    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.)

    I'm guessing my database settings are fucking up, but since I'm not the main hoster of this server, but just an admin with the ability to update the plugins and files, is there any way for me to fix this without having to dig into MySQL?

    @Whysopro: No. Hopefully the password has changed and some funny guy didn't tell you.
  4. Offline


    Probably, But when I tried changing the ''Password'' field in the BigBrother.yml in the plugins/bigbrother directory, and I put in the old pass between the '', like
    , It still said
    In the server log. So maybe I am entering the MySQL password in the wrong place or so?

    @Whysopro: Meehh .. sry didn't saw the "using password: no" line ;) thanks for highligthing it :3

    Using password means that there was no password send. are you shure the format is like 'yourpasswordhere' and no tabs used?

    What bukkit build do you use?

    I'm using Bukkit #689, and BB 1.8-SNAPSHOT. It does not log players in SeenPlayers.txt
    Is this a BB problem, or a compatibility error with the new build that will be fixed?
  8. Offline


    I think I'm going to sit the 1.5 update out until they have a recommended build~ Anyone else doing the same? BB + Errors = too much. lol =) Can't wait for it though! Keep it up @N3X15
  9. Offline


    Jepp that would be the best. Waiting until next CB RB is released or you'll end up in patching every time a new build comes out =)

    Okay, finals are pretty much over with except for a test on Saturday, so back to work. (Was going to post this last night, but I was exhausted from lack of sleep).

    I do not receive this error on my version. Please redownload from Jenkins.

    SeenPlayers isn't used any more, they're all stored in the database in the bbusers table.

    Logging's been changed to provide more information on these errors. Please redownload and re-report the error.

    705 isn't a Recommended Build. I'm only dealing with Recommended Builds at the moment.
  13. Offline


    The database update to 1.8 failed because player 'Environment' had too many something... How do I delete the database in order to start over from the start of your instructions?

    Also when I try to use the command specified during server startup to convert to the ISAM engine, I get an error stating that no database is selected.

    Ugh, sleep for 6 hours, wake up to a new page... *Grumbles*

    Topic updated so I top getting requests like this :|

    You need to enable it in your config, and THAT requires CB to support opening doors. Last time I checked, it was buggy, but afaik, it might be fixed.

    Don't panic. Do you get any messages in your server log? Did you set up MySQL in BigBrother.yml?

    Seems to be working fine on the latest build. It may not track some things like doors yet, because of the updates, but who cares! The majority of it works :D

    Im still on [344] jeez all the other higher builds LAG MONSTER!
    [344] is great! , but beyond that (Well only just tried [350] and [351] HUGE LAG!
    Back to [344] lol i cant handle the other ones and neither can anyone on the server.... please fix lag issues in new builds :(
  23. Offline


    [350] and [351]? You might want to recheck the recommended builds page, the latest one right now for bukkit is [684]. You can find it here

    Im talking about the big brother builds.... lol
    How would i be using big brother 1.8 [344] on CB [344] ... ?
    Where did i say im running [300~] of CB lol, this is the bigbrother thread bud.
  25. Offline


    *face-palm*, didn't notice those numbers in the change log lol. I'm assuming your server has a good amount of RAM to run on as well? BB takes up about 60Mb of RAM at the start while running on my server.
  26. Offline


    I have 8GB of dedicated ram on my server.
    Im running [684] + [344] at the moment.
    When i do [684] + [350+] it lags insanely...
    However will update on my situation soon after testing 700+ *CB*

    on CB 711 and with any version of BB i get this when rolling back with radius

    is there a way to fix the /bb help menu so that there are actual pages instead of just displaying a bunch of help that i cant see?

    does this work well with new craftbukkit builds updated to 1.5?
