    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.)

    Creepers aren't players, though, so they're logged as Environment. TNT explosions are an entirely different matter.

    Is this supposed to show who started a fire? because for me it still only tells you if you find the block they ignited...

    Ok a quick question, I finally figured out how to install the MySQL databses. But I have no BB comands in-game, I can get a list of commands but nothing at all shows in my screen or shell command, I get no errors in ssh other than no help files. Any suggestions?, it creates the db and tables okay as far as Ican tell. The code is listed below.

    I really hate how unreliable big brother is. It doesn't log some things, and I sometimes think it deletes the database every time i reload.

    I was installing the mod but when I try to use the commands like /bb stick it just come up "command unrecognised by BigBrother" was is the problem? and no I dont have MySQL.

    About TNT, does it not save the TNT block when you rollback? For example, I placed a TNT block 10 minutes ago. I ignited the TNT 5 minutes ago. Now, I want to rollback the damage and ignite of the tnt but STILL keep the TNT block so I rolled everything back 6 minutes ago. Everything is back to normal but TNT block is no longer there. Is this intended or a bug? I'm not sure.


    Edit: I think it's a bug. I was able to rollback the ignite and keep the tnt block. However, the igniting it by a lever will cause it to disappear after rollback.

    Just wanted to say: thank you for an invaluable plugin and for continuing development on it!

    add a time based player rollback, so it does not roll back to before they joined, so you can roll back just to a certain time, like /bb rollback shilfinger 2d
    so you can roll them back 2 days, just a suggestion, but i think it would be helpful

    That's caused by groupmanager. Switch to Permissions. We do not support GroupManager since it's buggier than BigBrother.

    What errors? What version of CB? What other plugins are in play?

    Supposed to, yes. I'll see if I can fix it.

    Are any other plugins using /bb?

    What doesn't log? What database are you using? Do you get any errors?

    /bb rollback shilfinger t:2d

    I dont get any errors, but when i FTP to my server and try to upload it, it never uploads into my plugins folder. I dont have this issue with any other plugin.

    Will i lose anything if i switch to permissions and can you link the right one cuz idk which one is the right 1

    N3X15 is what I test with, but it's interchangeable with 2.7.4 in terms of compatibility with Big Brother. The config files are wildly different between them, though, so if you're starting out fresh, use 3.1.6.

    chmod 755 BigBrother.jar (your permissions on that file got screwy)

    What do u mean by that?

    Bigbrother isn't working, it just comes with use /bb help, i type that and bam the same message. NO commands work :( latest bb 1.9
  18. Offline


    Ensure that you have the appropriate permissions on BigBrother.jar, otherwise you can't upload. This isn't a bug in BB, you just need to learn how to use the server.

    They work for me, what version of CraftBukkit are you using?

    Um I'm not sure 928 maybe? Permissions... I'm op, with all permisions

    I'm getting the hang of using my server, i've had it for a month now, but i never used chmod, so i don't know how to do that or where to access that.

    nothing else uses the /bb command for me, I am using logblock now in any event for the time being, I would like to use bb but no go atm. Had it working before but it just wont give me any commands, I type them in and get no feedback at all, I griefed a block and tried /bb log, /bb stick 1 but to no avail. Will keep looking into it, I might find something, you never know. Thanks anyway N3xi5

    Why does it downgrade my CraftBukkit to 535? It also downgrades my Permissions to 3.1.5

    @N3X15: For instance, some person built a word-art statue that says "Lag". It is recent, and I can't see who made it. I can see who made some older things, such as my mansion for instance.

    thank you n3x i couldnt figure that out from the tutorial i read, this is very helpfull, many players were upset that when they griefed they lost their homes cuz of rollback on their character, i will start using that

    Uh, what? BigBrother doesn't mess with anything except itself.

    will text in sign also be restored?
  29. Offline


    Idea: In addition to rollbacks why not have "RollForwards"?
    This would be great for when the server crashes and you know exactly how long ago it has been since a crash.
    Kinda like a redraw all actions logged by BigBrother starting at a specified time and an end time IF specified.
    Since everything is already logged I imagine it could be as easy as reversing some code. (We all know it's not that easy though.)

    @N3X15 can you please make a statement to my 2 points?

    Hey mate, the link to your plugin is broken?
    Can you sort it, really need BB.

    Oh, P.S. Great work, thanks.
