v0.12 Released - Bukkit version selection | 0 Comments

0.12 has just been pushed to live and allows you to select which version of CraftBukkit you wish to use from Release, Beta or Dev builds.  Simply choose the version you want in the server settings screen, save and restart your server.

It also automatically selects the relevant Bukkit version for download as this step seemed to be missed out by many people when trying to use Bukkit, admiteddly it wasn't made clear in the UI but it surprised me how many people struggled with this.

If you have updates enabled, this should show up for you within an hour, if you wish to update manually select the "Settings" menu and click "Run updates now".

See this post for how to add automatic updating if you don't have it already.

UPDATE: If you are seeing the following error:

(web) Parameterized query 'UPDATE YAMSSettings SET 
SettingValue=@value WHERE SettingName=@name;' expects a parameter value 
which was not supplied. Parameter name: @value

v0.11 pushed to live | 0 Comments

I have just pushed v0.11 to the live update system that has the following changes:

  • [DLL] Make overviewer work again
  • [ALL] Housekeeping/cleaning up
  • [DLL] Support both login strings so Tekkit and other packs based on older MC versions still show users.
  • [WEB] Order of parameters on come commands has changed.
  • [WEB] Add help menu and uservoice tag to admin

Version history is available on the Wiki at all times.

This update should fix the biggest bugs people are having, mostly to do with differing versions of Minecraft and the way Mojang change player handling and other commands.

If you have updates enabled, this should show up for you within an hour, if you wish to update manually select the "Settings" menu and click "Run updates now".

If you don't have automatic updates on, add it as a scheduled job like this:

  1. Click "Settings" -> "Scheduled Jobs"
  2. Click "Add Job"
  3. Select "Check for Updates" in the drop down
  4. Make the time * 00 for updating every hour. Set it to a specific time if you just want to check once a day.

If you experience any issues with the update, head over to the support section.
