    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.)

    Congrats that everything got straightened out!

    I rely on this plugin way too much for my small server. Got a couple young teens and sometimes they get into fights.

    Same error here.
    BB does work, but the console is so spammy so I decided not to use it.
    From 16mb to 18mb in 30 sec.

    Found a rather nasty bug. 2 days ago my log was at 60 million entries. Today, it's at 170 million and lava logging is off. I found out the reason today when i tried to log a random blockbreak - sometimes up to 4000 versions of an entry are being submitted to the database:

    Show Spoiler

    That is a single page from phpMyAdmin of a single location of a single time :p I'm not sure if its just block breaks/place its kinda hard to tell when each database query takes like 2 minutes <.<

    Hi there,
    I really love this plugin. It's easy to rollback everything you don't want... A must have for every server- owner. :)
    Anyway, I experienced a strange behavior on my server the last weeks. It's always running fine, but suddenly, it lagged terribly. This happened really often, so I took a look into the log... And always right before my players were reporting the lag, BigBrother said that it cleared lots of entries because they were too old. Maybe it was just a concidence, but could the problem maybe be BigBrother?
    I'm running Build 818 and some older Version of BigBrother... How can I exactly see the version number btw?

    can please anyone answer?

    I would assume it means it won't log those blocks
  14. Offline


    Do you NEED mysql for this? I couldn't figure out how to set it up, that shit looked complecated
  15. Offline


    Would you rather it create a file for every block destroyed?
    Running MySQL queries is a lot faster then creating a new file. So yes, you do NEED MySQL for this.

    What operating system are you using to host your server?
  16. Offline


    You do not need MySQL but the performance will be better if you do. H2SQL works fine with BigBrother. I used H2 for some time before I knew how to set up MySQL on my server. MySQL is worth it in the long run, but if you are setting up a small server H2 will be fine and easy to set up.

    Can I get a link for the 1.5_01 compatible BigBrother, ive had to downgrade my server due to how crappy 1.6 server is and now bigbrother doesnt just says searching.. when i use /bb here
  18. I love this mod its great~ but....about a day ago all the big brother commands stopped working is there anyway to fix this?

    Does bigbrother work with Permissions 3.x now?
  20. Offline


    Seeing how there hasn't been an update since the post at the top of this very page of the thread, I would say it's safe to assume that it still doesn't work... At least on 818, BigBrother (build 490) doesn't work with Permisions 3.1.4 Why this plugin has the power to shut down permissions is extremely vexing.

    I would kill for a link to a plugin that is similar, but actually works with the newest permissions.

    The reason I asked was because the first post looked a little different so I thought there might have been an update or something. It doesn't hurt to ask to be sure.

    Can you possibly fill in the main parts of the wiki? Parts like the configuration etc

    BigBrother seems to be using a lot of my server memory, any way I can improve this?
  25. Logblock? It does exactly the same thing. I'm not sure if it works with Permissions 3.x, though.

    I'm using Windows XP.

    My server is using like 200mb more ram after installing this. HOLYSHIT

    How much more of an impact does bigbrother take compared to logblock?
  28. Offline


    Yeah this plugin shouldn't use that mush ram and cpu. @N3X15 is it a bug or it always uses that much?

    Works great with P3

    lol 200 mb.
    My server uses ..... over 7gigs.....

    This is confirmed working great with P3.1.5b :) Using #490 + CB#848 + Mysql.

    7gb ram for bigbrother? I think you didn't understand him, he said that when he installed BigBrother his ram usage gone up with 200mb ram
