work - I am looking forward to the new release. The old one produced a race condition once in a while which bogged both MySQL and Minecraft down.

    This plugin is awesome but I am having some issues with parts of it.
    When I try rollback chest changes i get this error in the console...

    18:40:47 [WARNING] [BBROTHER] Caught exception when rolling back a DELTA_CHEST

    And the items don't get returned.
    I have Lockette installed, but tried removing it, but it still did the same.

    Is this a known issue?

  15. Offline


    The issue may be with LWC, I am removing it now to check.

    EDIT: I cant tell where it is conflicting. It's not LWC.

    On linux (ubuntu) its trying to download some file (forget the name but the link is Lol sorry for bad file description if you don't know what I'm talking about I can find the link url when I get home (I tried going to it on my desktop)

    But it says like "Downloading file: blablabla 'file url'
    and waits like 5 minutes then moves on. This happens each time I restart the server and is prventing me from using "/reload" because it makes it time out.

    When I went to the link in firefox it didn't exist and I'm assuming thats why the server stalls when trying to get it.

    With MYSQL it seems to work for most part, PLAYER_PICKUP_ITEM and PLAYER_DROP_ITEM seem to generate errors though. perhaps it is because i use bukkit 646?
    edit tried bukkit 677 same thing.

    This is not critical, for my part i just turned that logging off. Thank you for updating BB, i tried to settle for LogBlock, but it lack proper chest logging.

    Thank you -so- much for this fix for the log spam. I woke up to a server with a 3 gig log that wasn't saving anything, allowing people to duplicate items somehow. This fixed it, and trimmed down my insane log size. Thanks!

    Got the same errors with CB674, turned off too.

    By the way, does someone know what's the meaning of the delta_chest data ( {0:0:+-3:0:0;1:324:0:0:0;2:0:0:0:0;3:0:0:0:0;4:0:0:0:0;5:0:0:0:0;6:0:0:0:0;7:0:0:0:0;8:0:0:0:0;9:0:0:0:0;10:0:0:0:0;11:0:0:0:0;12:0:0:0:0;13:0:0:0:0;1 ) ???

    First error can be ignored, second has been fixed for the next Recommended build.

    I wasn't able to get the Linux AMD64 library from tkelly's server before it went offline :(
    Please, please, please file a bug report for this stuff, because I need to get some sleep.

  25. i've tried to connect to my local databaes on localhost (with correct info), and it spits out this error:

    SEVERE] [BBROTHER] Error getting a connection. Make sure your database settings are correct!
    com.mysql.jdbc.exceptions.jdbc4.CommunicationsException: Communications link failure
    Last packet sent to the server was 0 ms ago.
    Caused by: Connection timed out
    However, when i attempt to connect to any external databases (not localhost), it works just fine...

    What exactly does that error mean? Couldn't find the mysql host? Super lag when attempting to connect? Incorrect name/passwords? etc etc
    Thanks :)

    and will it run on RB CB 617

    I'm using the 670 build with the latest BB snapshot, and I get:

    2011-04-14 10:09:09 [SEVERE] Could not load 'plugins/BigBrother.jar' in folder 'plugins': author is of wrong type
    org.bukkit.plugin.InvalidDescriptionException: author is of wrong type

    Is this expected since the plugin is technically for the next RB? I have everything working on 670 :*( I don't wanna upgrade.
  30. Offline


    I have worldedit installed and it definitely doesn't track changes. I'm guessing because block place/destroy events aren't triggered when using world edit?
